    Guided hut-to-hut hiking tour Julian Alps, Slovenia

      Starting out from the fabulous Lake Bohinj we will head to the lovely alpine pastures, meet the local shepherds and cheese makers, taste some fresh dairy products and admire the traditional alpine architecture. The hike will take us across lonely summits and grassy slopes towards the highest peaks of Slovenian Alps. We will sleep in small mountain huts and have the option to make an extra 'sunset hike' to one of the nearby viewpoints. After climbing one of the highest Slovenian mountains (Mt. Kanjavec) we will descent to the valley of 7 Triglav lakes, explore its wild karstic terrain and finish our tour at Lake Bohinj. Finish this great hiking trip with a refreshing jump into the crystal clear Lake Bohinj and get a transfer back to Bled or Ljubljana.

       

      These are the hiking "statistics" of the usual hiking tour:

      • Day 1: 10 km / elevation +950 m, -300 m / approx. 5-6 hours
      • Day 2: 14 km / elevation +700 m, -750 m / approx. 6-7 hours (the hardest day)
      • Day 3: 12 km / elevation +200 m, -700 m / approx. 4 hours

      There are some possible extensions for the "extra fit" hikers, but it all depends on the weather conditions and group's wishes. A reasonable fitness level is required for you to fully enjoy the hike. If you decide for a private tour, we will adapt the itinerary 100% to your wishes.

       

      If you like nature & mountains, want to breathe in some fresh air & enjoy amazing alpine scenery, you will love this hike! The tour offers a lot of fun for children as well, if they are fit enough. :)

      Review by Jeroen from Belgium, visited us in August 2016

      I had booked a last-minute to Slovenia and wanted to really explore the Triglav national park region in depth. Since I didn't have a lot of time to prepare and it was high season I contacted Miha to see what my options were of joining a guided tour. Miha was very helpfull and responded very quickly to all my questions. I ended up doing the 3 day hut-to-hut trek in the julian alps, which I couldn't recommend more! The views were amazing, the trek offered a lot of variation, both in scenary and intensity, and the group atmosphere was great. Be prepared for some serious alpine hiking though, the second day (including the Kanjavec) is a long one for which some basic fitness level is needed. Our guide was however very aware of this and left it to the group to decide if we wanted to climb to the top of Kanjavec or not. For me personally this climb was the highlight of the trip so if you have the choice and are not afraid of hights, I'd say do it! :-)
