Overview

Book
Described as one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in Europe, the Julian Alps are dominated by Mount Triglav (2864m), one of the most respected mountains in the world. This combined with the beautiful lake of Bled, ensures the perfect location for a short break and a spot of adventure. This superb journey starts in the stunning town of Bled, with its crystal clear lake and incredible mountain backdrop. From here we head up onto Pokljuka Plateau, a timeless area of alpine meadows, mountain flowers and wildlife, shepherd huts and soaring birds of prey. Following dramatic mountain trails we snake up into the heart of the Julian Alps before setting off along one of the most famous ridge walks in Europe. This stunning section of via ferrata takes us to top of Mount Triglav where the views from the summit are totally jaw dropping and includes a panorama which extends all the way from the Italian Dolomites to the Austrian Alps. This excellent short-break finishes back in Bled, where its laid back atmosphere, pavement cafes and lovely promenade ensure you finish the weekend in style.

A great long weekend trip, organised well by KE and their partner operator. Hotel Astoria was a good quality hotel, and perfectly situated in Bled for a pre- or post-climb exploration of the town and its lake (lake swim highly recommended if good weather). This was a lot of ascent and descent (walking poles very helpful) within the two days of walking, but the feeling of being in the middle (top) of the mountains, and the views and satisfaction of reaching the summit made up for some sore muscles! An excellent group, two great guides (thanks Primoz for the photos you took of us) and a brilliant weekend trip to explore some of Slovenia's beautiful offerings. Highly recommended.

Another very good short break for people with limited time. Excellent guide ,Miha, who paced the trip very well. Only negative point was the hotel Krim, or should that be grim!

The minute we were met at the airport we had a feeling that this would be a good walk. Miha, our guide for the short trip, was a relaxed and informative man who spoke excellent English and did everything he could to make us feel welcome and looked after and he genuinely seemed to enjoy our company. He was passionate about his job, the mountains and his country and was a credit to KE. The walk itself was lovely, through some of the most picturesque countryside I have seen, starting off in woodland and finishing in the spectacular Julian alps. The summit climb was tough with a degree of technicality but well within our abilities and Miha looked after us well making sure we were briefed and trained on the use of our harnesses and that we stayed safe but still enjoyed the climb. Once back from the Summit we stopped briefly at the refuge for lunch before walking down to the transport. Miha took us back a different way, down through some beautiful pastures with a very traditional Alpine feel, all with the Alps as the back drop to the trees and meadows and a constant reminder of our recent climb. The first nights' accommodation was basic but clean, the refuge again was basic but clean and the final hotel, the Astoria, was very nice, clean well presented air-conditioned rooms with great facilities and a fabulous breakfast. All in all a great trip and one I would certainly consider doing again. Challenging but very rewarding.
