Overview

Book
This superb of hut-to-hut trekking holiday takes you on a spectacular journey across the Julian Alps of Slovenia to the summit of Mt Triglav and is impossible to beat! Straddling Italy and Slovenia the beautiful Julian Alps offers some of the most impressive mountain scenery in Europe including Triglav National Park which is home to alpine pastures, pine forests, clear streams, crystal lakes, mountain huts and a rich variety of jaw-dropping trails. From the lakeside town of Bled we head to the breath-taking glacier lake of Bohinj and ascend to Crna Prst (1844m.) which offers a stunning panorama. Keeping high well spend the next few days on a wonderful ridge above lush alpine valleys before we cross the magnificent Skrbina Pass (1891m). 

A gentler day in the Valley of the Seven Lakes sees us arrive on the shoulders of the highest mountain in Slovenia, the spectacular triple-headed Triglav (2864m). The climb to the top is outstanding and excitingly airy along a jaw-dropping trail which offers some brilliant scrambling and sections of via ferrata. The view from the summit was described by Baedeker as "one of the most sublime among the Alps" and well be rewarded with an extensive panorama across the Julian Alps, Karavanke Mountains, Kamnik Alps and as far as neighbouring Austria and Italy. Using traditional alpine huts this unforgettable traverse is topped off with a final night in the alpine town of Lake Bled.

I enjoy point to point trekking, and the itinerary and pace suited me perfectly. The scenery in the high mountains was amazing! We were particularly lucky in the designated guides, and in a group of people who got on extremely well with each other. Overall a tremendous holiday that I would highly recommend.

I cannot say enough good things about our guides. They took their jobs so seriously on the trail, watching out for everyone, with an incredible ability to pay attention to what was going on with each group member. They also took the time to train us on the trail about foot placement, breathing, everything to make us more successful. They were friendly, fun, and amazingly patient with any who lagged behind. They were also willing to help each of us in an individualized way. When a group member fell and cut open his head, they acted professionally in taking care of that member and the rest of the group on the tricky descent in the rain. THE BEST GUIDES YOU COULD HAVE!!!

Our guide was great, he took care of everything for us from translating to looking after us throughout the days. Top guide. Gave us lots of sight seeing and restaurant recommendations for after the hike also. I loved everything about this trip. We were well looked after in every hut, the food was good, and everyone was really friendly. The terrain is amazing! It's very different to Scotland and every day was something different and interesting. Loved this holiday. One happy person. Great trip all round, would to it again in a heart beat!

Our trip leader was a very relaxed tour leader, sometimes well ahead of the group, but certainly very service minded when arriving at the huts explaining all facilities, hassling along food service etc. His guiding on climbing Triglav was very good and highly responsible. The trek in Triglav National Park was lovely with beautiful montain scenery. Not sure I particularly enjoyed climbing Triglav..., but feels like a great achievement!

This is a great trekking holiday. Spectacular point to point walking. The Triglav summit is exposed but exhilarating, with fixed chains I felt safe the entire time and our guides David and Miha were superb. In the first week of September the trails were virtually empty. The hut food was good, you don't get many showers, but I don't think any of us cared :-)

Great hiking. Some tough bits but the days were never too long. Knowledgeable and friendly guides. We unfortunately walked in a cloud for a few days but whenever the clouds parted the views were gorgeous. The huts are generally basic but fine - you appreciate a bit of warmth and comfort food after the hiking!

Excellent walking. Full of challenges. Brilliant guides (Miha and David - thank you so much). Tip 1 - it's easy to miss that lunch and water need to be purchased each day. You should budget at least €150 for this. Tip 2 - stay an extra night in Ribcev Laz, on the shores of Lake Bohinj, at the end of the trip. Lovely spot, and an opportunity for some extra walking.

I've just returned from a challenging but really enjoyable hiking holiday in the Julian Alps which are stunning and far less busy than similar Alpine areas further north. Climbing Triglav was awe inspiring and the views from the summit were memorable, the skies having been washed clean by a magnificent storm earlier in the week. Our small group was blessed by having Katja as our guide; always cheerful and encouraging with a lovely sense of humour. Given the earlier storms, she had to rearrange our itinerary from day one which she did seamlessly and without any fuss. Would thoroughly recommend this hike to anybody who fancies a spot of scrambling and ridge walking.
