THE MOUNTAINS ARE A GETAWAY FROM EVERYDAY WORRIES
There are not many things that are more suitable for the development of children and the happiness of the family, such as hiking trails, exploring the mountains and experiencing the natural beauties. The mountains offer extraordinary views, soothe and regulate children’s energy, thus connecting families even more firmly into a happy unit. The mountains are a getaway from everyday worries, they are beautiful, the most sparkling children’s “playground”. Exploring the mountains, high mountain pastures, crystal clear lakes, streams, experiencing mountain huts, meeting other hikers … all this is a useful school for life.
EVEN FOR FAMILIES WITH SMALL CHILDREN
The Julian Alps with the central area of Triglav National Park offer children and families wonderful hiking trails, exploring the scenic peaks, an abundance of natural phenomena and also an insight into the rich history of the area. On the trails west of Triglav, you can find many military fortifications and heavy iron equipment, which testifies to the high-altitude battles that took place here over a hundred years ago. Many of the hiking trails that run in the park lead to high mountain huts. From the hut then the paths lead to the next mountain hut or at least past the mountain bivouac. The latter is important because, thanks to the infrastructure, exploring the high mountains becomes accessible to a wider circle of mountain lovers. Even for families with small children.
TREKKING TAKES PLACE ON WELL-MARKED MOUNTAIN TRAILS
I can say that one of the most beautiful hut-to-hut treks, suitable for families, is the one that connects the Bohinj valley with its famous lake, through pastures and high mountain lakes all the way to the Soča valley, which lies at the west end of the park. Trekking takes place on well-marked mountain trails, which are also safe due to the easier and less open terrain. The paths are not too demanding, they usually ascend and descend slightly, with a small daily altitude difference in ascent, which means the terrain is moderately varied. During the four days of trekking, families sleep in three different huts, where there is a basic culinary offer and some modest comfort in an otherwise pleasant environment.
On average, we walk for three to five hours each day, which can be a bit challenging for some, so it is necessary to prepare properly for each stage. However, the mountain environment is picturesque, varied, full of little secrets and something new awaits us at every turn, so children can easily complete the hiking stages – of course, since the trekking, with a carefully prepared route, a selection of suitable stops and a suitable length, is intended especially for children and their parents.

The Julian Alps offer one of the most beautiful hut-to-hut treks in the Alps of Europe, suitable for families. It is unique, especially in terms of natural resources and prestigious environment.
