SLOVENIA | HUT TO HUT TREKKING | SELF GUIDED OR GUIDED TOUR

JULIAN ALPS TRAVERSE

8-day walking holidays in Slovenia with 6 days of hut-to-hut trekking in the Julian Alps. The Julian Alps Traverse is one of the most spectacular trekkings in Europe. The Julian Alps are considered as one of the most beautiful and best mountain destinations for hiking and multi-days trekking tours. 

The Julian Alps are magical, unique and seductively beautiful. It is an unspoiled mountain world of high peaks, sharp ridges and mountain lakes. The Julian Alps with Julian Alps Traverse are a “must do” – at least once in a life time.

Hike among breathtaking mountain scenery on the flanks and valleys of Mount Triglav, with views of some of the most dramatic peaks in the Julian Alps. On this trekking experience you will enjoy the fresh Slovenian air as you trek the Julian Alps from Kranjska Gora to Tolmin (Soča Valley). This challenging hiking traverse will reward you with mesmerising views of green meadows, deep valleys and, of course, the majestic Mount Triglav. Travel across high passes and through Alpine meadows and recharge at night with delicious mountain cuisine in rustic mountain huts.
