Meals: None

Day 2 Setting Out in the Julian Alps

Your first day of hiking is here! Start with a transfer to the trailhead, where you’ll begin following a well-marked path through a cute alpine farm. Consider stopping in for some fresh cheese or milk before heading up a mountain that doesn’t see too many hikers. This quiet trail gives you unspoiled, private views over the Julian Alps.

Day 3 The Heartland of Triglav National Park

Fuel up with breakfast, then hit the trail outside of your hut. Begin by crossing high alpine meadows carpeted by flowers, some of Slovenia’s highest mountains coming into view. If you’re keen for a challenge, you can opt to climb Mt. Kanjavec, one of the highest peaks in the heart of the Julian Alps. If you’re really brave, you can actually climb Mt. Triglav today, bagging Slovenia’s highest peak! The upper part of the hike involves a via ferrata course, and we can help you arrange a guide if you’d like.

Whether you take on today’s big climb or not, you’ll be so satisfied once you kick back in your mountain hut.
