The Julian Alps offer awe-inspiring Alpine walking. Sitting at the far Eastern end of the Alpine chain, mostly in Slovenia, these beautiful beige and light grey coloured mountains rise to a high point of 2,864m at Triglav.
This holiday travels through the deep forests of the South side of the Julian Alps above Lake Bohinj, to reach the famous Triglav Lakes Valley. The high point of the trek is a hut perched high above a deep valley, in a wild upland setting on the edge of the high mountains. Start your trip near the shores of Lake Bohinj, where before your trek you have time for a local daywalk and to prepare. During your 4-day trek you spend 3 nights in mountain huts. At the end of your trek, with two nights back in Bohinj, take in a last walk or see the sights of Lake Bohinj or Bled.
We supply you with our detailed routecards and the local Slovenian maps. You're then free to walk the route as you choose and to explore any other trails you wish; there are small peaks and tempting forest paths off to the side throughout. For the hut nights we book your places but must leave it to you to pay the wardens - your joining notes tell you how much cash to take with you.
Your accommodation is in mountain huts for the 3 nights of the trek and in a family-run 4-star hotel for your first two and last two nights in Bohinj.
