The Julian Alps are ideally set up for multi-day trekking. Differing in scenery from the Western Alps, the views of limestone peaks can be enchanting as well as simply jaw-dropping.

This holiday sets off from the shores of Lake Bohinj on the Southern edge of the Julian Alps, for a 5-day trek. Reach your first hut above forests with high mountain views to Triglav. Three huts follow, making a clever route that gives a huge insight into the area.

This is a self-guided walking holiday, so you are free to complete the walks as you choose: we arrange everything for you, including booking your accommodation and providing you with routecards and maps for the walking. 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 4 nights of the trek and in a friendly family-run 4-star hotel in Bohinj on the first, and last two, nights of the holiday.

Baggage transfer

None of the 4 huts on our Hut-to-Hut route can be reached by road. Thus we don't offer a baggage service on this route. Your first and last nights are in the same village and you are welcome to leave luggage with your host.


Hut payments

Uniquely among Alpine Exploratory's routes, at some Julian Alps huts there is no mechanism for us to pay your hut fees. On this Hut-to-Hut route this applies to 3 of your 4 huts. We make your reservations and leave you to pay the warden directly. Our prices reflect this. In your info pack we advise on how the huts work and on how many Euros to take for each night. To plan in advance, please assume 25 to 40 euros per person per night for these 3 huts including dinner, breakfast and a drink. The amount varies among huts; it is also influenced by the choice of dormitory or private room, and how much you order from the bar!


Alternatives

The Julian Alps Hut-to-Hut route allows a few variations:

Make it 4 stages
The stages are not overly long, designed to allow side exploration using the Slovenian maps that we supply in your pack. Fast groups might prefer to take 4 days over the trek. Please ask us to advise on stage lengths and amounts of ascent.

Stay in extra huts
Our route skirts the side of Triglav, purposefully to avoid the summit unless parties would like to take a detour under their own steam. This is possible within the (otherwise short) day in question, but it is possible to add 1 hut night to make this detour easier.

Bohinj or Bled
Please ask us to advise on extra nights after your trek, in either Bohinj or the busier resort of Bled. The lakeside setting of Bled is charming, but please ask our candid thoughts on this and other options in Slovenia. (We love Ljubljana!)


Happy clients

"Enjoyed the area around the Triglav lakes hut (very good walks and great flowers) and also the last day going up Vogel (wonderful airy walking).

"A well organised holiday with great attention to detail - thank you!"
