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. For your last day you are based in the valley in Bohinj and can take things easier; perhaps with a local walk or seeing the sights of Lake Bohinj and Lake Bled.

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.
