Self-Guided Trekking across the Julian Alps

Magnificent mountains that leave you in awe, reflections on the surface of crystal clear Alpine lakes on nearly 2000 meters above sea, the peaceful nature of the Triglav National Park and dramatic views that will follow you every step are every mountain lover’s dream. Escape far away from everydays life, from the city noise and from the crowds. Come with us to the peak of Mt. Triglav and through the famous valley of the seven lakes.


Arrival day

Upon arrival to Ljubljana Airport, you will be transferred to Bohinj Lake, the largest glacial lake in Slovenia. The lake is 2 kilometres wide and 6 kilometres long, with the 13-kilometer hiking path that circles it. It lies in the centre of the Triglav National Park and occupies a dramatic position surrounded by a spectacular mountain ridge. After introductory briefing with our representative, where you will discuss the details of the following trekking, you will have free rest of the day. We recommend you take a walk around the lake (approx. 3 hours) for a nice and easy warm-up to your trekking tour. Read more

Hike to Planika

After breakfast, your walk begins from your accommodation towards village Stara Fužina and further on up, following the Mostnica stream to reach the Mostnica Gorge, where you will pass through a series of canyons. There are some excellent views to the cascades and rapids before the trail opens out to the Voje Valley. This section of the walk passes by meadows and small settlements and later on through a beautiful forest to the Grintovica alpine meadow at around 1200 m. As you ascend the views open out to the surrounding mountains. Take a break at Vodnik Hut where you can order a warm mountain meal before continuing the hike. In about two hours of hiking you reach Planika Hut where you will spend the night. Read more

This morning you have an option to ascend Mt Triglav, which takes about 3 hours in total. The path to the summit is a via ferrata, which is a steep cliff path that has steel cables fixed along the ridge line with steps to the top. Traversing the ridge offers on a clear day magnificent views of surrounding mountains. After enjoying the marvellous views from the top of Mt. Triglav, you will start your descend towards the well-known Triglav Lakes Valley. The main section of the walk passes several lakes and ends at the Triglav Lakes Valley Hut, where you will spend the night. Read more
