Triglav 7 Lakes Hiking Traverse
1-day hike in Seven Triglav Lakes Valley, Julian Alps
Composed of 10 (not seven) different lakes in a karst alpine valley that sits just above the treeline, the Seven Lakes Valley is an immensely scenic place to head out on a hike. Enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountain scenery and take in the unique geological features of the aptly named Sea of Stone Valley.
Best time to visit:
May to September
What’s the weather like?
During the summer, average daily temperatures in the Seven Lakes Valley hover around 10 ºC. The valley receives moderate rainfall throughout the summer
How to get there:
Any trip to the Seven Lakes Valley will begin with a flight into the Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport (LJU). From here it is easy enough to hire a car or bus and make the short drive up north to the start of the trip
Situated just to the southwest of Mount Triglav in Triglav National Park, the Seven Lakes Valley is a hiker’s paradise. Heading out on a hiking adventure to see all 10 of the lakes is a great way to spend any summer holiday. Enjoying the immaculate scenery as well as getting the chance to see the valley from below by climbing up surrounding mountains is always a treat. Among the most popular mountains to hike around the valley (other than Triglav) are Slemenova špica, Prisojnik, Razor and Bovški Gamsovec. From the summit of each of these scenic mountains are incredible views into the valley as well as out over the rest of the Julian Alps
