If you are looking for a different hiking experience this summer, Slovenia is a perfect option! Join me for a 5-day program.

Located in the Northwest of Slovenia, the Julian Alps are one of the most popular destinations for visitors to the country, with the focal point being the mighty Mt. Triglav, the highest point in the country at 2864m and also a national symbol of Slovenia.

In these 5 days, we will make various hiking tours to great natural spots around this area, on the Julian Alps and Triglav national park.

Highlights:
Slemenova Špica (1911m)
Mount Rombon (2208m)
Krn lakes (1391m)
Soca river
Booka Waterfalls
Vrata Valley
Triglav North Face

A particularly impressive day will be 2 and 3 days. In these 2 days I will take you to the top of Rombon from which there is a unique view of the Soča valley. I’ll guide you across the famous Soča River Trail, from the Soča source toward Bovec. A particularly interesting sight is that of the picturesque footbridges that cross the river at several points.

Along the hikes, we will see amazing landscapes of the Julian Alps, such as the peaks from Mala Mojstrovka to Jalovec and climbed to the summit of Rombon, which exceeds 2000 m above sea level.

Take a look at the itinerary below for a more detailed description of each day’s activities.

Dean was very helpful and responsive to our enquiries. He was enthusiastic and devoted to show the prettiest side of Tre Cime to us. Although we were a bit behind, Dean was patient to wait for us and cater to our speed. Great experience!!

Dean is an excellent guide. He\'s friendly and conscientious and throughout or trip was focused on getting us to achieve our hiking goals while being aware of our abilities and experience. We chose a relatively tough hike (8hrs, 1,700m elevation gain) but Dean made sure we completed it safely and at a good pace. He also took photos throughout so we could concentrate on the hiking and shared them with us later. He was also good company on the hike. I would thoroughly recommend his services.
