I invite you to join me on this amazing 5-day trekking adventure in the Julian Alps. We’ll hike the beautiful Soča River Trail and climb Mount Rombon (2208m) in one of the most beautiful regions in Europe!

If you are looking for a unique hiking experience this summer, the beautiful country of Slovenia is a perfect choice! Over the course of 5 days, we’ll visit several spectacular natural spots in this picturesque area of the Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park.

This unique trek has so much to offer. I’ll guide you to the top of Rombon at a height of about 2000 m above sea level where you’ll witness stunning views of the Soča valley. Hiking along the Soča River Trail we’ll stride all the way from the source of Soča towards Bovec. Slemenova Špica (1911m), Krn lakes and the pristine Booka Waterfalls are a few attractions in the region. The Vrata valley in the heart of the Julain Alps, leads all the way to the Triglav North face.

As we hike, you will see exceptional landscapes of the majestic peaks from Mala Mojstrovka to Jalovec. It will be interesting to sight the lovely footbridges at several points across the emerald Soča river.

So, if you are willing to trek around this picture-perfect region of the Julian Alps and witness these wonderful landscapes, please contact me. It will all be worth it!
