Description

If you are looking for a perfect week in the Julian Alps this winter, this program might just be exactly what you need! Join me for an 8-day ski touring program, to the best spots, ascents and sites on this Southern Limestone Alps range.

This part of the Slovenian Alps offers amazing winter sports possibilities, and great itineraries. On this program, I will take you to some of its very best attractions.

To begin with, I will meet you at the Ljubljana airport to transfer to the beautiful village of Kranjska Gora. This is where our hotel for all 8 days, the Pri Martinu Inn, is located. Each day we will depart from here to the different point in our itinerary (see day-by-day details below).

Among the main attractions and challenges in this program are:

  • An ascent to Monte Lussari, and the Cima del Cacciatore

  • Climbing Slemenova Spica from the Vrsic pass

  • A 1000 m descent to Planica

  • A descent from the biggest ski resort in the Julian Alps, Sella Nevea – Kanin

  • A short skin/climb to the “Window” in Mont Prestreljenik

  • Climbing Mt Sija

  • An off-piste skiing morning at Vogel

  • A full day full ski touring to the Fussine Lakes and the Mangart saddle 

  • And a full day ski touring in the majestic Mt Mala Mojstrokva, a classic and beautiful mountain

This estimated itinerary is subject to changes depending on snow and weather conditions and further recommendations.

We will also have time to taste the traditional Jota, a typical Slovenian cabbage dish, and an amazing apple strudel, at the wonderful Tamar hut.

Private group tours for 4 to 6 guests are available on request from mid-January until April.
