I will guide you on these fun, informative, fascinating and plain gorgeous day hikes in the Triglav National Park, Slovenia, an area of raw natural beauty almost unparalleled in Europe, with a richly diverse array of flora and fauna leading to towering and majestic snowy mountains, mesmerizing and tranquil waterfalls and waterways, and even an old WW1 battlefield in which remnants remain.
Triglav National Park lies in the Northwestern part of the country, and is Slovenia’s only national park, and thus an extremely popular tourist destination. It makes up approximately 4% of the countries landmass, and its landscape and terrain are dominated by the towering Julian Alps, featuring Mt. Triglav.
Our day hikes begin on the outskirts of the park, from where we then head to the best parts.
The enormous breadth of landscape, scenery and terrain in the park ensures no few hours are ever the same, as in the morning we can be standing on the peak of a snow-capped mountain, and that very afternoon undertake a relaxing and refreshing swim in the magnificent emerald green River Soca.
One of the highlights for many people is a visit to an old WW1 battle site in the Southwest of the park, with the remains of several fortresses and bunkers still visible.
The huge amount of flora and fauna in the park is truly spectacular, and there will be ample time for us to stop, admire and learn about the many different species and varieties that call the park home. If we are lucky we will witness some of the animals lurking in their natural environment.
After a whole day of sightseeing and discovery, we can either leave the park or stay overnight in one of the huts nestled within, so as to ensure we are ready for more hiking in this wonderful and amazing slice of Slovenian paradise.

Triglav National Park, Slovenia
Meet in the morning on the outskirts of park, hike all day in park, finish by either leaving the park or staying in hut overnight.
I live in Mojstrana, the main starting point for climbing Mount Triglav, the highest peak in the Julian Alps.
I started climbing when I was in Elementary School. I did my first climbing expedition before turning 16 years old: we climbed in the Lofoten Island in Norway. And I was hooked!
I later entered the Mountain Rescue Service very young and saw the mountains from a less friendly point of view. Since then, I have visited many interesting mountains around the world but for me, apart from the Julian Alps, the most beautiful mountains are the Nepalese Himalayas.
I organized the first trekking there 25 years ago and now I visit Nepal and the Himalayas at least twice a year. I have been fully engaged in the training of Slovenian mountain leaders there.
As part of the Mountain Safety team, I have been dealing with avalanches and avalanche rescue for the past 20 years. I am a certified UIMLA leader and the President of the Association of Mountain Leaders of Slovenia, where I am also a trainer/instructor.
My specialties are the lesser known paths in the Julian Alps (Triglav National Park), several days trekking across the Julian Alps (hut to hut), trekking in various Balkan countries (Bosnia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Romania) and of course trekking in the Nepalese Himalayas.
