Description

Join me on this absolutely stunning, beautiful, fun, educational and family-friendly hiking trip in the Triglav National Park, Slovenia, and I promise you will be exposed to and learn about one of the few spots of unspoiled, pristine nature in Europe, as we wind our way around the myriad of waterways, waterfalls, mountains (including Mt. Triglav) and fields of flora and fauna, all while learning about the history and hidden delights of this special place.

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.

We start the trip on the fringes of the national park, before heading in and beginning our exploring in earnest.

There are several truly stunning places we visit, with highlights including the tranquil and emerald green River Soca, where can go for a refreshing swim if the weather is warm enough, the snow-capped and magnificent Julian Alps, and an area Southwest of the Alps where fortresses and bunkers from World War 1 are still visible, as it was the site of several battles.

Along the way we will teach you about the abundance of raw nature that surrounds us, as the sheer scale of flora and fauna, as well as the wide array of biodiversity in the park, provides endlessly fascinating and interesting topics to cover.

There is a special discount for families for his trip, and the trips can also be tailored for people with special needs.

After a day of learning and sightseeing we can either leave the park or stay overnight in one of the many huts in the park, so we can refresh our bodies and minds and satiate our thirst for knowledge further in this absolutely epic and awesome slice of natural paradise.

This family-friendly adventure through Triglav National Park is a brilliant way to learn about its nature, for both adults and kids – book now to join the fun!

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
