Full day hike in the Kanin mountains, Julian Alps

Full day hike in the Kanin mountains, Julian Alps | Slovenia

Venture into the Kanin mountains with Dean, an UIMLA mountain leader and experienced guide. Let him show you the best spots in this stunning place in the Julian Alps in Slovenia.


1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




The Kanin mountain range lies within the Julian Alps, right at the border between Italy and Slovenia. Its highest peak Mount Kanin, stands at 2,587 meters.

There are many stunning places to visit in the Kanin mountains. But one of the most impressive is Pogore, that separates the upper Soča valley in Slovenia with the Resia valley in Italy.

The sceneries we’ll get here, look like they came out of the stroke of a stunning painting, or the lines of an inspiring poem. One thing is certain, the inspiration you’ll get from walking around these dazzling lands, will certainly, leave you wanting to explore more.

Moreover, the Kanin mountains offer trails for everyone. Here we’ll find easy hikes where we’ll simply enjoy our surroundings. And we’ll also encounter more technically challenging trails that are highly demanding. But, no matter what you are looking for, the options are just endless!

Additionally the access to this wonderful place is an adventure on its own. As during the summer and winter seasons you can arrive by using a ski lift that leads to the Kanin ski slope. Thus, we’ll get mesmerizing views all throughout our journey.

Due to their unique location, and the great quantities of snow they receive each year, we can take winter tours even in May. The pristine layer of snow that covers these valleys, makes them something exceptional. However, summer has its own charm. With green shades of color, and fresh scents inundating these terrains, it is a real treat walking through them during the summer.

Would you like to visit this magical land? Send me a request and let’s plan this great trip together.

If you are looking for a full on winter adventure, I also guide this 1-day snowshoeing tour in Mount Krn, Slovenia.

What people are saying about -Dean


Dean was very attentive to all. Easy to talk to and informative



Dean was simply wonderful ! Sure footed and quick to notice when we needed a break. Conversation was easy and he was very pleasant and professional. We had a fantastic time and would absolutely hike with Dean again. What an enjoyable experience!!!



We were looking for a hike suitable for 4 adults with reasonable experience in hiking.Dean not only crafted a 5 day activity for us but was also able to adjust for routes to fit our needs during the hike itself. Dean proved to be a great guide with both knowledge and an amazing attitude and was simply so much fun to be with, Dean also went 'the extra mile' for us taking some of us to special activities which we did not plan for. If you are looking for hiking in Slovenia and getting an experience of a life time - I would highly recommend Dean. 5 starts all the way (And if there 6 he would get them as well :) ) Dean, thank you so much !



Dean is a super experienced guide, he is very qualified to do all sorts of mountineering too if you are interested to try. I had a good time learning how to do snow shoeing and he is very patient in teaching me and assessing my abilities to suggest different routes which is suitable for my build and stamina. It was great and safe to have him as a guide because he knows the terrain well and that is good to know.



Dean was an excellent tour guide! He was patient and a great teacher, whilst also being very knowledgeable about safety. Highly recommend!
