Description

Hike your way to the tallest point in Slovenia and spend eight days in the splendor of the Triglav! Touring the surrounding countryside of this iconic mountain is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a unique European gem!

Located near the border with Italy, the Triglav reaches a height of 2,864 meters, making it the highest mountain in the Julian Alps. It serves as a symbol for the entire country of Slovenia, and is the main feature of the Triglav National Park. Its name, which means ¨three head,¨ is indicative of the three peaks when viewed from the north.

The Triglav includes a glacier, and the valleys and passes across the range offer stunning beauty for trekkers and travelers. The wildlife is as varied as the altitudes, and an abundance of mammals, birds, and other species can be found in the surrounding areas.

Our program is aimed at immersing you in this incredible alpine culture. Starting in the foothills and working your way throughout the country, you will see the most exciting and breathtaking aspects of Slovenia.

The highlight of our trip will be the ascent of the Triglav and reaching the summit of the country´s tallest mountain. The remainder of the trek, however, is just as compelling. The journey opens with an epic tour through the  Via Alpina, the historic route through the Julian Alps.

The lakes that dot the countryside are stunning, and the famous Bled and Bohinj only reinforce this fact. Open meadows feed into clean and green pastures. You will have the opportunity to see old military outposts, beech forests, animal tracks, and views that you can only dream of, all in one adventure. You will even have a chance to swim in one of the gorgeous and pristine lakes that make this Slovenian hike so special.

This is a sustained program, so participants should be in good physical shape. There are some steep trails towards the top of the mountain, so you should be prepared both physically and mentally to meet these challenges.

Book this hiking trek NOW and make the Triglav the cherry on top of a perfect Slovenian adventure!
