Explore the beauty of Slovenia in this amazing mountain trail in the Julian Alps!

This intense hiking traverse goes all the way from Tamar Valley to Bohinj, crossing Triglav National Park.

The starting point of this 5-day journey is Planica Valley, an alpine valley in northwestern Slovenia, 40 minutes drive from Bled.

From there, we’ll follow marked paths crossing peaks like Slemenova špica, Prisojnik, Razor and Bovški Gamsovec. Finally, we’ll reach the summit of the highest peak in Slovenia and the Julian Alps, Mount Triglav (2864 m).

Then, the trail will take us along the 7 Lakes Valley, one of the most beautiful regions of this national park.

To end up our trip we’ll reach another Slovenian highlight: Bohinj valley, with its famous Lake Bohinj, the biggest glacier lake in the country. We’ll have the chance of swimming in the lake, as we contemplate the stunning scenery.
