    I invite you to a hiking day around unique geometric forms and the unspoiled nature of the beautiful Trnovo plateau, 90 minutes away from Liubliana, Slovenia’s capital.

    This karstic plateau in the northwestern part of the powerful Dinaric mountain range is free of running water and broken down by enclosed houses, hills, wells and abysses.

    During this trek, we will explore ice and snow caves, which are peculiar formations resulting from the karst phenomena. And you will feel the “Bora wind”, a typical wind here, that descends from the plateau towards the sea.

    The steep slopes of the Trnovo plateau represent a challenge for hikers. However it is an accesible hike. If you come during the summer, you could discover many forest paths hidden among the tree trunks. You can also go cycling here.

    In winter instead, the plateau offers ideal conditions for winter activities, such us winter hiking, diving and cross-country skiing. On weekends you can also visit or spend a night at the Iztok Mountain Hut, beneath the Golak Mountains or in the Anton Bavčer’s Hut, Čaven.

    These peaks range from 1,200 to almost 1,500 meters of altitude. From the summit of Mali Golak, the highest one with 1,495 meters, you can enjoy the most beautiful views of Slovenia, Mount Triglav and large part of the Julian Alps, with the Trieste Gulf below.

    So, if you are willing to hike around this wonderful natural land please contact me. You won’t regret it!

    I also lead a hiking trip in the Kanin mountains. Please check out this trip here.

    What People are Saying about Dean Strosar guiding team

    Dean is an excellent guide. He\'s friendly and conscientious and throughout or trip was focused on getting us to achieve our hiking goals while being aware of our abilities and experience. We chose a relatively tough hike (8hrs, 1,700m elevation gain) but Dean made sure we completed it safely and at a good pace. He also took photos throughout so we could concentrate on the hiking and shared them with us later. He was also good company on the hike. I would thoroughly recommend his services.

    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 !
