Hiking day on the Trnovo Plateau, Slovenia


Enjoy an unforgettable hiking day in the Trnovo Plateau with UIMLA mountain leader Dean. These lands in Slovenia offer unique landscapes, pits and ice caves.



1 Day

All year




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.
