Join Dean, an UIMLA certified guide, on this trekking adventure through the Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park in Slovenia.
Join this adventure through the Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park. Explore one of the most beautiful regions of Europe.
Ranging all the way from Slovenia to Italy, the Julian Alps are a stunning mountain range, that form part of the Limestone Alps. And, their tallest peak is the Mount Triglav, standing at 2,864 meters of height.
The name of the Julian Alps has a curious history, as they received it from Julius Caesar. So the beauty of these mountains is as fascinating as its history.
The Triglav National Park covers most of the Julian Alps. The park is the largest protected wilderness area in Slovenia, under a special conservation regime. Also, this wonderful park receives its name from the tallest mountain in Slovenia, Mt. Triglav (2,864m), an emblematic peak of the country.
Charming beech, spruce and larch forest cover most of the park. But it’s also brimming with many other species. As for the terrain, it is as varied as stunning, with steep rock faces, sharp peaks and deep and dazzling glacial valleys.
There are over 400 Slovenian peaks in this region, that rise at heights of over 2,000 meters. As Mt. Triglav is the highest peak, we’ll be able to see from all around the park. But, there are many other mountains that rise above the clouds, like Škrlatica (2,740m), Mangart (2,679m), Jalovec (2,645m) and Razor (2,601m).
There are several spots we can visit, from majestic peaks to charming valleys, as well as many cultural attractions. Thus, I left the itinerary of this trip open. So we can visit all the places you want, for as long as you wish.
If you want to join this adventure send me a request. I promise I will be a trip you won’t forget! Looking for a winter adventure? I also offer this 1-day snowshoeing tour in the Carnic Alps.

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 !
Dean was prompt and super knowledgeable about the area we were going to. He guided us safely to Slemenova Spica to enjoy the Julian Alps. As two girls from the city, we don't have much hiking experience, and he was patient and super helpful. We enjoyed our trip so much and it has been the highlight of our Slovenia trip. Thanks once again, Dean, for taking us on this experience!
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.
