Description

Situated in the stunning northwest of Slovenia, Triglav National Park boasts numerous mountain trails that are perfect for a wide variety of hiking.

With well-worn paths that pass by glaciated mountain peaks, verdant coniferous forests, rushing waterfalls, deep valleys and gorges as well as pristine alpine lakes, there are plenty of incredible options awaiting us.

Our adventure begins in the Soča Valley or at another pre-determined meeting point. From here, we will start hiking along the trail in Trenta (624m) up to the hut on Prehodavci (2,071m), before descending down into the valley that contains the Triglav lakes.

The following day, we will hike on to Komna and then continue over the Bogatinsky saddle. From here, we descend toward the Krn Lakes Home, passing the remnants of various World War I-era buildings along the way.

On the final day, we hike up toward Krn Lake and enjoy some marvelous views along the way, before continuing on to to Lepena, where our trip will end and we will say our goodbyes.

We truly had an unforgettable snowshoeing tour with Dean! We couldn’t have asked for a better guide! Even though my snowshoeing skills were not the best, he was very patient. He definitely has the skills and was incredibly knowledgeable. He made sure we stayed safe and kept a close eye on everyone. He was kind enough to take photos of us! You can tell he loves what he does. You will not be disappointed with Dean! As for the Explore-Share service website….it made the booking process and communication extremely easy. I emailed with questions first and within 24 hours I had a response and decided to book. All in all the whole experience was great!

We had a wonderful day today with Dean as our guide at the "Tre Cime". He was very patient with us (we're not particularly fast walking up a mountain), but we never felt pressured. He offered us some additional detour to give us an additional special view, but made clear that we would have to see first if the conditions were good enough for us to pass, as otherwise it would be too dangereous. We were lucky and were able to walk on, but on the "dangerous" icy passage over a cliff he walked under my wife making sure she was safe - overall, we felt that we were in very good hands with you, Dean, thank you very much!!

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.
