What should I know about Slovenia?
Slovenia is a small country in Central Europe, with a short coastline to the Adriatic Sea. Over half of its territory is covered by meadows and forests, while the mountainous areas lie to the northwest. Often overlooked when traveling through Europe, Slovenia is fast-growing as a top destination among outdoor lovers. Less crowds, breathtaking natural sceneries, lower prices and a broad offer of all-year-round activities, make it a truly gem. Besides, Slovenia has a strong winemaking tradition, including the world’s oldest vine in the city of Maribor.
Why should I choose Slovenia for my adventure?
The majestic Julian Aps
Stretching beyond the Italian border, this imposing mountain range is home to Slovenia’s highest peak and national symbol: Mount Triglav. The area offers endless options for rock climbing, mountaineering, hiking and ski touring.
In 2016, Slovenia became the first green destination in the world. Bike-friendly cities ‒like the wonderful capital, Ljubljana‒, pristine landscapes, a strong cultural heritage and a cuisine based on fresh seasonal ingredients encourage a sustainable travel experience.
Bled, idyllic mountain town
Lake Bled ‒with its tiny island and picturesque church‒ is probably the most iconic sight in Slovenia. The town is also the best starting point for all kinds of outdoor adventures in the Julian Alps, the Karavanke mountains and the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.
What can I expect from the weather in Slovenia?
The northwest of Slovenia has an Alpine weather, with mild temperatures during summer (including occasional storms) and very cold temperatures in the winter season. Spring and autumn provide pleasant weather conditions. The Adriatic coast has a Mediterranean weather: hot summers and pleasant temperatures even in winter.
How can I get to Slovenia?
Regular flights from many European cities arrive to Jože Pučnik Airport in Ljubljana. Those traveling to the Slovenian coast generally fly to Trieste (Italy) and then reach the country by bus. Slovenia is very well connected by train and bus with its neighbouring countries (Italy, Hungary, Croatia and Austria).

A really excellent service provided by Mitja, who sourced the fantastic mountain guide Peter Jeromel. Both provided superb advice and we were able to create a challenging but achievable climb of Triglav in winter conditions.
Mitja, Marko and luka were on their game and adapted to a varied group. I feel they delivered excellent value for money and wouldn't hesitate to book their services again in the julian alps or dolomites. Ben Hooper- Australia.
We had an amazing time. Our guide gave us many information about the regions flora and fauna. Even though the sight at the very top wasn't so good this day, the climb up was vey exciting. Thanks a lot.
Booking the guide was a simple process. Having a guide on the mountain climb and experiencing the mountains in those conditions was the highlight of the trip. I would recommend to anyone going to Slovenia. Thanks.
Mitja was an amazing Guide,so glad my son and I chose him to do this winter climb. Mitja has so much knowledge about the climb and his expertise is valuable. We felt safe at all times and Mitja continuously provided encouragement and advice. Would recommend Mitja to anyone looking for a guide
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
