The Slovenian Alps offer numerous opportunities of trekking. Take a look at four varying one-week programmes and select the right programme for you according to your interests and physical fitness. Or find the right tour among short break holidays and adjust to your available time.

The best season for trekking is from beginning of June (or when snow melts) till the end of September (or before the snow falls).

All programmes begin and end on Sundays (with exception of short breaks), including transfers to and from the airport. Following an introductory get-together and get-acquainted meeting, we will divide into groups to begin your selected tour.

Day 1: After arrival at Ljubljana-Brnik Airport, you are taken to the beautiful and famous resort of Bled, including a trip to Slovenia’s only island, which lies in the middle of the lake. Your visit to Bled may be enriched by sampling the renowned Bled dessert known as ‘kremšnita’. This is followed by transfer past Lake Bohinj to the Savica hut, where we will have dinner and stay the night.

Day 2: After breakfast, we set out to the mighty Savica waterfall, and go from there along the picturesque trail to Komna. Once you have settled in at the hut on Komna, there is a day of information and getting to know one another. Your professionally trained guides will outline your individual tour in detail. An expert is on hand at the information point to afford you an insight into the Julian Alps, their rich flora and fauna, their role during WWI, and you may also have a look at some maps and photographs of the Alps. Those more actively inclined may take part in entertainment activities. The evening features a social gathering to help you get to know one another, enriched by typical Slovenian music led by an accordion player. You may dance to the rhythm of the music, learn the Slovenian polka or relax in the highland social atmosphere that may only be experienced in the mountains.

Day 3: Beginning of each of the tours.

Weather changes: weather in the Alps is very variable. From sun to storm can take less than 20 minutes. Be prepared. Thunderstorms are more likely in the afternoons when the air is hot and moist.
Vertigo: exposure is considerable at some points on some climbing routs and sometimes you will have one thousand metres of fresh air under your boots.
Snake bite: there are snakes on the mountain (vipers, adders and ring snakes) – none are deadly. Look where you are putting your feet.
Altitude sickness: is a very rare occurrence but to prevent it drink plenty of water. Aspirin helps as does walking more slowly.
Climbing helmet: these mountains are very busy and there is a danger that you could sustain head injuries from falling stones. At certain times of the year people without helmets will not be allowed on the summit approaches. This item will be hired for your trip in mountain hut.
