Frequently Asked questions

What does fitness and technical difficulty mean?

We have rated our tours on a scale from 1 to 5, 1 being the easiest and 5 being the most difficult. 

Fitness level difficulty tells you about how  fit you need to be for a tour and how much walking there is. Most of our tours are suitable for most people that are regularly active and can walk for around 5-6 hours per day with breaks.

Technical difficulty tells us about the paths we use Level 1 means that zero hiking experience is required, while 5 is only for experienced hikers used to the exposure and basic climbing techniques.


Who will be our guide?

On our guided tours, you will have professional local guides. Our guides will make sure that you will have expert guidance combined with great fun and a memorable experience.


Can I get a private room?

Different huts have different options and sometimes, private rooms for 2 or 4 persons are available. It is not the rule and they require a very early booking. We will try to get you the best possible accommodation from what is available at the time of your booking. 


How much in advance should I book?

We recommend booking as early as possible. Slovenian mountain huts are very popular and get booked up several weeks in advance, especially on weekends. If your booking is late, we will try our best to find a suitable alternative. Sometimes, last-minute spots open up. However, we cannot guarantee a free spot.


Do I need a sleeping bag?

No, all of the huts provide blankets, bedding and pillows, but you can bring your own silk or cotton sleeping liner.


I have food restrictions

All of the huts offer vegetarian options and usually at least one vegan option. Still, kitchens high up are basic, so don’t expect too many choices. Huts generally serve authentic meals like stews, soups, and sausages. If you have strict dietary restrictions, consider bringing your own food as they can’t make a special meal per request. 


How about water?

Most high-altitude huts in Slovenia don’t have a drinking water source, but you can buy bottled water for around 4,5€ per 1,5l. You can also bring a water purifier and filter rainwater or water from the lakes. There are also some freshwater sources on the way so you never have to carry too much.


How do I pay for the huts?

In our guided tours, we take care of the reservations for you, and you pay for the huts together with food on the spot.  In most huts, you can pay with a credit card, but it is advisable to bring some cash just in case if the internet is down – After all, you're in the mountains. If you are a member of the UIAA Alpine Association, bring your card and you will get a discount.

For our self-guided tours, the accommodation with breakfast is included in the price.


How good is the cell reception in the mountains? Is there wifi available?

Cell reception is on and off in most parts of the Julian Alps. The reception is generally better on the peaks and exposed parts and worse in secluded valleys. Some huts offer paid wifi option, but not all.


Are the tours only possible in summer?

Most of the mountain huts only operate from June to September. Some huts are open sooner and longer, but those times change from season to season according to weather and snow conditions. Read about best seasons for hiking in Slovenia.

If conditions are favourable we can make a custom tour even before June or after September.


What if the weather forecast is bad?

Most of the tours can be done even in light rain, as long as you dress accordingly. It is not unusual in the summer that there are afternoon thunderstorms, so early starts are advisable. If the weather looks really bad, we will try to reschedule or propose an alternative tour.


What to bring for an overnight stay in the mountain hut?

Try to pack light, only take what you really need. You need your passport or ID for check-in, and some cash is advisable if the internet is down. Bring your sleeping liner and earplugs for the night, and toothbrush and body wipes for hygiene. You don’t need slippers, they are in the hut already.

    We had an outstanding experience with Triglav Tours. Klemen, our guide, was extremely helpful both in our preparations for the trip and during the unforgettable trek to the summit of Mount Triglav. He was very responsive in answering our questions on recommended lodging, arranged our transportation to the trailhead, and was instrumental in us being able to reach the summit as a guide. We plan on using Triglav Tours again the next time we are in Slovenia!

    We were a big group and it was so much fun hiking in the Alps from hut to hut. The places we have stayed at were superb and very authentic, the food was amazing and the staff very friendly. Our guide was fun and very knowledgeable, she told us so much about the culture and places we have hiked in. You get to see many pastures on the way, each with its own story. The Julian Alps felt so unreal, like straight from a fairytale. The tour was nicely organized and we felt very comfortable at all times. The tour is not too hard but can be made harder if you feel like it, there are so many peaks all around.

    The Triglav hut to hut is arguably the best tour you can do in the Julian alps in three days. Starting from the picture perfect Bohinj, reaching the mighty Triglav summit and descending via the breathtaking Triglav lakes valley - a heart full of joy.
