As you traverse this bewitchingly diverse landscape, every turn uncovers a fresh spectacle to leave you in awe.

Over the two days, anticipate encounters with crystal clear mountain lakes, historic pastures that narrate tales of shepherds’ lives, and perhaps a glimpse of high-altitude wildlife such as chamois, ibex, or marmot. Each evening, mountain huts provide a heartening rest, complete with authentic Slovenian meals and the unique camaraderie of fellow nature enthusiasts.

This condensed version of the Triglav Lakes Valley hike provides a fulfilling taste of the Julian Alps, making it ideal for those wanting to immerse themselves in mountain hiking without extreme physical or technical challenges. All that’s required is the ability to walk for half a day – with plenty of pauses to soak in the scenery and rejuvenate, naturally.

As such, this 2-day adventure opens the Julian Alps’ captivating landscape to a wider audience, all while preserving the tranquil charm of the longer tour.

Ready to swap the hustle and bustle for the hush of the Alps? Slip into your hiking boots, tune into the call of the mountains, and let the Julian Alps unveil their magic over an unforgettable two-day adventure. The ibex are eager to meet you, and the valleys can’t wait to share their secrets.

I arranged a six-day/five-night trip with Hut to Hut Slovenia. It's the first time I've gone with a tour organizer and I can say it went really well. In the past I've arranged huts myself and it is a huge hassle figuring out how to make the bookings, if the bookings actually exist, and what good/viable routes might be. Having this all sort was, at least to me, totally worth it. The routing is via Ride with GPS, which was great. I'd recommend bringing 1:25,000 scale paper maps as a backup, just in case. The huts themselves differ wildly. Some are really rustic with, ahem, interesting toilet facilities. One was accessible by road and thus had showers, a long menu, and even espresso. All will have some sort of food, but you might only have two options for dinner (one with meat, one vegetarian). The cuisine in the Slovenian huts leans strongly to stews and goulashes with minimal fresh vegetables and/or fruit. Certainly good and hearty but pretty much everyone I talked to said the food was better in the Italian and Austrian huts. Some huts are cash only, some take cards (but the card reader might be down). A 1.5 litre bottle of water is about 6 euro, so if you have a beer with dinner and also buy lunch you need to carry about 25-30 euro per day in cash (assuming you have a booking that includes breakfast). Of the six days of hiking, four were ridiculously spectacular, with the highlight being sunrise from Mt Stol. Getting up to the high mountains, though, can be crazy steep, with switchbacks only sparsely used. Descents are similarly tough, and you have to watch every step. For the first time ever I used trekking poles and my knees thank me. Two days were a bit of a slog, but this is probably unavoidable getting up to or down from the high terrain. Would I do something like this again? Yes, absolutely! But next time it will probably be the Dolomites.

We had a lovely hike today with our guide Klemen. He personalized the tour on our needs and interests, so that we saw places we wouldn't without his experience. The hike was a little bit slippery after the rain from the last days and it went a lot upwards, but it was totally worth it! Thanks again :)
