With all the mountains you could climb in Slovenia it would be a shame to only stick to the most popular ones. There are endless options for tours that suit any kind of mountain lover, regardless of your technical skills, experience, or fitness. From very easy hikes that focus on enjoying the Alpine surroundings and can even be adapted for families with children, to incredibly demanding tours that include via Ferrata and rock climbing, there is something for everyone. 

You aren’t even limited to the Julian Alps! Despite their incredible beauty, Slovenia also has two other mountain ranges that are equally worth visiting – the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the Karawanks. These give more options for interesting, varied, and most importantly less crowded hut to hut tours. We can even lead you off the beaten path, into areas where we will be more likely to come across a chamois than another person.

IMPORTANT! Planning a custom hut to hut tour takes time and because we want to make the perfect route for you, please inquire about custom hut to hut tours early enough, before the season starts!

Things to know

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.

Our guided tours are led by UIMLA or IMFGA internationally licensed guides who have completed many years of training to make your hut to hut hike both safe and enjoyable. They are passionate individuals who call the Slovenian mountains their second home and are ready to share this adventure with you.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It is important that your clothes are comfortable. You should have comfortable shoes with a good grip. It is recommended that you also have some warmer and windproof clothing with you as the temperature can drop or in case of cold wind. You can always leave excess clothes in the van after consulting with our guide.

The group size will vary on the tour we will choose. More difficult tours can have fewer people per guide.
