Pickup location and time

To be set upon reservation according to the time of the year and conditions.

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!

The sooner the better - guaranteed availability and best prices if you don't wait for too long.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear on the tour?

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.

How many people will be in a group?

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

Who will be our guide?

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.


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.

    This was probably one of the best hiking tours we have ever done and definitely, a highlight of our Slovenia stay. We have hiked for three days in the Kamnik Alps with Bine, who made everything easy for us - we are a family with an 11-year-old. He and Bine became best friends on the hike and he won't shut about mountains now. The pace was perfect and stages just long enough to be challenging and not too much and after the tour, we felt tired and happy. We even did an optional peak on the first day when our guide got to know us a bit and made sure we can do it. Mountain huts were amazing, so simple and so authentic. I would thoroughly recommend hut to hut tours because they are professional and really made the effort with planning and organising our hike.

    Me and my husband have been to Slovenia already in 2028 and we kind of knew what we wanted this time so we decided to do a more demanding 3-day hike across the Julian Alps. Klemen from hut to hut team designed a perfect tour for us and it was really just like we hoped it to be - challenging, scenic and away from the most frequently hiked paths. The mountain huts were just as nice as the most popular ones if not even better. Julian Alps are a truly unique place we still plan to come back to. To every hiker that wants to do something more than the regular hike, I can not recommend this custom option enough. 5 stars!

    I want to recommend hut to hut slovenia as they have tried really hard to make our little trip as perfect as possible. Everything from communication to organisation was fantastic and our guide Luka was really great. He told us so much about the history and the region that made our stages seem much shorter and easier. We did a longer variant of the classic seven lakes and enjoyed full 4 days in the beautiful Julian Alps. Thanks to everyone involved this will be a holiday to remember.
