A Comprehensive Guide of Hut To Hut Hiking in Slovenia

Enter your mail below and get your free E-Book!

This tour gives you the chance to see the best of the breathtaking Julian Alps, and also climb Slovenia’s highest mountain, the epic Mount Triglav. Find out for yourself why this mountain is deemed the symbol of Slovenia and the most popular hike in the country. It is even said that you only become a ‘true Slovenian’ once you’ve conquered its peak.

By extending the standard two-day Triglav climb for just a day, you will get to explore the pristine high mountain lakes of the Triglav Lakes Valley, also known as the Seven Lakes Valley, and its mesmerising surrounding mountains.

We will also hike across mountain pastures and pass traditional shepherd’s huts that are still used by shepherd’s in some cases. The mountains are therefore populated with herds of sheep and cows, as well as its autochthonous inhabitants – the chamois, ibex, and marmot.

On the first day, we will reach the Planika Lodge below the Triglav summit, ascend Triglav on the second day, and afterwards marvel at the Triglav lakes as we hike to our lodging for the night. On the last day we will stretch our legs with an easier hike and finish our tour in Bohinj.

Triglav is a climb that can be done by almost anyone who is reasonably fit, has basic hiking experiences, and doesn’t have vertigo or a fear of heights. Still, at 2864 metres of altitude, Triglav is not to be underestimated. While most of the hike doesn’t require technical skills, the summit push is very exposed and steep, where most will feel more comfortable with protection. It’s all well worth the view at the top though, and a picture next to the famous Aljaž Tower will definitely become one of your favourites.

Amazing views and exciting hikes aren’t the only things that make this tour a truly genuine hiking experience. We will actually spend a full three days in the mountains, sleeping and eating in mountain huts, enjoying the alpine vibe and meeting other mountain lovers. It doesn’t get more authentic than that!

NOTE: if part of the group would rather skip the Triglav climb, and stick to less technical terrain, we can adapt the tour so that only those who want to ascend the peak do so, and then regroup with the rest later.

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 :)
