About Walking Holidays Slovenia

Join us for multi-day walking holidays on the best hiking and trekking trails between the high peaks of the Julian Alps and other Slovenian mountains. We have prepared multiple hiking tours to make your walking holidays in Slovenia pleasant and fun!

From the lakes to the Alpine valleys, high pastures and panoramic mountain peaks, follow the paths through forests and meadows to uncover the true face of Slovenia. The melody of streams and waterfalls, rustling foliage and the crack of twigs under your shoes will allow you to recharge while enjoying your leisurely walk on the sunny side of the Alps.

These guided or self-guided walking holidays will get you to see and visit numerous places most visitors to Slovenia do not experience — offering some of the best views of the most popular attractions or discovering some hidden gems in the Slovenian countryside.

You will immerse yourself in the landscape on foot — taking in the rustic lifestyle of villages and spoiling your taste buds in traditional huts and tourist farms when tasting delicious and proper Slovenian food.

The tours are designed to allow at least a few hours of walking every day on easy trails with some gradual ascents, perfect for nature lovers looking for an experience that combines walking with relaxation and tranquility.

Get ready for an unforgettable experience on our Slovenia hiking tours and enjoy your Slovenia walking holidays with us!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who will be our guide?

Our guided walking tours are led by UIMLA or IMFGA internationally licensed guides who have completed many years of training to make your walking holidays both safe and enjoyable. They are enthusiastic individuals who are ready to share their passion for Slovenia and its rich culture and nature with you, and make your walking holiday one to remember.

Why is the accommodation not specified?

We are always looking for the perfect fit for you. We use a few different accommodation providers that fit our standards but they are subjected to availability, especially in the high season. We can also adjust the holiday, keeping in mind your preferences and budget and can always find a more suitable solution for your taste.

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.

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. 

Will I have some time to myself?

If you want to, sure! We are well aware that some people love to stay in groups while others prefer some more alone time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! As long as you respect the group timings and locations designated by your guide, please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!

What is the best season for walking in Slovenia?

Depending on the tour, some of our tours go through high mountains and there is still snow in spring (sometimes as late as early June) and autumn (sometimes as early as October). Other tours don't go as high and are suitable for spring and autumn as well as summer. Read more about hiking seasons in Slovenia.

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?

Some of our tours are hut-to-hut tours, with overnights in authentic mountain huts. 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.

    The tour is just packed with amazing highlights, one wouldn’t expect from a simple hike this one looks at a first glance. So much history on the way, from the Franja hospital to the paths where once was an international border and finally the Triglav lakes valley where one can stay for a week and just enjoy the nature around. The organization of everything was perfect, our luggage was transported to the end destination without problems. The accommodation in the hut is pretty basic but comfortable enough so no complaints.

    It was my third time in Slovenia and I just can’t get enough of this amazing pearl of a country. I have already seen the Soča valley and Bled before but this trip really gave me a new perspective on it - I met some amazing people on the trip as well as the Slovenia Holidays team, who made an amazing job keeping us entertained and taken care of all the organization. Thank you.
