Day 1: Bled and Vogel Plateau

After arrival to Bled and exploring the town a little bit, we drive to Bohinj to take a cable car to the Vogel plateau. The high-mountain plateau offers a panoramic view of the central Julian Alps and Lake Bohinj below. In winter, there is a popular ski resort there, but in summer, it is full of nice hiking trails we will explore a little for a warm-up introduction to your walking holidays.

Day 2: Sunrise Ojstrica and Bohinj

The early morning will start with an optional sunrise hike to the Ojstrica viewing point above Lake Bled. For those eager to sacrifice some hours of their sleep, this will be an unforgettable experience with an iconic photo of the lake to remember it by. After that, we will drive to Bohinj again on one of the most beautiful easy hikes in the area, the hike through the Voje Valley. It first leads you by pools and cascades of the Mostnica Gorge, where you should keep an eye out for the “elephant rock”. Continue your way past pastures with traditional dwellings to get to the Mostnica Waterfall, located at the foot of the high mountains. You’ll stop in the hut there for an authentic lunch of local mountaineer food. After the return back, you’ll get a chill afternoon on the beach of Lake Bohinj.

Day 3: Vintgar Gorge and Triglav Valleys

The third day begins with a visit to the most popular attraction around Bled, the Vintgar Gorge. Carved by the Radovna river amidst the glorious vertical walls of surrounding hills, it is an unmissable sight for its magical waterfalls, pools and rapids. It’s hard to beat that beauty, but try we will.

From the intimate beauty of the Gorge, we’ll drive further to reach the awe-inspiring landscape of the Triglav Valleys. We’ll stop for a few photos in the valley of Krma and continue our way to the epic Peričnik Waterfall in the Vrata Valley. After taking a photo behind the waterfall, we’ll hike our way along the Triglavska Bistrica river to the top of the valley. There, a kilometre high Triglav north face will give you a sense of how small we are compared to nature. After an authentic lunch in the Aljaž Hut, we return back to Bled.

Day 4: Lake Bled and Departure

All good things come to an end. Relax and enjoy a bit of free time at Lake Bled before heading back to Ljubljana.

The town of Bled is one of the most beautiful Slovenian towns, located right on the doorstep of the Julian Alps. This makes it a perfect location from where to conduct your walking holidays, voyaging closer to the heart of the Triglav National Park.

Although Bled is not inside the Park, the welcome sign for entering it is just a 10-minute drive away. That means you’re just one step away from discovering all the beauty it has to offer — From rocky grey peaks to blue pool gorges, from panoramic plateaus to crystal clear lakes. All of that is not far from Bled, waiting for you to explore it.

All this beauty is not just a short drive away but is also very accessible on foot. The guided walking holidays that we have prepared are suitable for anyone. No more than 3 hours of walking per day, with our professional guide there to make the stay as stress-free as possible.

While leading you on the sightseeing walking tours in the Julian Alps, the local guide also has a lot of knowledge about the area and its history, happy to share it with you. And don’t forget to ask for some great recommendations for trying some delicious local cuisine.

Frequently Asked Questions

How fit do I need to be?

Walking planned on our Walking holidays in Slovenian Alps is easy to moderate - the terrain is not so difficult, there are no major ascents and the pace is meant to be gradual. You have to be able to walk roughly about 4 hours. Your guide is there to take care of you and in case they see you are having difficulties, you can rest assured they will help you out.

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.

    Bled surely is one of the most beautiful places in Europe. It offers just an incredible amount of activities in nature and endless possibilities for hiking. We visited the Vogel resort that offers some of the best views of Bohinj area and Julian alps and then we visited some valley that was a bit more remote and incredibly beautiful. On the last day of hiking we did a must of Vintgar and at the end drove to some more alpine valleys and hiked there. The hikes were easy enough for everybody to enjoy and we truly had a great time.

    We used to be quite active hikers but because my husband had knee surgery last summer we decided to go for an easy option and Walking Holidays Bled looked like a perfect one for us. The hikes were mostly flat but provided views nevertheless and the pace was perfect for Gary and his knee. Thanks to the team who made this possible and did everything perfectly so our group enjoyed our stay.

    Ivana was a great host who made sure we had everything we needed, gave us an amazing presentation of the itinerary on the first day so we were sure what to expect and has taken great care of us all four days. Next year we are doing a full week of custom holidays with her and we are already looking forward to it.
