Is there any better way to explore one of the most diverse parts of the world than on a holiday where you decide how to experience it? Join us for the ultimate walking holidays in Slovenia, available as self-guided and guided tours, in the breathtakingly beautiful Julian Alps.

With awe-inspiring peaks and picturesque valleys, home to crystal clear rivers and lakes, the Julian Alps are a prime destination for visitors from around the globe. This region, brimming with natural and cultural treasures, is largely protected within the Triglav National Park, Slovenia’s only national park.

Our tours, whether you choose the self-guided or guided option, are designed to be accessible to all. They are the perfect choice for those looking to enjoy pleasant hikes through stunning landscapes, uncover local culture, savour the cuisine, and immerse themselves fully in this unique destination.

For those who value independence in their day-to-day itinerary, our self-guided tours offer a sense of adventure with less of a tourist feel. We equip you with all the necessary instructions to ensure you have a seamless holiday experience.

Meanwhile, our guided tours provide the added benefit of expert local knowledge, ensuring you don’t miss out on hidden gems.

Your accommodations are strategically located at two different sites, enhancing the diversity of your holiday and minimising travel time to daily destinations. Your adventure begins in Bled, the gem of the Julian Alps, known for its iconic lake and island church views.

The latter part of your stay takes you to Kranjska Gora, Slovenia’s centre for mountain pursuits. Encircled by majestic peaks, it offers a blend of sporting and leisure opportunities perfect for outdoor enthusiasts.

While public transport in Slovenia is adequate for city travel, it falls short of offering the full Julian Alps experience. For utmost flexibility, we recommend car rental, which we can arrange for you, making every nook and cranny of the Lakes and Valleys of the Julian Alps more accessible.

Alternatively, for those opting for a guided experience or preferring not to drive, private transfers are available, offering a seamless way to enjoy the beauty of the Julian Alps without the hassle of navigating.

Discover the majestic Julian Alps your way. Whether you seek the freedom of a self-guided adventure or the insightful companionship of a guided tour, we’re here to make it happen.

We went on a trip to Slovenia for hiking, ferrata, rafting, and biking. Klemen was an excellent guide and was very flexible in changing the schedule due to rain. I would highly recommend Klemen and his co-guides to everyone. He is very athletic and also just a great person.

Klemen went above and beyond to adjust our trek as the weather turned nasty. He found challenging and rewarding day hikes and a mountain bike ride after we were driven out of the mountains. A great guide and a great company.
