Is there any better place to do a walking holiday than in one of the most diverse parts of the world, where there is something worth seeing behind every corner? Join us on the ultimate self-guided walking holidays in Slovenia, taking place in the most beautiful part of our diverse country, the Julian Alps.

With awe-inspiring peaks and picturesque valleys full of crystal clear rivers and lakes running between them, the Julian Alps are the go-to part of Slovenia to visit for both locals and foreign visitors. The area is full of natural and cultural jewels, most of it protected under the only national park in Slovenia, the Triglav National Park.

Even though the self-guided walking tours take place in the mountainous region of Slovenia, they are not in any way demanding. It is a perfect choice for those who want to do some easy hiking enabling them to explore the landscape, discover the culture, taste the food, and experience the destination to the fullest.

The holiday is also for those of you who would like more autonomy in your daily planning. The self-guided aspect of the holidays makes your visit to Slovenia less touristy and more adventurous. And don’t worry, we provide you with all the necessary instructions, making it as easy as possible for you to navigate through a perfect holiday.

Your accommodations will be at two different locations since that makes your holiday more diverse and shortens the drive to particular destinations of the day. The base for the first few days will be the town of Bled, the pearl of the Julian Alps. The famous lake with photo-worthy views of its cute small island with a church in the middle makes it a top holiday destination in itself. You will spend the second part of the week in the alpine village of Kranjska Gora, Slovenia’s hub for mountain-related activities. Surrounded by mountains on all sides, Kranjska Gora offers a more sporty but still relaxed vibe, perfect for you outdoor-loving people.

Even though public transport options in Slovenia are plenty and sufficient for getting from town to town, they are not the best to discover the Julian Alps. For the most autonomy and flexibility, we advise you to rent a car, which makes every location more accessible and your Lakes and Valleys Self-Guided Walking Holidays that much more enjoyable.
