This hut to hut walking holiday is perfect for those who would like to see the best of the Julian Alps and the Soča Valley. Hike the Triglav National Park and discover the most picturesque part of the Julian Alps, the Seven Lakes Valley.

The tour is designed in a way that makes every day a diverse experience. You will spend two days in the Julian Alps, then a day walking through the Soča Valley, and another two days back in the high mountains. The highlight of the first part is hiking the pristine Seven Lakes Valley, nestled in the heart of the Triglav National Park. Also called the Triglav Lakes Valley, it was the first area protected by the only national park in Slovenia and one of the oldest in Europe.

On the third day, you will descend to the Soča Valley with our most iconic Soča River. It will be a day spent walking past beautiful gorges full of emerald green pools and wooden bridges. For a more relaxing third day, you can also use the help of a shuttle and make it a rest day spent chilling beside the jewels of the emerald Soča River. The last two days take you back to the Julian Alps. The two-day hike across the high-altitude karst plateau of Komna will take you back where you began, to Lake Bohinj. You can therefore extend your holiday by a vacation at our largest lake, either before or after the tour.

Each stage has around 5 to 6 hours of walking, with plenty of time left for taking photos and taking in the beautiful landscapes. Those who have a little extra stamina can also take some detours to peaks close to the planned route with an outstanding panoramic view. This is a hut to hut tour, which means that at the end of each day, you will arrive at an authentic mountain hut, where you will spend the night. Slovenia’s mountains are full of these cosy lodges, making this kind of tour an optimal way of exploring our mountains.

The tour can be guided or self-guided, and in both methods, some basic level of hiking knowledge is needed. The walking is a little more demanding than in other walking tours since most of it is on non-flat terrain of high mountains. The paths are often rocky or full of loose stones, so it’s good to have a basic sense of where to put your foot down to not slip. Also, don’t forget about proper footwear and clothing. If you need any help when packing, our guides are here to help.

NOTE: Due to high demand and limited availability of accommodations in Soča Valley, this tour requires a very early booking, 6-9 months in advance. For later bookings, the price can vary.
