walking in SloveniaThis amazing 8-day hiking tour shows you the best of the Slovenian Alps and lets you experience the whole diversity Slovenia has to offer. It is the ultimate tour for all nature lovers who would like a mix of hiking and fun on crystal clear rivers and lakes, get to know the vibrant city of Ljubljana and savour authentic Slovenian food & wine.

The group will meet in Ljubljana, Slovenia's capital city, and then we head off to the mountains to do an amazing 3-day hut-to-hut hike. Don't worry: the huts are fully equipped and you don't need to bring any special gear or food. Everything is there. The hike is technically easy, however you have to be fit enough to hike ca. 15 km (10 miles) and overcome 800 meters (2500 feet) of altitude difference on the hardest day of our hike. After the hike we will explore & have a swim in the stunning lakes of Bohinj & Bled, before continuing to the valley of the emerald Soča river. Here we will do some more hiking & discover the hidden secrets of the valley. If you would like to pump your adrenaline, you'll have a chance to do white water rafting, kayaking or canyoning! Continuing towards south we will visit the historic town of Kobarid and finish our tour between the rolling wine hills of Goriška Brda with some first class local food & wine.

HIGHLIGHTS:
•    Visit the lively capital city of Ljubljana
•    Explore the amazing high alpine landscape of Triglav National Park
•    Hike to some of the highest Slovenian peaks
•    Enjoy the fantastic lakes Bohinj & Bled

The huts offer food and drinks and provide beds with blankets. Some huts have cotton bed sheets and some huts use “single use” bed sheets.
