Summary

A week of trekking in the beautiful Julian Alps of Slovenia, taking in summits and high passes to enjoy these beautiful limestone mountains at the end of summer.

The Julian Alps, Slovenia

The Julian Alps have been described as one of the most magnificent mountain destinations of Europe. The jewel in its crown is Triglav, at 2864m it is the highest mountain in the range and is surrounded by tall pine forests, steep hillsides, cobalt lakes and slender limestone ridges. Slovenia shares its borders with Austria and Italy and it enjoys many of their alpine charcteristics, sun drenched landscapes, ceramic topped villas and open air pizza ovens and of course stunningly dramatic mountains. It is very accesible from the UK with flights from £95 and just a 30 minute transfer from Ljubljana airport.

Who is the course suitable for?

This course is suitable for any one who is a fit walker and happy with multi day trekking . You need to have a good head for heights and a sense of adventure.

The Programme:

The aim of the week is to enjoy the mountains of Slovenia whist taking in some of the best trekking routes that the weather and conditions allow. We normally include a night in a mountain hut. The huts are basic and will invove sleeping in dormitory accommodation and eating a set menu but the staff are friendly and the views stunning.

We will choose routes that do not require technical skills and are suitable for fit and competent walkers. This will include some summits that provide stunning views of the Julian Alps and some high level routes that weave their way through the high passes and ridges that the region is famous for. The exact program will depend on the weather and conditions and we have visited the area enough to be flexible and tailor the trip to suit what we are given.

We visit the Julian Alps each September, this is a beautiful time of year as it gives quieter mountains than July and August, cooler temperatures for trekking and normally beautiful stable sunny weather.

Flights: You need to fly to Ljubljana. I will let you know which flights to book when you book the trip. In 2014 the flights were £125 return with Easyjet.

Testimonial:

Rob – What’s few days of bad weather when you’re having such a terrific time in the Julian Alps?  Nothing at all; in fact it merely added to the challenges and intensity of the pleasure your Slovenian party of Sandy, Al, Rich, Steve, Ian and I so much enjoyed last week.  The rugged and majestic limestone peaks together with the woodland ‘walk-ins’ provided some of the most beautiful scenery I have trekked through in the European Alps. The highlight was our ‘big day’ on the via ferrata climb up to ‘the window’ on Prisank……one of the truly epic days of my time in the mountains. Your watchful eye and encouragement appreciated. Our base in Kranjska Gora was ideal with excellent accommodation and a selection of restaurants to suit all tastes. A great crowd of guys, led by, and guided to, perfection by you and Sandy. No better way to spend a week; thank you.  – Bob – September 2017
