High Trails of the Julian Alps

  • Relaxing on the shores of serene Lake Bled beneath Bled Castle
  • Soaking up the views from the mountain ridges and passes
  • Indulging in a glass of heart warming, home made, honey schnapps
  • Awakening to the mountain glow of an alpine sunrise in the realm of soaring eagles
  • Crystal clear Lake Bohinj in the heart of Triglav National Park
Explore the heart of Slovenia’s Julian Alps as you follow the high trails staying in traditional mountain huts. From the serene shores of glacial Lake Bled the route takes you from hut to hut high into the Triglav National Park and on down to the pristine waters of Lake Bohinj. Pass medieval castles, churches and traditional mountain villages as you walk across rich mountain pasture and traverse mountain ridges and passes beneath the sky scraping peaks. Your trip begins in the picturesque lake side town of Bled overlooked by the imposing medieval Bled Castle. A warm-up hike explores the surrounding verdant mountain pastures and dense fir forest up onto the Pokljuka high plateau, getting you ready for the following days exploring the Triglav National Park. Beneath the rugged summit of Mount Triglav, the highest Slovene peak at 2864m, you will get your first experience of staying in a traditional alpine hut. Continue toward Dolina Triglavskih Jezer, the Valley of the Triglav Lakes and Savica Waterfall, where the alpine karst spring water cascades 78m to feed mighty Lake Bohinj below. A relaxing walk along the northern shores of Lake Bohinj brings you to the village of Ribecev Laz, where you can enjoy a taste of home-made honey brandy and borovnica blueberry schnapps. Take a dip in the crystal clear lake waters or perhaps a cable car ride up to the Vogel high plateau. Your tour ends back at the pretty Lake Bled, which you can explore further. Slovenia’s Julian Alps, located on the border with Austria, have always been a cross roads and this is reflected in the rich culture, architecture, music, history and food of this beguiling region.
