Tour Details

This walking holiday explores the Triglav National Park encompassing Slovenia’s highest peak, Mt Triglav (2864m), in the Julian Alps. Starting in the charming Alpine village Kranjska Gora, your route crosses the mighty Vršič Pass into the hidden Trenta Valley and then continuing along the course of the crystal clear Soča River – one of the cleanest rivers in Europe, with marbled trout swimming in its crystalline turquoise waters  towards the little town of Bovec.  Here the area is “littered” with reminders from Napoleonic and WW1 battles, one of which is the dramatic Kluže fortress. Still following the Soča river, you’ll be moving south to Kobarid.  The last stage of your walk takes you north again to the beautiful Lake Bohinj. Situated in the unspoiled nature, this is one of Slovenia’s most beautiful lakes and a perfect  place to end  your hiking week.
