Hiking in Slovenia

Adventures from the Julian Alps to the Adriatic Sea

Trip Level

This trip is Level 3, Moderate. It is a hiking journey with day hikes on most days over moderate to steep terrain. You will carry just a daypack on the hikes. The hiking itinerary is planned in advance, but as with any mountain trip, we need to remain flexible with regard to weather and other conditions in selecting our daily hiking routes. Most of our driving is on narrow mountain roads. There are several days with early starts (ready to go by 8:00 am!).

Cuisine in Slovenia is varied and excellent. Logarska Dolina and Bohinj have an Austrian influence, while the Soca River and Adriatic regions are Italian in style, with seafood and pasta. Wine is excellent throughout the country. In the north, there are mostly dry white wines, and as we approach the coast, more reds are produced in the Vipava Valley and the coast. Please note that in Europe, the dinner hour is considerably later than what it is in the US. We do our best to secure early reservations for our groups, but most often the evening meal will be at 7:30 pm.

We stay in a variety of hotels. Rooms in these hotels are not always of uniform or international size. However, our leaders try their best to assign rooms in a fair way so that all participants experience an equal advantage throughout the trip as a whole. Single Rooms: Please note that single rooms in European hotels tend to be small by US standards.


The months we run these trips are the optimal ones, weather-wise. However, mountain weather is fickle. The weather can range from blue skies with the temperature in the 60s and 70s to cloudy, wet, cold days on which rain gear and wool garments are necessary. At night the temperature will drop quite a bit, depending on the altitude. Summer can be hot, and rain can occur at any time; there is a chance of snow in the mountains in May.
