Accomodation

Accommodation is in a combination of 3* hotels (comfortable with en-suite) and mountain huts. Mountain huts are basic, generally with excellent mountain views, hearty cuisine and warm atmosphere.

In the mountain huts you will generally sleep in dorm rooms with 5-30 people.

There are no showers in the mountain huts (with the exception of Komna mountain hut, which you will pass on day 4). Meals can be ordered in hut's dining room.

You can purchase picnic lunch supplies in towns before the tour or purchase lunch from accommodation providers the night before. It is always good to have snacks and energy bars with you, particularly when you are staying in the huts where supplies are limited.


  • Day 1: 3* Hotel in Kranjska Gora (Double/twin room with breakfast).
  • Day 2: Poštarski dom na Vršiču (1737 m.) / Dormitory room, half-board.
  • Day 3: Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih (2050 m) / Dormitory room, half-board.
  • Day 4: Koča na Doliču (2151 m) / Dormitory room, half-board.
  • Day 5: Triglav Lakes Mountain Hut (1685 m) / Dormitory room, half-board.
  • Day 6: Krn Lakes Mountain Hut (1385 m) / Dormitory room, half-board.
  • Day 7: 3* Hotel in Tolmin (Double/twin room with breakfast).

What the prices of food and drinks at the huts?

  • Most meals and drinks in mountain huts have regular prices, but water, soft drinks and beer are more expensive than in the valleys.
  • Here are some examples:
  • Coffee - 2 eur / 1,5l bottled water - 4,40 eur / Beer - 4 eur
  • Goulash - 8 eur / Veggie/meat stew - 6 eur / Sandwich - 4,50 eur
  • Please note that the huts don't accept credit card payments! Cash only.

What is good to bring along?

  • Here is a list of what is good to have for a climb in summer months:
  • Shoes – hiking boots with ankle support.
  • Socks – coolmax.
  • Jacket – wind & waterproof, softshell.
  • Long, comfortable pants.
  • Underwear with good evaporation.
  • Sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, any other sun protection.
  • Water bottle (preferably reusable) not bigger than 1 litre.
  • Food - snacks, granola bars, chocolate (optional - can be bought at mountain huts).
  • Backpack – lightweight, strong and durable material, adjustable straps (size: approximately 60-70l).
  • Hiking poles (optional).


What kind of footwear is most suitable?

  • Appropriate footwear is essential part of any hiking tour. There are a variety of models on the market designed to meet the needs of different types of hikers; the challenge is finding the one that works best for your purposes.
  • You will often hike on rocky or uneven terrain that calls for a stiff boot with a higher cuff for ankle protection, for both preventing sprained ankles and blocking stony blows to the side of your foot.
  • Choose hiking boots that have good ankle support and are well protective on a rocky terrain. Hiking boots are typically heavier and have stiffer soles and sides as well as a reinforced, protected toe area.
  • Those kinds of boots take time to break in. You should not go on multi-day trekking with brand new boots!! Before you hit the trail, make sure to break them in properly, to avoid serious blisters and other unnecessary pain.

How demanding is the tour?

  • The hike is considered a challenging activity with an optional demanding climb to Mt. Triglav.
  • Although certain parts of a trail may seem easy due to low incline, they do demand high level of endurance and can be challenging for those, who are not used to longer hikes. ]
  • The optional climb to the summit of Mt. Triglav is via ferrata (italian for “iron way”), which is an extremely steep climb on steel ladders and steel wires and is not recommended for people, who are not in good physical condition or are afraid of heights. The climb is also not recommended for children younger than 15 years and pregnant women.  

Tips and suggestions?

  • All travelers are required to notify us before booking the tour of any medical conditions they might be suffering from, as well as dietary restrictions. All medications can and should be brought along. If you suffer from any medical conditions, we strongly suggest that you consult your physician before booking a tour to receive an expert medical advice. We are more than happy to discuss and recommend the most suitable adventure for you based on your conditions, but cannot carry a responsibility for your health.
  • Do not bring too much water – 1 ,5 litre/person is enough. The path passes by mountain huts where you can get a refill and you will be able to enjoy fresh mountain spring water found a couple of times along a way, which is a special treat on its own.
  • There is no need to bring food, as all food can be purchased in mountain huts you will pass by. We do however suggest you bring some small snacks. Our favourites: a chocolate bar (chocolate is a great energy booster!), granola bars, an apple, a banana, raisins.
  • And last but not least: everyone, who climbs Slovenian peaks, hikes Alpine meadows, or takes a dip in crystal clear rivers, must understand and remember that Slovenians hold nature very close to their hearts and are as a nation devoted to protecting its beauty and health. Please, respect mountains and valleys, don’t litter, do not be wasteful, or loud, do not pick flowers along a hiking path, keep away from wild animals. And enjoy the pristine nature that is all around you!


Do I need insurance?

  • We suggest that you travel with a comprehensive travel insurance, including emergency evacuation coverage.
  • We strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance that includes cancellation protection so that you will be covered in the event that you are unable to attend our trip (due to injury, illness or other unforeseen circumstances).
  • We do not provide travel insurance for our clients. Please contact your local travel agent to purchase travel insurance.
  • As coverage and a price of the insurance changes depending on your travel destination, do make sure that you purchase a coverage for all countries you will be traveling in on your adventure.

If you suffer from any medical conditions, we strongly suggest that you consult your physician before booking a tour to receive an expert medical advice. We are more than happy to discuss and recommend the most suitable adventure for you based on your conditions, but cannot carry a responsibility for your health.
  • Do not bring too much water – 1 ,5 litre/person is enough. The path passes by mountain huts where you can get a refill and you will be able to enjoy fresh mountain spring water found a couple of times along a way, which is a special treat on its own.
  • There is no need to bring food, as all food can be purchased in mountain huts you will pass by. We do however suggest you bring some small snacks. Our favourites: a chocolate bar (chocolate is a great energy booster!), granola bars, an apple, a banana, raisins.
  • And last but not least: everyone, who climbs Slovenian peaks, hikes Alpine meadows, or takes a dip in crystal clear rivers, must understand and remember that Slovenians hold nature very close to their hearts and are as a nation devoted to protecting its beauty and health. Please, respect mountains and valleys, don’t litter, do not be wasteful, or loud, do not pick flowers along a hiking path, keep away from wild animals. And enjoy the pristine nature that is all around you!


Do I need insurance?

  • We suggest that you travel with a comprehensive travel insurance, including emergency evacuation coverage.
  • We strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance that includes cancellation protection so that you will be covered in the event that you are unable to attend our trip (due to injury, illness or other unforeseen circumstances).
  • We do not provide travel insurance for our clients. Please contact your local travel agent to purchase travel insurance.
  • As coverage and a price of the insurance changes depending on your travel destination, do make sure that you purchase a coverage for all countries you will be traveling in on your adventure.
