Overview

Winter in Slovenia is amazing! Ljubljana might be foggy most of the winter, but the mountains are splendid. Frozen waterfalls and lakes, snow-covered meadows, trees and towering white mountains. There are several walks and hikes which offer jaw-dropping views and take us to the heart of Slovenian Alps without extreme effort.

What do you need to take this tour? Good high-cut winter hiking shoes, warm clothes, gloves and love for nature, outdoors and adventure

This is a tour with a flexible itinerary. We always do it differently and it all depends on your wishes, fitness level, hiking experience, weather, temperatures and snow conditions.

We usually do our winter hiking tours in the Julian Alps (in the region around Lake Bled, Bohinj or the ski resort of Kranjska Gora) and most of them take place inside the Triglav National Park. However, we are 100% adaptable and please let us know if you have any special interest to discover another part of Slovenia. Let us know as much as possible about your hiking experience, fitness level and your hiking wishes. The more information we get, the better we can prepare the tour. 

According to your wishes, we will choose the most attractive tour. Together we will discover some hidden corners of Slovenian Alps, visit a fantastic viewpoint and peek into the world of Slovenian alpine culinary delights.

Be our guest! Experience the winter delights of Slovenian Alps with us!

Domen Strle

Trip designer & guide
As a kid, I was introduced to the beauty of mountaineering through mountain summer camps with my local alpine club, where I’ve established love and respect for nature. I have since become an active member of the club, an alpinist, a recreational mountain biker, a ski mountaineering enthusiast and a certified hiking guide, which enables me to share my fondness for the mountains with others. Lately, I spend an equal amount of time exploring not only rugged mountains but also local history & culture and good food. Eventually, I’ve joined my passion, knowledge and skills into a profession which I love and enjoy.

“I had the best day ever!! My experience with Slotrips exceeded all expectations and worth much more than the money I paid for. Domen was prompt replying and provided all the info I needed to prepare for the trip. His choice of the sightseeing stops and the hike perfectly matched my wishes and level of fitness. Domen is great company and you can really tell that he is passionate about nature and what he does. We visited a magical waterfall - Pericnik, had a walk in a beautiful winter forest, climbed to the top of Visevnik with breathtaking views of Triglav (the three-headed mountain :) ). Who knows what adventures await me next with Slotrips?!”
