From the forests of the Triglav National Park to the magical Adriatic coast

Best walks in Slovenia is a one-week walking trip through the beautiful Slovenian landscape, ideal for anyone who loves a series of shorter, easy and pleasant daily walks along well crafted trails through the green nature of western Slovenia.

You’ll walk pathways with gentle uphill sections across high mountain pastures and meadows, through dense forests in the Triglav National Park, to stunning viewpoints of the Julian Alps. Further on, you’ll pass beautiful glacial lakes, valleys and crystal clear rivers, before visiting the mysterious caves of the Slovenian Karst and finally, along the magical Adriatic coast.

Along the way you’ll explore Ljubljana, a green city with picturesque bridges, the towns of Bled and Bohinj with their blush-green lakes, along with the enchanting alpine town Bovec and its dramatic mountain backdrop. The medieval seaside town of Piran, which grew with the aid of salt, will provide a glorious, relaxing end to your trip.

Primoz Kadunc
Slotrips guide

I hold a master’s degree in organizational science which I put into practice as a hiking guide and on my active journeys exploring the world. Thanks to my legendary road trip with the Renault 4 car through India and Iran, extensive travels throughout Latin America and sail across the Atlantic back to Europe, as well as completing my education in Lisbon and Canary Islands, I’m fluent in Spanish, English and multiple Slavic languages. In love with the Slovenian mountains and Croatia’s coastline, I mostly run active tours in the region of the former Yugoslavia. I can’t imagine a better way to explore the world.

Meet the Slotrips team

“My wife found this wonderful hiking trip, 8 day Best Walks in Slovenia guided tour. It was fantastic. The lunches were fantastic local food often at a hiking hut or winery or other unique venue. We had a diverse group of 7 with a wide range of hiking capabilities from true mountaineers to casual hikers. Miha (our guide) quickly assessed each person’s capabilities and figured out a way to challenge each one of us. I highly recommend Slotrips and would go again in a heartbeat. It was a fantastic value for the money. We would recommend this tour to anyone who loves the great outdoors and hiking adventures!”

Questions & answers

How difficult is the walking?

Expect to walk about 4-5 hours per day within a distance of 8-12 km (5-8 miles) and 400 m (1300 ft) elevation gain. However, on the most challenging day you’ll gain up to 700 m (2300 ft) of elevation. Because the trip is not like “a walk in the park”, we recommend beforehand a reasonable fitness level to fully enjoy the trip.

What are the trails like?

The trails are uneven, sometimes rocky and narrow, with gravel, grass and forest soil surfaces. You can expect to walk over some short, steep, sometimes slippery sections on the uphills as well as the downhills. Most of the trails are in the shade of a forest. However, be prepared for sun exposure too.

What is the weather usually like?

In summer (from June to early September) the weather is usually hot, with temperatures around 25-30 deg C (75-90 deg F). In peak season (August) you can expect a heatwave with temperatures likely exceeding 35 deg C (95 deg F) as well as a significant temperature drop in the mountains on a cloudy, windy or rainy day.

How big are the groups?

Depending on the departure date, maximum group sizes are of 8 or 16 travelers. In the case of more than 8 travelers on the tour, there will be 2 guides guiding the trip with two 8-seater minivans for the transfers along the way. This will allow you to join either the faster or more leisurely walking group. Therefore, everyone can enjoy the pace they feel most comfortable with. Therefore, the more physically fit hikers can add some extra miles while others take more time to rest and relax. By doing so we keep the feeling and flexibility of a small group tour, so you get the best out of the trip.

What kind of accommodation do we stay in?

You’ll stay in selected nice and clean centrally located 3* hotels, in double or single rooms with en-suite bathroom.

Please note that different departure dates may include a different selection of hotels. Feel free to ask for accommodation details for your preferred departure dates.
