Hiking Slovenia

Hiking has a permanent place in the hearts of Slovenian people. On the area of Slovenia, which covers 20,000 square kilometres, there are almost 10,000 kilometres of marked trails. The Alpine region with high mountain ranges as well as lower mountains and hills cover an astonishing 70 per cent of Slovenian territory.  One of the reasons for the popularity of hiking in Slovenia lies in the fact that it takes only a few minutes to escape from the hustle and bustle onto the nearest hiking trail. The beauty of hiking in Slovenia is not only in conquering the trail once, but happily returning to discover the surprises of the familiar over and over again and to find motivation for further exploration. So put on your hiking shoes and let’s go on our way together.

In good hiking company

Although we often head into the mountains and nature in search of peace and relaxation, it is much easier to walk the path in good company. Take part in hiking festivals and other events held in spring and autumn, where you will not only hike, but also enjoy the rich local attractions, learn about the natural and cultural heritage, and good company. Which will you choose?

Take some time and get to know Slovenia on foot

Explore the diversity of the Slovenian landscape on long-distance trails that connect different parts of Slovenia. The paths will lead you from the mountain regions to the coast, through hills and lowlands past the natural and cultural wonders of Slovenia. Most of the long-distance trails are parts of international routes that connect multiple European countries. The longest trail that leads only through Slovenian territory is the Slovenian Mountain Hiking Trail. Get to know other interesting long-distance trails.

Slovenia is full of hiking trails. Anyone can find a trail tailored to their heart's desire. And some of those trails offer the wonderful experience of untouched nature.

Stopping at mountain huts

When you need to take a break and gather your strength to continue on the trail that lies ahead, make a stop at one of the mountain huts or rest stops. At most huts and stops you will be greeted with a pleasantly relaxed atmosphere among visitors, the hospitality of the caretakers and a delicious selection of local cuisine. The most popular foods are soups and stews, like goulash, jota (sauerkraut and beans), ričet (meat and vegetable stew) and similar dishes one eats with a spoon. Some places offer žganci (buckwheat mush) and home-made soured milk, that simply tastes better in the mountains. You can also satisfy your sweet tooth with štruklji (rolled dumplings), different kinds of strudel, pancakes and flancati (fried dough triangles). It is also possible to spend the night at some of the huts. Take a look at some of the most interesting and popular huts.
