To the highest peaks
Head to the highest mountain of Slovenia, Mt. Triglav, located in the middle of the Julian Alps, or to the popular peaks in the Karavanke Alps and the Kamnik and Savinja Alps. Adjust the hike to your experience and the weather conditions. The bravest hikers can also attach a rope and climb one-thousand metre mountain faces.
The Kamnik and Savinja Alps
The Kamnik and Savinja Alps are very popular among mountaineers. The highest peaks are higher than 2500 metres, and well-marked mountain trails will lead you to them. The Velika Planina mountain pasture is considered to be one of the most beautiful Slovenian mountain pastures. In the middle of the mountainous landscape, there are two of the most beautiful valleys in Slovenia – the Logar Valley, with the Rinka Waterfall, and the Kamniška Bistrica Valley. A hike to the glacier under Mt. Skuta is a special experience, and you can also visit a popular panoramic viewpoint on the summit of Mt. Storžič.
Take a break at a mountain hut
There are more than ten thousand km of marked mountain trails threaded throughout the dynamic landscape of Slovenia, and more than 150 mountain huts can be found along them. On weekends in particular, one can detect the aromas of typical Slovenian stews drifting from their kitchens. Many places offer locally typical delicacies. You might be offered žganci (mush) with sour milk if you visit mountain pastures where shepherds live.
