Superb European hut-to-hut trekking holiday in the Julian Alps of Slovenia including Mount Triglav and stay in Lake Bled.
This fantastic hut-to-hut trekking holiday takes you on a spectacular journey across the Julian Alps of Slovenia to the summit of Mt Triglav and is impossible to beat. Straddling Italy and Slovenia the beautiful Julian Alps offers some of the most impressive mountain scenery in Europe including Triglav National Park which is home to alpine pastures, pine forests, clear streams, crystal lakes, mountain huts and a rich variety of jaw-dropping trails. From the lakeside gem of Bled we head to the breath-taking Bohinj Valley and ascend to Crna Prst which offers a stunning panorama of Bohinj's glacier lake. Keeping high we’ll spend the next few days on a wonderful ridge above lush alpine valleys before we cross the magnificent Skrbina Pass. A gentler day in the Valley of the Seven Lakes sees us arrive on the shoulders of the highest mountain in Slovenia, the spectacular triple-headed Triglav (2864m). From here the route to the top is outstanding as we follow an exhilarating trail which offers a spot of scrambling and sections of via ferrata. The view from the summit is described as one of the most sublime among the Alps and we’ll be rewarded with an extensive panorama across the Julian Alps, Italy and Austria. Using traditional alpine huts this unforgettable traverse is topped off with a final night in Lake Bled.
