Julian Alps, Slovenia – Our Hiking Experience
|The network of trails is well developed and adequately secured and marked. Markings are rarely missing on some longer sections. Signposts to the next huts serve as orientation.|
|The Slovenian Alps can be easily reached by public transport. Kranjska Gora or Mojstrana can serve as destinations here.|
|The Julian Alps are high mountains. Our tour requires a certain level of fitness and a head for heights. There are some via ferrata sections to be completed.|
|In some of the huts you can pay by credit card. In others, you need cash. The prices for the cabins are very similar and can be found on the website.|
|Take enough water with you. Due to the karst rock, there are no streams or rivers with potable water. There is enough and good food in the huts.|
|Camping in the Triglav National Park is strictly forbidden. In addition, the inhospitable terrain and the good huts make camping superfluous.|
The huts can get very crowded at times. Reservation strongly recommended in the short high season! There may be queues at the climbing passages. Especially on Triglav it gets very crowded as soon as the weather is good.
Membership in an alpine club is highly recommended. For example the Slovenian Alpine Club
|The entire length of the hiking trail runs through a high alpine landscape and offers wonderful views. you can watch ibex, chamois and eagles|
|We recommend via ferrata equipment on some passages! Especially if high-standing hikers release rocks. Don´t forget the first aid kit and follow the rules of hiking in high mountain ranges!|

The Julian Alps are located in the north-west of Slovenia. Triglav, impressive at 2,864 m, is located in the Triglav National Park of the same name. This demanding high mountain landscape was our goal for summer 2020. For this reason, we have divided the 53 km long hiking route into 7 stages. Mainly the tour was mostly in and on the border of the Triglav massif. It’s a round trip. With the result that the start and end point of our hike was Aljazev Dom. The hut is only approx. 15 km away from Mojstrana.
A Hiking Dream
The Julian Alps and hiking in the highest mountain range in Slovenia are a dream. Numerous branched hiking trails lead through glacial valleys, between steep walls or over forest-covered plateaus to the high peaks. The mountain huts offer a relaxed atmosphere with many local specialties.
