Day 1

Arrival in Kranjska Gora

The popular ski resort of Kranjska Gora, most famous for hosting the annual Alpine Ski World Cup Slalom every January, is the starting point for this tour. You will spend your first night here with the beautiful western Julian Alps as your background.

Day 2

Kranjska Gora – Jasna Valley – Kranjska Gora 17 km round walk +/- 460 m

Your warm-up walk will take you out past the first of many beautiful lakes you'll visit on this trip: Lake Jasna. With the jagged peaks of the Julian Alps behind it, Lake Jasna is the perfect spot for relaxing. But save it for the walk back because there's more ahead. Continuing on through the Jasna Valley, you'll be greeted by the glorious mountain arena of the Prisank and Razor Mountains and return via the “Russian Chapel” dedicated to Russian POWs who died during WW1 building the military road over Vršič Pass.

Day 3

Podkoren – Triple Border Point 18 km round trip + 520 m – 730 m

This walk takes you along forest and mountain meadows to the summit of Mt. Peč (1,508 meters) where the borders of Slovenia, Italy and Austria meet. At the top, you can soak up the dramatic views across the Julian Alps and Carnian Alps. The Hohe Tauern alpine range, highest in Austria, will greet you in all its majesty. The trail then descends through the valley to the source of the beautiful Sava River, the longest in Slovenia, back to Kranjska Gora.

Day 4

Radovna Valley – Vintgar Gorge - Lake Bled 14 km + 210 m – 320 m

A member of our team will drive you through the lush green Radovna Valley, amid soaring mountain peaks, to where the Radovna River has carved the 150 meter deep Vintgar Gorge. You can then walk the trail that leads along a wooden walkway through the gorge and onwards to the world-famous Bled Lake, via the lovely Katarina Church viewpoint. Your hotel overlooks the lake.

Day 5

Bled – Bohinjska Bela – Lake Bled – Bled 15 km round trip +/- 520 m

Today you will take a leisurely stroll into Bled, a popular town on the shore of a beautiful glacial lake, with its medieval castle standing guard over the distinctive island church from the edge of the lakeside cliff. For the best photos and views of the lake, church and castle and Karavanke mountain range, hike up to Mala Osojnica viewpoint from the western side of the lake. End the day with the local speciality - the cream cake "Kremšnita" - in one of the great little lakeside tea shops.

Day 6

Pokljuka – Uskovnica Saddle – Lake Bohinj 14 km +30 m – 830 m

You will be driven by car up to the Pokljuka Plateau where you will begin your hike across mountain pastures and rustic farmhouses to a viewing point into the beautiful Bohinj Valley. On the way down you can stop at the little historic village of Studor and take a journey into the past. Your final destination is Lake Bohinj, a true gem in the heart of the Triglav National Park, and the small, fisherman's settlement at the lakeside.

Day 7

Lake Bohinj 21 km +/- 330 m

Spend the day strolling around this wonderful, peaceful alpine lake setting, in the shadows of the immense mountain peaks of the Julian Alps. You can swim in its fresh water. Try the delicious Bohinj trout. At the western end of the lake is a short trail up to Savica Waterfall, the source of the lake and the Sava Bohinjka River. Then you can take the cable car up to the 1,532 meter high Vogel Mountain for a spectacular view of Mount Triglav, the highest peak in the Julian Alps. Spend the evening in one of the cozy village pubs and try the local homemade honey brandy.
