Triglav National Park Hut to Hut Hike, Slovenia

Hiking Hut to Hut across Triglav National Park in 4 days

Triglav National Park is the largest protected area in Slovenia and covers an area of 838 square kilometers. This alpine wonderland encompasses a huge chunk of the Julian Alps (Julijske Alpe), which is part of the Southern Limestone Alps. The park’s name is derived from the highest mountain in Slovenia, Mount Triglav (2864 m).

We hiked four days hut to hut across Triglav National Park, starting at Vršič Pass (close to Kranjska Gora) and ending at Lake Bohinj

Because this is a point-to-point hike, we relied on public transit to get to the trailhead.

We designed this custom hiking route across Triglav National Park to see the highlights of the Eastern Julian Alps, including the high alpine plateau of Kriških podih, Mount Triglav, the Seven Lakes Valley, Luknja pass, and the fairy tale pasture around Planini pri Jezeru.

This hut-to-hut hike was sensational. It rewarded us with enchanting views of mountains, edelweiss, ibex, and alpine lakes.

Triglav National Park 4 Day Hut to Hut Hiking Route

This Triglav National Park hiking guide outlines each stage of our trek across the Julian Alps. We’ve also included tips on how to save money, what to pack, and where to stay.

  • Day 1: Vršič Pass – Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih (9 km, 6:30 hours)
  • Day 2: Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih – Koča na Doliču (9.4 km, 6 hours)
  • Day 3: Koča na Doliču – Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih (9.1 km, 5 hours)
  • Day 4: Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih – Lake Bohinj (16 km, 6 hours)

Possible Trail Closures

We encourage you to reach out to the mountain huts for updates on trail conditions in advance of your trip.

The stanje-poti website is one resource to find out if trails are closed. However, in our experience, this website isn’t always updated on a timely basis.

According to the website, part of Stage 1, specifically the trail between Mlinarica saddle and the Planja saddle is CLOSED (part of Stage 1), due to damaged guardrails.

An alternative starting point for stage 1 is Trenta. It’s a 4 hour ascent to Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih along the lahka označena pot. 

More info here: Zadnjica – Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih.

However, in early August 2022, several readers have informed us that they were able to complete stage 1 starting at Vršič Pass without any difficulty.

Triglav Trek Difficulty

This Triglav hut-to-hut hike is not suitable for beginners, or hikers without alpine experience.

This is a challenging hut-to-hut hike, but manageable if you have high-alpine hiking experience, specifically in limestone and karst environments. This hike requires scrambling and hiking along secured passages with fixed cables and pegs.

If you’re considering this route, you should be surefooted, agile, and very confident hiking in scree (loose rocks). 

Some of our readers have informed us that this trek was the hardest multi-day hike they have ever trekked (and they’ve hiked the GR20 in Corsica among other long distance trails). Other readers said that it was very difficult because of the uneven limestone terrain and scrambling.

The difficulty of this trek will really depend on your experience.

While a full via ferrata kit isn’t necessary to tackle the secured passages along this Triglav Trek, a climbing helmet is essential for your safety.

Tips for Hiking Hut to Hut in Slovenia

Responsible Travel in Triglav National Park

Triglav National Park is a treasure and it’s a luxury to be able to visit. Please read these rules and follow them during your visit.

  • Respect the habitats of animals and plants. Picking flowers is not allowed.
  • Camping outside designated areas is not permitted. Wild camping is illegal. 
  • Take all garbage back with you down to the valley. Leave no trace.
  • Park’s trails are allowed only for hiking, not for mountain biking.
  • Bathing in mountain lakes is strictly prohibited. (source)

Make Reservations for Mountain Huts

  • It’s important to make reservations for overnight stays several weeks in advance. If you’re staying in a mountain hut during the weekend, you should book earlier.
  • The most reliable way to make reservations is by calling the hut directly. The email response rate is 50%.
  • You can often choose between sleeping in a shared dormitory or a private room.

Here’s everything you need to know about hut-to-hut hiking in Slovenia.

You can find each hut’s contact info on their PZS (Alpine Association of Slovenia) page.

Learn more about making hut reservations: Slovenian Mountain Huts

Packing Essentials

While this route involves several secured passages with fixed cables, you do not need a via ferrata kit (harness and lanyard) for this hike. A climbing helmet is advisable because rockfall is common in the Julian Alps.

Read our complete hut to hut hiking packing list

Note: None of the huts along this high-alpine route have showers. You may want to bring wipes, or a wash cloth to refresh yourself after each stage.

Become a Member of an Alpine Club

You’ll get a significant discount on your overnight stay if you present your alpine club membership card. There are tons of alpine clubs throughout Europe, so just confirm with the hut owner whether your alpine club is accepted.

If you don’t have an Alpine Club membership, you can apply for the Alpine Association of Slovenia. Processing may take a few weeks.

We’re members of the Österreichischen Alpenverein (Austrian Alpine Club), and so we receive discounts on all mountain huts that have contracts with the Austrian Alpine Club. We received a discount in every hut in Slovenia.

Buy a Hiking Map

When planning a trek through the Slovenian Alps, a hiking map is essential.

Via Ferrata trails are typically denoted by dotted lines. Routes that are difficult are denoted in broken lines.

We recommend purchasing the Sidarta Triglav Trail Map 1:25 000. Hotels, tourist shops, and sports stores in Slovenia typically sell these maps.

Other options are Julische Alpen: 1:50K Hiking Map WK141 or Triglav National Park WK5141 (both freytag+berndt).

Bring enough Cash and Budget for 50 EUR per person per day

Note: budget an additional 15 EUR per day if you don’t have an alpine club membership card.

  • Tourist Tax: 1.27 EUR per person per night
  • Dormitory Mattress: 9 – 14 EUR per person with Alpine Club Membership discount. 11.70 – 18.20 EUR without Alpine Club Membership.
  • Private room (2-beds): 11 – 18.90 EUR per person with Alpine Club Membership Discount. 14.30 – 24.50 EUR without Alpine Club Membership.
  • Breakfast: 5 EUR
  • Coffee: 2 – 2.60 EUR
  • Dinner Meal: 6-10 EUR
  • Soup: 5 EUR
  • Beer & Wine: 3-4 EUR
  • 1.5 L Water Bottle: 2.50 – 4 EUR
  • Appliance Charging (phone, camera batteries): Free

Follow the Knafelc Waymark

All trails are marked with the Knafelc Waymark, which is a red circle with a white center. Trail markings are generally well-maintained and easy to follow.

Bring Water and Snacks

We recommend bringing a few snacks with you (trail mix, bars, etc…). In terms of lunch on each day of the trek, you have a few options.

Day 1: There are no huts between Vršič Pass and Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih. Make sure to bring a snack with you.

Day 2: There’s no hut between Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih and Koča na Doliču. Bring a snack for today. We ate lunch and dinner at Koča na Doliču (one meal is enough here).

Day 3: You can eat lunch at Zasavska koča na Prehodavcih, a mountain hut located between Koča na Doliču and Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih.

Day 4: You can eat lunch at Koča na Planini pri Jezeru, a mountain hut located along the High Bohinj Pasture Route between Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih and Lake Bohinj.

Descent to Luknja Pass, Julian Alps, Slovenia

Arrival day in Kranjska Gora

We recommend spending at least one night in Kranjska Gora, before starting the trek, because this Slovenian alpine town is a lovely destination in its own right. It’s also good to stay in Kranjska Gora for acclimatization.

Where to Stay Before the Trek

Kranjska Gora

Budget | ​​Pri Marusi is a centrally-located guesthouse in Kranjska Gora with exceedingly kind and attentive owners. Rooms are modern and immaculate. Breakfast is included. 

More budget options: Vitranc Apartments, Gostilna Pri Martinu, and  B&B Brezov Gaj

Midrange | Hotel Vandot is a cozy and comfortable hotel in the center of town. Breakfast is included. 

Midrange | Garni Hotel Miklič is a traditional, family-run accommodation with spotless rooms and raving reviews. Guests love the welcoming hosts, central location, and superb breakfast.

More midrange optionsApartma Peček Kranjska Gora, Hotel Pino Alpino, and Vila Mojca – Apartmaji Lena

Look for accommodation in Kranjska Gora.

Vršič Pass

Budget | Erjavčeva koča is a rustic mountain hut located directly at Vršič Pass. They offer a selection of private and dormitory rooms. It makes sense to stay here, because you’re perfectly positioned for tackling stage 1 of the trek.

Look for accommodation at Vršič Pass.

Approaching Bovški Gamsovec, Triglav National Park Hut to hut hike

How to Get to the Vršič Pass Trailhead

There’s a bus that departs several times a day from Kranjska Gora to Vršič Pass. The same bus continues to Trenta and Soča Valley.

Use the website or AlpeTour website to find out what the bus schedule is in advance. Timetables are usually published on the Kranjska Gora website as well. When we took this bus, a one-way ticket to the pass cost 3 EUR.

The road to Vršič Pass is known as the Russian Road (Ruska cesta) because it was built by Russian prisoners of war during the First World War. 

Kriških podih alpine plateau, Julian Alps, Slovenia

Triglav National Park Hut to Hut Route Description

Day 1 - Triglav National Park Hike

Stage 1 of this Triglav Trek follows the Slovenian Mountain Trail (marked with the number 1). There are several ways to reach today’s destination, Kriških podih.

We opted for the easiest route, which circumvented Mount Prisank. If you’re a confident alpine hiker with lots of via ferrata experience, you could hike up and over Prisank on your way to sedlo Planja. We recommend consulting a hiking map to see what your options are.  

Stage 1: Vršič Pass (1611 m) – Pagan Girl Lookout Point – Na robu – Zadnje Plate – Sedlo Planja (2349) – Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih (2050 m)

  • Distance: 9 km
  • Time Needed: 6:30 hours
  • Elevation Gain: 1269 m
  • Elevation Loss: 855 m
  • Minimum Elevation: 1607 m
  • Maximum Elevation: 2424 m

From Vršič Pass, head to the Pagan Girl Rock lookout point, marked by an info-board.

At the Pagan Girl Rock lookout, you’ll find the turn-off to Prisank.

After passing through dwarf pine, the first segment of the trail is initially very rocky.

At Na Robu, the trail forks. You should head down and right. We somehow missed the trail and continued in the direction of Grintovci. Luckily, there’s a route labeled in red paint “Mlinarica” that connects to the trail we should have been on. However, it’s really easy to miss, as the trail marker is close to the ground. This trail is very poorly maintained and hard to follow. So, don’t miss the turn-off around Na robu like us.

The trail follows just above, or just below the treeline for a long time. Eventually, you’ll reach a grassy open meadow framed by peaks. Take a break here.

The trail traverses the meadow and then steadily climbs. You’ll reach an intersection, where the trail leads left to Prisank and right to Razor. Head towards Razor.

The climb to Sedlo Planja, the mountain saddle between Razor and Planja, is challenging. We got caught in a thunderstorm as we were approaching the pass, which made this segment more difficult. Note: we recommend wearing a helmet like this women’s climbing helmet, or men’s climbing helmet for this part of the trail.

At the Planja saddle, you can hike to the summit of Razor and/or Planja. Or, you can simply enjoy your first glimpse of Mount Triglav and start the descent to Kriških podih. 

The trail is assisted by some steel cables and ropes. Be extra careful on the descent, because you’ll be hiking down scree and loose rocky terrain.

After about 1:00 – 1:30 hours, the trail finally flattens out. As we hiked towards the Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih, we saw two amazing things. First, we saw an ibex, and then the most beloved flower of the Alps, Edelweiss. The trail makes a final ascent to the mountain hut.

Sp. Kriško jezero, Kriških podih alpine plateau, Julian Alps, Slovenia | Moon & Honey Travel

Stay in Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih mountain hut

This hut is positioned high above the Trenta Valley and surrounded by peaks and three alpine lakes. There’s nothing like lounging in a chair outside this hut with a Radler.

As we soaked up the late afternoon sun, a few sheep visited us and used our table to scratch their backs (see photo below).

From the hut, you can take a short hike to the lake: Sp. Kriško jezero (1880 m). To reach the lake, take the trail in the direction of Trenta.

Pogačnikov dom only offers shared rooms. The prices vary based on how many people are in your room. If you sleep in the dormitory-loft (cabine), you’ll pay 9 EUR (with discount). If you sleep in a 4-bed-room, you’ll pay ~18 EUR (with discount). 

Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih, Triglav National Park, Julian Alps, Slovenia | Moon & Honey Travel

Hike from Bovški Gamsovec to Luknja, Triglav National Park

Day 2 - Triglav National Park Hike

Day 2 is phenomenal. After climbing over the mountain Bovški Gamsovec, you’re met with heart-melting views of Mount Triglav. In July, the trail was lined with colorful wildflowers.

Stage 2: Pogačnikov dom na Kriških podih (2050 m) – Bovški Gamsovec (2391 m) – Luknja (1756 m) – Koča na Doliču (2151 m)

  • Distance: 9.4 km
  • Time Needed: 6 hours
  • Elevation Gain: 1374 m
  • Elevation Loss: 1250 m
  • Minimum Elevation: 1456 m
  • Maximum Elevation: 2349 m

Stage 2 of our Triglav National Park trek begins by crossing slabs of limestone before dramatically ascending to the mountain Bovški Gamsovec.

It takes about 1 hour to reach the Bovški Gamsovec ridge. There are assisted ropes and cables to aid your ascent. To reach the summit, you can take a short detour via a protected climbing route.

Otherwise, the path continues over the ridge. Here, you’ll see the incredible northern wall of Triglav.

The descent is gentle as you hike through beautiful wildflowers and grassy slopes. You’re heading to the mountain pass Luknja. We saw ibex on this part of the trail.

As you near Luknja, you might see people climbing up the North Face of Triglav via the Plemenice trail. This is also called the Bamberg route. It’s impressive but looks incredibly dangerous.

At Luknja, you’ll turn right and hike down a windy path.

The trail eventually divides and you’ll want to take the trail to the left along pod steno. This part of the hike is uphill but very easy. You’ll have sweeping valley views to your right. The trail then flattens out for a while.

The final stretch is another ascent to the mountain hut Koča na Doliču.

Triglav North Wall, Triglav National Park Trek, Julian Alps, Slovenia | Moon & Honey Travel

Stay in Koča na Doliču mountain hut

This mountain hut is popular, due to its proximity to Triglav. Most of the hikers we met, were planning on summiting Triglav the next morning – which might be something you want to do.

If so, you definitely need to bring a via ferrata kit as well as a light backpack to carry water and snacks. All the hikers left their heavy trekking packs at the hut and retrieved their stuff after their Mt. Triglav summit climb.

If you want to summit Mount Triglav, also read this guide: Hiking to Triglav from Pokljuka.

Koča na Doliču has a great location, but there are some downsides. There’s no running water. The toilet facilities are pretty gross (squat toilet).

You can only check-in at 4:00 p.m., or later. If you arrive after 5:00 p.m., you need to notify them before. The food was okay, but the portions were meager.

And, if you opt for their half-board rate (which includes breakfast and dinner), the breakfast includes white coffee, which is a wheat-based coffee with milk, not real coffee.

If you want real coffee, you have to pay more. Other than that, it was clean and comfortable.

Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih mountain hut in Seven Lakes Valle, Triglav National Park, Slovenia

Day 3 - Triglav National Park Hike

Today, you’ll venture into the Seven Lakes Valley, one of Slovenia’s most beautiful landscapes. The hike begins with summiting Kanjavec.

You’ll have an opportunity to take a break at the perfectly situated mountain hut Zasavska koča na Prehodavcih, before starting the slow descent through the lake-dotted valley.

Stage 3: Koča na Doliču (2151 m) – Kanjavec (2568 m) – Zasavska koča na Prehodavcih (2071 m) – Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih (1685 m)

  • Distance: 9.1 km
  • Time Needed: 5 hours
  • Elevation Gain: 479 m
  • Elevation Loss: 943 m
  • Minimum Elevation: 1688 m
  • Maximum Elevation: 2568 m

We hiked to Seven Lakes Valley via the mountain Kanjavec.

If you’re looking at a map, you’ll notice that there are at least two other options. According to the hut staff at Koča na Doliču, the trail via Skozi rizo shouldn’t even be on the map, as it’s not a secure, or safe route. The other option is to go via Dolič saddle( 2164 m) and Hribarice (2358 m), which is a popular route.

The hike to the Kanjavec summit takes about 1:30 hours. The trail is very manageable. However, shortly before reaching the summit, you’ll have to climb up a steep section of trail that’s secured with ropes. That secured stretch is challenging, but only 5 meters in length.

As you ascend, you’ll see Triglav bathed in the morning light. You’re surrounded by limestone mountains and it’s a treat to hike up here in the morning. You’ll likely have the whole mountain all to yourself.

After reaching the summit, the trail dives down over scree slopes. It feels really desolate on this side. When we hiked here in summer 2018, the trail markings were fading. We needed to use to make sure we were going the right way.

This rocky terrain carried on until Zasavska koča na Prehodavcih. We took a detour to visit this mountain hut because we had sufficient time and wanted to rest. On the way to the hut, you’ll see the lake Rjavo jezero (2006 m).

To get back on the trail towards Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih (Seven Lakes Valley Lodge), simply follow the signs. The path is well-marked.

The first gem you’ll pass is Zeleno jezero (1988 m), a emerald-colored lake with limestone boulders and a picturesque backdrop.

The second lake you’ll hike by is Veliko jezero Ledvicka (1831 m). When illuminated by the sun, it glows with beautiful tones of teal and royal blue.

As you lose elevation, the plants will be higher and you’ll start to hike through the forest.

You’ll pass one more lake before reaching the hut.

Stay in Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih mountain hut

The Seven Lakes Valley Hut is a stunner. Surrounded by crystal-clear lakes, it’s what hiking dreams are made of. One of the most spellbinding sites of this whole trek is seeing the mountains reflected in the waters of Dvojno jezero. 

The hut has running water. There’s also a water fountain outside.

Unfortunately, the shower is no longer in operation.

There are both private rooms and shared bedrooms available. This is a popular destination, so definitely book in advance.

Koča na Planini pri Jezeru, Bohinj Alpine Pasture, Julian Alps, Triglav National Park

Day 4 - Triglav National Park Hike

On the final day of your hut-to-hut hike in Triglav National Park, you’ll leave the high mountains and hike through alpine pastures and forests.

Days 1 through 3 were filled with dramatic alpine landscapes. Day 4 is full of romantic scenes of rustic alpine pasture huts and grazing cattle.

End the day with a swim in Lake Bohinj and a stay at Hotel Majerca or Hotel Bohinj.

Stage 4: Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih (1685 m) – Štapce (1851 m) – Bregarjevo zavetišče na planini Viševnik (1620 m) – Koča na Planini pri Jezeru (1453 m) – Kosijev dom na Vogarj (1054 m) – Lake Bohinj (526 m)

  • Distance: 16 km
  • Time Needed: 6 hours
  • Elevation Gain: 497 m
  • Elevation Loss: 1648 m
  • Minimum Elevation: 527 m
  • Maximum Elevation: 1854 m

From the Seven Lakes Valley Hut, you’ll leave the valley and ascend to the mountain ridge Štapce.

After hiking over Štapce, you’ll hike a gentle path through dwarf pines.

Follow signs to planini Viševnik.

You’ll cross a small alpine pasture with several huts called Ovčarija, before reaching Bregarjevo zavetišče na planini Viševnik (Bregarjevo Shelter on Plateau Viševnik). Bregarjevo used to be a cheese factory. In 1981, the old farm was transformed into a shelter, which offers overnight stays. It’s open from early June until the end of September.

Bregarjevo zavetišče is a charming place to relax and enjoy refreshments.

The trail continues to the mountain hut Koča na Planini pri Jezeru, which is situated above a lake and surrounded by tiny wooden huts. This is an ideal place for lunch. They serve traditional Slovenian stews and soups.

From here, follow signs to Planina Vogar, signed 1:30 hours.

The trail is wide. After about 70-80 minutes, the trail joins a paved road for about 10 minutes. Follow the paved road until you see signs and a dirt road veering left and leading in the direction of Vogar. You’ll pass by several huts and lodgings before reaching Kosijev dom.

At Kosijev dom, take a short 3-minute detour to a Lake Bohinj lookout point. You can grab a drink and bite to eat at the hut as well.

From Kosijev dom na Vogarj continue descending one hour to Lake Bohinj.

  • If you’re visiting the Alps this month, you may be able to experience a traditional alpine cattle drive (Almabtrieb, Alpabzug, Alpabtrieb, Viehscheid, Désalpe, etc…). 
Across the Alps, cattle, goats, and sheep graze in the mountain pastures during the summer months. At the end of the grazing season, farmers herd their animals back down to their winter stables in the valley. 
In many places, this cattle drive descent is a festive occasion, where locals celebrate the safe return of the animals with a homecoming parade, music, food, and general merriment. 
The best places to see traditional cattle drives are Austria (Tyrol, Salzburg, Vorarlberg), Germany (Upper Bavaria), Switzerland, and Italy (South Tyrol).

  • We’re so happy it’s September - the month of clear skies, no thunderstorms (hopefully / it’s been a crazy year), and cooler temperatures.

  • Six years ago, Kati and I drove from Cologne to Vienna, stopping in Baden-Baden, the Black Forest, Appenzell, and the Dolomites along the way. 
That trip changed the trajectory of our life. It’s when we fell in love with hiking and traveling in the Alps.
We arrived in Appenzell, Switzerland, during their annual music folk festival. The town center was teeming with folk musical ensembles and hundreds of locals, clad in traditional Appenzeller Trachten. 
Ever since, we’ve been dreaming of returning to Appenzell to re-experience some of the magic of our first trip. 
Fortunately, our second trip coincided with several Alpabzüge (cattle drive descents).
