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).
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.
