Across the Julian Alps to Triglav
Slovenia, Trek & Walk, 8 days - from £695 (land only) - from €975 (land only) - from $1,175 (land only)
Day 1: Rendezvous at the group hotel in Bled. A single timed group airport transfer is provided from Ljubljana Airport to Bled. Depending on your arrival time you may wish to walk around the lake (1hr) or visit the church and island in the centre. KE Land Only package begins with the evening meal.
Day 2: Leaving Bled, we take a short drive to the Mencingarjev Hut in the Lower Bohinj Valley and follow the Sava Bohinjka River upstream along the valley floor, a relaxed start to the walk. Once we start ascending, the scenery changes dramatically as we head towards Crna Prst (1844m) and the Zorko Jelincic Hut (1835m) where we enjoy our first overnight in the mountains. Walk distance approx: 4-5hrs
Day 3: Today we start with a bird'eye view of Lake Bohinj as we set off for a superb day of wild and rugged walking. We'll have the trails almost to ourselves and some of the finest ridge walking in Europe ahead, including views to the coast on a clear day. We trek first to Rodica, then Vogel (1922m) before descending to overnight at the Razor Planina Hut (1300m). Walk distance approx: 7-8hrs
Day 4: After breakfast we leave the hut and head deeper into the Triglav National Park, where we start to ascend above the tree line. Today's highlight is crossing the Skrbino pass (1891m) on spectacular trails, before descending to the Dom na Komni Hut (1525m), which offers one of the best views over Lake Bohinj. Walk distance approx: 5-6hrs
Day 5: The breath-taking 'Valley of the Seven Lakes ' is where we head today, walking through an unforgettable lunar landscape scattered with mountain lakes and dominent peaks. In stark contrast to the green valleys we left behind, tonight's overnight is at the Prehodavci Hut (2071m), one of the most simple but beautifully located huts in the national park. Walk distance approx: 5-6hrs.
Day 6: The morning's view down into Trenta Valley is a great reward for our early start as we trek towards the three peaked summit of Triglav (Three Heads), which dominates the skyline ahead of us. Initially we climb via Hribarice (2306m) and up to the saddle of Dolic (2164m) before reach our hut on the shoulders of Triglav at Kredarica (2615m). Walk distance approx: 5-6hrs.
Day 7: The highlight of our week is the fantastic ridge ascent of Triglav (2864m) which involves some sections of via ferrata and scrambling - an unforgettable experience. After the all important summit photos and enjoying a panorama over the whole of the Sloveninan Alps, we descend to Rudno Polje. From there we meet our transport and head back to Bled for a celebratory meal and `slivovica!`
Day 8: KE Land Only package ends after breakfast with an early afternoon single group transfer from Bled to Ljubljana Airport.
