As the wildlife wakes up from its winter slumber and meadows become flooded with blooming wildflowers, there’s no better time to go on a quintessential Alpine adventure. Over the course of three long days, hike hut to hut in the Seven Lakes Valley, a peaceful oasis nested in the heart of Julian Alps—Slovenia’s pride and joy. Saunter through verdant pastures, admire the sweeping views of deep turquoise lakes, and indulge in authentic Slovenian meals, including a cheese tasting at a local artisan shop. Nights will be spent in two different mountain huts, each sporting a better view than the last: the Vodnik Lodge loftily perched on a cliff, hemmed in by Alpine peaks and the Triglav Lake Lodge sitting right by the lake, sheltered by conifer woodlands. Join this summer tour and see it for yourself!

  • Stay at mountain huts with unbeatable views of peaks and lakes

  • Vibrant colors of flowery meadows, verdant valleys and turquoise lakes

  • Feel the local culture by passing through quaint villages and relishing Slovenian cuisine

Alberto Dariol about Hut to Hut Hiking Slovenia on Google Reviews

We were a big group and it was so much fun hiking in the Alps from hut to hut. The places we have stayed at were superb and very authentic, the food was amazing and the staff very friendly. Our guide was fun and very knowledgeable, she told us so much about the culture and places we have hiked in. You get to see many pastures on the way, each with its own story. The Julian Alps felt so unreal, like straight from a fairytale. The tour was nicely organized and we felt very comfortable at all times. The tour is not too hard but can be made harder if you feel like it, there are so many peaks all around.

Marco Dalla Valle about Hut to Hut Hiking Slovenia on Google Reviews

Met the guide Klemen to plan a new hiking tour in Slovenia. He was such a reliable, responsive and smart hiking expert with great experience and deep knowledge of the Slovenian scenery, mountains, trails, hotels. I can highly recommend this company if you plan a hiking tour yourself or for a group.

Veronica Dietrich about Hut to Hut Hiking Slovenia on Google Reviews

A perfect hike for a family! It is not too easy but quite manageable with all the huts on the way so you really don’t have to carry too much with you and on the third day, you can make a great rest by the beautiful river. We had a great guide who showed us around and took care of all the organization around the accommodation and food. The communication with the team before the tour was spot on and we have really enjoyed the hike worry-free. We have seen a great portion of the region and after the tour we simply chilled in Bled.

Jana Braun about Hut to Hut Hiking Slovenia on Google Reviews

We booked the 7 lakes tour and the hike to Triglav and Klemen safely guided us up and down the mountain. We felt very well taken care of and I would book another tour if we come back to Slovenia. We had 2 really great views and I was very excited. Thanks so much!

Things to know

      • An experienced, local hiking guide with extensive knowledge of the area
      • 3 days of hut-to-hut hiking in the Seven Lakes Valley
      • Transportation from Bled to Bohinj, your starting point
      • Drop-off at your hotel (if it’s in the Bohinj area)

    What’s not included:

      • Transportation to and from Slovenia
      • Transfer from Ljubljana (possible to organize at an additional fee)
      • Accommodation in huts (60-70€ per night, includes half-board) — your guide can take care of the reservations and you pay the fee at the hut
      • Lunches (can be purchased at the hut or along the trail)
      • Guide gratuities — optional
  • This three-day hut-to-hut hike in the Seven Lakes Valley is suited for people with reasonable fitness levels and with basic hiking experience—it’s suitable for anyone who’s able to hike for half of the day. You’ll be walking around 12 km (7.5 miles) a day and the most you’ll vertically gain is 1,300 m (4,265 ft), all while carrying a backpack for three days in a row. The trails are sometimes narrow and uneven with some loose and rocky sections, but they’re not overly technical.

  • For clothing, we recommend bringing:

      • Lightweight hiking boots or shoes
      • Spare clothes for layering
      • Insulation jacket and rain jacket
      • Spare socks, underwear, and shirts
      • Gloves
      • Sunhat and headwear

    Here’s a list of other things you’ll need:

      • Water bottle or hydration bladder (2L capacity)
      • Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)

    Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

  • You’ll be staying at two lodges during your hut-to-hut hiking tour in the Seven Lakes Valley, with the first one being the Vodnik Lodge. Perched at an elevation of 1,817 m (5,965 ft), the Vodnik Lodge is encircled by Alpine peaks. Dating back to 1895 and named after a Slovenian Enlightenment poet Valentin Vodnik, the lodge can accommodate up to 70 people and it has 50 seats in dining rooms and on the lodge’s terrace. It has its own drinking water source and a generator for electricity, but the real showstopper is its location and its unparalleled view. 

    For your second night, you’re staying at the Triglav Lake Lodge, sitting at an elevation of 1,453 m (4,770 ft). The lodge is nested right by the lake and it’s surrounded by lush spruce forests. There are 80 seats in catering rooms and 90 beds, and it also has electricity. 

    These mountain huts don’t have single rooms, but there are private rooms for 2 or 4 people. Reach out to us if you would like to be placed in a more private room. We can’t promise anything, as such mountain huts are very popular in the summer, but we’ll try to accommodate you as you wish!
