Trip details

Accomodation options*

In case you would like to ensure a room to yourself, and not share it with anybody, there is a possibility of a single supplement for an additional $285. However, keep in mind that you’ll be spending two nights at mountain huts, where there’s no possibility of single rooms. In case you don’t choose anything, we will assume you don’t mind being placed in a room with other hikers.

  • Squeezed between the Alps and the Mediterranean, Slovenia is a small country brimming with natural marvels and mouth-drooling dishes—some of which you’ll get to relish in a 2-star Michelin restaurant led by the World’s Best Female Chef of 2017. And what better way to trek and taste the best of Slovenia than with a great team of women by your side? Over the course of your 8-day hiking tour, some of the sights you might expect are hidden waterfalls, a small church island thrown in the middle of Lake Bled, or the emerald Vintgar Gorge. And just when you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll reward your taste buds with visits to mountain farms, fine restaurants, and vineyards.
    • Arrive in Ljubljana and check into your hotel. The capital of Slovenia boasts a myriad of wonderful sights, so walk along the river banks, discover bridges, explore the historical city center, or visit the colorful marketplace. Or maybe check out the Ljubljana Castle, from which you can admire the city. In the evening, meet up with your all-women team, with whom you’ll spend the upcoming week. Have a welcome dinner together with traditional Slovenian food.

And then it’s time for a gastronomic experience—relish the slow food dinner prepared by Ana Roš, Netflix-featured chef, at her restaurant Hiša Franko with two Michelin stars!
