Outdoorlads is offering the opportunity to visit the small and beautiful country of Slovenia for a week of trekking and activities in the stunning Julian Alps. An action-packed week for just £1050 including all accommodation, activities, food and transport. This trip is being run by OutdoorLads Event Leader and British Mountain Leader, Nick Read along with an experienced Slovenian guide. Our main objective will be to climb Mt Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain and to trek in the surrounding Triglavski National Park. There are also lots of adrenaline filled activities planned for our last few days in the country.
Slovenia lies in Eastern Europe bordering Austria and Italy to the North and Croatia to the South. The Slovenia Adventure Week offers all the best outdoor activities that Slovenia has to offer. Triglav is a low altitude peak (2864m) that involves some scrambling to reach the summit. The ridge is equipped with an iron walkway called a Via Ferrata to help us reach the top securely. A good head for heights and good walking fitness is required. During this trek we will be staying in mountain huts and pensions which are similar to hostels and eating local cuisine.
After the four day trek in the stunning Julian Alps we will travel to Bovec to raft on the world famous emerald Soca river. This river runs through Slovenia and Italy and eventually drains into the Adriatic Sea near Trieste. Our final night will be spent in a hostel in Ljubljana where there will be the opportunity to do some sightseeing in the capital of this friendly little country.
This price for this action-packed week is only £1050 which includes 7 nights accommodation in hostels and mountain huts, all transfers and the activities listed in the itinerary and all food apart from a final meal in Ljubljana.
