Slovenia: Julian Alps Traverse
Little known outside Slovenia, the Julian Alps are the unsung mountain range of Europe. Giant limestone peaks dramatically twist their way from the lush, verdant meadows of the valleys below, creating a unique landscape that Slovenians are proud to call their own. This trip encompasses all the very best of this special mountain range, with an opportunity to reach the summit of Mt. Triglav, which rewards with views to Austria, Italy and Croatia. Exodus also offers a weekend version of this trip: *Mount Triglav Weekend (TVI) *
Your tour to Europe includes:
- Ascend Mt. Triglav, Slovenia's highest peak
- Included: * All breakfast and 5 dinners included * All accommodation * Transfer for group flights * Equipment hire for assent of Triglav
- Food: Whilst trekking we include dinner and breakfast in the huts. Hut breakfasts are usually made up of: bread, jam, cheese with tea, coffee etc. Lunches are not included and can be bought en route in the mountain huts we pass each day. On some days we will buy packed lunch and eat out in the mountains, other days we will stop for hot meals in local restaurants. On the first day after walking we'll visit a local supermarket and stock up on snacks for the five days. Dinner is usually two courses consisting of traditional Slovenian alpine food (for example - goulash, spaghetti, or alpine stew followed by fruit, pudding, strudel or pancakes). For vegetarians there is a little less variety, vegans even more so, but this shouldn't lead to anyone going hungry. Please inform sales at the time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.
