Last year summer we spent 10 days on vacation in the Slovenian alps at Triglav National Park and also some days at the coast. We started our trip by taking an overnight train to Ljubljana. From there we went up to Bled by train and spent one night at a campsite a little bit out of town before heading into Triglav National Park. From there on we were on the way by foot, hiking every day and sleeping at Camping Sites or in huts up in the mountains.We Made our way through the valley of 7 lakes and up to Triglav Mountain itself before exploring the Soca. Luckily we met some nice girls who took us with them in their car to the coast of Slovenia, while we also stopped in Triest in Italy along the way to get some Italian groceries. At the coast we spent the last few days of our Trip before going back to Ljubljana and Heading Home.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
Plan the hiking trips a bit more detailed to avoid days with a lot of km
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Due to not so much planning in advance, we had to hike for 11 hours one day because there were no spots left at the hut in the mountain
How was the food?
Bife pri kralju
What tips would you give a friend?
Book huts in the mountain a few days in advance to make sure you have a spot there
Trekking gear, if you want to make it to Triglav's top I would recommend taking a helmet and climbing equipment
Public transport with trains or buses works quite well, to get to the coast you might need a car
