Explore the pristine nature of Slovenia’s largest national park on one of the most popular hikes in the Julian Alps. The environment inside the park is protected and thus pure. If you’re used to city air, a deep breath here will feel like taking off a weighted vest.
And make no mistake – we’ll make sure you’ll be getting plenty of oxygen by making you breathe heavily. This is not the easiest hike and it does take some stamina. However, it should be more than manageable for most fit people.
The tour is not very steep or technical, but requires a solid fitness level of hiking for around w8 hours.
We will start the hike at a relatively high altitude. Hiking through the forests we will reach several high alpine pastures, where shepherds communities still operate and produce dairy products. There are two mountain huts offering refreshments on the way, the second one being our goal for the day, by the magnificent Double Lake.
There are more lakes higher up the valley, but exploring the upper part of the Seven lakes valley is most enjoyable in a two-day hike. We will be happy to customize the tour for you upon request!
