Mountain tours Slovenia - Mountains & lakes
One of the mountain tours Slovenia 'Between mountains and lakes' in the Triglav National Park is meant for those hiking enthusiasts that enjoy a view of Julian peaks, crystal clear alpine lakes and smooth paths carved into the slopes overgrown with pastures.
We begin our mountain tour Slovenia near waterfall Savica, the source of Lake Bohinj in the heart of Triglav national park. The hardest part of the trip is the gravel path made by the Italians in WW1 that leads to the mountain hut on Komna. From here on we make our way past solitary mountains, accompanied by the sweet smell of dwarf pine and rhododendron, to the glacier valley, home of the crystal clear Triglav lakes. Those who have a strong heart have an ice bath waiting for them, to strengthen your heart even more.
On the second day the path takes us uphill in the glacier valley to Triglav lakes, where we will take a look at three more lakes. On this tour, close to Dolič, we will ascend into the valley Mišeljski konec, where we can see chamoises, rock goats, marmots and a lot of alpine plants.
On the third day we will go back in time, to when the alpine pastures and mountains were full of cows and goats. Only a few remnants of those times remain, places where you can taste sour milk, žganci (hard boiled buckwheat or corn mush) and cheese. We will take delight in observing Alpine peaks and sunbathing on the soft mountain grass. For those who missed a bath in the first two days, they will have a beautiful mountain lake waiting for them on the Planina near the lake.
