Triglav Lakes Trek

3-Day Tour, Bohinj to Pokljuka

Join us on a traverse across a remarkable kingdom of high-mountain lakes underneath towering steep walls and conquer Mt. Triglav with us, the highest mountain of Slovenia. Arguably the most beautiful Alpine valley in Slovenia, the Triglav Lakes Valley extends about eight kilometers from the 1,294-m elevation above Lake Bohinj to the 1,933-m elevation, not too far from Triglav itself. Therefore, after a beautiful day in the green Triglav Lakes Valley, which starts right above Lake Bohinj, we ascend the gray rocky world beneath Triglav, make the iconic climb to the highest mountain of Slovenia, and then return back down on probably the most scenic trail a mesmerizing Alpine plateau called Pokljuka. A breathtaking trek for the adventurous!
