Slovenia

ABOUT THE TRIP

Famous for it's pristine lakes and monumental peaks Triglav National Park forms a large section of the Julian Alps. With Mount Triglav at it's heart, this location has everything to offer the nomadic trail runner. From alpine skylines to a scenic water course of rivers, waterfalls and dazzling shorelines of Lake Bohinj - the less known sister of Lake Bled.

 

Run away with us to Slovenia and explore the serene wilderness, accessing outstanding trails on foot from our base. After winding through valleys, forest and mountains we take a soothing dip - wild swimming at it's very best.

We take a brief detour to visit slap savica waterfall before heading to lake Bohinj shoreline, here we follow this trail back to the accommodation. Back at base we refuel with lunch and spend the afternoon relaxing or exploring the nearby Mostnica Gorge. Or why not have a swim in the lake? The team and guests reconvene over dinner.

After breakfast and a warm up we head out on an slightly longer but slightly less aggressive run. Today we remain south of lake Bohinj.  traversing at a the length of the lake through alpine forest and single track before ascending up to Eagle head viewpoint.
