Overview

Why Slovenia? Well, why not! If you are looking for a ski touring trip in a breath-taking environment, but don't want to risk finding too many people, Slovenia is the place for you. Unique and wild spots...and March seems the best period to go skiing in the Julian Alps. Join Mitja, a local IFMGA mountain guide, for three days of wild ski touring in the Triglav National Park Traverse, going from Bohinj lake to Mojstrana. He will allow you to see breathtaking landscapes and enjoy beautiful slopes, going up and down! The backcountry tour includes skiing and skinning up to 35° with some short an tricky descents on skins :) Your basecamp will be in the mountains...you will stay in different huts in the middle of the park! As Mitja says, " If you like goulash, red beans, and beer, this is the perfect winter trip for you!" :)
