Walking holidays in Europe

Our walking packages

Let us guide you on secluded trails through sun-dappled woodland and wildflower meadows to upland alpine pastures. Take in lungfuls of crisp mountain air as you gaze over the most exceptional mountain views Europe has to offer.

Alternatively, let curiosity be your guide and explore independently following an extensive range of well-signed trails that start right at our doorstep. From steep, challenging walks to gentle strolls there is something to suit every taste, and with route cards, maps and local knowledge on hand you can be sure to find an adventure to suit you.

Or feel free to relax and unwind, stroll to a mountain hut for a few cold beers and take in the view before falling asleep in the sun - the choice is yours!

Guided Walks in the Slovenian Alps

On each hike Nejc, Žana or Luka will accompany you. We're all locals to Slovenia and speak excellent English too. We're here to provide you with a unique insight into the Slovene people, culture and way of life.

Some days the guided walks start from Pri Lenart, and on others, we'll travel in our air-conditioned minibus to visit beautiful trails a short distance away. Stunning, pristine countryside awaits you in one of the few areas of Europe where you can walk all day without visual or noise pollution. Enjoy peaceful, beautiful rolling hills and upland meadows that have remained unchanged for centuries.

Besides a profusion of beautiful and unusual flowers, especially in the month of May when many rare orchids appear, there are also lots of butterflies during the summer months. A wide range of wildlife lives in these hills including chamois, deer, martens, and numerous birds such as peregrines, nutcrackers, Alpine choughs and capercaillie. You can also expect to gain an understanding of the history of the area, which formed the Italian border between the wars and has many fascinating remnants of the old fortifications.

Some trails pass farms where you can taste local produce, and glimpse a traditional timeless way of life. During the day, where possible, we stop for refreshments at mountain huts or with friendly farmers, so you get a chance to meet local people, gain a feel for Slovenian culture and taste traditional Slovenian specialities.

Our Reviews

"I can honestly say I do not have a negative comment about Zana, Luka, Pri Lenart Hotel, all the staff, Slovenia or the walking adventures. From the friendliest welcome from Luka at the airport to saying a sad goodbye a week later to Zana and Luka we had the best time. Slovenia is an incredible country with the most amazing views, countryside, people and things to do. Pri Lenart Hotel was absolutely spotless, a first class retreat in the mountains, and the best hosts in Zana and Luka. The most delicious food from morning, to lunch, to afternoon tea to incredible dinner, everything explained and from different parts of the world. Zana also bent over backwards to accommodate different dietary requirements. The after dinner chats over a schnapps was one of my many favourite moments. Hot tub outside was marvellous after a days walking. My walking fitness was not quite up to par but Luka was so thoughtful in adapting walks for me and making me part of the group/ team. I could go on and on but must finish with a huge thank you to Zana, Luka and all the team for a magnificent holiday. Could not recommend Pri Lenart enough."

"We came with high expectations, but Luca & Jana took things to another level. Their care & attention to all their guests was first class, Jana’s meals were exceptional & Luca was such fun & entertained us all, both on our wonderful treks & during meals. Slovenia is a great country with stunning scenery- I can honestly say that this was one of our most memorable holidays & we will definitely be back- we cannot recommend both Slovenia & Luca’s & Jana’s hospitality high enough."

"We cannot praise Luka and Zana enough. To start with their hotel is quite beautifully restored and maintained. It is furnished to the highest standards, is spotlessly clean throughout and is in a great location within an authentic Slovenian farming village. Add to that the attention to detail by the hosts, whether it was in the planning and guiding all the walks or the quality of the catering, it was impossible to provide any criticism, constructive or otherwise. This is just a one off. They cannot do enough for you and only a visit will suffice."
