What is the accommodation like?

Bohinj

On your first night, you'll stay in a twin-share room at a cosy 3-star hotel or apartment in the centre of Bohinj.

Upgrades

Single rooms are available on request.

The mountains

Your second night will be spent experiencing traditional Slovenian culture in a mountain hut. Built using the area's long-utilised methods, these huts are comfortable but have no hot water or electricity - the perfect chance to reconnect with nature and detox digitally.

Day 1

Bohinj

Meet your guides at Ljubljana Airport and drive to the delightful town of Bohinj. After checking into your accommodation you'll be left to your own devices until dinner, so spend the time exploring the village, unwinding in your room, taking a dip in the lake or grabbing a cold beer before sitting down to dinner and a chance to get to know your host and fellow travellers.

Day 2

Zajamniki

Wake to a Slovenian sunrise, pack your gear and head to Zajamniki, where you’ll be met by a roaring fire, some freshly brewed coffee and the sight of your mountain hut for the night. After lunch, take part in a workshop on landscape and architectural photography and then put your skills into action with a visit to Zajamnikihe town. After some serious ambling, stop for dinner and learn how to capitalise on contrasts and colour in time for sunset as well as extra skills like utilising lens flare. When ready, turn in for the night or try your hand at some night photography.

Day 3

Photograph Mt Triglav

Get up bright and early, grab your camera and photograph the orange-hued Mt. Triglav, Slovenia’s highest peak. Then it’s back to the hut for breakfast and some free time, before packing your bags and driving back to Bohinj. It's not over, however, as once there, you’ll have the chance to try Slovenian delicacies like Carniolan sausages and Žlikrofi (dumplings), finishing with a slice of Gibanica cake. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to sneak in some sauna time (entry fee not included) before heading back to the airport and home.

Please Note

All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
