The Julian Alps and Triglav National Park

Named after Triglav (2,864m), the mountain carrying a great symbolic weight for Slovenians, the Triglav National Park is one of the oldest parks in Europe. The first efforts to protect the area date back to 1906. The park spans nearly 84,000 hectares, almost the entire area of the Eastern Julian Alps. In addition to preserving the natural environment, which is the fundamental aim of any national park, the goals of the Triglav National Park are to preserve the exceptional natural and cultural values, exhibited in the crystalline waters, deep gorges, remnants of ancient forests, the rich Alpine flora, its characteristic fauna, as well as the singular cultural and historical heritage.

Special rule of behaviour must be observed in the park. Littering, picking flowers and lighting fires are strictly forbidden, while camping and parking are only allowed in the designated areas.

We hope that the paths you take in the Triglav National Park will leave you with lasting memories, and we encourage you to keep returning, to find new stories, just as exciting and unique as the first one.

Please respect the habitats of plants and animals. Do admire them, but make sure that your presence does not disturb their lives, as unique and magical as yours. Enjoy the clear starry nights on benches outside the organized mountain huts, lodges, shelters, and bivouacs which are set up for this purpose. Please note that camping or bivouacking outside of the designated areas is not permitted.

Hikers who do not opt for a tailor-made trek can join a guided tour of Triglav from one of these three Alpine valleys: from Bohinj ( 3-day trip); from Trenta (2-day trip); and from Krma (2-day trip). Please book by 12 am at least two days ahead at any TNP information point (info Triglavska roža Bled, + 386 4 578 02 05).
