Miaha and I spent several months – in a fun email trail – nutting out THE MOST EPIC adventure ever.
It's a lovingly crafted 33-page itinerary that opens with "Welcome to Slovenia. A country the shape of a chicken, 2 million happy citizens and lots of LOVE. It's in the name: sLOVEnia!"
Very sadly I suffered a health issue days before setting off and had to pull out of the hiking.
Miaha insisted I do the trip by car, experiencing the highlights and some of the mountain huts and Gostilna. Lake Bled to Mount Triglav
You climb up out of Lake Bled for three days through meadows and then up scree. I was to be kitted out with a helmet and harness for several stretches of Via Ferrata. The overnight stays are in basic mountain huts where food is helicoptered in. You reach the top of Mt Triglav, the highest mountain in Slovenia and festooned on the flag.Kranjska Gora and Soca River
Next follows several days of riding and hiking, and rafting, up and down through mountain ranges with waterfall stopoffs, meadow picnics and overnights stays in the most stunning huts and villages. You pass historic World War ll sites and chapels dripping in battle stories.
Miaha provides coordinates for lunch stops at stunning mountain huts where you get served big bowls of pork and cabbage soup and a homemade beer. Miaha uses his connections throughout the mountains to have bikes and rafts ready at various points. It all flows effortlessly.
If you're doing your own thing, a hike along the Soca Trail is really worth the visit. I did sections of it (I was kind of allowed to do small walks).
