Recommendations for hikers
Visitors are drawn by the park’s mountain summits, wild gorges, rich flora, cultural landscape with mountain pastures, and charming villages with diverse cultural heritage.
Exploring the nature, cultural landscape and meeting the people of the park is an outstanding experience, but we need to remember that we are only guests in this fragile environment.
- May the paths you take in Triglav National Park leave you with lasting memories. Tailor the route to your ability.
- Please leave your vehicle in one of the many designated car parks.
- Whenever possible, use public transport or travel by bike or on foot.
- Stay on the trails. Keep your noise level down and avoid disturbing the animals.
- Dogs should be kept on a leash.
- As mountain bikers who have a positive attitude to nature and respect other users of mountains trails, please keep to the roads and designated trails outside the natural environment.
- Drones are a source of disturbance for animals and other visitors and should be left at home. For a bird’s eye view, hike a trail to one of many panoramic summits. Use of drones is not allowed.
- Respect the plants and animals. Admire them, but make sure your presence does not disturb their lives, which are as unique as ours.
- If you are tempted to take a swim in a high-altitude lake, please think of all the consequences your actions will have for the fragile and highly sensitive habitat of the mountain lake and its surroundings. Instead, cool off at one of the bathing areas in the valley, and, in so doing, help to preserve these mountainous water pearls. Bathing in high-altitude lakes is not allowed.
- Enjoy clear starry nights from a bench outside the mountain huts and lodges, shelters and bivouacs. Camping or bivouacking outside designated areas is not permitted
- Caravans, campers and campervans may be parked overnight at designated car parks and campsites that provide all the necessary facilities.
Be considerate visitors who bring nothing to the natural environment and take nothing from it. Nothing, except what is stored in your hearts or on your memory sticks.
