​Location

Slovenia is a gorgeous hidden gem of Europe, with a population of 2 million. The Triglav National Park extends along the Italian border and close to the Austrian border in the north-west of Slovenia, that is, in the south-eastern section of the Alps.

The park was named after Triglav, the highest mountain in the heart of the park, which is also the highest summit in Slovenia (2864 m).

The park covers 840 square kilometres, and it is one of the oldest European parks; the first protection dates back to 1924 when the Alpine Conservation Park was founded.

The beautiful emerald Soča river, which flows at the foot of the Julian Alps, by the Italian border has carved an exhilarating valley at an elevation of 876 metres and has some of the most gorgeous waters in Europe.

Your health and wellbeing are extremely important to us! You will enjoy three meals per day, composed of healthy, fresh seasonal, organic vegetarian, or vegan or raw food along with freshly prepared healthy, homemade raw snack delights, detox juices, and evening herbal tea.
