I will guide you to the winter tours at the location of the Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park. Since the mountain huts are mostly closed in the winter, I chose for you a mountain hut on the Vršič pass, which is also open in the winter. From there, we will head out into the field every day. The selection of winter tours in this area is very large. Depending on the snow conditions, I will choose a destination that is attractive and not dangerous for avalanches.
