All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
For the trek, you will be staying in Kredarica mountain hut on the slopes of Mount Triglav. The hut is basic but comfortable, with dormitory-style bunks, electricity, water, central heating, and a restaurant serving a range of foods.
