Tips/Advice to do Wild Camping in Slovenia if that is Possible?

My friend and I will be travelling in and around Slovenia for a while, bringing a tent and hoping to do some wild camping. It the first time for both of us (in a country where it’s not explicitly legal) and any tips on do’s and don’ts, good locations and the like is very welcome. We’d also love to hear of nice places to go in general!

We’ll be heading for Ljubljana firstly, then perhaps Triglav and Bled. We know that these areas are quite touristy, so we’d love to know of cheap alternatives to wild camping as well if this is less of an option here.

    Bovec is a good place to visit too, the trails there are fantastic, I found the trail to the source of the Soca pretty interesting.

      Cool, thank you! Is the trail to the source of Sovec located near Bovec?

        0

        Yup, the source of the Soča Valley, is part of the Soča trail that is 25 km long. It starts from the source and ends at Bovec. The direction and length of the trail can be adapted according to your need. There are a lot of interesting points along the trail, connected to the Soča river, as the trail runs along the river. If you decide not to do the entire trail, you can hitchhike your way back to Bovec from the middle.

    I wild camped in Triglav Park and it was fine. Many nice spots with water! Bled Region is more difficult I think. B/w there are also very cheap campings if you look a bit around. I paid 6 euros per night for a camping close to a village called Mojstrana.

      Mojstrana I believe yes.
      Camping in Triglav national park is illegal but late night setting and early morning leaving are ok.

        You are right! Thanks for correcting me. And indeed I always put my tent late and pack up early. I loved Triglav National Park btw!!! (Have seen almost the whole Austrian and Swiss Alps, but the Slovenian Alps are probably my favorite!)

          Thanks for the advice! We might try wild camping in Triglav if we find a good, hidden spot. Oh, and could the camping spot that you’re talking of being Camping Kamen? Or is Mojstrana the name?

            0

            Yes, that is the Camping Kamen, I was there for a few days before going into Triglav National Park though it was raining with huge thunderstorms and didn’t feel safe wild camping in the mountains, with people. It is some years ago tough, prices might be increased.

              I found the website, and for pedestrians with small tents, the prices are about 6 €, which definitely is affordable. Thanks a lot for the tip, it seems like a really nice place!

    For sure Koper, Piran, and visit secret beach in Strunjan.

      Wow, it looks nice! Hah, secret beach. Will we be able to find it or do you have any location on a map? 🙂

        0

        Yea of course. Just take a bus from Koper to Srunjan and approx after 20 minutes of walking you will get there… you need to go first up to the hill on the top is cross and from there you will see it 😉

    Alternative for Bled could be Bohinj and since you re camping, explore Soča river (around Soča, Tolmin)

      Thank you, Olaf! A friend of mine also recommended Soča river strongly, it seems like I will have to go there.
