Never underestimate extreme and unpredictable mountain weather. Come prepared for any weather conditions. Keep in mind that you will spend your days high in the mountains. Even in the hottest summer days, the weather in the mountains can change quickly. Thunderstorms are relatively common in July and August. They develop rather quickly, but usually build up in the late afternoons and evenings, so it is best to start hikes early in the morning.
The climbing season for hiking in the high Julian Alps is from July through September. Summer weather in the mountains is quite cool; when it’s pushing 30°C on the Slovenian plains, it may be just 10°C above 2000 meters. It often drops below freezing at night, and snow may persist in nooks and crannies throughout the year. Weather on the mountain is highly variable, bringing unexpected wind, rain, and even snow.
Suggested packing list:
- Boots or shoes suited to the terrain
- Rainwear (jacket and pants in case of bad weather)
- Lightweight fleece or jacket for the summer, warm clothes during the winter
- Water container or proper bottle
- Sun protection: sunglasses, sun-protective clothes and sunscreen
- Personal Shampoo (for specific hair type)
- Pain Killer (headache or stomach ache)
- Personal Care Objects
- Camera for the beautiful memories :)
Appropriate footwear is an essential part of any hiking tour. There are a variety of models on the market designed to meet the needs of different types of hikers; the challenge is finding the one that works best for your purposes. You will often hike on rocky or uneven terrain that calls for a stiff boot with a higher cuff for ankle protection, for both preventing sprained ankles and blocking stony blows to the side of your foot.
Choose hiking boots that have good ankle support and are well protective on a rocky terrain. Hiking boots are typically heavier and have stiffer soles and sides as well as a reinforced, protected toe area. Those kinds of boots take time to break in. You should not go on multi-day trekking with brand new boots!! Before you hit the trail, make sure to break them in properly, to avoid serious blisters and other unnecessary pain.
