You can either fly into Trieste Airport in Italy (81 miles from Ljubljana) and rent a Goopti transfer or arrange for some other transfer to Ljubljana or fly directly to the Ljubljana Airport (LJU) which is 16 miles from the city center. There are also regular shuttle bus connections to the city.
You'll spend 5 nights in family run 3-4 star hotels/guesthouse (two people sharing a twin/double room), with private facilities. The other 2 nights will be spent in mountain huts which room 4, 6, or 10 people. These are dormitory-style with shared facilities.
Rates quoted are per person, based on sharing double accommodations. If you are a solo traveler and would like to request single accommodations, you can pay a single supplement fee of €240 (approx. $270). If you wish to share accommodations, Cook Eat Slovenia will assign you a roommate of the same gender if one is available. Please be advised that there are a limited number of single rooms available. Single rooms are not available at the mountain huts.
