Mount Triglav, Slovenia

Acending Mt Triglav, Slovenia
With verdant turfed fields, rolling hills, and the summit of Mount Triglav erupting over the horizon, Slovenia’s rural charm beckons travellers from across the globe. A weekend is ample time to navigate your way to the heart of the impressive Julian Alps.  Admire the picturesque Lake Bled where you can spy a 17th century Gothic church, proudly perched on a tiny island in the centre of blue waters. Walk through wild mountain National Parks and seize the chance to stay in a rustic traditional mountain hut, before ascending the silver snow dusted peaks of Slovenia’s highest summit. What a glorious way to spend a weekend.

Mount Toubkal, Morocco 


Standing 4167m above sea level Mount Toubkal delivers panoramic views of the rusty tops of the High Atlas Mountains. It might seem surprising but in just three days you can approach, summit and descend the highest peak in North Africa. Glimpse into the lives of hardy and friendly locals as you pass through a Berber village nestled on the mountainside. With a rich cultural history that dates back over 4000 years, Berber hospitality is outstanding. After an energetic trek you’re free to explore Marrakech, jammed with stalls selling intricately patterned interiors and piled high with fragrant and striking spices, this bustling city is bursting with ambience.

Trolltunga, Norway


Don your crampons and walk across the third largest glacier on mainland Norway, the Folgefonna. Two full days of trekking allows you to really experience the majesty of this destination and takes you to one of the most spectacular scenes in the world. The iconic Trolltunga, meaning ‘troll’s tongue’, is a vertiginous ledge of rock that juts horizontally out of the mountain face. A wonderous 700 metres above the fjords below, you can venture over the cliff face for a jaw-dropping photo opportunity in the clouds, or simply marvel at the beauty of this quintessentially Nordic terrain. Heart-stopping and moving, Norway’s serrated coastline promises arresting icy views. Before the weekend’s up, return to Rosendal to relax and reminisce.
