Free yourself from the worry of calculating when you have to turn back and go on a hut-to-hut trek instead. Enjoy more time immersed in nature and reap the wonderful benefits that this choice provides.
Hut-to-hut hiking involves walking for several days from one hut or lodge to the next. This type of hiking allows you to cover more ground and see much more of wherever you are visiting than traditional day hikes would. Depending on your itinerary or preferences these hikes might be large loops through an area or have different starting and finishing points. Either way it is important to be physically fit for this activity prior to booking as it often requires several consecutive hours of walking uphill with minimal breaks. Hiring a certified mountain-guide will ensure you travel the most scenic and safest routes in the area of your choice.
Well planned and brilliant communication before had, Mitja would reply to emails quickly and would answer any questions that we had. The walk was fantastic, deffinatly a challenge.
The trip was awesome. Anastasiya organised for us a great mountaineering course in the Ala Archa Valley. All went super fine.
Climbing Mt. Triglav with Mitja and Roks was a truly enjoyable experience for me that I would cherish forever. They are extremely organized, helpful and full of humor that made the difficult journey to the top so easy. Even though I was the slowest in the group, they made sure that I reach safely to the destination and enjoy the trek thoroughly. Mitja’s repeated advice on being relaxed and not to think much over the hurdles on the path while trekking was one of the valuable takeaways. And I thank them thousand times for offering such a memorable trip in Triglav. For those who are thinking of climbing Mt. Triglav, I can reccommend Mitja and Roks anytime as guides to have a safe and comfortable journey.
Peaks Hunters were brilliant from the point of first contact. They took care of every last detail from planning the trip to providing all the mountaineering equipment. On the mountain our guides were amazing. Positive, confident, good company and with safety always at the fore front. They set the pace and made sure as many of our group as possible hit the summit. Thank you so much to the Silvia, Elis and the team. Will definitely be using you again
Mitja is a well qualified expert guide, jbut more than that, he’s a good people-person and risk manager. While he’s introducing you to the countryside during the steadily incling walk up the former glacier/Kemal valley, he’s also assessing each of the groups’ strengths and weaknesses, forming sub-groups based on the optimal mix and the weather conditions. Even though he does this twice a week in Summer, you can tell he loves his work and interacting with people. The when we’ve arrived at the 2000m hut, he switches into safety, security and risk manager mode behind the scenes to ensure the final 800m via-feratta ascent to the summit goes without a hitch and to ensure each ‘guest’ gets maximum outcomes. To do this he uses a team of guides (Rok, Igor, etc) who take 3/4 guests and rope you together for the final climb up Triglav. I have to say, while I have a fear of heights (yet I’ve parachuted and abseiled/respelled) and my butterflies and toes were tingling all the way up, I felt very safe and secure throughout. My grand daughter was also born that day so I yelled a welcome to the world message off the top of Triglav for her. What a great day on many levels. Thx Mitja and team
Really nice experience
Our guides Danijela and Ferdo were fantastic! We learned a lot of great tips from them on climbing technique. They always kept safety first and were a lot of fun. We couldn’t have asked for better guides and would highly recommend them to anyone. Climbing in the park was awesome.
Leaving climbing Mt Triglav until late 50s and my nervousness about heights are both understatements. However at all times with Mitja and his crew of expert full-time guides (Rok, Igor and another) I felt in highly experienced, safe and capable hands. We had perfect weather so walked to top hut near Triglav and summitted in one day. It was challenging, scary and highly rewarding. I was in a mixed age and abilities group of 13, some of whom were ill-prepared mentally (some delusional that they were going out for an easy two day Hill walk) and physically. But all made it to the top easily and triumphantly. Well done Mitja and guide crew. Thanks Ash
It was the first day with “autumn weather “ since summer started. Mitja tried his best to make the right decision for us about when to go to the summit. We went the first day, unfortunately without a view from the summit but it was a good decision as the next day was very windy and freezing cold.
Gloves, hat, poles were provided by Mitja. He us on a different way back so we would still have a great view almost similar to the one on the top, this route was amazing! Thanks Mitja It was super!
The trip was excellent. We met the owner of Peak Hunters and next time would preferably like to travel with him. You all saved us and our trip and we are forever in your debt. We are already excited to book next years with you guys.
We only have really glowing things to say about the trip and our guides. They were a lot of fun, and extremely knowledgeable. They adjusted the plan as we went to pick routes we’d like the best and had great feedback on continuing improvement.
The trip was great, the guide the programme the team everything. Except for 1 thing: the clothes recommended in the list of equipment was too hot for that season i felt like.
Great experience with very knowledgeable and friendly guides. Great atmosphere.
This was a fantastic trip from start to finish. Lupe and Guy helped in the pre-climb planning, and Guy is a very knowledgeable guide, and is thorough in planning. I can hardly wait to go again.
Pack light but for all the elements
Mitja provides all the technical kit
Paklencia is a beautiful area to climb and Danijela was very knowledgeable and fun to climb with. I would definitely come back again!
We had a fantastic experience climbing Triglav via the Blato Meadow, the seven lakes valley and back. We got the best of both worlds, hiking on our own to the Dolic Hut and back from the Planika hut, meant we could enjoy the scenery and wildlife at our own pace. But meeting Marco and having his expertise, harnesses, helmets and advice for the via farrata, ascent and descent of Triglav, was fantastic. We definitely felt safe and in good hands.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
