FAQs: Mountain Climbing in Slovenia

What should I know about Mountain Climbing Bohinj?

The Bohinj valleys sits at the foot of the surrounding Julian Alps. As a result, mountain climbing is a prime attraction during the summer and autumn.

Outside of Mt Triglav, the area boasts plenty of other incredible climbs as well. Among them is Prisank (2,547 meters), which is a great intermediate-level peak for people interested in climbing pristine limestone. Views from the top are great too and on the way down climbers have the option of hiking or heading down on a via ferrata.

Other good peaks for intermediate climbers include Vršaki, Vernar and Mali Draški vrh. For novice mountaineers, heading up Plaski Vogel, Veliko Špičje and Mišeljski konec are great ways to get some experience while enjoying the area’s incredible beauty.

Why should I choose Bohinj for my Mountain Climbing adventure?

Stunning scenery

The Bohinj Valley is home to some of Slovenia’s immense beauty. Green fields and forested foothills lead up to the imposing snow-capped Julian Alps. The best way to see all of this immense natural beauty is to head up to the summit of one of these alpine peaks and spend a few hours gazing back down over it. Slovenia might be one of Europe’s best kept secrets and with views like the ones you’ll find in Bohinj, you’ll see why.

Triglav National Park

Triglav National Park is centered around Mt Triglav (2,864 meters), the highest peak in Slovenia as well as the Julain Alps. The park is filled with incredibly scenic forests, valleys and lakes surrounded by stunning mountain sides that are just waiting to be climbed. Heading to the summit of the park’s namesake is the perfect challenge for intermediate climbers and provides a bit of culture as well as stunning views.

Come for the culture

When you are not out in the mountains, enjoy some of the area’s unique and incredible culture. From sampling different wines at local vineyards to checking out small and remote villages there is a lot to experience here. While you’re here also take the time to visit the Tomaz Godec museum to learn about Slovenia’s role in the First World War as well as see what life was like in this part of the world prior to the dawn of modernity.

What people are saying about Mountain Climbing |



A really excellent service provided by Mitja, who sourced the fantastic mountain guide Peter Jeromel. Both provided superb advice and we were able to create a challenging but achievable climb of Triglav in winter conditions.



We had an amazing time. Our guide gave us many information about the regions flora and fauna. Even though the sight at the very top wasn't so good this day, the climb up was vey exciting. Thanks a lot.



Great experience and great professional guide.



We can’t say enough great things about this trek. Mitja, our guide, was incredible, we would not have made it up without him. The whole experience was beyond expectations. I would wholeheartedly recommend this trek to others. Thank you for helping to make our trip so memorable!



Vi havde Igor Kremser som guide. Han var meget kompetent, vidende og havde et godt humør. Både voksne og vores 2 teenagere ville vælge Igor igen til enhver tid som vores guide. Turen op på Triglav er spændene, tilpas hård og overnatningen i hytten er en oplevelse værd. Vi er glade for, at vi havde købt de ting som stod på listen vi fik tilsendt. Specielt gode støvler, vandrestave, handsker og en god rygsæk anbefales. Der står i beskrivelsen, at Igor er aspirant - tag ikke fejl han er yderst professionel og en hyggelig fyr, at tilbringe et par dage med. Vi satte stor pris på, at han hentede os i Kranjska Gora i sin bil. Vi havde overvejer om en guide var nødvendig... det gør oplevelsen meget bedre og større . Tag en tur på Triglav med Igor - du vil ikke fortryde det
