What should I know about Mountain Climbing Slovenia?
Located in the northwest of Slovenia along the border with Italy, the municipality of Bovec is covered in the high mountains of the Julian Alps. It is home to a number of important valleys such as the Trenta Valley, Soča Valley and Resia Valley. Large chunks of the north of Bovec is held within the Triglav National Park, which protects the pristine area around Mount Triglav, the highest mountain in Slovenia.
Why should I choose Slovenia for my Mountain Climbing adventure?
Resting within the Triglav National Park, parts of Bovec offer pristine landscapes, frosty mountain peaks and inspirational valleys. It is the only national park in the whole of Slovenia, where the southeastern stretches of the Alps stand. The king of the mountains here is Mount Triglav, which at 2,863 meters above sea level, is the highest peak in the country.
The Triglav National Park is blanketed in vibrant colours. Yellow hawksbeards, blood-red Julian poppies, and silver-leaved Cranesbills offer depth to the rolling green meadows and forest. Iconic animals in the park include the large-horned alpine ibex, the chamois, the red deer, the brown bear and the lynx. Bovec is packed full of vibrant life and wonder.

Today, Italy lies to the west, Croatia to the south, Hungary to the east and Austria to the north.

Blaz was an absolutely amazing guide. I cannot overstate how memorable he made the trip and how kind he was to me and my friends. Whether he was soothing our nerves during a particularly steep part of the climb or telling us vibrant stories about Slovenian history, Blaz exceeded all of our expectations tenfold. I highly recommend Blaz’s trip up Triglav and I hope to return sometime soon and do another adventure with him !
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
