FAQs: Mountain Climbing in Slovenia

What should I know about Mountain Climbing Slovenia?

Triglav is synonymous with Slovenia. This iconic mountain is at the center of Slovene culture and history. Climbing to its summit is as much a cultural experience as a physical one. A former Slovene president even believed it was the duty of each citizen to climb Triglav at least once in their lifetime. If you are in Slovenia, you simply must visit the Triglav National Park and stand atop its most acclaimed peak. Getting there is easy with public transportation, and you only need two days to climb to the top of Slovenia’s highest mountain.

Why should I choose Slovenia for my Mountain Climbing adventure?


A former Slovene president once proclaimed that it is the duty of each citizen to climb Triglav at least once in their lifetime. In addition to being the highest peak in Slovenia and the surrounding Julian Alps, Triglav is an important peak in Slovenia's history.


Unlike some mountaineering destinations, Triglav is very accessible. If you have an intermediate level of physical fitness and the desire to climb, you can reach the Triglav summit in just 2 days. If you are fit and more experienced, you can go up and down in a single day. Winter climbing options are also available to those willing to brave the elements as Triglav is open to climbers all year round.


Triglav, which translates to "Three Peaks," is located within the national park by the same name. Triglav National Park is Slovenia's only national park and a favorite among outdoor lovers.

Triglav can be climbed all year round, though most choose to make their ascent during the warmer summer months.

What people are saying about Mountain Climbing | Triglav



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.



Mitja, Marko and luka were on their game and adapted to a varied group. I feel they delivered excellent value for money and wouldn't hesitate to book their services again in the julian alps or dolomites. Ben Hooper- Australia.



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.



Booking the guide was a simple process. Having a guide on the mountain climb and experiencing the mountains in those conditions was the highlight of the trip. I would recommend to anyone going to Slovenia. Thanks.



Mitja was an amazing Guide,so glad my son and I chose him to do this winter climb. Mitja has so much knowledge about the climb and his expertise is valuable. We felt safe at all times and Mitja continuously provided encouragement and advice. Would recommend Mitja to anyone looking for a guide
