Triglav is synonymous with Slovenia. This iconic mountain, whose name translates to “Three Peaks” is at the center of the 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 is 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.
Slovenian, Italian and Hungarian are all official languages in Slovenia, though English is also widely spoken in the capital and in areas frequented by visitors, such as Triglav.
Triglav can be climbed all year round, though most choose to make their ascent during the warmer summer months. The end of June and early July is perhaps the most ideal time as the conditions are pleasant and the summer crowds have yet to arrive. Winter ascents are also possible for brave souls, but keep in mind that conditions may be harsh, particularly during January and February.
Summer is the "dry season" in Slovenia, running from June to October. During this time, the weather is pleasant and conditions are typically ideal for making your ascent on Triglav. In the winter months, expect chilly temperatures and keep in mind the conditions can sometimes be harsh on Triglav.
While it only takes two days to climb to the summit of Triglav and come back down again, we recommend spending some time in the surrounding Triglav National Park.
