Highlights

 
     

    Mt Triglav (2864 m) is Slovenia’s highest and most iconic peak. In this programme, I propose a challenging 1-day winter ascent.  

    During the summer season, climbing Triglav is an intermediate climb ideal for beginners or mountaineers with little experience. But things get tougher during the winter months, that go from November till the end of April.

    Winter ascents to Mt Triglav are considered a technical climb, that requires using crampons and an ice axe. Due to its higher level of difficulty, it’s important to have some previous experience.

    Besides, as this is a 1-day ascent, you need to be in excellent physical conditions. The whole ascent will demand between 9 and 12 hours.

    Are you ready for a winter mountaineering adventure? Then send a request to book this trip! 

    If you prefer a more relaxed winter ascent to this peak, you can choose this 2-day winter ascent to Triglav.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I’m a certified IFMGA mountain guide and canyoning guide living in the small and famous town of Bled, in Slovenia.

    I started rock climbing at the age of 5. From that time on, the mountains became my playground. During my childhood, I took part in many rock climbing competitions. When I was 12, my twin brother and I did our first multi-pitch climb on a 350 m wall.

    By the age of 16, I started competing in ice climbing world cups and later on skydiving junior world cups. In fact, in 2008 I became the world champion at the UIAA Ice Climbing Overall Ranking in speed ice climbing.

    I climbed in many different countries like Peru, South Korea, Switzerland, France and Italy. However, Slovenia is the place I like the most.

    Among other significant achievements, I did the first winter ascent (from the bottom of the wall) in Sphinx, the most difficult route in the mythical North Face of Mt Triglav. Besides, I got the first place for males at the IFMGA International mountain guide climbing championship in 2017.

    I like sharing moments with people, especially in mountains. Feel free to join me in the highest mountains, steepest walls and many other Alpine wonders. I’m flexible, so we can also research places in other countries worldwide. Deep canyons, emerald rivers, beautiful mountains, great people, a good laugh, you name it.

    I look forward to meeting you!

    Our guide was Mitja Drinavec (not Matevz Vukotic), he was very nice and responsible during the entire trip. Thank you for the great experience.

    That was not the guide, to begin with. It was a very very young woman. She was not very communicative, although she replied all the questions asked by the people seating in the front row. I, at the rear, have little opportunity to actually ear anything that it was said. Even less to ask myself The tour was not so bad but obviously some stops were far more interesting than others. What I found really annoying was the company of two people (clearly not customers) who shared the tour with us, speaking one another in their language as if they were alone in the van. Customers and friends (colleagues?) should be kept apart.

    Hi, We had a great climb with Matevz on the Hanz route - we knew we were in good hands and he kept a good pace and made sure we were taken care of on the way up. The climb was quite steep and a little scary but it helped knowing we were secured by a rope so an exhilirating day overall. We loved it!
