    The amazing Triglav, in the Julian Alps, is the highest mountain in Slovenia. With its 2,864 m of altitude, this mighty mountain at the heart of the Triglav National Park is the symbol of Slovenia. Join me for a 2-day ascent program in the beautiful Slovenian winter.

    When winter comes to Triglav, the image is completely different from that during the summer. It becomes deserted, in the best sense of the word. During 2 days, I will guide on our way up this fantastic mountain almost to ourselves. Primordial and simply fantastic!

    To begin this program, I will meet at your accommodation in Kranjska Gora or Bled. We will then transfer to the Krma Valley (980 m). This is where our mountaineering traverse begins, and where it will conclude too. For the night, we will sleep in the traditional Triglavski dom-Kredarica hut (2,515 m).

    Day 1 consists of the ascent from Krma Valley to the hut, which takes between 6 and 8 hours, and an ascent of 1,500 m.

    Day 2 will be summit day. We will leave the hut in the morning to aim for the Triglav summit (2,864 m). The ascent takes between 4 and 6 hours. Later, the descent requires another 4 to 6 hours back to the Krma valley.

    In addition, there is via ferrata from the hut to the summit of Mount Triglav and back but in winter time is mostly covered by the snow.

    This program is available from the beginning of November until May. The total traverse takes between 16 and 18 hours total, and involves around 2,000 m in height difference.

    For this program, I will take groups of up to 2 mountaineers.

    The basic equipment you will need includes: appropriate mountain clothes and shoes, helmet, climbing harness, axe, crampons, backpack, 2x locking carabiner, sling 120cm.

    I will provide technical equipment. Plus, I will give you a more complete list of all winter equipment before the beginning of the tour.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I am an aspirant iFMGA mountain guide born in 1980 in Mojstrana, a Slovenian village close to Mount Triglav, the highest mountain in the country at 2864 m.

    From an early age, my parents took me to the mountains during summer and winter. At that time, my father was part of a mountain rescue team in my hometown and was also going on expeditions to the Himalaya and the Andes, so he became a big inspiration for me. We went climbing, hiking, sport climbing and ski touring together. His enthusiasm truly influenced me.

    I went to Alpine school, then Mountain rescue team, I did the Alpinist exam and I became an Alpinist instructor. After that, I also studied to be a professor of Sport. Several years later, I decided to begin my mountain guide education and to become an IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide.

    Loved Slovenia and would highly recommend for those who enjoy the outdoors and walking. The via ferrata route was great for a morning hike. Stunning views and not too hard which was good given the heat that day. Our guide Borut (replaced by Gregor at the last minute as I had misjudged our dates so very much appreciated it) was lovely and made our trip even better.
