Highlights

 
     

    This 2-day Triglav winter ascent is an amazing experience that will take you to the summit of an iconic peak enjoying the winter solitude. 

    Mount Triglav (2863 m) is located in the Julian Alps and it’s the highest peak in Slovenia. It is the main attraction of the Triglav National Park and, even more, it’s an emblematic symbol of the Slovene Nation.

    So, during summer lots of people from all over the world come to climb it and enjoy the wonderful views from its summit. But when winter arrives, the path gets much more lonely and you can climb it avoiding the crowds and appreciating nature at its best.

    It’s a much bigger challenge because snow complicates the way up, but with my help it will be much easier and safer, so you can do it even if you don’t have a lot of experience.

    My plan is to start on the parking lot of the Krma Valley and on the first day go all the way to the Triglav Lodge at Kredarica. This amazing  mountain hut is the highest in the country and has amazing views of the surroundings.

    Then on the second day we’ll start early to reach the summit and have extra time to relax and then descend to the parking lot again.

    So don’t hesitate and send me a request to make this amazing 2-day winter ascent to the iconic Mount Trigal happen for you!

    About the Guide

     
     

    I was born in Kranj (Slovenia), and since I was a child the mountains have been my passion. I graduated in Sports at Ljubljana University and started an alpine career as a member of the Kranj Alpine Club.

    In 1977, I climbed my first eight-thousander: it was a new route on Gasherbrum I. Some years later, a partner and I became the first Slovenians to ascend Mt Everest, also on a new route.

    In fact, I’ve been at the top of Everest twice. The second time, I reached the summit with my wife Marija, and we were the first married couple achieving that.

    Throughout my alpine career, I took part and even lead more than 20 expeditions in the Nepalese Himalayas. There, I climbed more than six peaks over eight thousand meters: two of them on new routes and three using pure alpine style. I also climbed in Patagonia, Pamir, USA, Caucasus and Scotland.

    However, my major success was climbing a new route on Kangchenjunga, in alpine style and together with climber Marko Prezelj. After this, we won the prestigious mountaineering award Piolet d’Or.

    I am a mountain guide since 1982 and I obtained my IFMGA license in 1997. I am also an instructor at the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association (SMGA).

    I still live in Kranj with my wife and the youngest of our three children.
