Description

Come with me on a 3-day journey to the highest point in both the Julian Alps and Slovenia, the summit of Triglav. Mount Triglav is a national treasure in Slovenia and it’s an awesome peak to climb.

Sitting tall at 2864 meters, climbing Triglav is an awesome physical challenge. It requires that we both hike and use via ferrata for the more exposed sections so you also get a varied climbing experience. During this trip, we’ll also rest in mountain huts overnight and you’ll get to experience Slovenian Alpine culture.

We’ll begin our experience in the beautiful Vrata Valley which sits at the base of the North face of Triglav. From there, we’ll start our journey to our first hut.

The second day will involve a solid five or six hours of climbing and you’ll make good ground that day. The final day will see us rising before the sun so that we can make good time to the summit. To take on some of the more exposed sections near the top, we’ll take a via ferrata route.

We’ll spend a little bit of time at the summit enjoy the stunning views of the High Tauren and the Adriatic Sea. Then, we will start to descent. The views from the top are spectacular, but what will really stay with you is the sense of accomplishment you get from reaching the top.

Get in touch today and start planning your ultimate Slovenian experience to the summit of Triglav.

And, if you’d like to work on your mountaineering and via ferrata skills, while you’re in Slovenia, be sure to check out my three-day course in the Logarska Valley in the north of the country.

Itinerary

Day 1: Day One

On the first day, we’ll meet at the base of the mountain and get to know one another.

Day 2: Day Two

Day two will be all about reaching Krederica Hut which sits at 2562 meters. This will take us around 5-6 hours. Once we are settled in the hut, I’ll give you a short training course on via ferrata- you’ll need it for the next day.

Day 3: Day three

We’ll rise bright and early for our final push to the summit. It’s here that you’ll get to put into practice everything you learned about via ferrata the day before. When we reach the top, we’ll take some time for photos and to admire the sites before we descend.

About the guide

The first time I experienced being in the mountains, I felt like I was floating between reality and dreams.

Endless snow slopes, steep rock faces... I’m passionate about them and I still find them mysterious and enigmatic, always exciting, never the same.

I’ve been on eight expeditions to South America and reached the top of more than 30 peaks over 6000 meters. I also climbed Aconcagua’s south face three times.

Besides, I went on several expeditions to the Himalayas, including Mt Everest.

Some places will always feel like home to me, like the mountains of Huaraz, Kathmandu, Chamonix and the ones in my own country, Slovenia.

If I am not there to guide you then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Danilo, can take care of you! I will let you know in any case.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
