Description

Mount Triglav (2864m) is the highest peak in Slovenia, and the most popular climb in the country, with several routes to the summit. Today we invite you to join us on a 3-day group ascent via the Valley of the Seven Lakes.

This is the longest route, but probably the most beautiful and diverse approach to Triglav. Along three days, we will cover a distance of over 40 kilometers and a height difference of more than 2500 meters.

During these days, we will be sleeping in small mountain huts which offer simple accommodation and typical Slovenian food, enjoying spectacular views over valleys, mountains and lakes.

On the first day, we will drive up to the trail start, high above Bohinj Lake, on Blato meadow. It is also possible to start the ascent lower in the valley, but driving up allow us to cover some altitude difference by car, a great help on this long trek. Also, it gives us the opportunity of enjoying much better scenery.

Then we will hike along the Seven Lakes trail, over beautiful alpine meadows. We will have lunch at a hut and go on hiking up the valley, enjoying amazing views, until we reach the Zasavska koca na Prehodavcih hut, where we will stay overnight.On the second day, we will continue the hike over beautiful landscapes, and stay at the Vodnikov dom hut.

Following an old military trail for about an hour, we will reach a via ferrata. From the hut, it take us about 3 hours to reach the summit of Mount Triglav. We descend to the Planika Hut, crossing down alpine meadows and get back to our car from there. The descend takes about 7 hours from the top of the mountain.

This group tour is a great opportunity for single climbers or for climbers who are part of a small group. The climb will start each Monday and finish on Wednesday, from end of June until the end of September.

Just send us a request if you want to join us on this group ascent to the most famous mountain in Slovenia. You may also be interested in a private climbing tour in Triglav. In that case we can offer you these climbing options.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am a UIAGM mountain guide, ski instructor and sports teacher and the current president of the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association.

I am still the only guide who can make a living working exclusively in Slovenia. I climb Triglav more than 25 times per year, which means I have climbed the most famous peak in my country over 200 times.

If you want to climb or ski in Slovenian mountains I am the right choice. I guide via ferrata, rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, hikes, heliski, freeride skiing and ski touring.

Slovenia has good options for all of these activities, so you are welcome to take a look at my trips and find something for yourself. If you don't find anything let me know and I will see if I can help you!

I speak English. Ich sprache auch ein bischen Deutsch. Parla anche un pocho Italiano e abla tambien un po Espanol.

If I am not available to guide you, one of the super experienced guides in my team - Rok, Peter, Grega or Igor - will be your guide.
