Mitja Šorn and his group of certified guides will take you on an exciting 2-day climbing trip to the summit of Mount Triglav, leaving from Krma Valley.

Private and Group


2 Days

All year




I guide the ascent on Mont Triglav (2864 m), the highest peak in Slovenia, from different routes. Here is the program I propose for the one leaving from the Krma valley, the easiest way to get to the summit.

We start and finish the hike at the same point, in the Krma valley. We will sleep in Triglavski dom. From there, we'll go to the top and we can descend the way to Planika hut. That way, we make a small circle.

In addition, there is via ferrata from the hut to the summit of Mount Triglav and back.

You can do this route in one day, but only if you are a super fit person (usually it takes from 12-16 hours). However, I recommend to do it in two days. That way, you can really enjoy the hike as well as admire the beautiful landscapes.

Below this description, you'll find an itinerary for the 2-day trip.

If you are interested in climbing the most famous peak in Slovenia, please get in touch with me. We can discuss together the most suitable option for you!

Besides, I organize many other trips in the surroundings of Mont Triglav, like ski touring, rock climbing and ice climbing.

Price includes

- Guiding fee

- Transport during the trip

- Harness

- Helmet

Price details

This price is for a group tour that can be done twice a week, on Sundays/Mondays and Wednesdays/Thursdays. Price includes guiding, equipment rental, guides costs and if you don't have a car in Slovenia also transport from Bohinj, Bled, Kranjska Gora or anywhere close. There is an additional cost of cca 65€ per person for food, drinks, and sleeping in the mountain hut.

A minimum of 2 participants is required for this trip to take place.


Day 1: Krma Valley - Triglavski dom

The route to the Triglavski dom has an extension of 7,3 kilometers and we will face a height difference of 1500 meters. It usually takes us around 5 hours to reach the hut. On the way, we will find a water spring, so you only need to bring a water bottle of 1 or 1,5 litres and snacks.

Day 2: Triglavski dom - Summit! - Krma Valley

From the hut, we will need to ascend another 400 meters. Due to the exposed terrain (via ferrata), the ascent and descent will take us around 3-4 hours from the hut (Triglavski dom) to the top and back, plus 4 hours down to the valley.

If weather allows it, we will go for the summit on day 1 and descend to the valley on day 2

About the guide

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.

Mitja was fantastic!!! Very proffesional and obviously very knowlegeable in the area and the climb. He was very patient with me being a beginner in climbing and helpful when I was having difficulty in parts of the track. I feel like we could not have chosen a better guide. A great guy as well. We did have a little issue with the start time/date of our hike. I’m not sure if that was to do with the timezone in the southern hemisphere when we booked our climb. Thanks for the unforgettable experience. Mary and Mick

We had a brilliant trip with Mitja climbing Triglav. He is a fantastic guide - extremely knowledgeable about Triglav and the best way to climb it. We did the whole ascent in one day, stopping at the hut for a few hours to have lunch while it rained. We then summitted in the late afternoon where the clouds cleared and we had a beautiful view. We hiked back down from the hut the next day after a lovely evening in the hut. It was a great time of year to go - less crowds and enjoyed hiking in the snow. We thoroughly recommend doing the trip with Mitja or his team, he is very experienced, friendly, considerate and made our trip even better than we had hoped. Thank you again!
