Description

Mount Triglav is the highest mountain in Slovenia and as such it deserves its own program. It’s a very popular place in my country. The mountain which you have to climb at least once in your life.

I recommend 4 options to ascent it. Each one is different as Triglav is huge. If you start from the Vrata valley you have to climb on via ferrata, if you start from Bohinj you will hike through the woods.

However to climb to the top you have to deal with 400 height meters of exposed via ferrata (path equipped with wires and pitons) whatever the way you choose. If you decide to do it with me you will for sure be in good hands. I use the rope on via ferrata, so you will always have a double security.

It’s a unique opportunity for you to climb it together with a local IFMGA mountain guide ūüėČ

SUMMER SPECIAL

From late June until late September, I plan a guided climb of Mount Triglav each Wednesday / Thursday and Sunday / Monday.

I am an IFMGA mountain guide, which gives you more safety. Unfortunately, you should now some agencies in Slovenia work with unlicensed guides. Usually they are students and have no guiding experience at all.

Please note that the program may vary depending on the weather. We will decide the ideal time to ascend to the top of Mount Triglav. It will be either on Monday afternoon or on Tuesday morning.

There are around 2000 m of ascent and descent, which should take us around 12-18 hours during two days. Be prepared to start the adventure at 7AM on Monday and finish at 4PM on Tuesday. Of course the time of departure and return is not fixed, it may vary depending on the weather conditions. but it will stay around this schedule.
