Type of Trip
Mount Triglav (2864m) is the highest mountain in Slovenia and, as such, deserves its own program. It’s a very popular place in my country. This is a mountain that you have to climb at least once in your life. I’m here to help you do it!
My group tours are a great opportunity for single climbers or for climbers who are part of a small group. These group outings run on Sundays/Mondays and Wednesdays/Thursdays from June 20th till the end of September (if you can’t leave on these dates, you can hire me for a private ascent).
I am an IFMGA mountain guide, which gives you additional safety. Unfortunately, you should know some agencies in Slovenia work with unlicensed guides. They are usually students and have no guiding experience at all.
As part of these groups, you’ll climb Triglav via Krma Valley, the easiest way to the summit. There are around 2000m of ascent and descent, which should take us around 12-18 hours over two days. Be prepared to start the adventure at 7AM on the first day and finish at 4PM on the second day. 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.
Krma Valley – 2 days
We start and finish the trek in Krma valley. We will sleep in Triglavski dom, from where we climb to the top. From there, we can descend via Planika hut, making a small circle.
Day 1: 5-7 h walking and 1500 m of altitude change.
Day 2: 3-5 h from the hut (Triglavski dom) to the top and return, plus 4 h down to the valley.
There is via ferrata (path equipped with wires and pitons) just from the hut to the top and return.
You may also be interested in a private climbing tour in Triglav. In that case I can offer you these climbing options.
And you can climb Triglav in winter as well. However, the only good option is to do it from Krma valley. You’ll find all the details on my special program of winter climbing in Mount Triglav.
If you have an interest in climbing this beautiful mountain, please get in touch with me. We will take the time to discuss the itinerary and the program!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
If you look for an accommodation for the day before or after the ascent, I suggest you to go to Hotel Hotnik.
The accommodation, meals and drinks are around 50€ per person.
This equipment list will help you while packing for the ascent of Mt Triglav. You don't need to have everything on the list. Technical equipment (helmet, harness…) is provided by me. The list is: harness, helmet, headlamp, warm clothing (fleece, etc.), waterproof jacket and trousers, gloves, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, shoes, poles, backpack (30 L), water bottle, medicine prescribed by your doctor, camera, energy bars, chocolates, other food for during the climb, Alpine Club membership card.
- There are limited options for renting boots in Slovenia, so I recommend that you bring your own. If you don't have them, I can send you some links to the rental shops (there is only one in Bohinj which has all sizes).
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.
