Description

Join this 3-day hiking trip in the Julian Alps and have Slovenia below your feet from the summit of Mount Triglav (2864 m).

This peak is not only the highest in the country but also a national symbol featured in the Slovenian flag. It’s located inside Triglav National Park, in the north-west of the country.

The starting point of this trip will be Aljaz hut in the Vrata Valley. This beautiful alpine valley ends at the foot of Triglav’s famous north wall.

From there, we’ll hike between 5 and 6 hours to Krederica Hut, where we’ll spend the night. Besides, you’ll receive a short training on via ferrata equipment that will be useful the following day.

Finally, we’ll head to the top of Triglav on the third day. But first, we’ll climb 300 m on a via ferrata that will lead us right to the summit.

Once there, you’ll admire impressive views of the Julian Alps and the Adriatic Sea.

Would you like to join me for this exciting ascent on Mount Triglav? Please, contact me. I’ll be glad to provide you an enjoyable adventure!

After breakfast,  it’s a pretty walk up below the north face of Triglav. The climb  today is moderately difficult, you should make it to Krederica Hut in 5-6 hours. You will get a basic course on via ferrata equipment late afternoon.

Day 3: Climbing Triglav (2864 m), then Descend to Vrata Valley

You will get up  at dawn. You need to ascent more than 300 vertical meters to reach the highest Slovenian peak.

You will start ascent with via ferrata set. After about 30 minutes-1 hr, you will reach Small Triglav. Mountain guide will rope  you up.

After summiting, you descend to Krederica hut for a rest. It’s quite likely that you’ll be in time to walk back to Aljaz Hut in the Vrata Valley (4 hour walk down).

About the guide

I am a Slovenian IFMGA mountain guide with the ZGVS.
It was when I was 12 years old that I first climbed a mountain myself and by the age of 15 I had started rock climbing.
Since then, my ascents count up to around 1000, starting from Mont Blanc in the seventies and Triglav north face to Cho Oyu, and all over South America including 18 of the 6000m+ peaks including a first ascent on south face of Aconcagua.

I have climbed and travelled all over the world, Shivlinga, K2, Mt Everest, Manaslu, Shishi Panama, El Cap and sport climbing in Kalymnos and Cuba.

Skiing powder in great conditions and rock climbing under the sun are my motto!

Contact me if you'd like to have fun safely in the mountains with me! If I am unavailable then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Milan, can take care of you!

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
