Highlights

 
     

    I invite you to climb Mt Triglav (2864 m), the highest peak in Slovenia, leaving from the Soča valley, one of the easiest ways to approach this famous peak.

    We’ll start and finish our hike at the same point: the village of Trenta na Logu. From there, we’ll continue to Zadnjica Valley and upwards through an scenic historical route with remains of the First World War. Then, we’ll spend the night at Dom na Doliču.

    The following day, we’ll ascend a ‘moonscape’ at 2500 m before we go to the top. We can descend the same way or forward to Planika hut or down to Kredarica. That way, we can make the whole traverse of Mt. Triglav ridge and hence a large circle.

    In addition, there is via ferrata from the hut to the summit of Mount Triglav and back. There’s also an option of visiting the historic remnants of one of the largest and highest military posts.

    Even though this route can be done in 1 day, this is only possible if you are super fit (it takes from 12 to 16 hours). I recommend to do it in two days, so you can really enjoy the hike as well as admire the beautiful landscapes.

    This route to Mt Triglav is far from the major (and usually more crowded) paths. It’s also a very steep route to the top.

    For further details, you can find the complete itinerary below this description.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I’m an IFMGA Mountain Guide and an Alpine Instructor from Slovenia.

    At the back of the house where I grew up, past a slope, a higher hill and some rocks, you could see Mount Triglav rising towards the blue sky.

    Mountains were a part of my backyard and I started practicing alpinism when I was a schoolboy. At that time, I enrolled for a sport climbing school and I became an alpine instructor in 1995.

    Between 1995 and 1997, I’ve been a member of the Sub-commission on Extreme Alpinism for the Slovene Alpine Society. Some years later, I was Chief of the Commission for Alpinism.

    As a member of the alpine team, I went on several expeditions in North and South America, the Himalaya, the Tian Shan and the Kookshall-Too mountain range.

    I climbed more than 700 routes in Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and France. Long winter climbs and ridges are always among my favorites.

    I made some first winter ascents: on two routes on the north wall of Ribezni, Možnica (700m, V+, 5, UIAA VI/A1) and in Jof di Montasio / Poliški Špik, Grapa (700m, UIAA 4, ascent and complete ridge traverse). Other memorable climbs were a winter traverse of 4000 m peaks in Mont Blanc (4807 m) and the Slovenian Peuterey ridge traverse, among many others.

    After 6 years of training, I obtained my IFMGA certification in 2010.

    I organize many guided ski touring, rock climbing and ice climbing trips in Slovenia, especially in the surroundings of Mt. Triglav and the whole Soča valley.

    Blaz was an incredible guide! Was very informative about the history behind the area and did a great job of making sure we had everything we needed for a great climb! Took so many pictures of us along the way and was a delight to speak with all the way!

    Blas was great! He was really patient with us amateurs, never rushed us and even on the way down the mountain constantly slowed dow/stopped to allow everyone to catch up. For 2 people in our group Ferratas are new and they both fell in love with it! We will definitely be back and can’t wait to have Blas as our guide again!
