Highlights

  • Scale the summit of Mount Triglav - the highest mountain in Slovenia!
  • Stay overnight in a cosy and warm mountain hut near the top - with great views!
  • See the stunning and cavernous Krma valley!
  • Discover the wonders and natural beauty of the Julian Alps!

Description

Together we will conquer one of the grandest and most majestic peaks in all of Europe, Mount Triglav, Slovenia’s highest mountain. Nestled within the spectacular Julian Alps and providing one of the greatest views you will ever see, the area is known for being a snowy, wintry wonderland reminiscent of a fairy tale!

I will lead you on this 2-day ascent which not only provides the immense satisfaction of reaching the summit of Triglav, but will also give you long-lasting memories along the way, including our gorgeous overnight stay in the highest hut in Slovenia.

Starting bright and early, we will pick you up in Bled and drive approximately 40 minutes to the starting point, the cavernous, vast and idyllic Krma Valley.

From here our day of adventure begins, as we spend most of the day (around 9 hours) climbing the massive mountain, stopping several times along the way to reflect and take it all in, the cold and fresh air invigorating you to keep going.

We then spend the night in an enchanting and delightful mountain hut, the highest in Slovenia, and we allow you plenty of free time to admire the views of the surrounding area, or get some much-needed sleep!

It’s another early start the next day as head for the summit, a relatively short 2-hour climb which ends with some of the most spectacular panoramic views possible. The sense of euphoria you will feel when reaching the summit is indescribable, as we guarantee you will not be disappointed.

It is then a 10-hour descent (with breaks!) back down to our starting point and then transport back to Bled, hopefully content, weary and full of pride for what you have achieved!

Climbing Mount Triglav should be on everyone’s bucket list – book now to tick it off!

For those short on time, I also offer a 1-day ascent of Mount Triglav here!

If you want a more leisurely activity, I offer a Wintertime day hike in the Julian Alps here!

About the guide

I’m a certified IFMGA mountain guide and canyoning guide living in the small and famous town of Bled, in Slovenia.

I started rock climbing at the age of 5. From that time on, the mountains became my playground. During my childhood, I took part in many rock climbing competitions. When I was 12, my twin brother and I did our first multi-pitch climb on a 350 m wall.

By the age of 16, I started competing in ice climbing world cups and later on skydiving junior world cups. In fact, in 2008 I became the world champion at the UIAA Ice Climbing Overall Ranking in speed ice climbing.

I climbed in many different countries like Peru, South Korea, Switzerland, France and Italy. However, Slovenia is the place I like the most.

Among other significant achievements, I did the first winter ascent (from the bottom of the wall) in Sphinx, the most difficult route in the mythical North Face of Mt Triglav. Besides, I got the first place for males at the IFMGA International mountain guide climbing championship in 2017.

I like sharing moments with people, especially in mountains. Feel free to join me in the highest mountains, steepest walls and many other Alpine wonders. I’m flexible, so we can also research places in other countries worldwide. Deep canyons, emerald rivers, beautiful mountains, great people, a good laugh, you name it.

I look forward to meeting you!

Stunning hike up Debela Pec with our guide Timotei from Altitude Activities. Everything was exactly as we hoped - super kind and friendly guide, beautiful scenery, fun hiking in the snow and a great traditional Slovenian lunch at the hut on the way down. Great experience!

Nice guy. We were unable to complete the hike due to personal reasons. But Matevz was understanding and did not tell us what to do. Instead he offered the facts and gave us options, which was the right way to do so. We ended up doing alternative activities on second day, which was a nice way to replace the 2 day itinerary.

That was not the guide, to begin with. It was a very very young woman. She was not very communicative, although she replied all the questions asked by the people seating in the front row. I, at the rear, have little opportunity to actually ear anything that it was said. Even less to ask myself The tour was not so bad but obviously some stops were far more interesting than others. What I found really annoying was the company of two people (clearly not customers) who shared the tour with us, speaking one another in their language as if they were alone in the van. Customers and friends (colleagues?) should be kept apart.

Hi, We had a great climb with Matevz on the Hanz route - we knew we were in good hands and he kept a good pace and made sure we were taken care of on the way up. The climb was quite steep and a little scary but it helped knowing we were secured by a rope so an exhilirating day overall. We loved it!

Our day with Jan and Youna (I'm definitely spelling their names wrong, sorry) went very well, he made sure to check our skill level and chose climbs based on it. He also offered tips on how to tackle climbs and was very attentive to our safety. A great plus is helping us take photos with his amazing camera. Great day out on the rocks!

Had an absolutely amazing morning sending a few routes on the limestone near Bled. Our guide JERRY was a super friendly guy who went well out of the way to make us feel welcome. We stopped by a bakery in route to pick up some snacks for the day and picked up Bella, an adorable friendly little mountain dog. Jerry’s knoweledge of the rock was excellent and he quickly got my partner and I set up in appropriate routes. We also climbed near to nesting peregrine falcons to top things off!

Matevz was the best guide! He is a really nice and easy going dude. We had a lot of fun going up and he knew how to motivate us when we needed it. All together he was a very chilled an relaxed guide. We could not have wished for more.

Thank you so much for making this arguably the best part of our 2 week stay in Slovenia. We highly recommend Altitude Adventures. All the staff are friendly and the guides were experienced, encouraging and a pleasure to be around. We were given loads of pictures and the gear was comfortable. Thanks again.

Matevz is an excellent guide. He is extremely outgoing, professional, and a great photographer. I highly recommend this trip for anyone looking for their first taste of mountaineering or just looking to climb Triglav in general. I hope that Matevz and I meet again soon to go on another epic adventure in the Alps.
