Reach the summit of Mt Triglav, the symbol of Slovenia, on this 3-day hiking trip starting from Lepena Valley, together with Igor, a ZGVS mountain guide.

Julian Alps

3 Days

Jun - Sep




Mount Triglav (2864 m) is the highest peak in Slovenia and also a powerful symbol of the country. Join me on this 3-day hiking trip to the top!

I propose to begin our hike in Lepena Valley, a stunning alpine valley inside Triglav National Park. More precisely, our starting point will be Dom dr. Klemena Juga hut.

From there, we'll continue hiking towards Krn Lake, the largest glacial lake in the country. Along the way, we'll see remains of the First World War.

After spending the night at Dom na Komni hut, we'll traverse around the Seven Triglav Lakes Valley.

Finally, the third day we'll reach the top of Mt Triglav. The last hour of hiking will be the most technical and challenging, because some parts of the route are exposed. However, you'll feel safe and can use the help of a still rope.

Then, after reaching the summit of Triglav, we'll descent to Zadnjica valley.

If you want to join me on this 3-day hiking trip to Mt Triglav, please contact me! It will be a pleasure to guide you around some of the most beautiful sceneries in Slovenia.

In case you're looking for a shorter trip, you can also consider this Triglav ascent from Zadnjica valley.

About the guide

Aspirant Guide

I am an aspirant IFMGA mountain guide, born in 1987, from Vuhred, now living in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I have been discovering mountains from an early age. I started climbing at the age of 15 and now it has become a way of life.

During my active years as an alpinist, I have been on four expeditions to the Andes, Himalaya and China and I was nominated for the Piolet d’or for the ascent to Xulian Feng in China.

I like all types of alpine activities such as alpine climbing, sport climbing, ski touring, etc. Overall I like to spend my time in the mountains. That is why I decided I not only want to climb for myself, but to guide other people, so they can experience what I have until now.
My mission as a mountain guide is to provide you the safest way to discover mountains, so that you can explore the vertical world in a different way. I will guide you to more or less populated mountain trails and climbing routes.

Igor was a great guide. This was my first tour and he was very patient and very happy to pass on his considerable knowledge. Stunning surroundings and great snow made for a fantastic experience. Thanks!

Igor is very attentive guide and he was with me at every step. He made pictures with me along the way and he pushed me to achieve my goal. Thanks! All the entire process to booking was very easy from choosing the trip to descending back in town in safety and they are amazing team, because I have a tone of questions and they have a tone of patience. Thanks again, guys! I will return for via ferrata on Triglav.



The experience truly was 5*, the scenery of 7 lakes valleys was just breathtaking. Igor was amazing guide, he really took care of us and explained about the local culture and nature while drinking few beers at the hut & waiting the sunset:)  Especially the "fast route down", via ferrata and meeting the mountain goat was very memorable!
