Description

The stunning Julian Alps offer plenty of great hiking options in the Triglav National Park. Today I’d like to invite you to join me on a hut-to-hut trekking for 1 or more days, with the option of climbing Mount Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia.

This is a flexible program, so we can plan an itinerary for as many days as you wish, depending on your fitness level and time available. Bear in mind a  reasonable fitness level is required for you to fully enjoy the hike. It is also possible to follow a family-friendly itinerary, in case you would like to come with your kids and they are fit enough.

Triglav National Park is located in north western Slovenia. Mount Triglav (2864m) stands almost in the center of the park and it is the highest mountain in the Julian Alps. Along our hike, we will be sleeping in small mountain huts which offer simple accommodation and typical Slovenian food, enjoying spectacular views over alpine valleys and mountains, wildflower meadows and beautiful lakes.

If you choose to join me on a 4-day trekking tour, we can take the Vogel cable car from the beautiful Bohinj Lake (526m) to the Komna Hut (1520m) on the first day.  We will hike through enchanting alpine pastures, admiring traditional alpine architecture and lonely summits. Then, on the second day, we will go on a great hike around the spectacular Seven Lakes area, until we reach the Prehodavci hut (2071m).

On the third day, we will hike through Doic to the Planika mountain hut (2401m), with the option of climbing Mount Triglav (2864m), and finally on the fourth day we will descend hiking along the Krma Valley.

This temptative itinerary involves 5-8 hours of hiking per day, but we can make the hiking time shorter, depending on the group level and wishes. We can also easily tailor this option into a 3-day ascent, starting from Blato meadow, and crossing the Seven Lakes to the Prehodavci Hut on the first day.

If you would like to discover the amazing beauty of the Julian Alps in Slovenia, just send me a request. Book your trip and come enjoy a wonderful trekking and climbing adventure.

Mountain Guide

I am a IFMGA certified mountain guide, ski instructor, and sports teacher.

I believe guides do their best job when they guide in the mountains they are most familiar with. That is one of the biggest reasons why I specialize in guiding in Slovenia. I climb Triglav more than 25 times per year, which means I have climbed the most famous peak in my country around 400 times.

If you want to climb or ski in the Slovenian mountains, I am the right choice. I guide via ferrata, rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, hikes, freeride skiing, and ski touring. Most of my summer work involves climbing Triglav, and most of my winter work involves Triglav and ski touring around it.

Slovenia offers 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 spreche auch ein bisschen Deutsch. Parlo anche un po' di Italiano e hablo también un poco de Español.

If I am not available to guide you, one of the super experienced guides in my team will be your guide.

The tour exceeded our expectations in terms of wilderness, adventure, variety of terrain, views and being almost alone in this great national park. Mitja is a fantastic guide with exceptional knowledge of the Julian Alps, how to navigate all the risks and where to find great snow conditions. I have done many adventures and this has been one of the best.

We booked a weekend trip to summit the Triglav. Mitja was very kind and helpful from the start (even before the trip, he was very responsive and helpful through e-mail). We were kindly picked up early in the morning and brought back the second day. Mitja was very communicative from the start, checking in if we we're doing okay and if the pace was good and answering all our questions. We could tell that Mitja had a lot of experience in the mountains and as a guide, which made us feel comfortable and safe from the start. It was great to have two guides at the summit as we we're a group of three. This was our first experience summiting in the winter and it was a great one. Thank you so much Mitja and team for making this amazing experience possible!

Mitja was an amazing guide and especially a great companion on this tour. Mitja was easy to communicate with when planning the trip, well reflected about conditions and honest about best possibilities on how to spend these days in Slovenia. Mitja is a caring character giving all of us a feeling of beeing welcome on the tour. He adjusts his walking & skiing to group capabilities and is flexible with any planning - you get the feeling that it is "your tour". He knows the terrain extremely well and will share a lot of information about the surroundings. He took us to amazing sunsetting spots just next to Triglav Mountain for a last decent of the day and is only one of two guides having stored equipment in the remote mountain hut in the middle of Triglav National Park. Mitja is fun and communicative and easy to get a connection with. However he also leaves space for any character and does not try to "entertain" continuously which we highly appreciated. We can absolutely recommend and to reach out to Mitja for any trip in the Alps and in Triglav National Park especially. All the best from Germany, Lukas & Martin

Actually, due to the weather conditions, there are no ice for climbing. Mitja was very nice to offer us other options. We chose hiking in snow near Vogel instead. Mitja was very nice and professional. He provide sufficient gears and useful advice. Walking in snow was hard to balance, and the wind was very strong upside. But the view was magnificent and worthy. It was a very unique experience!
