Itinerary

Day 1: Lepena– Krn lake – Lepočami – Bogatinska Vratca – Lanževica– Komna hut

We will begin our adventure on a trail that takes us from Lepena to Krn Lake. From there, we will head to some abandoned Italian caravels where border controls took place between the two world wars. We will climb Bogatinsko sedlo (1804 m), and from the saddle, we will continue to Lanževica (2003 m). At the end there is a folded descent to komna hut.

  • Altitude gain: 1300 m

  • Distance: 13 km

  • Duration: 8-9 h

Day 2: Komna hut – Triglav 7 lakes hut - 7 lakes valley - Prehodavci hut

On day 2, we will explore the longest high-mountain valley of the Julian Alps, where Triglav National Park is located. The trail from Komna hut gradually progresses through the Triglav traverse route to the mountain on Kal, and slowly descends into Lopučnica valley followed by the ascent to the 7 lakes hut.  As we approach the hut, we will catch the first views of the 5th and 6th - double Triglav lakes.

Then we will keep hiking through the 7 lakes valley to Kidney Laks, the 4th and largest lake. Before climbing to Prehodavci hut (2071 m), we will catch sight of the 2nd and 3rd lakes- Brown Lake and Green Lake.

  • Altitude gain: 850 m

  • Distance: 16 km

  • Duration: 6-7 h

Day 3: Triglav

There are 2 options for the third day, the first and easiest is to head to Kanjavec (2568 m), and the second, which is slightly more demanding, is to climb Triglav (2864 m).

Both groups will start by heading towards Hribarice. From there, the first group will move toward Kanjavec (2568 m), Slovenia's longest ski touring route, the top is straightforward and the route requires no special technical skills. Then we will descend to Dolič and continue through the Velska valley to Vodnik hut.

In case you decide to climb Triglav, we will continue over Hribarice to Dolič. From the hut, we follow a former Italian mule track and then branch off to the right towards Triglav until we reach an altitude of 2550 m, where the protected climbing route starts. It takes us to the Triglav ridge which we follow to the top of Triglav. From the summit, we will enjoy views all the way to the Slovenian sea. We follow the classic path down to Small Triglav (2725 m) and continue down to Planika hut (2401 m). From there, we move down to Vodnik hut (1817 m) where we meet with group 1.

NOTE: to carry out the Triglav climb, at least 3 people must choose this option.

Anita

Mountain Leader

I started with hiking first as a student and during the years with mountaineering, climbing, ski touring and more.

Now I live in the most beautiful village under our highest mountain of Triglav in Julian Alps and I started guiding long time ago first in Slovenian mountains and since I finished UIMLA course I guide abroad too.

We are guiding mostly in Julian Alps but also in Karawanks in Austrian Alps, in Croatia, and in Italy.

I prefer to guide smaller groups so that guests feel really comfortable in the mountains.

Please get in touch with me if you wish to be guided on any of our trips in the mountains. If I'm busy I will make sure that another great guide will guide you.

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.
