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.

First group:

  • Altitude Gain: 1500 m

  • Distance: 10 km

  • Duration: 6-8 h

Second Group (Triglav):

  • Elevation Gain: 1650 m

  • Distance: 8 km

  • Duration: 8-9 h

Day 4: Vodnik hut – Velska valley – Jezersko saddle – Planina Krstenica – Planina Blato

From the hut, we climb down to Velo polje (1680 m), where dairy products are produced during the summer months. From there, we continue to the Jezersko saddle (1980 m) and then descend to the Planina Krstenica (1645 m). From the mountain, there is another descent to the Planina Blato (1150 m) pasture where transport awaits us.

About the guide

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
