Type of Trip




    The Krn mountain (2,244m) in the Julian Alps of Slovenia is an amazing peak. Surrounding the mountain are beautiful rivers like the Soca river, the Tolminka river and the Lepenjica river. Along with those rivers, there are also several large peaks and small villages, like Vrsno, Dreznica, Magozd and Krn. And finally, on the northern side of the peak is the Krn lake, which is the largest glacial lake in the country.

    Because there is such an abundance of amazing things to see around the Krn Lake, it is perfect for touring on skis or snowshoes. And on this trip, you will have the option to use either one. Also, because the area is so large, this trip can be extended to multiple days. And on each day, we will be touring for approximately 7 hours. However, you don’t have to worry about accommodations because there are a number of comfortable mountain huts in the area. And each hut has comfortable beds where you can rest until the next day’s touring adventure.

    With an area of this size, and with so much to see, there are an almost endless number of routes to choose from. Hence making this trip around the Krn Lake area one of exciting variety. We will choose the routes based on a number of factors. They include weather conditions, the snow conditions, and the physical level and desires of the participants.

    The Krn Lake is a beautiful body of water. And the Slovenian landscape around it is absolutely stunning. If you would like to join me on a ski tour, or snowshoe tour, for one day, or multiple days, in this beautiful place, just send me a request.

    I can also guide you on a snowshoe tour through the Triglav national park.

    Dean was very helpful and responsive to our enquiries. He was enthusiastic and devoted to show the prettiest side of Tre Cime to us. Although we were a bit behind, Dean was patient to wait for us and cater to our speed. Great experience!!

    Dean is an excellent guide. He\'s friendly and conscientious and throughout or trip was focused on getting us to achieve our hiking goals while being aware of our abilities and experience. We chose a relatively tough hike (8hrs, 1,700m elevation gain) but Dean made sure we completed it safely and at a good pace. He also took photos throughout so we could concentrate on the hiking and shared them with us later. He was also good company on the hike. I would thoroughly recommend his services.
