Krn Lake, Julian Alps, Guided Ski, Snowshoe Tour

Krn Lake

Whether ski touring or snowshoe touring, exploring the Krn Lake in the Julian Alps of Slovenia is amazing, and UIMLA certified guide Dean wants to lead you.


Julian Alps

+1 Day

Jan - Apr, Dec




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.
