2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




  • Climb to the top of Mount Triglav (2864m), the highest mountain in Slovenia
  • Join a group and enjoy a safe an exciting climb along an IFMGA-certified guide
  • Discover an amazing lunar landscape on your way to the summit


I invite you to join me on this open group tour and climb Mount Triglav (2864m), the highest peak in Slovenia. Our 2-day ascent will start from the Soča valley, one of the easiest ways to approach this famous peak.

This tour is available from the end of June until the end of September. We depart every Sunday and Wednesday.

From the village of Trenta na Logu we will begin our hike, heading towards the Zadnjica Valley. We will then hike upwards through a historical route with remains of the First World War. We will spend the night at the Dom na Doliču hut (2151 m).

The next day, we will climb through an incredible lunar landscape, at 2500m, and we will finally reach the summit of Mount Triglav after climbing a via ferrata.

Please note we will adapt the program to weather conditions, therefore we will choose the best time to climb to the top of Mount Triglav. This could be either on the first day in the afternoon, or on the second day in the early morning.

We have the option of descending from the top by the same route, forward, to the Planika hut or hiking down to Kredarica. This way, we could make the whole traverse of Mount Triglav ridge. This is a quite long via ferrata climb and hence a large and scenic round trip.

We will cover a total of 2000 meters of ascent and descent during these days. It will take us about 12-18 hours of hiking, spread in two days. We will start at 7 am on day 1 and finish on 4 pm on day 2.  Please note the departure and return time may change a little, depending on weather conditions, but it will remain around this schedule. Also, in case of bad weather, we will find an alternative safe goal to reach.

Also note on our way back to the Dom na Doliču hut, before descending to the valley, we have the option of visiting the historic remnants of one of the largest and highest military posts, built during the World War I and the World War II.

Are you ready to climb this famous peak in Slovenia? Then send me a request, join this group ascent tour and we will reach together the summit of Mount Triglav.

About the guide

I’m an IFMGA Mountain Guide and an Alpine Instructor from Slovenia.

At the back of the house where I grew up, past a slope, a higher hill and some rocks, you could see Mount Triglav rising towards the blue sky.

Mountains were a part of my backyard and I started practicing alpinism when I was a schoolboy. At that time, I enrolled for a sport climbing school and I became an alpine instructor in 1995.

Between 1995 and 1997, I’ve been a member of the Sub-commission on Extreme Alpinism for the Slovene Alpine Society. Some years later, I was Chief of the Commission for Alpinism.

As a member of the alpine team, I went on several expeditions in North and South America, the Himalaya, the Tian Shan and the Kookshall-Too mountain range.

I climbed more than 700 routes in Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and France. Long winter climbs and ridges are always among my favorites.

I made some first winter ascents: on two routes on the north wall of Ribezni, Možnica (700m, V+, 5, UIAA VI/A1) and in Jof di Montasio / Poliški Špik, Grapa (700m, UIAA 4, ascent and complete ridge traverse). Other memorable climbs were a winter traverse of 4000 m peaks in Mont Blanc (4807 m) and the Slovenian Peuterey ridge traverse, among many others.

After 6 years of training, I obtained my IFMGA certification in 2010.

I organize many guided ski touring, rock climbing and ice climbing trips in Slovenia, especially in the surroundings of Mt. Triglav and the whole Soča valley.

Mala Mojstrovka is a very nice via ferrata with a steep climb and very nice views and our guide Blaz was top!

Blaz went above and beyond to make sure I had an amazing experience while climbing. Would highly recommend for anyone considering, it is worth it!

We did the Mangart, Slovenian route up and Italian route down. Blaz was an excellent guide, paying utmost attention to our safety. That's also why we started at 5 am, to avoid danger of potential thunderstorms in the afternoon. Blaz was very knowledgeable about the region and its turbulent history. We enjoyed our day with Blaz very much! Felt very very safe, learned a lot and would very happily recommend Blaz to anyone!

The experience was absolutely amazing. It was the highlight of trip to Slovenia. The views were incredible and Blaz was a great guide. This was my first time doing a via ferrata climb, and even though I was a bit nervous at first I never felt scared once we started the climb. Everything was super safe and we were able to move at our own pace. Blaz told us a lot about the mountains and the history around them and took great photos of us during the climb. 10/10 experience :)

It was a pleasure to spend the day out with Blaz. My 14-year-old son and I did a 1 day Via Ferrata trip with him and his knowledge and competence made it a thoroughly enjoyable and safe adventure. I would definitely recommend this trip and Blaz as a guide.

Great trip with Blaz!

We didn’t do the Mangart via ferrata as we were never looking into this. We wanted to do a beginner’s class, and friends of ours recommended Blaz. This turned out to be a really good recommendation and spent a fabulous day with Blaz! Already recommended him further to other people we met on a campsite during our vacation! 🙌🏼

Great trip. Felt super safe with Blaz and had a very enjoyable day out in the mountains.

Blaz was an amazing guide! He is very knowledgeable and passionate about mountaineering. During the climb he was calm and patience. He takes security very seriously and offered advice on how to cross the more technical sections. You certainly know you are in safe hands. Blaz also has a witty sense of humour and he is passionate about local history, making for great conversations both up and down the mountain. The climb up Mangart with Blaz is the highlight of my trip to Slovenia, and I cannot recommend a trip with him highly enough.

Morgan Hallow

Blaz was an absolutely amazing guide. I cannot overstate how memorable he made the trip and how kind he was to me and my friends. Whether he was soothing our nerves during a particularly steep part of the climb or telling us vibrant stories about Slovenian history, Blaz exceeded all of our expectations tenfold. I highly recommend Blaz’s trip up Triglav and I hope to return sometime soon and do another adventure with him !

Blaz is a great guide, offering interesting tidbits of information about the hike and points of interest along the way. Though we couldn’t hike Mangart due to weather conditions, the proposed hike was just as fun and Blaz was incredibly patient and helpful throughout! Wouldn’t hesitate booking with him again!

Andre Baumgartner

This was my first via ferrata and on the whole tour I never felt in danger or overstrained. Blaz is a great guy who can explain everything to you, can tell you a lot of interesting things about the region and is always up for a funny saying. An all-round successful day for me. Very recommendable.
