Description

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.

Mountain 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.

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!

Blaz was an incredible guide! Was very informative about the history behind the area and did a great job of making sure we had everything we needed for a great climb! Took so many pictures of us along the way and was a delight to speak with all the way!

We had a fabulous trip with Blaz. Highly recommend it. No mean feat to inspire our 9, 14 and 17 year olds at the same time and leave us all feeling well exercised and challenged. The early start (rejected 5am offer in favour of the more relaxed 6am!) meant even the grumpy 14 year old learned the benefits of climbing up to the beginning of the actual via ferrata before the heat set in. Breakfast up a mountain looking down on the cloud filled valleys at 8am was a real treat. But then the proper fun began. Roped together and often secured to the rocks with carabiners on the fixed wires, we climbed up gulleys and along rock faces that we could not possibly have tackled without Blaz's encouraging leadership. Along the way he delighted the boys with tales of Slovenian history and had constant stories to distract our young daughter. His photos provide a great reminder of the day (ok, long morning) and meant we didn't need to worry about cameras, and he and Igor (our second guide) made very good company over a well earned cuppa and pancakes at the Vrisic pass cafe at the end. Not cheap, but well worth it. We'll be back.
