Description

Join a group and climb Mount Triglav in 2 days! Slovenia's highest peak is located in the center of the Triglav National Park.

Summer is the ideal season for this climbing trip. During this period, we organize together with my friend Mitja, a local IFMGA mountain guide as well, ascents every Wednesday-Thursday and Sunday-Monday.

Rather than hiring a mountain guide privately or going on your own, I offer you to join a selected group. Of course, this also makes the trip more affordable than with a private guide. In addition, you will surely be part of a great and fun small group.

We leave from Krma valley. From there, we take our time to climb the meadows. All along we meet cows and their shepherds, while enjoying beautiful landscapes. Slowly, going up the slopes, we reach either the Triglavski dom na Kredarici or the Staničeva mountain hut.

The ascent from the hut to the summit is airy and slippery (last 1.5 hours). It is not technically difficult and you will be secured with a rope. We can reach the summit of Mount Triglav either at the end of day 1 or early in day 2. This will depend on the weather we find, as well as on the level of participants. The weather will also determine the exact departure time.

The total walking/climbing time is 12-18 hours.

Does this beautiful climb sound interesting? Then please contact me, I would love taking you there!

About the guide

I grew up in Slovenia with Julian Alps as my backyard. Expeditions to Himalaya started when I was 17, started steep skiing at 15, climbing big walls at 13 and it was a natural progression to BASE jump and to become a mountain guide- a job that feeds my soul. I have been to several climbing expeditions to Peru, Kyrgyzstan, Tibet, Nepal and India.

I'm an IFMGA qualified mountain guide as well as an instructor for future guides, ski instructor, certified helicopter operator and a Heli Ski guide. Although my work took me all over the world my favorite place is still in the Julian Alps. Sharing the hidden places in my Home Mountains with my clients, guiding and teaching them to explore on their own is has been my biggest passion for the past few years.

Mountains are my passion. Winter or summer, climbing, flying through the air or skiing, it doesn't matter to me if I am guiding or having fun with friends. I simply get spaced out when I am in the mountains. Guiding for me is not a job - it is a state of mind and a lifestyle.

This rating is for Igor Kremser, who ended up guiding our group. He did an amazing job and made everyone feel comfortable climbing to the peak. He also took great pictures along the way and shared them with us. All in all, a fantastic experience!

It was an amazing trip and Rock was a wonderful guide. There was a difficult situation because of storm but everybody felt very safe thanks to Rock and his experience.

I had an awesome time going up Mt Triglav with Rok! He was super friendly and made the hike all the better. Both the guide and the ascent were a 5 out of 5!

My ascent of Mt Triglav with Rok went very well.  The group reached the summit successfully.  It was the right decision to go for it on the same day that we had walked up to the hut. I felt safe all of the time with Rok and I would look forward to climbing with him again sometime in the future.  The other members of the group were very pleasant company.

We had a fantastic experience with Rok. We booked a 2 day trip to climb Mt. Triglav in June, 2015. The first 2/3rds of the ascent were pretty easy. During this part Rok was less of a technical guide, but was very valuable in setting a good pace to reach our hut on time, knowing when to stop for rests, knowing where the next mountain spring was to refill our water, and providing us with some information about the social history of the area, and some natural history about the mountains and forests we were walking through. It really increased my appreciation for the area and helped me enjoy the trek that much more. On the second day we climbed to the summit, and this is where Rok's experience and guidance proved invaluable. The trail led us along numerous ridges, with shear vertical drops on either side, and near vertical climbs up shear rock faces, some with, and some without a via ferrata to tie off to. I found it quite nerve-wracking, and would not have been able to do it alone. Rok was very calm and reassuring the entire time, giving gentle reassurance and encouragement, which really helped. In addition, he took our safety very seriously which gave me the confidence to continue to the summit. The landscape and scenery around Mt Triglav is absolutely stunning - I have a fantastic time, and would not have been able to enjoy it (or complete the trek even) without the help and guidance of Rok - he really does rock (I've been waiting this whole review to squeeze in that pun). I could highly recommend Rok and Vertical Adventures to anyone looking to do some exploring and adventuring in Slovenia.
