Mount Triglav guided winter climb

Join a certified guide from the Mitja Šorn team for a 1 or 2-day climbing trip to Mount Triglav during winter and live an amazing experience.



2 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Oct, Nov, Dec




  • Ascend Mount Triglav during the winter.
  • Visit the Triglavski dom mountain hut.


I invite you to a winter climbing trip to the highest peak in Slovenia: Mount Triglav, at 2864 m.

Inside a beautiful national park in the Julian Alps, Triglav can be climbed all year round. This time, I propose an exciting winter ascent, starting from the Krma valley.

Just below the top of Mt Triglav there's a mountain hut: Triglavski dom. This place is a great destination for ski touring, so this program may be interesting for skiers as well.

Triglav in winter is a technical mountain. The ground is exposed and we'll be climbing snow slopes up to 50°. The climb is done with crampons on our feet and one ice axe.During the winter conditions may change a lot. We usually don't have via ferrata to reach the top of the mountain as we do in other seasons. Maybe in early January, some cable might still be out of the snow, making the climb a bit easier. But it might be covered with snow completely.If you are in an exceptional physical condition (level 5, from 1 to 5), you can climb this peak in just one day. However, 2 days is the recommended length for this trip. Remember that in winter we often have to do more than 2000 vertical meters to get to the top, so to do it in a short winter day you really have to be super fit.


The hut is available during winter (actually it works all year long), although the rooms are not heated.

As regards the necessary gear, at the bottom of this description you can find a list of the recommended equipment you should bring. Please remember that high hiking boots and warm clothing are essential for the winter ascent of Mt Triglav. During the ascent, you will also need to use crampons and ice axe but I will provide them.

You can also check the summer program I offer to the summit of Slovenia. And please contact me if you want to join me for this winter adventure in Mount Triglav. I will be happy to take you there!

About the guide

I am a UIAGM mountain guide, ski instructor and sports teacher and the current president of the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association.

I am still the only guide who can make a living working exclusively in Slovenia. I climb Triglav more than 25 times per year, which means I have climbed the most famous peak in my country over 200 times.

If you want to climb or ski in Slovenian mountains I am the right choice. I guide via ferrata, rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, hikes, heliski, freeride skiing and ski touring.

Slovenia has good options for all of these activities, so you are welcome to take a look at my trips and find something for yourself. If you don't find anything let me know and I will see if I can help you!

I speak English. Ich sprache auch ein bischen Deutsch. Parla anche un pocho Italiano e abla tambien un po Espanol.

If I am not available to guide you, one of the super experienced guides in my team - Rok, Peter, Grega or Igor - will be your guide.

Too much snow and avalanche risk cancelled the climb to the top of Mt Triglav. However, Mitja Sorn Guiding Team provided alternate hiking and climbing options, which were challenging, exciting and safe.

Disliked this tour. And don't like the way the guys/guides are communicating.

I had a great time climbing Mt Triglav with Urôs. It’s definitely been a climbing highlight for me, so I can recommend him and the company he works for. If you’re wanting a safe, well organised and friendly service, I don’t think you can look past these guys. I’d happily use Mitja and Urôs again.

Great service from both Explore-Share and Mitja Sorn Guiding Team. Mita introduced me to my Guide Uros who kept me up to date and informed about the climbing situation due to weather. Due to limited availability of time and good weather, we opted for a day climb. It was a very long day, but thoroughly enjoyable despite the limited views. Uros was very knowledgeable of Triglav and the national park and we had some great conversations. A fantastic experience and totally recommend Mitja and his guiding team. Thank you!

Fantastic experience climbing Mount Triglav with outstanding mountain guide Mitja Sorn. It was my first winter ascent and ski touring experience but Mitja made it an enjoyable experience despite challenging conditions with strong winds and freezing temperatures. He knows these mountains like his own back pocket and is able to maximize the experience without taking undue risks. Truly a great experience.

We had a fantastic climb with Mitja. He is a great guide - we felt 100% safe - but and he is a good companion too. The climb itself was magnificent, also thanks to our luck with weather - good timing is essential. We caught a sunny day with a perfect snow on a weekday in November, and had the summit all for ourselves.

I had a fantastic time on this climb; it was pushing my limits but I felt well looked after by Marco, who was professional and friendly throughout the trip. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
