Spend a full day climbing to the summit of the great Mount Triglav with IFMGA certified mountain guide Andrej via the fun and scenic Slovenian route.
It is an amazing thing when an inexperienced climber can scale one of the highest mountains in not only an entire country, but an entire mountain range. And on this trip, that is exactly the kind of experience I’m offering to lead you on. The mountain is Triglav (2,864m) and it is the highest peak in Slovenia and the Julian Alps mountain range. And the Slovenian route, which is the route we will be taking on this trip, is an undemanding path that leads right to the top of the peak.
Beginning in the Aljazev dom chalet in the Vrata valley, we will spend the next 1.5 hours making our way along the Prag route to the foot of the mountain’s face. Afterwards, we will climb for another 1.5 to 3 hours to the Triglav summit. For the descent, we will spend approximately 3 hours following the same path taken on the ascent back down to the Vrata valley.
The Slovenian route covers approximately 800 metres and presents a grade 1 to 2 level climb. And while the route is not very demanding, there are some tough spots. But rest assured when we reach those spots, I will make sure you are properly and safely guided through them.
The views during the climb, and especially from the mountain’s summit, are absolutely stunning. And I have no doubt you will remember them, and celebrate them, long after you’ve returned home.
So if are just beginning your mountain climbing career, and are looking for a great peak to start with, then send me a request and join me to the top of Mount Triglav via the Slovenian route. I know you will have a great time.
I also lead this 2 day climb to the summit of Mount Triglav from the beautiful Krma valley as well.
Participants should bring proper mountaineering and climbing equipment with them.

I was born in Kranj (Slovenia), and since I was a child the mountains have been my passion. I graduated in Sports at Ljubljana University and started an alpine career as a member of the Kranj Alpine Club.
In 1977, I climbed my first eight-thousander: it was a new route on Gasherbrum I. Some years later, a partner and I became the first Slovenians to ascend Mt Everest, also on a new route.
In fact, I’ve been at the top of Everest twice. The second time, I reached the summit with my wife Marija, and we were the first married couple achieving that.
Throughout my alpine career, I took part and even lead more than 20 expeditions in the Nepalese Himalayas. There, I climbed more than six peaks over eight thousand meters: two of them on new routes and three using pure alpine style. I also climbed in Patagonia, Pamir, USA, Caucasus and Scotland.
However, my major success was climbing a new route on Kangchenjunga, in alpine style and together with climber Marko Prezelj. After this, we won the prestigious mountaineering award Piolet d’Or.
I am a mountain guide since 1982 and I obtained my IFMGA license in 1997. I am also an instructor at the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association (SMGA).
I still live in Kranj with my wife and the youngest of our three children.

We had an amazing time. Andrej is such a good guide, he has so much experience, we learnt a lot from him! We also felt completely safe even on those parts of the route which were a bit more difficult. The route itself is great for aspiring climbers. We had no climbing experience and felt it was perfect - you do climb the whole of the North face and there is almost no walking so you definitely get a good taste of alpine climbing but it is not too technical. It took us a long time, longer than expected, and we ended up staying in a mountain hut overnight and walking back the next day. Definitely do it but if you want to go the summit it might be better to book the two day trip as it a very long climb indeed (it took us 15 hours to get to the summit) - but of course totally worth it and the views are spectacular!
