These group outings run on Sundays/Mondays and Wednesdays/Thursdays from June 20th till the end of September.

Itinerary

Day 1: Krma Valley - Triglavski dom

Pick-up at your accommodation between 7 and 8am. The route to the Triglavski dom has an extension of 7,3 kilometers and we will face an altitude gain of 1500 meters. It will take us around 5 hours to reach the hut.

On the way, we will find a water spring, so you only need to bring a 1 or 1,5 l. water bottle and snacks.

Day 2: Triglavski dom - Summit! - Krma Valley

From the Triglavski dom hut, we will need to ascend another 400 meters to reach the summit.

Due to the exposed terrain (via ferrata), the ascent and descent will take us around 3-4 hours from the hut to the top and back, plus 4 hours down to the valley.

We should arrive in the valley at around 4pm.

The Mount Triglav climb is considered an intermediate-level ascent. It’s not very technical, but it has some steep and exposed sections in the last stretch that requires the use of a rope.

The price to climb Triglav with a guide will vary depending on whether you join a group (275€ pp) or decide on a private guiding option (with a maximum of 4 participants), you can find the prices detailed in the price section.

Generally, joining a group is a great option for solo travelers and small groups of two or three people as it is cheaper and you get to share the adventure with other climbers. Private options are great if you would like a more personalized experience or if you are already traveling in your own group. Winter climbs can only be privately guided.

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.
