Highlights

 
  • Reach the tallest peak in Slovenia.

  • Hike through the 7 Triglav Lakes Valley route.

  • Spend the nights in different mountain huts.

 

Join me for a 3-day hiking traverse across the gorgeous valley of 7 Triglav lakes.

At 2864 m, Mount Triglav is the highest mountain of the country and also of the Julian Alps. It’s a very popular climbing destination, especially because of its huge North Wall. 

On this hiking trip, we’ll reach the summit of this Slovenian peak while traversing through the beautiful 7 Triglav Lakes Valley route.

The starting point of this trip will be Blato meadow, in the Bohinj region. Along the way, we’ll be staying in different mountain huts like Dolic hut and Vodnkova hut. From that hut, there’s a via ferrata that will lead us to the summit of Mount Triglav and then down to Triglavski dom hut.

You can check the itinerary of this trip below this description.

Please contact me if you are interested in this 3-day hiking trip in Slovenia. I will be glad to show you my favorite spots in this region that I know so well!

Also, I can lead you on a private 1-day ascent to the peak.

About the Guide

 
 

I am an aspirant iFMGA mountain guide born in 1980 in Mojstrana, a Slovenian village close to Mount Triglav, the highest mountain in the country at 2864 m.

From an early age, my parents took me to the mountains during summer and winter. At that time, my father was part of a mountain rescue team in my hometown and was also going on expeditions to the Himalaya and the Andes, so he became a big inspiration for me. We went climbing, hiking, sport climbing and ski touring together. His enthusiasm truly influenced me.

I went to Alpine school, then Mountain rescue team, I did the Alpinist exam and I became an Alpinist instructor. After that, I also studied to be a professor of Sport. Several years later, I decided to begin my mountain guide education and to become an IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide.
