Type of Trip
Triglav is the highest mountain in Slovenia. It lies in the Alps and is 2,864 meters high. This mountain is in the north-west of the country, very close to the border between Austria and Italy, and is the highest of the Julian Alps as well.
Mount Triglav offers many climbing alternatives. The help of a private guide is key to find the rock itinerary that is best for your climbing skills!
The easiest climbing route up to Triglav’s summit is via the Krma valley. Although we must climb around 2000 meters, there will be only 400 meters of via ferrata.
On the other hand, the hardest ascent route involves one via ferrata of about 1500 meters. The route starts at the Vrata valley and involves almost 2000 meters of altitude change.
These two climbing options in Triglav can be done in only one day. However, you must be super fit to achieve this. If you want to choose a 1-day private climb you should have a level 5, on a scale 1-5 in endurance. In that case, the price is €350 for one person and €500 for two (€250 each).
There is a third option. It is the ascent with the best sights since it takes place over the seven lakes. The climbing route is the longest of the three alternatives but the scenery is worth it.
I always suggest to all my clients and friends to take at least two days to enjoy a safe and great climbing experience in Triglav. The prices for a 2-day adventure are €550 for one person, €600 for two and €245 per person for a group of 3 or more guests. Price for private guiding during the group climbs season (from June 20th to the end of September) is 800€ for up to three guests and 245€ for each additional person in the group.
There are also climbing options of more days. For example, I can offer you a 3-day guided climb in which we can combine 2 different itineraries. The price of this program is €800 for one person, €900 for two participants and €390 per person for a group of 3 or more.
You may also be interested in a 2 or 3 day tour with a larger group of friends. In that case I can offer you this climbing program in Triglav.
All the mentioned prices include:
- Guiding fee;
- One transfer;
- Rental of technical equipment;
- Guide’s expenses.
If you want to start this trip in another valley of Slovenia, the transfer will have an extra cost. It can vary between 20 and 70 euros and will depend on the distance of the starting / finish points.
I have no doubts that you’ll love these climbing options in the Mount Triglav. Contact me now if you want to book your place or if you’re planning to come to Slovenia next summer!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
- The price includes guiding, one transport, technical equipment rental and the guide's expenses at the huts.
- On all ascents, there is an additional cost of food and accommodation on the mountain, which is around 50€ per person per night.
- If our starting and finishing point are in a different valley there is an extra cost of additional transfer, which varies between 20-70€, depending on distance.
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.
