    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!

    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.

    I find it a bit awkward that all correspondence goes through a third party as it is less efficient. Once I had a guide’s email it all went smoothly

    To be frank we didn\'t really got what we wanted. We got Igor as a guide but he acted more of a babysitter rather than a true guide for us. The climb up to Triglav is not safe and we wanted a guide to ease the planning bc we didn\'t have enough time to prepare, and maximize safety while keeping our wishes in focus. We are not the easiest folks to guide as we are used to do stuff on our own. The guide does a good job if your only concern is safety and you\'re willing to blind trust people and not asking questions. He will drag you to the top and back. One big mistake he did, he never asked what we expected he never gave directions, or explanations, we only got to follow instructions and got short answers when we asked. We needed to challenge him at the end to get what we wanted and then he wasn\'t happy about it. We understand why, but we needed something else than we got until that point. The other thing is that we had an unfriendly guide in a hurry on the way down from the hut, day2. For us that hike would have been better without him. When it\'s said he did everything he was expected to do by himself fine (apart from day2), nice service at the hut and otherwise.

    One of the best organised trips I have been on. Mitja was very experienced and nothing was too much trouble for him. Responses to emails/texts were very prompt.
