Mitja and his group of certified guides offer many different climbing alternatives in Mount Triglav, the highest peak of Slovenia and the Julian Alps. Choose the best route for you and discover this local emblem.
At 2,864 m., Triglav is the highest mountain in Slovenia and of the Julian Alps. It is located on the border between Austria and Italy and is one of Slovenia’s emblems. On these private guided climbing tours, you will be able to explore this breathtaking peak via the route that we choose together.
The easiest climbing route up to Triglav’s summit is via the Krma valley. It involves a 2000 meter climb and a 400 meter via ferrata. Otherwise, those who prefer a harder ascent can join me on a route that starts at the Vrata valley and involves a 2000 meter climb and a via ferrata of about 1500 meters. A third option is to explore a scenic route that will take us through the seven lakes. This is the longest of the three alternatives but the scenery is worth it.
Although climbing Triglav can be done in a day, I always suggest to all my clients and friends to take at least two days to enjoy a safe and great climbing experience. There are also multi-day climbing options.
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.
I have no doubts that you’ll love these climbing options to the top of Mount Triglav. Contact me now if you want to book your place or if you’re planning to come to Slovenia next summer!
- 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.
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.
Great experience and great professional guide.

Great guide, great weather and thus a wonderful experience! Thanks Luka :)
Mitja was the man, so friendly and experienced. We wouldn\'t have been able to do the climb without him, he provided all gear and had endless tips and great stories about Slovenia and the mountain. This was for sure one of the top highlights of our 13 day honeymoon in Slovenia! -Taylor and Pete (New Jersey, USA)
We enjoyed it a lot! It was really amazing and we were overwhelmed with the views. The guides Igor and Rok were really good, trustworthy and relaxed and easy-going. They told a lot about the nature and environment. Besides this they took good care of the group. We had a great time! Thank you so much for this experience! Best, Lies and Anne
We absolutely loved our climb up Triglav! It was one of the most amazing things I\'ve ever done. Miha was an outstanding guide, we couldn\'t have done it without him. He was funny, encouraging and very knowledgeable of the mountain and climbing. It was a wonderful experience and we would definitely do it again!
Klemen is an excellent guide, with an intuitive feel for the mountains. He speaks several languages and his skills and experience are second to none. He first climbed Triglav when he was 7 and has over 40 years experience in Mountains, including 15 years in Mountain Rescue. You could not be in sounder, safer or better hands. Klemen brought my wife and I up Triglav in one day, we stayed the night in the Kredarica hut and went down the next morning. We’re not experienced climbers but are reasonably fit. Many people had told us that it was too windy, too cold to go up the mountain. Because of this, we wanted an experienced guide. Unless you’re a very experienced climber, I wouldn’t recommend going beyond the hut in any weather. It is exciting, scary at times and challenging… but it is so incredibly worth it, without a doubt the highlight of our holiday and year. We learned so much and have amazing memories! Klemen emailed us in advance to check we had the right gear and met us in Mojstrana (we had a rental car and it was easy to find & leave the car). He provided us with crampons, because he sensed they would be useful in the conditions. Many people didn’t have them, but we were very grateful we did. This is just one example of how well he understood the Mountain and how extra prepared he was. He brought us up quickly through the forests and highlighted the best place to get water and take photographs. He suggested when to add layers, and taught us many tips for walking, hiking and scrambling. At the hut, he acted as translator, ensured we got food and that my wife and I had a room to ourselves. Klemen brought us up the Triglav late afternoon, he ensured we had the right gear and tied rope round us and made sure we had the crampons on right. We had a harness on but didn’t use in the end, as we didn’t need to and we moved quicker without it. He kept pushing us, which was a good thing and took some photos along the way to help us remember the occasion. He would teach us the right way to do things, and ensured even we we felt challenged we were always safe. After descending, which is tricky too for novices, he went back to make sure people still on the mountain got down safe as it was getting dark. Klemen is fit, and will be able to match any pace you can go. He’s happy to answer questions and can alter the route as required (we went down the mule route for parts to avoid scrambling sections). On the morning, when we saw people climbing up Triglav we noted how the conditions were different and how tricky it would have been to pass other groups. We were very glad to have climbed it the day before, plus it made the evening a lot more relaxing and allowed a few celebratory beers. Klemen even brought us for tea/coffee after we got to the bottom and had lent me mountain boots as well as providing tape, after I had got blisters from walking. Unless you’re familiar with climbing Triglav, I would definitely recommend a guide. You get so much more out of it, learning and adventure wise, but mostly safety wise. Talking to Klemen you realise how experienced he is in terms of climbing, how much he loves the mountains, how he’s taught his kids climbing and skiing, and how well he is respected. Klemen knows many mountains well, especially the Alps (climbed Mount Blanc over 60 times). Triglav is spectacular, and we’d definitely recommend getting a guide and there’s no better guide than Klemen. ps we looked at a few providers, and Explore Share were not only best value (price wise) but they were also great at keeping in touch and re-assuring us that we could make it to the top. A great service. Thanks
We were four guys and enjoyed the trip very much. Beautiful scenery and the guide took good care of us and we felt safe all the way to the top and back.
