Description

Climbing Mt Triglav during the winter season is an incredible experience only reserved for a few. Come with me for a challenging 2-day ascent!

Mount Triglav (2864 m) is the highest peak in Slovenia and also the greatest symbol of the country. It lies inside Triglav National Park, at the heart of the beautiful Julian Alps.

This peak attracts many climbers during spring and summer. However, this time I invite you to join me on a more demanding winter ascent.

Our starting point will be Krma Valley. From there, a strenuous hike (between 5 and 7 hours) will lead us to Kredarica hut.

The hut will be our shelter for the night as well as the place that will provide us food and drink.

The following day, we'll start hiking right after breakfast. We'll first climb Mali Triglav (the smallest peak, also known as Little Triglav) and then approach the main summit. On the top we'll find the famous monument Aljaž Turret.

Finally, a quite difficult hike will bring us back to Krma Valley by the afternoon.

Are you ready for a winter adventure in the most popular peak in Slovenia? Please, contact me so we can start planning this trip together!

In case you're staying longer, you can't miss this 6-day winter mountaineering and alpine climbing course in the Julian Alps (it also includes climbing Triglav).

Itinerary

Day 1: Krma Valley / Kredarica hut

The tour starts in the Krma Valley, from where Kredarica is reached in 5.5-7 hours. The hut will provide well-deserved food, drink and shelter.

Day 2: Triglav summit / Krma Valley

After breakfast, we’ll climb Mali (Little) Triglav, from where an attractive ridge will take us to the main summit with its famous Aljaž Turret. We’ll return to the Krma Valley in the late afternoon hours.

About the guide

I am a Slovenian IFMGA mountain guide with the ZGVS.
It was when I was 12 years old that I first climbed a mountain myself and by the age of 15 I had started rock climbing.
Since then, my ascents count up to around 1000, starting from Mont Blanc in the seventies and Triglav north face to Cho Oyu, and all over South America including 18 of the 6000m+ peaks including a first ascent on south face of Aconcagua.

I have climbed and travelled all over the world, Shivlinga, K2, Mt Everest, Manaslu, Shishi Panama, El Cap and sport climbing in Kalymnos and Cuba.

Skiing powder in great conditions and rock climbing under the sun are my motto!

Contact me if you'd like to have fun safely in the mountains with me! If I am unavailable then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Milan, can take care of you!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
