Via Ferrata trips – Bovec

From the peaks of the Julian Alps to the forests, rivers and lakes of Triglav National Park, a Via ferrata trip around Bovec is the best way to see them all!

Bovec is a small town in northwestern Slovenia, very close to the border with Italy. Nestled in the beautiful Soca Valley, it’s the ideal place to head for an adventure in nature, enjoying the turquoise waters of the Soca river and the majestic peaks of this section of Triglav National Park. Montaz (2754 m) —the second highest peak in the Julian Alps after Mt Triglav— and Mount Mangart (2679 m) are two big attractions for mountain lovers. Both of these peaks have amazing via ferrata routes. In the case of Mt Mangart, there’s a via ferrata in the Slovenian side and another one in the Italian side. This is a great opportunity of reaching the summits of two major peaks in the Julian Alps, while enjoying an extraordinary mountain landscape!

What People Say


Brilliant day of adventure. Blaz is an excellent guide, we felt really safe the whole time. Plus he was full
of knowledge about the local area. I would recommend him to anyone, especially if you have kids.
We are an active couple in or late 50s and always wanted to do a via ferrata. Of course
we were concerned that we would be physically unprepared for the trip. The web description, including time of travel was very accurate. The pacing by the guide was excellent and adapted to our speed. The amount of training and oversight was just right for our level of experience. The trip was amazing, a bucket list item. We were able to access extreme terrain with large exposure in a very safe manor. We were comfortable a all time on terrain that, with out the ferrata system, could only be safely accessed by experienced climbers using protection. I highly recommend this trip and guide.
