FAQs: Via Ferrata in Slovenia

What should I know about Via Ferrata Slovenia?

Nestled into the Julian Alps in the northwestern region of this small central European nation, Triglav National Park is an excellent destination for any via ferrata adventure.

The most remote part of the park is easily reached in two hours from the capital. It is fairly easy to get to via taxi or bus, but many guides include transport in their packages.

Once you arrive in the national park, there is a plethora of options from which to choose ranging from single day climbs to some of the park’s smaller peaks all the way to three-day climbs of Mount Triglav, the nation’s highest peak.

In this mountainous region of the country there is plenty to see and via ferrata can quickly and easily take you to the heights from which to enjoy the best views the country has to offer.

Why should I choose Slovenia for my Via Ferrata adventure?

Everyone can do it

Via ferrata is an excellent sport for family as well as groups of friends and Triglav National Park is a great place to try it out. Basic instruction can be provided the day of the climb and spectacular views are only a few hours of climbing away! If you are more advanced, no need to worry, there are tougher via ferrata here too.

**Stunning scenery **

The scenery here looks like it could come off the pages of a calendar. The Julian Alps lend themselves to scenic views both from the base of the climb all the way to the top. Once you’ve summitted whatever peak you are climbing on the ‘iron route’ be sure to take in the spectacular views of mountains, forests and lakes that stretches out below.

Come for the culture

When you’re not out climbing on the ‘iron route’ enjoy some of the country’s impressive culture. From the capital’s baroque architecture - where every Slovene adventure begins - to the numerous wineries and olive groves that dot the idyllic countryside, there is plenty to keep you occupied even when you are not out climbing.

Loved Slovenia and would highly recommend for those who enjoy the outdoors and walking. The via ferrata route was great for a morning hike. Stunning views and not too hard which was good given the heat that day. Our guide Borut (replaced by Gregor at the last minute as I had misjudged our dates so very much appreciated it) was lovely and made our trip even better.

Hi, We had a great climb with Matevz on the Hanz route - we knew we were in good hands and he kept a good pace and made sure we were taken care of on the way up. The climb was quite steep and a little scary but it helped knowing we were secured by a rope so an exhilirating day overall. We loved it!

Blaz is the perfect guide. He kept us safe and made us feel comfortable on 4 very different via ferratas. He allowed us to climb at the limit we were comfortable with. His knowledge of history and landmarks was amazing. We enjoyed his company so much that he is the only guide I would consider on a return visit. Thanks Blaz for two great days of climbing!

Blas was great! He was really patient with us amateurs, never rushed us and even on the way down the mountain constantly slowed dow/stopped to allow everyone to catch up. For 2 people in our group Ferratas are new and they both fell in love with it! We will definitely be back and can’t wait to have Blas as our guide again!
