Triglav National Park

Named after our highest mountain, Triglav National Park is the only one of its kind in Slovenia and one of the oldest in Europe. Its 840 km2 translates to 4% of Slovenia’s territory and a huge portion of the country’s Julian Alps. Established in 1981, the park’s beautiful mountainous landscape with its sharp ridges, high karst plateaus, glacier-made valleys, deep ravines and crystal-clear waters is over 200 million years old and home to over 7,000 animal species and 1,600 types of plants.

Characterised by pristine waters and forests, towering mountains, scenic valleys and rich cultural heritage, Triglav National Park is a wonderland of outdoor activities and places to see. The park offers a multitude of pastimesbut hiking in Triglav National Park is undoubtedly the favourite among its visitors. The extremely broad network of trails, including those that lead up Mt. Triglav itself, is simply begging to be explored and reveal its milliards of natural treasures.

Triglav mountain

Standing the test of time proudly at 2864 metres, Triglav is the highest mountain in Slovenia and the Julian Alps. The literal translation of its name means the “three-headed”, although all three peaks can only be seen from the southeast. Triglav is more than a mountain, it’s the symbol of Slovenia. Depicted on the country’s flag and coat of arms, every true Slovene has to climb Triglav at least once in their lifetime. Or so the saying goes.

Ever since it was first conquered in 1778, ascending to the top of this beast of a mountain has only grown in popularity, with now over 80,000 hikers reaching the summit each year. The peak’s famous landmark, Aljaž Tower, a small iron storm shelter and triangulation point, was commissioned by priest, mountaineer and patriot Jakob Aljaž in 1895. Today, the tower is another addition to Triglav’s incredible significance to our country and the steadfast reminder to anyone who reaches the top: “You now stand on the very roof of Slovenia. Embrace it!”

Things to know

Although Triglav is not the most difficult mountain to climb in Slovenia, it still requires a certain level of experience.

Climbing Triglav without the experience (or someone who has it) with moving in exposed and steep terrain, route-finding, and knowing the local weather conditions can lead to dangerous consequences — getting lost, seriously injuring oneself, or in the worst case, death. What’s 100% sure is that your hike won’t be half as enjoyable as it could have been.

A professional local guide has all the necessary experience and knowledge to make your hike safer and therefore, more enjoyable. They can also enhance the climbing experience with interesting stories and tips, making sure climbing Triglav is a fond memory.

Triglav is amongst the most popular mountains in Slovenia. It has a great symbolic value for us and the saying goes that you are not a true Slovenian until you stand on its summit. Therefore, you can expect a lot of people on the mountain in the high season (July-September), especially on weekends. On week-days, however, it is much more peaceful. Luckily, our guides have some tricks up their sleeves when it comes to avoiding the crowds. Hint: they know exactly when and where to go.

Thousands of people climb Mt.Triglav every year. Some come better prepared than others, who underestimate the climb, which can lead to accidents. But with the right approach, knowing the weather conditions (especially the possibility of thunderstorms and snowfall), with the proper safety equipment and an experienced guide, you can minimize the objective dangers and feel completely safe.

Mountain huts in the Slovenian mountains are very cosy and authentic, but provide only basic comfort. Don’t expect too much luxury. Early bookings are usually rewarded with a room but if all rooms are full there are dormitories. There is no shower and the lavatories are basic. There is running water but it is not drinkable. The food is tasty and local but the menu is limited to a few dishes and drinks.

The earlier the better. The highest season, from July to September, it is not unusual for huts to be fully booked for months ahead. Weekdays are better but we still suggest bookings at least a month in advance. Last-minute bookings are very dependable on the weather – if the forecast is not a perfect bluebird, then some spots usually become available a few days before.
