Inquiry

This is one of the more authentic Slovenian mountain lodges, and it is surrounded by incredible views in all directions. It’s located at the halfway point between the Triglav Lakes Lodge and the Dolič Mountain Hut, and it’s also a very convenient resting spot for hikers coming from Trenta. We stop at the Prehodavci hut on our Triglav hut to hut tour.

The mighty Kanjavec mountain lies between the Zasavje Lodge and Dolič. We can drive around this peak across the Hribarica mountain pass on the south or the Kanjavec Northern Ledges (Kanjavčeve police) which is one of the most exposed paths in our mountains. This path is named Pot Mire Marko Debelakove, after a leading Slovenian female mountaineer, and is only appropriate for the most experienced and skilled hikers. But the climb on Kanjavec is quite the opposite, as the peak can be reached by one of the least demanding routes you can find in Slovenian mountains, at least at this altitude. The only thing to remember is to plan your hike in nice weather – you really don’t want to get caught in the fog.

The lodge can accommodate 40 people and has 40 seats in its dining room and in front of the lodge.

Things to know

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.
