Winter ascents are the most demanding and the most rewarding mountaineering adventures. Tackling the North Face of Triglav isn’t only doable in winter, it’s nothing short of a climber’s delight. The legendary Slovene Route across the giant Wall is always an excellent choice, and winter gives it that additional charm and great respect among alpinists. Grab your ice axes and join us on this exclusive wintertime expedition!

Dating back to the 19th century, the Slovene Route has become a highly praised climbing route among Slovenes and foreign mountaineers alike. The route’s difficulty level might not be extremely high, but during winter, the ascent certainly requires a considerable amount of prior climbing experience and psychophysical preparedness. This includes the use of ice axes and crampons. As any expert climber will tell you: Good judgement comes from experience.

Given the right weather conditions, the Slovene Route supplies sufficiently hard snow, offering a superb basis for a speedy and effective ascent. Equipped with ice axes and crampons, you will scale the rugged terrain using a climbing rope. Your guide will make sure that the maximum of two climbers will feel safe and secure as they take on the steep drops, so no prior knowledge of rope techniques is required. 

We approach the Wall in approx. 1.5 hours’ time, depending on the snow conditions. The latter may of course alter the schedule considerably. Then it’s 800 metres of intense climbing the gully, accompanied with fantastic views. The overall duration of our winter tours is highly dependent on snow conditions. The guide will let you know a couple of days in advance what kind of climbing and hiking can be expected given the current weather conditions.

Interesting fact: Tone Pogačnik, a Slovene Olympian and cross-country skier, was training on the Triglav Glacier in April 1946, when he accidentally skied off the edge of the North Wall in the fog, jumped, and landed on the Slovene Route 100 metres below. He walked away unscathed.

NOTE: The tour can also be extended into a two-day ascent to the summit of Mt. Triglav per request.

I went on the Triglav Winter tour with a friend, and guided by Klemen, in December 2023. The hike was absolutely fantastic! Beautiful views and an exciting climb up to the top. Klemen was incredbily helpful with any questions we had beforehand, and he was a wonderful guide all the way up. This hike was the best part of our Slovenia trip!! Thanks Klemen!

Excellent experience with Triglav Tours and especially my guide Bine! I did the 1 night/2 day hike up Triglav in mid October and everything exceeded my expectations. Bine's a legend - very knowledgeable, friendly, and confident in assessing the groups experience levels. He had to spend a bit more time with a member of our party who needed rope assistance on some parts of the climb and the extra work he had to put in didn't slow us down at all, very professional. Would definitly book a tour again, cheers!

I went on a 2 day tour with Luka and Luka. We were very fortunate with the weather but despite that both Luka’s were exceptional. Could not recommend them more highly. Ultimate professionals. The organisation from Tina to the guides was first rate. I would not hesitate to recommend them or use them for future adventures. 😃

I completed my Triglav 2 days tour in September of 2023 starting at Rudno Polje and it was the best experience of this year summer season. Miha is quite a professional and intelligent guide who perfectly estimates the strengths and weaknesses of the team he guides, weather forecast and other circumstances like how dense would be expected traffic at via ferrata sections on the way out and back and to plan the tour accordingly. Not to mention he is a wonderful interlocutor with a deep knowledge of the area and mountains in general. I'd definitely recommend both the company and the guide.

Exceptional “Panorama 3 day Hike to Pokjuka Plateau” October 6-8. Stayed first night at Hotel Jelka (which I highly recommend) because Blejska hut was fully booked. The hotel is a nice option as it has been fully renovated and is close to the hut but offers hot showers and a private room! Second night was at Uskovnica hut which could use updating but offers lots of outdoor patio space, hot & cold running water and indoor flush toilets, much appreciated. It is accessible to day hikers so busy mid afternoon on a sunny Sunday! My guide Klemen, was incredibly knowledgeable, attentive, helpful and kind! Every detail of our route was carefully planned to make the experience perfect for me. Assistance was generously offered and accepted through rough scree coming down from the shoulder. Pace and snack breaks were set to meet my needs exactly and Klemen is a super friendly person. I was alerted about dangerous karst crevices and places where there were steep steps and tricky spots to navigate. All of which made my experience stress-free and fun, as well as extremely safe. I can’t find enough words to express how much I recommend Triglav Tours and particularly my guide Klemen Gerbec. Triglav National Park is spectacular- don’t miss it!

My friends and I did a 3 day hut-to-hut hike in Triglav National Park this summer and loved it! Our guide, Bine, was very knowledgeable and provided necessary equipment and fun facts through the hike. We really enjoyed the via ferrata experience and we were happy to have someone guide us through the more technical aspects. The overnights in the huts were a blast with our guide and the other girls on our tour as well. Great way to see Triglav National park and meet new people! I cannot recommend Triglav tours enough!!
