This one-day tour takes you from the valley of Krma to Triglavski dom na Kredarici (2515 m), the highest located mountain lodge in Slovenia. From the start in the spruce forests of the glacial valley, your view of the land will widen with every meter of elevation you gain, all seaming reachable because of the white snow cover.

Because this winter fairy-tale wouldn’t be complete without it, your eye will soon notice a hut close to the top of this white expanse. It is your destination, the Kredarica hut, one of the most easily reached places in the Julian Alps in winter at this altitude. After taking in all the view your eyes can handle, the best part of the tour can begin –  a long descent of pure skiing bliss. The route is never too steep, which makes the 1500 metres of elevation loss even more enjoyable.

Snow conditions are often optimal, as the tour takes place on the southern slopes of the mountains. That is especially true for late winter or early spring when the snow is perfect. Depending on the amount of snow in the winter, it can also be done at the beginning of the season or very late in the spring.

Still, your safety is our top priority, which means that the tour will commence only if the conditions are right. Our guide will ensure that there is no danger of avalanches, on the day of your tour. He will also inform you about all the necessary equipment for the day, as crampons and an ice axe are often needed.

For a truly epic end of the adventure, we can take you to the top of Mt. Triglav. The way ahead from the hut is too steep for skis, so you’ll have to go on foot. Crampons and ice axe are mandatory here, as well as some previous experience using them.

So put on your skis and get ready for this epic ski tour through the most spectacular winter landscape!

Frequently Asked Questions

How good of a skier do I need to be?

Most terrains are not demanding and suitable for most skiers who are confident to ski on their own and have basic experience and skills. The tour is not suitable for beginner skiers and first-time tour skiers.

What is the conditions are bad?

The tour is only possible in favourable conditions, in stable weather and without avalanche danger. If the conditions do not allow for a safe tour, it can be rescheduled or adjusted.

Do I need a guide to climb Triglav?

Triglav is a high and demanding mountain, not to be underestimated. Tricky route finding in the fog, exposed and steep terrain in the upper parts are some of the reasons to consider a guide. We only work with experienced local guides who know our mountains really well and will not only take care of your safety, but will also show you some new hiking and climbing techniques, share some interesting facts and stories, and overall make it a much more enjoyable experience. Of course, not everybody needs a guide, so for those more experienced among you we have more than a few advanced tours that will prove challenging, even in the company of an expert guide.

Is it crowded up there?

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.

Is it dangerous to climb Mt. Triglav?

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.

What kind of accommodations are available?

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.

How far in advance do we need to book it?

The earlier the better. The highest season, from July to September, it is not unusual for huts to be fully booked for 5 or more weekends ahead. Weekdays are better but we still suggest bookings at least 2-3 weeks 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. For one-day tours, a week in advance is okay.

    1500 vertical meters of pure joy, as we descended back to the valley in perfect spring snow! The ascent is not too hard, the track is beaten and the incline is gradual so you quite quickly gain the altitude and reach the hut. The hut is "kind of" open so you can get a hot tea or cold beer, sunbathe a bit on the porch and wait for the snow to get in perfect condition for skiing. The rented equipment provided by Triglavtours was great, high quality, and very personalized to my needs. Thank you for making my day with this tour!

    A great day in the mountains with Luka. I have done a Triglav climb before and really liked that I could come and see how Kredarica looks in winter. The hike up was not too demanding and skiing down was pleasant. We were a bit unlucky with foggy conditions in the bottom part but it was all worth it when we gained enough altitude to get above the fog - what a view. Hopefully next time I come for the 3-day traverse!

    I am not much of a skier so I have decided to do this with a guide. The tour well exceed my expectations and I feel privileged to be able to ski such good terrains with a great guy as Bine is. He showed me a great portion of the Julian Alps and gave me tips to improve my skiing as well as climbing techniques. Even though the conditions were not perfect (the snow was a bit heavy) I have enjoyed every minute of it. It is well worth going up there for the sole view, the skiing is just an icing on the cake.
