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  – ski touring Slovenia at its finest!

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.

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.

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.
