Climbing Mt. Triglav is a longstanding Slovene tradition. It involves a perfect combination of physical challenges, spectacular views, and pride that comes with standing on this symbolically important summit. If you possess a decent amount of stamina and the desire to reach higher, then ascending Triglav is something you simply must try. There’s no hiking adventure quite like it!

At 2,863 m (or 9,395 ft), Triglav towers above the other peaks of Slovenia’s Julian Alps. Not only is it the most popular mountain, the climb up to its peak is among the most pleasurable. Although many alpine enthusiasts tackle Triglav’s slopes during the high season, our expert guides know the best trails off the beaten path. You can avoid the crowds and enjoy the striking mountain backdrop and the local wildlife to the fullest. Don’t be surprised if a chamois or marmot strides into very close proximity indeed.  

This classic Triglav ascent begins in the lovely Krma Valley*. Known as the easiest approach, it’s a relatively undemanding route, suitable for families and hikers with limited mountaineering experience. However, a solid level of fitness is required. Gorgeous scenes of unspoilt alpine terrain are revealed as we gain altitude above the treeline, up gravel paths and over stony ridges to the Planika Lodge. It’s where we will spend the night in the super romantic embrace of the powerful mountains. 

Depending on your preparedness and weather conditions, the final push to the summit can take place the same afternoon or early the following morning. Your guide will lead you up the steep incline, which includes a 400 m via ferrata trail. Don’t worry, it’s all very safe and secure, but you will have to do some climbing. Reaching the top is a triumphant feeling that will definitely keep your spirits high for the panoramic descent into civilisation below. And don’t be surprised if you want to do it all over again. Trust us, it’s a common aftereffect among Triglav hikers. It’s just that awesome!

NOTE: It can be busy up there in the summer. To ensure your spot in the lodge, we recommend booking the tour several weeks in advance, especially for the weekends. For last-minute bookings, we cannot guarantee a free spot in the lodge, but we will try our best or find the most suitable alternative for you.

Distance: 18 km (11,2 mi)
Elevation: 1800 vm (5900 feet)

*Different starting point possible upon request on a private tour.

Itinerary

We will start our tour by picking you up and driving to Krma valley (45min from Bled). Our meeting time depends on the forecast and time of the year and will be set a day or two before the tour. After a quick gear check, we will start walking in the forest, slowly starting to gain altitude before reaching a small pasture with a freshwater spring after about 2.5h. After a short break, another 2.5 hours of hiking awaits us before reaching the mountain hut Kredarica.

At the hut, we can leave some stuff we will not need for the summit push and gear up with helmets, harnesses and via ferrata sets. The summit climb takes around 1.5h and about the same time back to the hut. According to the weather and how we feel, we can do the summit climb on the first day in the afternoon or on the second day early in the morning. 

From Kredarica we have about 3.5h of hiking back to the car, where we arrive usually sometime in the middle of the second day.

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.

It is important that your clothes are comfortable. You should have comfortable shoes with a good grip. It is recommended that you also have some warmer and windproof clothing with you as the temperature can drop or in case of cold wind. You can always leave excess clothes in the van after consulting with our guide.

You should take at least 1.5 liters of water per person since there is a freshwater spring on the way to the hut, where you can buy bottled water and other drinks. You should also have a few snacks and energy bars that will hold you up until the hut below Triglav.

In case of bad weather the tour can be postponed or you will be fully refunded.

The season stated is informative. In case of dry conditions, the tour is also possible sooner or later in the year. If there is early or late snow in the mountains the season is shorter. I that case take a look at our Triglav in winter tour.

We will make a reservation at the hut for you at the time of your booking in advance and you can pay cash on the spot. There are rooms available if you book early enough, otherwise, there are cheaper dormitories – let us know your preferred option. For half-board, having about 70 € with you per night per person should be enough.

We believe that your experience will be better in smaller groups. Therefore, there will be a maximum of 4 guests per guide.

You don’t need any prior experience for the tour, however, you should be comfortable with two full days of hiking with breaks.

Our tours are led by professional local guides. Our guides will make sure that you receive expert guiding combined with great fun and a memorable experience.

Our minimum age for Triglav tour is 12 years old. Children should be able to hike for two full days with stops. If you are planning to go on a tour with young kids, please let us know in advance and we can adjust the tour if necessary.
