FOR SLOVENIANS, TRIGLAV IS MORE THAN JUST A MOUNTAIN.

For the Slovenians Triglav is more than just a mountain. Triglav is a national symbol, the pride of the nation, a “must climb” for every mountaineer. Triglav, located in the heart of the Triglav national park, is a ruler of the Julian Alps, a pointy mountain made up of white limestone. It will capture your heart and leave you with an unforgettable experience.

While it is possible to climb the mountain in only a few days we've created a trip that not only gets you to the top but introduces you to mountain skills over 5 days. We want you to not only have a memorable adventure but leave with the confidence and knowledge to tackle bigger mountains across the world. Our Triglav trip provides that in spades!

YOUR ADVENTURE STARTS HERE

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Anyone with a sense of adventure and a good level of endurance fitness. Previous mountaineering experience is a bonus, but not necessary as we teach all required skills during the trip.
However good physical coordination and an ability to pick up new skills is crucial to success on Triglav.

While this course is open to beginner mountaineers, please note that that doesn’t mean it’s physically easy – making sure you have a good base fitness level before you get here as it will make the week feel less strenuous and maximise your chances of success.
Not sure whether you're ready? No sweat! Drop us a note and we'll be happy to talk it through with you.

OUR TRIGLAV ACCOMMODATION

When not climbing the mountain we know the importance of having a comfortable base. That's why we've chosen this mountain lodge with its super comfortable rooms and warm atmosphere. The perfect spot to rest up in-between your stays in the mountain huts. But don't let that nice linen and chocolate on the bed win your favour just yet. Wait until you've experienced a good old mountain hut with its basic, but charming amenities and friendly hosts. We bet you go home missing the huts more!

They like to share their knowledge of the mountains and their experiences, so don’t hesitate to ask questions and pick their brains. Lastly, they know the routes on Triglav like the back of their hands and this is the most important thing when it comes down to making key decisions in the mountains and providing the safest experience for our clients.

In short, no. Whilst we will always strive to get you to the summit safely, sometimes the weather or the conditions of the mountain don’t play ball. When there is precipitation, high winds and low visibility for example, we cannot guarantee reaching the summit and will sometimes recommend an alternative. Each Triglav course has a lead guide. The lead guide will always conduct a meeting with the clients and other guides the day before the ascent is due to begin. During this meeting the latest weather forecast, conditions of the mountain, and the clients own ability to reach the summit will be discussed. Clients and guides alike will voice their opinions and/or concerns at the time and then decide how best to proceed. We fully trust our guides to make these final decisions based on their years of experience on the mountain. They are entrusted to make the final call and the client must accept any decision made. All decisions will have client safety as a top priority.

Fede

Lead IFMGA

"My favorite mountain is the Midi d’Ossau, in the Pyrenees. It is a volcanic and unique mountain, that a stands out from the other peaks around. It is a huge fortress with many different features that provides incredible rock climbing routes, and the most important thing is that is 20 minutes from my house ;)"

Jon

Lead IFMGA

"If asked about my favourite mountain or mountain range, it wouldn't be easy to answer since perfect places to climb, ski or explore can be found all over the world. But, if I had to choose one, I think I'd say the Pyrenees, not very high, but wild and still quite unknown: the mountains where I learnt when I was a child and where I can still live great adventures far from the crowd".
