Description of Triglav hiking tour

Ever wanted to stand on the top of the world? Standing on the summit of Mount Triglav will make you feel exactly like that. The stunning views will be more than worth the effort of the climb on this 2-day experience.

At 2,863 metres (or 9,395 ft), Triglav stands above the many peaks of the beautiful Slovenian Alps. As a symbol of Slovenia, it is said that you’re not a true Slovenian until you reach Triglav's peak. But if you’re not a local and climb Triglav, you can become an honorary “citizen” overnight.

Since it is a popular mountain, you can often run into traffic, especially during high season. This is where our expert guides come in - they know how to get you off the beaten path, so you can avoid the crowds and enjoy the striking mountain scenery.

But the view isn’t the only highlight of this trip. You might be able to spot some of the famous mountain wildlife like the chamois and the marmot that are known to come quite close to you hikers if you don’t scare them away.

Most of the route is easy and not technically demanding, except for the upper part where your safety will be taken care of by our experienced guide. It takes two full days of hiking and a solid level of fitness is required.

The hike up Mount Triglav was super fun. Our guide was fantastic and the climb itself wasn’t too demanding. Although certain parts of the climb can seem a bit intimidating, I’m an amateur hiker and had no problems getting to the top. The views on the way and from the summit are stunning. Go for it!

Climbing Slovenia’s highest mountain may sound incredibly challenging, but it’s not that demanding at all. That said, you should have a fair bit of physical fitness. The guide took us up a very scenic and doable path and we made a number of stops. Sleeping in the mountain hut near the top was also a cool experience. If you want to conquer Mt. Triglav, I really recommend this guided trip.

I became a true Slovene because I got on the top of mount Triglav. The journey isn’t too hard. Friendly guide, great climbing… At the hut was nice food and panorama of mountains really great!! You must persist a little but you will get reward at the end of your climb…
