    The ascent of Triglav takes us up the East Ridge, over Mali Triglav (little Triglav) towards the summit. The trail follows the ridgeline for most of the way. There are some quite exposed sections where we have to use the harnesses, which are attached to the fixed ropes.

Essential Info

Visas

Slovenia

Most European nationals, and nationals of Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada do not require a visa for Slovenia.

Vaccinations

Slovenia

There are no specific health risks.

Eating and Drinking

All breakfasts and 2 dinners included.

Lunches are not included and can be bought en route in the mountain huts we pass each day. Hut breakfasts are usually made up of: bread, jam, cheese with tea, coffee etc.

Dinner is usually two courses consisting of traditional Slovenian alpine food (for example - goulash, spaghetti, or alpine stew followed by fruit, pudding, strudel or pancakes).

For vegetarians there is a little less variety, vegans even more so, but this shouldn't lead to anyone going hungry. Please inform sales at the time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.

Weather

Slovenia has a mixed alpine climate with summer temperatures in the range of 18 to 25ºC. In the mountains cool mornings are normally followed by warm pleasant days, with temperatures in the Alps being ideal for walking. During summer months afternoon showers of rain cool down the humidity, giving way to clear skies and pleasant temperatures.

Is this trip for you?

Walking level: 5 - challenging. This is a short trek with only 2 full days of walking, however the level is challenging and you should be confident in your fitness and ability to complete the ascent of Mount Triglav: a non-technical 'via ferrata' and exciting scramble with some element of exposure. You do not need previous experience but a head for heights and sure-footedness are essential. The trails in the Triglav National Park are generally well marked but can vary underfoot; the path will be uneven at times with loose stones. Fixed alpine ropes provided by the Alpine Association of Slovenia are found on trails when the ascent / descent may be steep. You will need to carry your overnight bag to the mountain hut. However the night high in these limestone mountains more than makes up for the extra effort.
