Escape to Bohinj

Climbing Triglav

Climbing Triglav, Slovenia’s highest mountain at 2864m, is fantastic.

Expect breath-taking views, demanding hiking and some pretty exposed sections. It is recommended that you take a helmet and via ferrata gear so that you can clip onto the cables on the more exposed sections. Triglav is a multi-day hike, giving the opportunity to enjoy wonderful Slovene mountain hospitality. The final ascent along the ridge is not for the faint-hearted.

The southern approach of Triglav starts in Stara Fužina, literally 50m from the door of Escape to Bohinj Holiday House. It’s a long 2-day, or more leisurely 3-day hike, and you can make it a circuit by returning via the Triglav Lakes. There are several mountains huts to stay in (“Dom” or “Koča” in Slovene), all of which offer a warm welcome at the end of a long day’s hike.

The best time of year to climb Triglav is between July and September, when there is least likely to be snow on the path. It is best to book huts in advance – the tourist information centres can do this for you. You can also climb Triglav with one of Bohinj’s experienced guides.
