Tour description

Winter in Slovenia commonly lasts from December to mid-March, whereas in the Alps is even longer, snow could fall from November to mid-May. It may be pretty harsh within the mountains, with temperatures around 20°C beneath 0 or even less and with 2 to 5 meters of snow. So, if you are making plans to do some winter trekking in the Alps, you should know at least the basics, such as how to move in winter conditions, avalanches awareness and orientation in snow conditions. Furthermore, if you are planning to climb higher peaks additionally how to use crampons and ice ax.

Mt Triglav is the highest Slovenian mountain and the most popular hiking destination for lots of travelers in the summertime, but these days, people are deciding to climb it also during wintertime. And remember that what is trivial in the summer, turns into an exciting challenge in the winter. Mt Triglav climb in winter is not the easiest one of course, but also not the most technically demanding climb if you have a few experiences with mountaineering.

The best time to do it is from February to April while snow conditions are more stable, snow is thicker and a possibility for avalanches smaller. Of course don’t do it right after a heavy snowfall, while there is a red alarm for avalanches.

If you want to do it in one day, it is possible, however, you must be thoroughly prepared, with a high level of fitness and quite a few mountaineering experiences. And remember, days are short! But to do it in two days is more pleasant and much easier. However, the only option for getting a place to sleep and eat is at the highest Slovenian mountain hut Triglavski Dom na Kredarici ( 2515 m). Don’t expect luxury as the hut is officially closed during winter, but meteorologists are taken care of it and you can get a bed, blanket, and a warm meal. Yet there is no warming, therefore, you need to bring your own sleeping bag.

The safest way to climb Mt Triglav in winter season is with a professional guide, who will give you the representation of how to use crampons, ice ax and as well maximum safety needed for your ascent. If you need anything before the tour, you can find that here … 

Make the most of your time here and climb Mt Triglav with a guide. We have private guides available for winter climbing on any day of the week throughout the season. So get in touch to check our availability and make a booking.

Itinerary

Day 1Krma valley (930 m) - Kredarica (2515 m)

Plan approximately 6-7 hours to attain the hut, 2 hours more to reach the top and 7 hours for descending back to the valley. The first 6-7 hours is regular hiking/walking and depends on the snow, but probably won’t require an ice ax and crampons on this part. Poles and gaiters are very recommended though. Especially the remaining part before the hut called Kalvarija, is very difficult to orientate and you might feel that you are pushing your limits.

Day 2Kredarica (2515 m) - Mt. Triglav (2864 m) - descent to the valley

Once you reach the hut, by far the most difficult part follows, which can be more climbing than hiking. Ice Axe and crampons are obligatory, you may possibly feel safer with a harness and self-belaying system. However, in case you don’t have any experience with mountain climbing this part is highly not advisable.
