Mount Triglav Slovenia: 2,864m

 

 Price includes a free scrambling day in the Lake District



A chance to climb Slovenia’s highest peak, mount Triglav, in the Julian Alps, which are the eastern outpost of the Alpine range that stretches across southern central Europe, the Julian Alps gets it’s name from the roman emperor Julius Caesar, who founded the municipium of Cividale del Friuli at the foot of the mountains.

The Julian Alps really are the unsung mountains of Europe. The route we will be taking up to the summit, is the recommended ‘best’ way to the summit. This is possibly because the valley we start in is regarded as one if not the most beautiful of all the valleys in the area.


  

Accommodation:

We will be using mountain huts whilst on the trip; these are warm and comfortable with bunk style beds. The lounge has a wood burning stove and provides a range of meals to choose from in the evening. There is a bar and a small tuck shop also. On the last night we will be staying in a well earned hotel, for a chance to relax have a drink and take in the culture before returning home.

Equipment:

You will be expected to bring your own personal outdoor clothing. A full kit list will be sent to you on booking. There will be an option to buy (at a reduced price) or hire via ferrata equipment that is needed for the the last few hundred meters to the summit. If you’ve never used this before don’t panic! Full training will be given.


Travel:

Cheap flights are available from Ryanair to Trieste Italy, and other flights may be available. Transport will be provided whilst in Slovenia.

  

Fitness & Experience:

This trek is very diverse and includes walking at high altitude on ridges where the weather can suddenly change for the worse and is mostly designed for good walkers with previous mountain walking experience. However, for the seasoned walkers with experience, this holiday provides a memorable challenge and will take you to a pristine area in one of the most under-developed parts of the European Alps. If you have never been to Slovenia this trip provides an ideal opportunity to summit the country's highest peak and capture the region before it becomes a major destination.
