TRIGLAV 2864 m
Triglav is the highest summit in Slovenia at 2864 metres. It is also the highest summit in the Julian Alps. This trip is a rare treat to sample some of the best that Slovenia has to offer in a short space of time. Swim in the beautiful lake Bled, climb the highest mountain and explore a historic capital city. All in a long weekend.
We also offer mountain guiding on the huge north face of Mt Triglav. This is done in a maximum of 1:2 ratio as the rock climbing is a mile long and requires previous climbing skills, knowledge and experience. Get in touch for more information on the north face climb.
NEXT SLOVENIA TRIP DATES: 16th – 19th August 2019
Triglav 4 day trip: This is an action packed trip designed to get the most out of your time off. You’ll stay in the picturesque town of Bled, in a high mountain hut on Triglav 2864 m and in the historic old city of Ljubljana. Triglav is the highest summit in Slovenia. Although Triglav is not as high as some of its alpine neighbours, this peak makes up for that in interest. The path to the summit involves exciting scrambling sections throughout. Via ferrata equipment will be worn and your guide will explain how to use these. You don’t need to be an experienced rock climber to enjoy this trip but good all round fitness, plus a head for heights is required.
Triglav North Face Climbing: The north face of Triglav is huge at over a mile high. The rock climbing on this face requires considerable fitness and a good knowledge of traditional climbing techniques. I’ve written an article about climbing the north face of Triglav – click here

WHAT CLIENTS SAY
What an epic day. Dave gave us an amazing day on Wintours leap. We covered more than I could have hoped. Dave understood exactly what our objectives of the day were, excellent value for money. Dave was the most professional, and clearly knew his stuff.
Dave and his team hosted Noah’s Ark Charity Dangle event Sunday 16th October 2016 from Newport Transporter Bridge and we couldn’t have picked a better team of instructors to help us..
All of the guides were extremely supportive and had the groups best interest at the forefront of everything we did, they were also very knowledgeable about the mountains and what lay ahead of us. This is the first time we have used Dave but definitely not the last!
Dave and Robyn guided a group of us to four 4000+m peaks in the Atlas Mountains, including Toubkal – the highest in North Africa. They were always full of energy and continually kept the team motivated. You were never in doubt that they were fully prepared for all eventualities, using ropes when required and even having a foam roller for those of us with tight muscles! On top of this, they were always teaching us important mountain skills, with demonstrations and giving everyone the chance to practice these skills in a safe and fun but relevant environment. I also thought they were excellent at tailoring the experience to different peoples wants and needs.
Without a doubt my favourite adventure holiday of the year – i’m already looking to book another one with Dave in the New year!
Highly recommended 🙂 Dave was a great guide, super fun and a good photographer too, capturing all the best bits of our expedition.
The best rock climbing instruction I’ve ever had. Extremely clear and engaging.
I just wanted to add that the quality of instruction was actually more than excellent! I learned loads of things that were very empowering and challenging, while always feeling very safe and in a friendly atmosphere. I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed my day. Many thanks to Dave!
I will happily tell all my friends that it is one of the best things I have ever had the good fortune to do.
Dave, was excellent. He manages to combine an inspirational passion for climbing with very knowledgeable advice and instruction and an unerring eye for safety.
It has been an amazing experience. A gigantic sincere Thank you to Dave for his care, effort and lovely sense of humor! He made us really happy.
Just wanted to pass on my thanks for a fantastic abseiling service from you guys yesterday. The feedback from all was what a professional and warmhearted company you are and even the very fearful felt safe and cared for and thanked you for your patience and reassurance.
It would be an understatement to say the Abberley Hall Clock Tower Abseil event exceeded my expectations.
