    A well organised trip with knowledgeable guides and spectacular scenery.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The ascent of Triglav was a brilliant day. The panoramic views from the top were impressive and made the trip worth it.What did you think of your group leader?The two group leaders were brilliant. Incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about their country. They had our safety in mind as their priority as well as making sure people were enjoying the trip overall. Couldn't have asked for better.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Great trip. Would recommend it.

    A really great trip with rewarding views if the weather is good. Although there is a fair bit of uphill, the reward was definately worth it!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Standing on the summit of Mount Triglav looking around the mountains and celebrating the achievement with the rest of the group.What did you think of your group leader?David and Palona were great leaders who looked after us and always put the safety of the group first. It was a real pleasure to walk with them.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Yes, the meals in the mountain huts are as the brochure advertised - wholesome but not too fancy. I'd advise anyone on the trip to take some Worcester or Tabasco sause to liven the goulash, barley soup or pasta dishes up a bit!Is there anything else you would like to add?That was a great holiday and although some of the ascents were hard (due to the heat and the 50L rucksack) it was well worth the effort. I'd advise anyone wanting to do this trip to train for it by doing a few hills in advance. The C/D rating was accurate.

    A fantastic if a little challenging holiday, the scenery is worth every effort.What did you think of your group leader?The leaders were great, really knowledgeable and understanding. We did the climb to Triglav because of their research on the weather conditions, if we had waited another day it would have been a trip without the summitDo you have any advice for potential travellers?Be ready for the heat if you are going in the summer. There is lots to do around Bled so organise something for the last day; we had a lot of off time.

    An inspirational and challenging tripWhat was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Running down the scree the day before the ascent on Triglav and coming down off Triglav: Scary, but stunning.What did you think of your group leader?David was a lot of fun. He added a lot to the trip. He was clearly popular with the staff in the huts, too...Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Pack light! Ruthlessly llight for the hut-to-hut days. Some sections are genuinely demanding. Scary, too. You need a good head for heights, and not just on summit day.Wet wipes were my best friend. I used about 20 of them. No hot water for periods, and no water to speak of at two places.Is there anything else you would like to add?Astonishing scenery, and, for me, a genuine challenge. Carrying the weight on your back makes it that much more difficult. Don't let the obscurity of the destination put you off. Some of the huts were extremely basic in terms of washing facilities, but overall the network is excellent.

    An excellent trip with great scenery, scary moments, great leaders and a lovely group of people.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Coming down from Triglav. I was so scared but never doubted once that my guide would get me down safely. Then when I looked back at where I had been I really could not believe that I had done it!!What did you think of your group leader?The group leaders were excellent. They really looked after us especially on the narrow ridges across the via ferrata making sure we were safe and felt secure at all times. They were also very entertaining and joined in with the social times too.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?There are some scary parts to this trip so if you are afraid of narrow ridges with steep drops, then think again. Also as you are carrying your pack you really only need the bare minimum of clothing etc. It was amazing what we all left out of our packs on that first day!!

    What is the level of difficulty for this trek?

    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; no previous experience is necessary when first using these

What are people saying about TourRadar?

  • James12th May 2018
    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
