Goli vrh is one of the prettiest and most popular viewpoints above the village of Jezersko. This is a pleasant winter tour, relatively safe from avalanches even when it snows a lot. Most of the ascent runs through a forest but you will get the best view right at the beginning of the tour, at the lovely alpine meadow Jenkova planina and at the top, where you will be im...

Kriška gora and Tolsti vrh

Kriška gora is a very popular mountain above Tržič and Tolsti vrh is its taller neighbour. We decided to wait for the sunrise on the top and came across a number of ‘early morning’ hikers in pitch dark! The nice ridge between Kriška gora and Tolsti vrh is really panoramic and waking up early definitely paid off! The tour is suitable for hikers. Leave your tour...

Words cannot describe the sensations of this trip. A fantastic adventure and an endurance test in the white embrace of Slovenian mountains, far away from the noise and concrete jungle. Just you, your ski gear and a backpack weighing at least 15 kg. This is the Slovenian version of the world famous Haute-Route in the central Alps. It is a 3-4 days long ski touring jour...

During the ascent, your eyes will keep wandering behind your back and admire the fantastic views on the majestic summits of Julian Alps all the way from Špik to Mangart.

Alpine meadows of Pokljuka - Uskovnica and Zajamniki

This time we are setting on a fantastic 'journey' across the romantic Pokljuka meadows. This tour does not include any strenuous ascents or descents and is the most beautiful after heavy snowing. Of course, don’t forget to bring your snowshoes or skis. Most hikers visit Uskovnica meadow, which is closer to the starting point, whereas Zajamniki, Praprotnica and Šeh ...

Hruški vrh is less known and less visited than its neighbors - the famous Dovška Baba and the increasingly popular Klek or Petelinjek. Although it is slightly less interesting for skiing, it will not disappoint you on a sunny day with good snow conditions. If you have enough time and stamina, descend to the ski-touring paradise on the Austrian side. Non-skiers: don'...

The panoramic Križ is situated between Škrlatica, Razor and its nearest neighbor - Stenar. Our starting point will be the famous Vrata valley below Triglav north wall. This tour appears on the 'list' of many mountaineers in spring because the road to Vrata valley is not plowed and usually not negotiable during the winter months.

Velika Mojstrovka is slightly less visited than its famous neighbor – Mala Mojstrovka. We will ascend onto Mala Mojstrovka through 'Župančič' ravine, which calls for some more mountaineering experience, and then proceed on the ridge to Velika Mojstrovka. Truly beautiful tour with splendid views on most of Slovenian highest peaks. This is a popular ski-touring tri...

Veliki and Mali Raskovec are the somewhat less known neighbors in Lower Bohinj mountain chain between Rodica and Črna Prst. The tour is pretty long and is actually only appropriate for backcountry-skiers. In the described tour we will 'attack' Raskovec from Suha meadow below Rodica: if there is little snow, you can drive very close to the meadow by car, otherwise an ...

Kanjavec (from Krma Valley)

A winter ascent to Kanjavec is technically relatively simple, but it is a looooong tour no matter which starting point you choose. Due to the length of the tour and incredible ski slopes, it is mostly popular amongst backcountry-skiers. We will start from Krma valley, ascend to a saddle called Bohinjska Vratca and then descend to Velo Polje meadow. From here you have ...

From Kreda to Zadnji Vogel

An excellent tour in the mountains above Bohinj, which crosses five 2000-meter-summits! A ridge between Kreda and Zadnji Vogel offers unbelievable views and is accessible from the east (Laz meadow) as well as from the west ('Za Kopico' valley). From Laz meadow there are two options to get to the ridge: across a ravine between the summits of Kreda and Slatna (more diff...

'Za Kopico' valley lies east from the famous valley of 7 Triglav Lakes. During summer you will meet few hikers here, but in winter it is more visited than its famous neighbor due to easier access.

Mali and Veliki Bogatin (or Mahavšček) are well visited neighbors on the west edge of Komna. Ascending to Mali Bogatin from north (from Bogatin saddle) can be quite tough, but it is much easier from the south side (from the saddle between both Bogatin’s). Even more experience and caution is needed to get to the summit of Mahavšček. Its 'skiing' slopes are steep ...

The ascent or the 'journey' to Krn from Komna is a prestigious ski-touring trip. On this extremely long tour we will ski over 26 kilometers and overcome 1700 altitude meters. Ascents and descents interchange, thus we will thoroughly practice taking on and off the ski climbing skins. The mountain ambience is fantastic. After a successful return to the warm Komna hut, y...

Lanževica is, thanks to its rounded shape, a 2000-meter-mountain with the easiest access and thus the most often visited summit in the area around Komna. The part between Bogatin saddle and Lanževica is especially panoramic, and the view at the summit itself is just the icing on the cake. A very suitable tour for getting to know the beauties of Komna.

Komna is a vast plateau, which rises on the west side of Lake Bohinj. In winter this is a popular ski-touring area.

Begunjščica is a stretched out mountain west from Tržič. Winter approaches take place mostly from the north side and none of them is particularly easy. Winter Begunjščica is a 'playground' especially for alpinists, since numerous alpinist routes of different difficulties lead to its summit ridge.

This is a tour to rarely visited places above Pokljuka plateau. Most of the hikers and skiers ascend to the nearby Viševnik or Mrežce summits and you will probably have Debeli Vrh all for yourself.

Viševnik is probably the most visited 2000-meter-summit in Slovenia also during winter. The starting point altitude and the easy ascent are the main cause for its popularity. And the view is wonderful as well. This tour describes the easiest and most popular approach to Viševnik. The top slope is often very windy, so do not be too reckless and without proper winter ...

'Nad Šitom Glava' or 'Šitna Glava' is a 2000-meter-mountain with the easiest and fastest access in Slovenia, when the road to Vršič is negotiable.

It is more popular amongst alpinists as a descending ravine after going up to Storžič across a nearby (more difficult) Kramar's route.
