Triglavski Dom na Kredarici

The highest mountain lodge in Slovenia is most popular with Triglav visitors.
Elevation
2515 m
Season
June - September
Capacity
350

This is the highest located and most visited mountain lodge in Slovenia. Because of the great altitude, it’s a good starting point for the final part of the Triglav tours. It offers a spectacular view to the north and south, and also looks on the top part of the Triglav climb, so visitors can often observe hikers as they make their final steps towards the peak.

Kredarica is also the highest meteorological station in Slovenia and 2 meteorologists are there at all times, even during the winter. The lodge is officially closed in the wintertime, but even then the weathermen will welcome you with open arms and offer you something to eat. In the winter, Kredarica is a popular destination for tour skiing, while a winter ascent of Triglav summit is only reserved for the most experienced mountaineers and can only be done in the right conditions. The lodge can accommodate almost 350 people and has 300 seats in its dining rooms and in front of the lodge.

I arranged a six-day/five-night trip with Hut to Hut Slovenia. It's the first time I've gone with a tour organizer and I can say it went really well. In the past I've arranged huts myself and it is a huge hassle figuring out how to make the bookings, if the bookings actually exist, and what good/viable routes might be. Having this all sort was, at least to me, totally worth it. The routing is via Ride with GPS, which was great. I'd recommend bringing 1:25,000 scale paper maps as a backup, just in case. The huts themselves differ wildly. Some are really rustic with, ahem, interesting toilet facilities. One was accessible by road and thus had showers, a long menu, and even espresso. All will have some sort of food, but you might only have two options for dinner (one with meat, one vegetarian). The cuisine in the Slovenian huts leans strongly to stews and goulashes with minimal fresh vegetables and/or fruit. Certainly good and hearty but pretty much everyone I talked to said the food was better in the Italian and Austrian huts. Some huts are cash only, some take cards (but the card reader might be down). A 1.5 litre bottle of water is about 6 euro, so if you have a beer with dinner and also buy lunch you need to carry about 25-30 euro per day in cash (assuming you have a booking that includes breakfast). Of the six days of hiking, four were ridiculously spectacular, with the highlight being sunrise from Mt Stol. Getting up to the high mountains, though, can be crazy steep, with switchbacks only sparsely used. Descents are similarly tough, and you have to watch every step. For the first time ever I used trekking poles and my knees thank me. Two days were a bit of a slog, but this is probably unavoidable getting up to or down from the high terrain. Would I do something like this again? Yes, absolutely! But next time it will probably be the Dolomites.

We had a lovely hike today with our guide Klemen. He personalized the tour on our needs and interests, so that we saw places we wouldn't without his experience. The hike was a little bit slippery after the rain from the last days and it went a lot upwards, but it was totally worth it! Thanks again :)

We had a great day with Klemen on this hike, he showed us some lesser known spots/highlights of the southern part of the julian alps with a nice viewpoint at the end. 10/10 would book again

We absolutely loved this trip, a real adventure. We did 4 days of walking in the Julian Alps, starting in Lake Bohinj and finishing in Lake Bled. It was so well organised for us. From the first contact with our enquiry, video call to discuss our trip in detail and organising the full itinerary. The app with all the details and route maps was excellent and we used in constantly to ensure we were on the correct route. It was so accurate as soon as we went off course. Throughly recommend using this company for your trip to walking in the beautiful country of Slovenia.
