TRIGLAV SKI TOURING traverse – Slovenian haute route
The ‘Magistrala’ or Slovenian ski touring Haute Route is a superb experience and endurance test in the snowy embrace of Triglav National Park far away from the hustle and bustle of life. It’s just you, your skis, and a somewhat heavy rucksack!
A three-day (or optional extended four-day) ski touring traverse of the Julian Alps from Vogel to Komna, through the Seven Lakes Valley, across Hribarice and Velo Polje, past Kredarica and the former Triglav glacier down to the Krma Valley. Priceless! The Triglav ‘Magistrala’ (meaning highway) ski tour is the only multi-day ski tour in Slovenia. Every ski tourer should experience it at least once in their lifetime.
