Prisojnik via Ferrata
1-Day Tour, start from Vršič Pass, pick-up in Kranjska Gora or Bled
Explore the massive mountain that raises proudly above Kranjska Gora. Although there are several secured routes that lead to the top, one of the most intriguing ones is definitely the “Kopiščar” route. This route ascends sharply above the Vršič Mountain Pass, leading through a natural window to the other side of the mountain and to the panoramic top. With its perfect mix of demanding, elegant, steep, and attractive, it is the route to be fondly remembered for a long time.
After parking at the Vršič Mountain Pass, possibly by the Erjavčeva Hut, we'll go out to explore one of the most popular Slovenian mountains easily accessible from the road, Prisojnik. We'll follow a trail in the midst of high mountains and pass countless sheep grazing freely by the road and people enchanted with the surrounding beauty. The easy trail will soon end in steep cliffs and after strapping on the necessary climbing gear, we'll continue our way vertically. The route is secured, plus you'll be safely attached to your mountain guide, who will help you cross all the difficult spots more confidently. You'll pass through a famous natural window and enjoy a close-up view of the Heathen Maiden (Slo: Ajdovska deklica), a rock formation that resembles a girl's face. After about four hours, you'll reach the top of Prisojnik to absorb the enormous beauty around you. The descent will follow a much easier trail on the southern side of the mountain and is estimated to take you down in less than 3 hours.
"We did the via ferrata to Prisojnik (actually more of an Alpine climb, because of exposed parts where you are not secured) with two families. Communication about the difficulty of the tour was really straightforward, and we decided to limit the number of participants to those that met the physical and mental requirements (including 4 teenagers btw). Guides of service were Luka and Marko, and they did an excellent job. The weather window was not ideal and we left at 5 (all picked up by Luka on location). In the end we made it to the top through the famous 'window' and over the ridge. Climbing down we were surprised by early rain storms, so those last few hours became slippery and wet, but thanks to steady pace keeping and expert guidance we made it back. I can't thank our guides enough for a truly adventurous day in the Julian Alps!"
