2-Day Tour, start from Vršič Pass / Vrata Valley (pick-up in Kranjska Gora)
Razor, an overall impressive mighty mountain and a true Alpine giant, shows the most impressive face towards Krnica, a charming valley from where we’ll start our tour. Expect a long, picturesque but twisty trail, crossing a steep face and past high Alpine lakes towards the panoramic peak. Split into two days with a night spent at 2,050 m in a hut nested among rocky peaks, we’ll conquer Mt. Križ on the first day, Razor on the second, and end our tour on the Vršič Pass. Reserved for adventurous romantics and those seeking great photography.
Guided by an experienced IFMGA mountain guide.

Day 1: Vršič Pass to Pogačnik Hut
We park our cars at the third serpentine by the road to the Vršič Pass and head towards the Krnica Hut. After 20 minutes, we pass the Krnica Hut, and continue our way towards steep faces of the high mountains ahead. The first hour and a half is more or less light hiking through a forest and over scree slopes, after which we enter the steeper climbing part of the ascent. The route is nicely secured though, making climbing pleasant, especially with the nice views of the surrounding peaks. Not even an hour into the climbing part we'll enter the easier slopes of the Križ Mountain and continue all the way to the top. Afterwards, we'll descend down to the Pogačnik Hut at Kriški Podi, where we'll spend the night. It's a nice little hut at 2,050 m by three mountain lakes, also known for herds of Alpine ibexes and chamois wandering freely nearby.
Day 2: Pogačnik Hut - Razor - Vršič Pass
After breakfast and possibly a stunning sunrise below high rocky peaks, we head towards our main goal of the tour - Mt. Razor. It's about 2 hours to the top over scree slopes and secured climbing walls. The last part is particularly tricky, but throughout secured. The views from the top are just amazing and include Triglav as well. We'll descend over the Mlinarica Peak and end our trip at the Vršič Pass.
