Špik

1-Day Tour, start from Krnica Hut, pick-up in Kranjska Gora

Surely the wildest and most secluded part of the Triglav National Park, the Martuljek Mountain Group is mostly famous for its pointy peak Špik. Špik is also one of the few mountains in the group with marked trails. If the mountain shows its wild and vertical side to the north, the southern face is much more friendly. Although the trail is long yet not too demanding, those who tackle it are handsomely rewarded  with a  stunning panorama and that specific feeling of utter satisfaction that only the wildest mountains of the Julian Alps can give you.

Guided by an experienced IFMGA mountain guide.

Itinerary

With a parking lot only 20 minutes away from the Krnica Hut, this is definitely the preferable route to choose for a serious yet not too demanding a route to Špik. The first hour and a half is more or less light hiking, which then gradually gains in steepness and precipitation. The trail is nicely secured though, making climbing pleasant, and offering nice views while you're at it. The ascent usually takes 5 hours, while the descent about 3 hours.
