I climb to lose my mind
and find peace



The Ferratas are well-protected climbing routes that allow even beginners to get to know the world of mountaineering.
If you are going to do a Ferrata for the first time, know that you will need at least basic mountaineering equipment:

  • Helmet
  • A climbing harness
  • A self-protection system

f you don’t have any, you can rent it from the local technical equipment rental shops (you can find them online), which also offer guided escorted tours for adults and children from the age of 6 and a minimum height of 120cm.

Don’t climb in bad weather with the possibility of thunderstorms and lightning!


Ferratas in Mojstrana


  • Difficulty B
  • Height: 180 m
  • Length: 250 m
  • Difficulty C/D
  • Height: 180 m
  • Length: 250 m
  • Location: Mojstrana

In the village of Mojstrana, there are two Ferrata trails that take you to the top of Grančišče Hill, a good viewpoint of both the nearby Julian Alps and the Karavanke Mountains.

The Aljaž Trail

The first, easier Ferrata is called the Aljaž Trail and is suitable for both families and newcomers to the world of climbing. It is rated as B difficulty, 180m high, and 250m long. If you want to try your hand at this area, this is an excellent choice.

The Trail of Mojstrana Squirrels

The second Ferrata is more difficult – difficulty level C/D and is jokingly called the Trail of Mojstrana Squirrels. It is 180m high, 250m long, and suitable for those who have some experience with climbing or Ferrata, as it requires both knowledge and physical strength and good fitness.

We return along a marked walking path that leads us almost to the starting point.


Ferrata Hvadnik


  • Difficulty B/C
  • Altitude: 250 m
  • Length: 500 m
  • Location: Gozd Martuljek

Ferrata is located in the neighboring village of Gozd Martuljek, in the Hvadnik streambed, where the narrow gorge is often crossed attractively by means of wire ropes.

It is 500 m long, with an altitude difference of 250 m and a difficulty level of up to B/C. In the more difficult places, in addition to the ropes, there are also rungs and small staples to help. In addition to the compulsory equipment such as a helmet, climbing harness, and self-protection kit, climbing gloves are recommended. The route is closed in winter!


From the Reset Apartments, drive through Gozd Martuljek, turn left after the bridge crossing the Hladnik stream to the sports ground, in front of which you can park. Here you will find signs with all the information about both Hvadnik and Jerm’n Ferratas.


Ferrata Jerm’n


  • Difficulty D/E
  • Height: 180 m
  • Length: 220 m
  • Location: Gozd Martuljek
  • Special feature: Jerman Waterfall

Unlike the above-mentioned Ferrata, the Jerm’n Ferrata is very challenging, as it has a harder difficulty level (D/E), and the jumps are a bit further apart, so you will need a bit of strength in your arms.

It follows the Jerman stream gorge and offers a really cool adrenaline refreshment in the summer months. The Jerman waterfall is a special feature of the Ferrata, and at the end, you can visit the alpine village of Srednji Vrh and its old, indigenous farms. In addition to the compulsory equipment such as a helmet, climbing harness, and self-protection kit, climbing gloves are recommended.


As for the Hladnik Ferrata above, drive through Gozd Martuljek, where after the bridge crossing the Hladnik stream turn left to the sports ground, in front of which you can park. Here you will find signs with all the information about both Hvadnik and Jerm’n Ferratas. Continue along the asphalted road, which you will soon leave as the path leads to the left over a small bridge. The route is well signposted, so we have no choice but to follow the signs for Jerm’n Ferrata.

Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

The Slovenian Mountaineering Museum houses a rich collection of historical artifacts and an extensive specialist library. It reminds visitors of the importance of mountaineering in Slovenia with a variety of photographic and archival materials. You can see the permanent exhibition, learn about the historical development of mountaineering in Slovenia and choose from a variety of souvenirs and books on mountaineering in the shop. An introductory film and eleven different sections with challenges, tests, and tasks add variety to the experience. If you collect all the stamps along the way, there’s a prize waiting for you at the end.

The museum regularly organizes various temporary exhibitions, events, and activities. It also acts as an information point for the Triglav National Park, where you can get all the information you need about weather conditions in the mountains, open lodges, guides, and mountain trails.

The first records of the establishment of the Mountaineering Museum date back to 1901. The Triglav Museum collection, which was accumulated in Mojstrana until 1984, was managed by the Dovje Mojstrana Mountain Association. It was not until 1997 that the collection became part of the “Gornjesavski museum Jesenice”, and the independent museum began to take on its modern form only ten years later. The inauguration ceremony took place in 2010.

All guests of Reset Apartments can benefit from a 20% discount on tickets.

How to get to the Mountaineering Museum?

From Kranjska Gora, take the main road towards Jesenice and turn off towards Mojstrana. The museum resembles a high-mountain alpine shelter and is located on the left side of the road towards the Vrata valley.
