Via ferrata Pot mojstranških veveric – Mojstrana (C) Slovenia

Above the alpine town Mojstrana, situated at the beginning of the Vrata valley, you can climb two sporty via ferratas up to Grančišče peak at 844m, while enjoying the views towards the Julian Alps and Karawanks. We’ll cover here the harder of the two routes, named Pot mojstranških veveric.

Map and photos


We arrive in Mojstrana village, situated between Kranjska Gora and Jesenice, connected by road 201 and a nice bike path that runs alongside it, separated from the car traffic. Paid parking is available near the Slovenian Alpine Museum, where you can also rent via ferrata gear.

Approach to start

Go up the main road for about 2 minutes, after which you make a sharp right, following the via ferrata signs.

The route

Built to modern standards, this route goes up to the top of Grančišče (844 m) and intersects the easier variant, Aljaževa pot, a few times. In the first part of the route we find a nice ladder to spice things up. A miniature Aljaž tower (Aljažev stolp), with a log book inside, marks the end of the route and the summit.


Follow the marked trail and arrive back to start in about 30 minutes. Don’t descend on any of the via ferratas.
