Erjavčeva hut at 1525 meters from 1901 on Vršič mountain pass. Erjavčeva mountain hut is between Kranjska Gora, Trenta valley, Soča river and Bovec.

We have eleven private rooms and a floor of dormitory beds, and we can host 60 people at the time. We are open almost the whole year. The hut was renovated in 2023.

The hut is located among larches on a small hill beneath the Vršič mountain pass. A central heating and a ceramic masonry furnace in the dining room ensure pleasant accommodation. Electricity, comfortable toilets and showers in the bathroom are provided throughout the year, enabling mountaineers and groups an enjoyable stay. The hut is also a good point about the winter snow conditions. A unique attraction, the rocky face of “Ajdovska deklica” (Giants maiden or Heathen Maiden) in Prisank’s north wall, is best seen from where the hut stands.

Our guides have prepared several days of excursions for the most enthusiastic travellers. They want to completely indulge, experience a holiday in its greatest glory, and return home with unforgettable memories. Adventure packages include various trips to locations known only to locals, and they are also, last but not least, numerically limited and controlled.

In our kitchen, traditional and local dishes are intertwined, to which we add a touch of freshness and a modern touch. However, we also carefully choose food for vegetarians and vegans. In addition to our homemade pesto and the unique Erjavčeva hut or “Erjavčeva koča” cake, we adapt the carefully selected menu to the seasonal choice of ingredients.
Namely, we cook food, eat daily, and add a glass of house wine, which the hut team also chose for themselves during their trip around Slovenia from several excellent local providers.

That is our way of life; guests can get to know and taste it. It is an extraordinary privilege for us to live in the Triglav National Park in the embrace of nature and to meet people from all over the world who visit us once and then always come back.

You are more than welcome in our company to visit us at Erjavčeva hut!
