Ice Climbing trips – Slovenia

Climb a collection of Slovenia's frozen falls over picturesque alpine landscapes

During the winter season, the Slovenian mountains turn into an outstanding natural scenery for ice climbing, with a large number of frozen waterfalls, mainly in the Julian Alps and the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. Kranjska Gora, a village on the northwest of the country, is an excellent starting point for an exhilarating ice climbing experience as well as other winter sports. There are guided trips for all levels: easy routes for first-timers, intermediate for those who want to train their skills and challenging routes for advanced climbers.

More Info

Slovenia lies in the south of Central Europe, where it is placed at the meeting point of many of the main European cultural and trading routes. The mostly mountainous country, with the Julian Alps to the north, and over half of its surface blanketed in forest, also has an elaborate cave system, with over 10,000 across the country. In the winter, thick carpets of snow are rolled out across the mountainside, while its large collected of waterfalls freeze over.

Myself and my dad went ice climbing with Matevz Vukotic and we had the most amazing day. Great guidance through
techniques as well as a lot of fun and laughter. I would highly recommend and we will definitely join again.
Amazing unique experience with a great guide. Grega was very good and we had lots of fun. I would highly
recommend ice climbing with grega!
Great Experience, a lot of fun….
I had an amazing experience with Mitja. From the start, he was very communicative and kept me updated constantly on
the weather conditions at Triglav. However, things weren’t ideal so I wasn’t able to get to Triglav. Despite the change in plans, Mitja went out of his way and arranged new activities he felt would suit my interests. We ended up doing a via ferrata he personally set and climbing ice falls. It was so much fun – Mitja was great to chat with and he was very knowledgable about Slovenia’s geography. I enjoyed every second of our trip and would definitely contact him again for another challenge when I go back to Slovenia!
I have chosen Mitja three times as my guide in the Julian Alps and now I would not consider anyone
else to lead me on my trips. Mitja is friendly, highly enthusiastic and is great at keeping you feeling at ease, even on the most exposed ground. He excels at reading his clients pace and ability, moving neither too quickly or slowly. Mitja obviously has an excellent knowledge of the routes in the Julian Alps (and beyond) as well an impressive level of technical knowledge. Mitja is excellent at English, never struggling to communicate what he requires from his guests. I would not hesitate to recommend him to guide you on any route, whether it be your first via ferrata or a bold north face climb.
