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.
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.
The winter months experience a large supply of snowfall, especially in the western regions of the country.
Visit in the winter months between December and March for prime ice climbing conditions.
