We cant do the climb with the bad weather. The explore share team and Mitja answer at your question very quickly
and they are friendly. Sad to not do the climb but good service !
Mitja was an amazing Guide,so glad my son and I chose him to do this winter climb. Mitja has so much
knowledge about the climb and his expertise is valuable. We felt safe at all times and Mitja continuously provided encouragement and advice. Would recommend Mitja to anyone looking for a guide
Booking the guide was a simple process. Having a guide on the mountain climb and experiencing the mountains in those
conditions was the highlight of the trip. I would recommend to anyone going to Slovenia. Thanks.
We had an amazing time. Our guide gave us many information about the regions flora and fauna. Even though the
sight at the very top wasn’t so good this day, the climb up was vey exciting. Thanks a lot.
I booked the Triglav winter climb and the communication via email was perfect. My tour guide was Luca, who is
definitely recommendable. It was fun and I felt safely all the time. We had good weather conditions and could therefore climb the Triglav within one day. Thanks for this awesome adventure!
Jonas Obermaier for Mount Triglav guided winter climb
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, met with all my expectations and beyond. Our Guide was excellent and provided an excellent
experience. The hut was great and the staff there so helpful. The ascent of Triglav itself is a beautiful Alpine tour and a very interesting route and we were further blessed with excellent conditions on summit morning which made it even more memorable. I can highly recommend this tour to any developing Alpinist.
Andy Wheatstone for Mount Triglav guided winter climb
Mitja, Marko and luka were on their game and adapted to a varied group. I feel they delivered excellent value
for money and wouldn’t hesitate to book their services again in the julian alps or dolomites. Ben Hooper- Australia.
Benjamin Hooper for Mount Triglav guided winter climb
A really excellent service provided by Mitja, who sourced the fantastic mountain guide Peter Jeromel. Both provided superb advice
and we were able to create a challenging but achievable climb of Triglav in winter conditions.
Kevin Holligan for Climbing Mount Triglav (2864m)
I loved this trip! We had spectacular views of the moutains! The weather didn’t permit us to hike Triglav. We
got to see 4-5 other peaks with snowshoes. Talk about breathtaking! Mitja was wonderful guide. He was on time, funny stories, and you can tell he loves what he does, which hands down makes the trip that much wonderful! Highly reccomemnd him! I will be back to do Triglav!
Staphanie Peacock for Climbing Mount Triglav (2864m)
Well planned and brilliant communication before had, Mitja would reply to emails quickly and would answer any questions that we
had. The walk was fantastic, deffinatly a challenge. Highly recommended.
Mitja was the man, so friendly and experienced. We wouldn’t have been able to do the climb without him, he
provided all gear and had endless tips and great stories about Slovenia and the mountain. This was for sure one of the top highlights of our 13 day honeymoon in Slovenia! -Taylor and Pete (New Jersey, USA)
Taylor Effenberger for Triglav private guided climbing tours
Climbing Mt. Triglav with Mitja and Roks was a truly enjoyable experience for me that I would cherish forever. They
are extremely organized, helpful and full of humor that made the difficult journey to the top so easy. Even though I was the slowest in the group, they made sure that I reach safely to the destination and enjoy the trek thoroughly. Mitja’s repeated advice on being relaxed and not to think much over the hurdles on the path while trekking was one of the valuable takeaways. And I thank them thousand times for offering such a memorable trip in Triglav. For those who are thinking of climbing Mt. Triglav, I can reccommend Mitja and Roks anytime as guides to have a safe and comfortable journey.
Mitja is a well qualified expert guide, jbut more than that, he’s a good people-person and risk manager. While he’s
introducing you to the countryside during the steadily incling walk up the former glacier/Kemal valley, he’s also assessing each of the groups’ strengths and weaknesses, forming sub-groups based on the optimal mix and the weather conditions. Even though he does this twice a week in Summer, you can tell he loves his work and interacting with people. The when we’ve arrived at the 2000m hut, he switches into safety, security and risk manager mode behind the scenes to ensure the final 800m via-feratta ascent to the summit goes without a hitch and to ensure each ‘guest’ gets maximum outcomes. To do this he uses a team of guides (Rok, Igor, etc) who take 3/4 guests and rope you together for the final climb up Triglav. I have to say, while I have a fear of heights (yet I’ve parachuted and abseiled/respelled) and my butterflies and toes were tingling all the way up, I felt very safe and secure throughout. My grand daughter was also born that day so I yelled a welcome to the world message off the top of Triglav for her. What a great day on many levels. Thx Mitja and team
Really nice experience
Rafael Smijtnk for Climbing Mount Triglav (2864m)
Leaving climbing Mt Triglav until late 50s and my nervousness about heights are both understatements. However at all times with
Mitja and his crew of expert full-time guides (Rok, Igor and another) I felt in highly experienced, safe and capable hands. We had perfect weather so walked to top hut near Triglav and summitted in one day. It was challenging, scary and highly rewarding. I was in a mixed age and abilities group of 13, some of whom were ill-prepared mentally (some delusional that they were going out for an easy two day Hill walk) and physically. But all made it to the top easily and triumphantly. Well done Mitja and guide crew. Thanks Ash
It was the first day with “autumn weather “ since summer started. Mitja tried his best to make the right
decision for us about when to go to the summit. We went the first day, unfortunately without a view from the summit but it was a good decision as the next day was very windy and freezing cold. Gloves, hat, poles were provided by Mitja. He us on a different way back so we would still have a great view almost similar to the one on the top, this route was amazing! Thanks Mitja It was super!
