What people are saying about Mountain Climbing | Julian Alps



I had Uroš Grilj as a guide for a 7-day hike and I recommend him wholeheartedly. He is highly skilled and competent. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, for which I had no previous experience and which were nonetheless perfectly comfortable and fun, entirely thanks to him. He constantly adapted the routes to my level and the weather conditions, checked in on me and discussed the options for the next days with me. He is also a very nice person and it was a pleasure to talk to and learn from him. Thank you very much, Uroš!
