What people are saying about Mountain Climbing |



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.



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.



We first hesitated to take a guide. We are both young fit people but don't have experience in hiking a mountain. But wauw were we glad we had Mitja! He made sure we were safe the whole time (and that wasn't always a giving (thunder storm aproaching, snow so we coudn't secure ourselves on the mountain,..). We did things we couldn't have done if we hadn't had Mitja with us. Great experience. Wish we could take him to all our mountain trips!



Great experience and great professional guide.



We can’t say enough great things about this trek. Mitja, our guide, was incredible, we would not have made it up without him. The whole experience was beyond expectations. I would wholeheartedly recommend this trek to others. Thank you for helping to make our trip so memorable!
