Rock climbing is one of the most popular outdoor activities in Slovenia. Three different mountain ranges spread along the country —the Julian Alps, the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the Karavanke Mountains— make an incredible playground for climbers!
There are trips for everyone, from beginners to the most experienced. One of the highlights is climbing the north face of Mount Triglav, an impressive wall in Slovenia’s highest peak that has more than 120 climbing routes for all levels.

Slovenia is a small Central European nation bordered by Italy, Austria, Hungary, Croatia and the Adriatic Sea. It is dominated in the north and northwest by several subranges of the Alps, where most of the rock climbing in the country takes place.
Most trips to Slovenia will begin with a flight into the international airport near Ljubljana, the capital. Many guides offer to meet you here before heading to the north to begin your rock climbing trips. If you have the time, spending a day or two in the capital is well worth it. Taking in some of the architecture and sample as much local food and wine as you can.
Once you head up north to begin your rock climbing adventure take in as much as you can. There are three subranges of the Alps, each of which has excellent climbing opportunities. There are also a number of other idyllic towns and cultural sites in the north as well. When you’re not on the rocks, see as much of this beautiful and special country as you can!
During the summer, temperatures are moderate, but can get all the way up to the mid-30s. As autumn begins, temperatures become quite pleasant again. The country does not get much rain during the summer and autumn.
This depends on how much time you have. Many guides offer half-day and single-day climbing trips at a specific location, while others offer week-long trips that involve climbing various mountains and route.
June to September, but some guides also offer trips from April to October.
