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. Check out our selection of trips and choose your next challenge! Explore-Share only promotes trips led by certified guides.
What should I know about Rock Climbing Slovenia?
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!

Slovenia is a truly scenic country. The mountains and valleys in the north are the perfect backdrop for any rock climbing adventure. Spectacular views over forests, lakes and other snow-capped peaks absorbs you as you sit on top of your most recent conquest.

Our day with Jan and Youna (I'm definitely spelling their names wrong, sorry) went very well, he made sure to check our skill level and chose climbs based on it. He also offered tips on how to tackle climbs and was very attentive to our safety. A great plus is helping us take photos with his amazing camera. Great day out on the rocks!
I don't properly understand Explore Share's role here. I just wanted to use a small local guiding company and I was forced to do booking through Explore Share. And finally third party, Kofler Sport took care of guiding. Kofler Sport and especially Greg's job was excellent.
Good information on the Explore-share website and help finding an available guide. Got in direct touch with guide very fast and were able to get all answers as to verify that this was the right trip for me. Had to change dates by one day due to weather changes, but this is to be expected in mountain regions. Ended up climbing in beautiful weather with very professional, calm and safe guide Igor Kremser. Overall a good experience from finding the trip, all communications and of course the trip itself. Thanks!
Hey Rok & Dejan, Thanks for taking us out to Bellevue. We had a great time and enjoyed the drinks and conversation after. We’re off to do some bouldering in Trenta per your recommendation, and are inspired to hit the outside even more when we’re back home. Hope to come back to Slovenia one day. Maybe we’ll see you in Metelkova tomorrow, Dejan. Best, Andrew
We met in 2010 and since then we are making four or five great tours per year. Mostly in Julian Alps – magnificent mountain ridges and popular climbing routes. Mitja is an excellent climber, fast and reliable, patient with clients, but above all – he enjoys sharing the beauty of mountains with others. Once we’ re seating in restaurant after tour and drinking bear. Looking towards Mount Triglav, Mitja said : ‘Up there is my office ! I’ve the best job in the world!’ I couldn’t agree more ! And now I am making plans for four tours in this year
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
