What people are saying about Rock Climbing | Slovenian Julian Alps



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



Thank you so much for making this arguably the best part of our 2 week stay in Slovenia. We highly recommend Altitude Adventures. All the staff are friendly and the guides were experienced, encouraging and a pleasure to be around. We were given loads of pictures and the gear was comfortable. Thanks again.
