“Geoclimbing” in Slovenia, Customized geological climbing tours

Lan gave us solid advice and guided us through 3 different crags, all beautiful and suited to our climbing skills. He was very knowledgeable and we always felt in safety. Our climbing skills definitely improved thanks to him! He also taught us a lot about Slovenian culture and geology. We had an excellent experience with Lan and we'd totally recommand him as a guide.

Improve your rock climbing technique in Slovenia – intensive course

Lan is an excellent teacher and guide for outdoor climbing. We had a two days program combining outdoor climbing skills and guided outdoor climbing with him, and it was fantastic. We don’t have any experience climbing outdoors. After two days with him, we are confident that we have the skills to climb outside at our level by ourselves. First, Lan is extremely familiar with the climbing spots in Slovenia since he has been climbing here for more than 10 years. He can find the best spots that match our level for us to enjoy. In two days, we got the chance to climb at different parts in Slovenia with very different views and rocks. One in the west with very nice sea view at the top, and one in the mountains that we need to hike a bit to reach it: everyday we get something new to experience. Second, Lan is very skilled and experienced in outdoor climbing. He estimated our skills when we started with simple routes. After that, he will recommend some routes that are good for us to practice new skills and some other routes that push us a bit to our limit. Because he is very experienced, he could always guide us through the harder routes when we stuck. These guidances are very helpful for us to make progress in climbing. At the same time, he puts the safety in the first place and always keeps an eye on us to catch anything that we didn’t do properly and lets us know. I felt very safe and well taken care of when climbing with him. Furthermore, Lan is good at breaking down the skill teaching part during the climbing process. As such, we never felt bored of practicing because new skill is always combined with a climbing route that we will immediately try it out. Thirdly, Lan is a very nice person and passionate about climbing. I could not imaging how can I climb up those hard cracks without his encouragement and hints. He has vast knowledge about climbing and Slovenia that he is eager to share with us. In these two days, I know much more in these topics than before. We really had a lot of fun climbing with him. As such, I highly recommend anyone interested in learning outdoor climbing contact him and book a trip with him. You will enjoy the experience as we do! If you want a guided outdoor climbing trip please also contact him, and he won’t let you down!

Slovenia guided rock climbing

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

Winter alpine climbing course in Slovenia

It was great to have Tomaz show us the mountains surrounding Ljubljana, he is a great guide. As clients we should have indicated better what we wanted out of the trip in order to make the most of it. Building the level of intensity during the week is important and something you should not underestimate. The winter course was a little difficult to make happen as the conditions were not ideal. All in all a fantastic trip during which we learned lots from Tomaz

Mt Triglav North Face guided climb

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!

Mt Triglav North Face guided climb

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.

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!

Mt Triglav North Face guided climb

A mountain gives you permission to climb. Having Blaz as a guide meant optimum decisions for mountain environment combined with someone who is as committed to your goal as you are. Giving you all you needed technically, emotionally etc and all at the same time you had a great laugh. Top guy & top company!

Rock climbing near Bled, Slovenia (3 routes)

Had an absolutely amazing morning sending a few routes on the limestone near Bled. Our guide JERRY was a super friendly guy who went well out of the way to make us feel welcome. We stopped by a bakery in route to pick up some snacks for the day and picked up Bella, an adorable friendly little mountain dog. Jerry’s knoweledge of the rock was excellent and he quickly got my partner and I set up in appropriate routes. We also climbed near to nesting peregrine falcons to top things off!

Mt. Triglav Guided Ascent, Via Slovenian Route

We had an amazing time. Andrej is such a good guide, he has so much experience, we learnt a lot from him! We also felt completely safe even on those parts of the route which were a bit more difficult. The route itself is great for aspiring climbers. We had no climbing experience and felt it was perfect - you do climb the whole of the North face and there is almost no walking so you definitely get a good taste of alpine climbing but it is not too technical. It took us a long time, longer than expected, and we ended up staying in a mountain hut overnight and walking back the next day. Definitely do it but if you want to go the summit it might be better to book the two day trip as it a very long climb indeed (it took us 15 hours to get to the summit) - but of course totally worth it and the views are spectacular!

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.

Climbing around Mt Triglav in Slovenia

The guide is really professional and friendly but the route "Salaska" has only 4 pitches of real rockclimbing.I would recommend another more technical route with the same guide.

Slovenia guided rock climbing

Our climb with Rok was awesome. He adjusted the plan because weather conditions weren't great for multi-pitching so we went to a nearby crag and did mostly sports routes but also had the chance to try a bit of trad climbing as well. He chose good routes for us which were at the right level - challenging but enjoyable. He made the effort to incorporate teaching on climbing technique and technical skills like setting up a belay point. Jamie and I really enjoyed hanging out with Rok, who shared his passion for climbing with us, and was super helpful in giving us advice for climbing we could do during the rest of our stay in Slovenia. So glad we found you guys! Best wishes

Climbing around Mt Triglav in Slovenia

Climbing Mount Triglav was at the very top of my list of things to do in Slovenia and thanks in large part to Mitja the whole experience exceeded my expectations. Not only is he an incredibly experienced and versatile guide (he guides rock climbing, ice climbing and all sorts of other things as well as hikes), he's also really easy to talk to and great fun to hang out with, putting everyone instantly at ease. He was very knowledgeable about the mountain and the area too, telling us about everything from its geology, flora and fauna to how food is brought into the huts and what crazy records have been set by guides and other mountaineers attempting all sorts of feats on its slopes. Best of all was that I really felt his passion for what he does coming through. He clearly loves his job, loves meeting people and loves Slovenia. And he wants to see the outdoor tourism industry develop and thrive here. I'd recommend anyone interested in trekking Triglav give him a call. You couldn't be in better company.

Climbing around Mt Triglav in Slovenia

I had the pleasure of being guided up Mt Mangart (via Italiana route) by Mitja Sorn in June 2015. Mitja helped me organize two climbs at short notice to fit into my travelling schedule. He was extremely professional and safe on the mountain which gave me confidence and enabled me to enjoy the experience knowing I was in great hands. Along with his professionalism he was also entertaining, happily answering questions and joking the whole day. Since the climb Mitja has been in contact at my request to recommend other climbs which my experience is suitable for and which will also challenge me. I would not hesitate to recommend Mitja to people looking for a mountain guide in the alps and have already recommended him to a few of my friends.

Climbing around Mt Triglav in Slovenia

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
