If you are looking for an exciting and accessible via ferrata, I have the perfect option for you. Join me on the Mala Mojstrovka via ferrata, in the Slovenian Alps, and enjoy a great climbing adventure along your family.

Mala Mojstrovka (2332m) is a rocky peak in the Julian Alps, in the Triglav National Park. It lies straight above the well known Vrsic pass (1611 m).

The Mala Mojstrovka is one of the finest and most scenic via ferratas in the Mojstrovka-Prisank-Triglav region, and still relatively easy, even suitable for children. The round trip will take us from 4 to 6 hours with 700m of altitude gain.  We will then descend to the Vrsic Pass, a high mountain pass in the Julian Alps.

The route offers a spectacular panorma over a beautiful landscape and it is well protected. We will enjoy a great traverse, with the possibility to exit and descend along the way. Besides, we have the possibility of visiting interesting remnants of the World War I, like a Russian chapel, or an Austrian winter tunnel.

So what are you waiting for? Send me a request if you want to join me on this great via ferrata! Book your trip and get ready for a great climbing trip.

Slovenia offers many via ferrata possibilities and I also guide other great programmes, including the climbing of famous Mount Triglav. Check them out!

Mountain Guide

I’m an IFMGA Mountain Guide and an Alpine Instructor from Slovenia.

At the back of the house where I grew up, past a slope, a higher hill and some rocks, you could see Mount Triglav rising towards the blue sky.

Mountains were a part of my backyard and I started practicing alpinism when I was a schoolboy. At that time, I enrolled for a sport climbing school and I became an alpine instructor in 1995.

Between 1995 and 1997, I’ve been a member of the Sub-commission on Extreme Alpinism for the Slovene Alpine Society. Some years later, I was Chief of the Commission for Alpinism.

As a member of the alpine team, I went on several expeditions in North and South America, the Himalaya, the Tian Shan and the Kookshall-Too mountain range.

I climbed more than 700 routes in Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and France. Long winter climbs and ridges are always among my favorites.

I made some first winter ascents: on two routes on the north wall of Ribezni, Možnica (700m, V+, 5, UIAA VI/A1) and in Jof di Montasio / Poliški Špik, Grapa (700m, UIAA 4, ascent and complete ridge traverse). Other memorable climbs were a winter traverse of 4000 m peaks in Mont Blanc (4807 m) and the Slovenian Peuterey ridge traverse, among many others.

After 6 years of training, I obtained my IFMGA certification in 2010.

I organize many guided ski touring, rock climbing and ice climbing trips in Slovenia, especially in the surroundings of Mt. Triglav and the whole Soča valley.

What people are saying about this trip



Blaz was an incredible guide! Was very informative about the history behind the area and did a great job of making sure we had everything we needed for a great climb! Took so many pictures of us along the way and was a delight to speak with all the way!



We are an active couple in or late 50s and always wanted to do a via ferrata. Of course we were concerned that we would be physically unprepared for the trip. The web description, including time of travel was very accurate. The pacing by the guide was excellent and adapted to our speed. The amount of training and oversight was just right for our level of experience. The trip was amazing, a bucket list item. We were able to access extreme terrain with large exposure in a very safe manor. We were comfortable a all time on terrain that, with out the ferrata system, could only be safely accessed by experienced climbers using protection. I highly recommend this trip and guide.



Mala Mojstrovka is a very nice via ferrata with a steep climb and very nice views and our guide Blaz was top!



Blaz went above and beyond to make sure I had an amazing experience while climbing. Would highly recommend for anyone considering, it is worth it!



The experience was absolutely amazing. It was the highlight of trip to Slovenia. The views were incredible and Blaz was a great guide. This was my first time doing a via ferrata climb, and even though I was a bit nervous at first I never felt scared once we started the climb. Everything was super safe and we were able to move at our own pace. Blaz told us a lot about the mountains and the history around them and took great photos of us during the climb. 10/10 experience :)
