Whether you’re a beginner or an expert ice climber, experience an awesome alpine experience with me in the  Julian Alps.

What to expect

I’ll pick you up from your hotel in Kranjska Gora, Bled or Ljubljana. Then, we’ll drive for an hour through the Julian Alps to the alpine walls. You’ll be able to take in the spectacular scenery around you, and we’ll go through the basics of ice climbing. We’ll also talk a bit about your experience. Then, based on that I’ll choose the best spot for you.

When we arrive at our destination we’ll get geared up ready to climb. That’s where the real fun begins! From January through March the conditions are perfect for ice climbing. Our climbs are 100% alpine, so you get the ultimate winter experience. We normally do climbs that are between two to six pitches long. I can adjust for all levels and make it easier or harder according to how you’re feeling.

When we’re done climbing, I recommend stopping for some traditional food. That will complete your Slovenian alpine experience. I’ll then drop you back at your hotel.

Customise your trip

You can adapt this trip to make it either half a day, a full day or multiple days. If you choose multiple days, we’ll also be able to explore the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the Karawanks.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up now and come and join me for an epic mountain experience.

If you also want to have some fun practicing rock climbing, join me in Ljubljana for a half-day indoor climbing session.

Mountain Guide

Climbing, that is me. Doing rock climbing since I was 10, from hard sport climbs to free alpine ascent of Trango Tower.

Now enjoying easier ridges with best views. The sound of nature, the smell of winter, screeams of joy. Lots of fun I found climbing with my son and wife, and friends.

I have more than 20 years of experience with guiding groups and familys. I understand safety, open spaces, mountain joy and good food are key factors. Come for a unforgetable joyride.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
