Have a unique experience splitboarding through the Triglav National Park on this 6-day tour in Slovenia along with Rok, an IFMGA certified mountain guide.
Please join me on a 6-day splitboarding tour in Triglav National Park in Slovenia! The meeting point of our trip will be in Bled, a village located by the shore of Lake Bled, near the Julian Alps.
During this 6-day program, we will enjoy splitboarding through different towns and we will discover the beauty of the Slovenian mountains. One of the points of interest of this trip will be Vogel, a big ski resort located above the Bohinj Valley. Another important ski resort that we will have the pleasure to visit will be Kanin, situated in the border area between Slovenia and Italy.
Please, take a look below for a more detailed description of the program. However, consider that the itinerary of the trip will vary according to the participant’s level and wishes. Since weather and snow are always changing, each day I will look for the most suitable option. This is why every trip is different and unique.

I grew up in Slovenia with Julian Alps as my backyard. Expeditions to Himalaya started when I was 17, started steep skiing at 15, climbing big walls at 13 and it was a natural progression to BASE jump and to become a mountain guide- a job that feeds my soul. I have been to several climbing expeditions to Peru, Kyrgyzstan, Tibet, Nepal and India.
I'm an IFMGA qualified mountain guide as well as an instructor for future guides, ski instructor, certified helicopter operator and a Heli Ski guide. Although my work took me all over the world my favorite place is still in the Julian Alps. Sharing the hidden places in my Home Mountains with my clients, guiding and teaching them to explore on their own is has been my biggest passion for the past few years.
Mountains are my passion. Winter or summer, climbing, flying through the air or skiing, it doesn't matter to me if I am guiding or having fun with friends. I simply get spaced out when I am in the mountains. Guiding for me is not a job - it is a state of mind and a lifestyle.
This rating is for Igor Kremser, who ended up guiding our group. He did an amazing job and made everyone feel comfortable climbing to the peak. He also took great pictures along the way and shared them with us. All in all, a fantastic experience!
We enjoyed our trip immensely. Highly recommend Rok Zalokar as as guide. Very knowledgeable and patient with our group of climbers.
Absolutely incredible trip. Rok knows exactly where the best snow is and will go out of his way to ensure you push yourself whilst staying safe. I couldn\'t recommend it enough.
It was an amazing trip and Rock was a wonderful guide. There was a difficult situation because of storm but everybody felt very safe thanks to Rock and his experience.

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
I had an awesome time going up Mt Triglav with Rok! He was super friendly and made the hike all the better. Both the guide and the ascent were a 5 out of 5!
My ascent of Mt Triglav with Rok went very well. The group reached the summit successfully. It was the right decision to go for it on the same day that we had walked up to the hut. I felt safe all of the time with Rok and I would look forward to climbing with him again sometime in the future. The other members of the group were very pleasant company.
Thank you Rok, for an amazing climb up the northern wall of Triglav. Breathtaking scenery, great company and most importantly world class guidance which made the difficulties seem easy. A memory for life!
We had a fantastic experience with Rok. We booked a 2 day trip to climb Mt. Triglav in June, 2015. The first 2/3rds of the ascent were pretty easy. During this part Rok was less of a technical guide, but was very valuable in setting a good pace to reach our hut on time, knowing when to stop for rests, knowing where the next mountain spring was to refill our water, and providing us with some information about the social history of the area, and some natural history about the mountains and forests we were walking through. It really increased my appreciation for the area and helped me enjoy the trek that much more. On the second day we climbed to the summit, and this is where Rok\'s experience and guidance proved invaluable. The trail led us along numerous ridges, with shear vertical drops on either side, and near vertical climbs up shear rock faces, some with, and some without a via ferrata to tie off to. I found it quite nerve-wracking, and would not have been able to do it alone. Rok was very calm and reassuring the entire time, giving gentle reassurance and encouragement, which really helped. In addition, he took our safety very seriously which gave me the confidence to continue to the summit. The landscape and scenery around Mt Triglav is absolutely stunning - I have a fantastic time, and would not have been able to enjoy it (or complete the trek even) without the help and guidance of Rok - he really does rock (I\'ve been waiting this whole review to squeeze in that pun). I could highly recommend Rok and Vertical Adventures to anyone looking to do some exploring and adventuring in Slovenia.
