An introduction to the mountain environment in this level 1 alpine climbing course in Slovenia, led by Tomaz, IFMGA mountain guide.
This 5-day alpine climbing course in Slovenia is a fantastic introduction to basic summer mountaineering skills. Learn how to move safely in the mountains while enjoying a beautiful setting!
Whether you are a regular mountaineer or a beginner who wants to get started on this sport, this course is an ideal choice for you. In fact, it’s not necessary to have any previous experience.
Our playground can be either the popular Julian Alps (including Mount Triglav) or the less-known and quieter Kamnik Alps.
There will be both a theoretical part (with lectures and slides) and practical lessons in mountains and climbing areas.
The focus will be on how to be safe in the mountains and the best ways to manage risks.
You will also learn about training nutrition, technical gear for a mountain guide, meteorology, history of alpinism and orientation, among other topics.
Besides, I’ll teach you all the necessary techniques for moving safely on a roped party, as well as belaying and managing ropes.
After this course, you will have a solid mountaineering knowledge. You will be able to venture on the mountains on your own or attempt harder routes with a mountain guide.
Please contact me if you want to learn about this fascinating sport in this level 1 course. Slovenia has great spots for alpine climbing and I will be glad to show you some of them!
Besides, if you already have wide experience as a climber, you could check this level 2 alpine climbing course.

I was born in 1970 in Slovenia and I'm an IFMGA mountain guide since 2003. I started climbing when I was 15 years old at a local climbing club. Since then I became an ambitious and skilled alpinist, having accomplished numerous first ascents in Tien Shan, Himalaya, and Patagonia, and climbed extensively (over 900 alpine routes) in the Himalayas, the Alps, and in both Americas, at the same time working as a full time teacher in Slovenia!
In 2003 I became a full time mountain guide, and since then I've been guiding clients to the hidden gems of Slovenia and other Alpine summits all over Europe. In 2009, I also became the first Slovenian to guide clients up Mt Everest.
I would like to guide and show you the beauties of the hidden areas of Slovenian mountains, let it be in the Julian Alps or Kamnik Alps, away from the crowds. The mountains here are quite steep and dramatic, with sharp ridges, big faces and nice paths in between with some grassy meadows.
Here, it is an ideal field for hut to hut ski touring or free ride day tours or alpinism. It's also an ideal training ground for alpinism courses.

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
