Description

Slovenia is an amazing destination for outdoor lovers! On this programme, I invite you to explore some of the best canyoning spots in the emerald alpine rivers around Bled.

Canyoning provides a perfect mix of fun and adrenaline. Basically, it consists on traveling a canyon using different techniques like jumping into natural pools, swimming, rappeling, scrambling and in some cases even zip-lining!

It's a great activity that will allow you to discover and enjoy nature in a unique way. Besides, you don't need any previous experience. 

There are different jumps you can try; the highest is 10 m! However, you can also enjoy canyons without jumping, by rappeling down with a rope.

I'll provide all the necessary equipment for you, like a helmet, harness and canyoning shoes. Besides, you'll be wearing a high quality neoprene suit to keep you warm on the water.

The whole activity will demand between 2-4 hours.

Mountain Guide

I’m a certified IFMGA mountain guide and canyoning guide living in the small and famous town of Bled, in Slovenia.

I started rock climbing at the age of 5. From that time on, the mountains became my playground. During my childhood, I took part in many rock climbing competitions. When I was 12, my twin brother and I did our first multi-pitch climb on a 350 m wall.

By the age of 16, I started competing in ice climbing world cups and later on skydiving junior world cups. In fact, in 2008 I became the world champion at the UIAA Ice Climbing Overall Ranking in speed ice climbing.

I climbed in many different countries like Peru, South Korea, Switzerland, France and Italy. However, Slovenia is the place I like the most.

Among other significant achievements, I did the first winter ascent (from the bottom of the wall) in Sphinx, the most difficult route in the mythical North Face of Mt Triglav. Besides, I got the first place for males at the IFMGA International mountain guide climbing championship in 2017.

I like sharing moments with people, especially in mountains. Feel free to join me in the highest mountains, steepest walls and many other Alpine wonders. I’m flexible, so we can also research places in other countries worldwide. Deep canyons, emerald rivers, beautiful mountains, great people, a good laugh, you name it.

I look forward to meeting you!

We had an amazing time climbing with Matevz near Bled! He took us to his hometown crag and found us several routes that suited our skill level. Strongly recommended.

Stunning hike up Debela Pec with our guide Timotei from Altitude Activities. Everything was exactly as we hoped - super kind and friendly guide, beautiful scenery, fun hiking in the snow and a great traditional Slovenian lunch at the hut on the way down. Great experience!

We only had a small time in Bled and wanted a half day snow shoe tour. The company were very accommodating and were able to offer a shorter tour for us based around our needs. Very easy to book and communicate about where to meet etc. Our tour guide was great, very friendly and welcoming. He took the tour at our pace and we enjoyed the hike. Would highly recommend 👍🏽
