Follow Samo, IFMGA mountain guide, on a climbing adventure in Martuljek group ascending some of the less-visited peaks of the Julian Alps.

Julian Alps

+1 Day

Jun - Oct


At the heart of the Julian Alps, the wild and hard to reach Martuljek group offers many opportunities for mountaineers and climbers.

This is an ideal place for those seeking wild pristine mountains, away from the crowds of the most popular mountain peaks.

In fact, Martuljek is the most inaccessible group of the Julian Alps. The peaks on this wild corner of the Alps have amazing steep walls and no marked paths leading to any of them.

My favorite routes on the Martuljek group:

Route nameHighlightsPrice per person (EUR) 12 Široka pečThe queen of Martuljek. It has a jagged ridge that resembles an enchanted fortress. It’s one of the hardest mountains to reach in the Julian Alps.

1700 m of ascent, 10-12 hours, climbing up to UIAA III+

310200Mala Martuljška PoncaA nice round tour with a visit to both cirques Pod srcem and Za Akom.

1750 m of ascent, 9-11 hours, climbing up to UIAA II on the summit ridge.

300170Mali Oltar – Bučer-Kristan RouteAn enjoyable climbing in good rock leading to a pointy summit. A nice route with a rugged descent.

1700 m of ascent, 400 m UIAA IV route included. 9-12 hours.

340210Špik – Direct RouteThis is a route of historical importance that used to be one of the hardest climbs of the Alps. It was climbed in 1926 by a Slovenian female alpinist, Mira Marko Debelakova.

900 m route, UIAA V+.

Mountain Guide

I first got into the mountains through snowboarding, first as a snowboard instructor, and since then I have never looked back for 25 years!

I’m an IFMGA mountain guide born and raised in Slovenia, but I have enjoyed the mountains all over the world in different disciplines, from riding the famously steep terrains on split board in Chamonix to making the first ascent in the Himalayas.

My favourites are big wall climbing and hiking on solitary peaks away from the crowds, and there are good places for it in the whole of Julian Alps and Kamnik Alps. The Italian side of the Julian Alps also is a gold mine of good rocks and fantastic ridges.

Join me to explore the treasures of Southern Europe let it be in rock climbing, alpine climbing or ski (snowboard) touring!

What people are saying about Samo



Samo was a fantastic guide. It was clear he knew the area, and had plenty of experience to help us through Anica Kuk, a 320m/1000' climb in Paklenica.
