Not specified

1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




At 2864 m, Mount Triglav is the highest peak in Slovenia and a national symbol. Besides, its impressive 1000 m high north face is considered the most beautiful of the Julian Alps.

I invite to climb one of the most popular multi-pitch routes in Triglav north face: the Short German route.

This is an 800 m route in solid rock, with a grade III+ of difficulty in the UIAA grading system. It is suitable for beginners and also for climbers with more experience.

The route ends at the Zimmer-Jahn exit. However, there's a longer (and more demanding) version called 'Long German route'.

Besides, you can ask about other non-mountain activities including horseback riding, mountain biking, skydiving, paragliding, kayaking, hot air ballooning and more!

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!

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!



Very nice team and trip! Maybe the group was a bit too large...



Myself and my dad went ice climbing with Matevz Vukotic and we had the most amazing day. Great guidance through techniques as well as a lot of fun and laughter. I would highly recommend and we will definitely join again.



We had a great day out at the craig with Matevz!



We had a great time rock climbing! Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the experience fun for both us and our kids. We can't wait to do it again!
