Dolgi Hrbet, Slovenia, Guided Ice Climbing Tour

Dolgi Hrbet, Slovenia, Guided Ice Climbing Tour | Slovenia

Enjoy the thrill of this wonderful ice climbing tour on the Dolgi Hrbet peak in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps of Slovenia with Martin, an IFMGA certified mountain guide.

Not specified

1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Nov




There is an abundance of fantastic peaks to climb in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps of Slovenia. And during the winter season, after the snow has fallen and the ice has frozen, on those peaks are a number of fantastic walls that are perfect for ice climbing. One such peak, and the focus of this trip, is the Dolgi Hrbet (2,473m).

The Dolgi Hrbet is a great peak for climbing, as the summit is remarkable. However the ice climbing it provides is arguably just as, if not better than the ascent itself.

Starting from the Ancelj homestead in the Jezersko area, we will make our way through a passage to the south wall of the the Dolgi Hrbet. The passage is beautiful, and will provide you with some great views as you make your through it. Once we reach the south wall you will look up and see that it is close to 1000 metres high!

It will be on this wall that you will get to enjoy hours of ice climbing throughout the day. The thrill of making your way up a wall of sheer rock and ice is a unique thrill that will create memories you’ll be hard pressed to forget. And while the climb can be tough at points, I will be there to guide you through every metre. Thus giving you an experience that will be as safe as it will be exciting!

So if you want to test your abilities and endurance by climbing up a giant frozen wall on the side of a remarkable peak, then send me a request. I can assure you this trip on the Dolgi Hrbet is an adventure you will never forget.

Mountain Guide

I’m a mountain guide based in Bled, Slovenia. Climbing and alpinism are a big part of my life and I feel like mountains are my second home.

I was introduced to the mountains by my father, a mountain rescuer and a romantic alpinist. He made sure that I don’t see the mountains only as a sports playground but also as a place where a person can enjoy and get to know himself better.

Living in the heart of the Slovenian Alps gave me a chance to develop all disciplines of alpinism: hard rock climbing and wild ridges in the summer, sketchy mixed climbing and ski touring in the winter. I am fortunate that climbing took me on expeditions all over the world, from Patagonia to Himalayas. Since being on the higher ground is my second home, becoming a mountain guide came naturally.

As a mountain guide I want to share my passion for mountains in a respectful and friendly way. What drives me is bringing the beauty of higher mountains and alpinism closer to people who want to enjoy higher peaks but need safe guiding.

What people are saying about Martin



Every thing was okay Perfect professional guide ANDREJ, very good dates choosen with perfect weather conditions !!



We had an amazing time. Andrej is such a good guide, he has so much experience, we learnt a lot from him! We also felt completely safe even on those parts of the route which were a bit more difficult. The route itself is great for aspiring climbers. We had no climbing experience and felt it was perfect - you do climb the whole of the North face and there is almost no walking so you definitely get a good taste of alpine climbing but it is not too technical. It took us a long time, longer than expected, and we ended up staying in a mountain hut overnight and walking back the next day. Definitely do it but if you want to go the summit it might be better to book the two day trip as it a very long climb indeed (it took us 15 hours to get to the summit) - but of course totally worth it and the views are spectacular!



Brilliant trip we didn't do what we planned the eiger Because of the weather but he made every effort to make sure we did something else. We did the matterhorn and it was a brilliant trip guided really well, loads of knowledge. Thank you very much



Martin is a complete professional on and off the mountain. Always willing to share insights and knowledge about alpinism and climbing and made me feel comfortable and safe at all times. Whenever I had questions before the climb he would always be quick to answer with all the relevant information. The summit attempt of the Matterhorn was a success and Martin brought joy, knowledge and energy throughout the entire process.



Martin Zumer is an incredibly skilled climber who successfully guided me to the top of the Matterhorn. I felt safe with him for the entire trip, and I developed confidence in my own personal climbing abilities with his guidance. It was a lot of fun to climb with him and learn from him, and I would highly recommend him as a guide any day.
