About the guide

Mountains have been part of my life for more than two decades now. It's been an intense relationship that consumed my everything. First, I practiced skiing and all forms of climbing: sport, traditional, big wall, aid, ice and mixed. I risked it all, giving my life away and winning it back on big and hard mountain faces.

Some years later, I studied paramedicine and joined the Heli-Rescue service. I witnessed my own triumph as an alpinist and tragedy as a rescuer, which completed my understanding of what the mountain is in relation to people. This was the beginning of the end of my alpinist alter ego.

In 2016 I climbed Cerro Torre and pushed a new line as a mountaineer in Patagonia. This was the climbing climax which gave way to my mountain guiding career: my third and most balanced perspective on the world of mountains and on the mountains of the world. Since then, I've guided climbing and skiing trips in the Alps, the Caucasus range, the Cordillera Blanca in Peru and in the mountains ranges of Eastern Europe, among others.

Appreciating happiness through the eyes of others is what finally brought harmony to me, and this is what I want to share with people.

Victor is the best guide we've ever met. We did 3 days of skitouring with him. Even though the forecast was not too good, he made perfect itineraries to get the most out of each day. He was perfectly reliable and fair. Victor started with an easier route to see what we can do, and then every day we tried something harder, up to real ski-alpinism on the last day. He was always there to help us when we had problems. We felt perfectly safe with him all the time. He also shared lots of his knowledge and tricks - we learned more than on a skitouring course. We've had some problems with explore-share though - most of the prices of skitouring in Bulgaria displayed on their website turned out not to be up to date. But we have to admit, that the explore-share team did all they could to help us solve the problems and to find us a guide - all in a very polite and friendly way.
