Description

Only at a 5 minute hike from the alpine village of Mojstrana, you’ll find a very enjoyable via ferrata route on the wall of Grančišče hill.

Protected climbing routes provide a unique approach to the mountains. Besides, they are a fun activity that can also be done in family!

This is a half-day trip perfect for beginners, as you don’t need any prior experience or specific technical skills. We’ll get there after a 25 min drive and a short hike, while the climbing part will only take us 2 hours. So expect a total amount of 3-4 hours. Great news if you want to start the day with a powerful adventure and then follow your trip with other activities.

From the top of Grančišče you’ll enjoy wonderful views of Mojstrana and the surrounding peaks of the Julian Alps.

We can also make a stop to visit Mojstrana mountaineering museum along the way.

About the 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 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 👍🏽

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!

Nice guy. We were unable to complete the hike due to personal reasons. But Matevz was understanding and did not tell us what to do. Instead he offered the facts and gave us options, which was the right way to do so. We ended up doing alternative activities on second day, which was a nice way to replace the 2 day itinerary.

Our guide was Mitja Drinavec (not Matevz Vukotic), he was very nice and responsible during the entire trip. Thank you for the great experience.

That was not the guide, to begin with. It was a very very young woman. She was not very communicative, although she replied all the questions asked by the people seating in the front row. I, at the rear, have little opportunity to actually ear anything that it was said. Even less to ask myself The tour was not so bad but obviously some stops were far more interesting than others. What I found really annoying was the company of two people (clearly not customers) who shared the tour with us, speaking one another in their language as if they were alone in the van. Customers and friends (colleagues?) should be kept apart.

Hi, We had a great climb with Matevz on the Hanz route - we knew we were in good hands and he kept a good pace and made sure we were taken care of on the way up. The climb was quite steep and a little scary but it helped knowing we were secured by a rope so an exhilirating day overall. We loved it!

Our day with Jan and Youna (I'm definitely spelling their names wrong, sorry) went very well, he made sure to check our skill level and chose climbs based on it. He also offered tips on how to tackle climbs and was very attentive to our safety. A great plus is helping us take photos with his amazing camera. Great day out on the rocks!
