On day 2, we’ll visit the popular Haut Koenigsbourg Castle (5.30 hours) and then travel to the commune of Mittelbergheim.

About the guide

Mountain Leader

Setting off on an adventure on a whim, without a precise plan, walking according to desires and emotions, pushing further to discover what a summit or a ridge reveals. Trained as a business lawyer, then manager of a large sports store, biathlete and trail runner, it was my job as a guide that ultimately allowed me to establish a more structured and secure framework for my wanderings, but without ever losing my wonder and my curiosity. It is with this state of mind that today I like to travel and share the mountains here and elsewhere, preferably roaming, in order to give us time to soak up the landscapes which evolve over time, days and seasons.

I will always be happy to set off on the classic tours, but above all I strive to guide you off the beaten paths.

Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
