Description

Prepare yourself for a 5-day adventure in one of the less-traveled spots of the European Alps: the Logarska Valley.

In the north of Slovenia, very close to the border with Austria, lies this beautiful alpine valley surrounded by the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.

This time, I propose a hiking traverse exploring different mountain trails in a wonderful natural scenery. The beautiful Savinja River, impressive gorges and snowy peaks will be part of the landscape.

Besides, we'll ascend some peaks like Ojstrica (2350 m), Turska Gora (2251 m) and Mrzla Gora (2203 m).

But it won't be all about hiking. We'll also practice some rock climbing on easy routes. Don't worry if you've never climbed before: I'll teach you the basics and you'll be able to enjoy it and feel safe!

However, it's important that you have some hiking experience in the mountains. We'll be hiking around 5 hours per day.

Below this description you'll find a complete itinerary for this trip.

Would you like to join a hiking adventure in this beautiful Slovenian region? Then contact me! It will be a pleasure to be your guide there.

In case you'd like to learn some basic skills to move safely in the mountains, you should take a look at this 3-day mountaineering and via ferrata course in Logarska Valley.

About the guide

I am a Slovenian IFMGA mountain guide with the ZGVS.
It was when I was 12 years old that I first climbed a mountain myself and by the age of 15 I had started rock climbing.
Since then, my ascents count up to around 1000, starting from Mont Blanc in the seventies and Triglav north face to Cho Oyu, and all over South America including 18 of the 6000m+ peaks including a first ascent on south face of Aconcagua.

I have climbed and travelled all over the world, Shivlinga, K2, Mt Everest, Manaslu, Shishi Panama, El Cap and sport climbing in Kalymnos and Cuba.

Skiing powder in great conditions and rock climbing under the sun are my motto!

Contact me if you'd like to have fun safely in the mountains with me! If I am unavailable then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Milan, can take care of you!

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
