Hvadnik is an amazing area in the Slovenian Julian Alps. It is connected to a deep gorge in Gozd Martuljek. At 250 metres high and 500 metres long, this stretch of land is truly remarkable. And on this half day trip, you will get to admire it from a via ferrata.

From the perch and perspective that only a via ferrata can provide, you will be able to gaze at the natural beauty of Hvadnik. From the Hvadnik stream and the peaks of the Martuljek mountain group, to the forest of green that looks stunning in the summer, this place is a feast for the eyes. And seeing it all from a via ferrata makes it even better.

Unlike other via ferrata trips that I lead, such as the one in Vevnica, this trip is not too difficult. You do not have to be a mountaineering expert to participate. However, any experience is good experience when it comes to climbing of any sort. But this will be a relatively easy experience. And because it’s only a half day trip, instead of lots of planning and preparing you can think of it more as a fun, brief excursion that you can enjoy if you happen to be in the area.

The natural scenery of Hvadnik, especially in the summer, is serene and stunning. And seeing it from a via ferrata only adds to its beauty. If that sounds like a way you might want to spend half-a-day in the Julian Alps of Slovenia, just send me a request, and let’s go!

You will not regret it.

I can also guide you on this full day via ferrata adventure on the difficult Vevnica peak. It is perfect for those with plenty of climbing experience looking for a challenge.

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide


I'm a 38-year-old aspirant IFMGA guide and alpine instructor based in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I have been guiding since 2014, a profession that I love because it allows me to be in contact with nature and to share my passion for the mountains with my clients. I especially like to share my love for the outdoors and knowledge with young people!

I specialize in both easy and more difficult climbing and via ferrata during the summer and ski touring and ice climbing during the winter. I like very much guiding in the remote parts of the Julian Alps, especially in the Eastern Slovenian Alps and the Dolomites.
