During winter, the beautiful waterfalls in the Logarska Valley freeze and turn into a paradise for ice climbing. Get started on this exciting sport on this 1-day trip in Palenk together with Danilo, a local IFMGA mountain guide.

The frozen waterfalls of the Logarska Valley are a very attractive spot for ice climbers. I propose a journey to Palenk icefall as a great introduction to this activity!
The valley of Logarska lies in the north of Slovenia, close to the border with Austria. Among the several icefalls you can find there in winter, Palenk is one of the most popular, even for those who are just starting out.
First of all, we'll give you the equipment: ice tools, harness, crampons and rope. Secondly, you'll learn how to use it properly to enjoy a safe climb.
Then, after you put on your gloves and helmet, the great moment will come: you'll get the chance of climbing a vertical iced surface for the first time.
In ice climbing, body and mind have to work as one. And once you are able to combine them, the experience is pure joy.
Are you ready to challenge yourself in the icy falls of Slovenia? Then join this 1-day introduction to ice climbing for a new and lively experience!
If you like skiing, you should also take a look at this 1-day ski touring trip in Logarska Valley.
The price includes the rental of technical equipment: climbing harness, helmet, crampons, ice tools, rope. | Guests should be over 18 or take part in the course in the company of their parents. | All guests should have suitable medical insurance.
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!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
