Description

I will take you on a 4-day ice climbing adventure that will blow your mind, as we tackle some absolutely glorious ice falls that are truly awe-inspiring, the icy sheets cascading down for a magnificent effect, and the perfect conditions making for some marvelous views over where the activity will take place, the Julian Alps, near Kranjska Gora, Slovenia.

The Julian Alps are one of the most famous and popular attractions in Slovenia, as it is home to the highest peak in the country, Mount Triglav, and also provides a wider array of Winter outdoor activities. The scenery is captivating and beguiling, and looks like something from a postcard!

We begin by meeting on the first day at the hotel in Kranjska Gora, where a safety and equipment check is held and all relevant information is dispensed. From there we hop over the border to Italy and climbs some easy ice falls as an introduction.

The subsequent few days are dedicated to ice climbing in such cute spots as Planica, Predel Pass and Vrsic Pass.

The views on offer from all these places almost defy belief, as the idyllic and pretty landscapes are proudly on display everywhere, backing up the reputation of this part of the world being a slice of Winter paradise.

We finish up on the last day with some more climbing before heading back to the hotel where we met, and we part company hopefully having left a warm and memorable impression on you.

Ice climbing in the Julian Alps is an unreal experience for anyone – book now to enjoy it!

For those who want more, we also offer 5-day guided ice climbing in the Julian Alps, here!

We also offer ice climbing mostly on the Italian side of the Julian Alps, here!
