If you’ve ever wanted to try the fun and exhilarating pursuit of ice climbing, myself and our team of world champion ice climbers will lead and help you to fulfill this ambition in the stunningly beautiful Triglav National Park, Slovenia.

Being the only national park in Slovenia, Triglav national park is an immensely popular location in the country, as its towering Julian Alps loom over expansive and richly diverse valleys, the divine Winter landscape providing ample space for a wide variety of cold-weather activities.

It is possible to take part in this activity every day from 15th December to 30th March. The complete duration of the itinerary is 5 hours.

Picking you up from your accommodation in Bled, the activity commences at 8am to ensure we are ice climbing in the best part of the day! Our insider knowledge means we will find the optimal spot for ice climbing in the area, whilst also providing unrivalled, awe-inspiring views.

Once all the technical equipment is dispensed, we will make you familiar with all the important safety equipment to be used, as well the primary principals and techniques of ice climbing itself.

After that, it is time to commence the ice climb! The climbing will take place on a spectacular frozen waterfall, looking like something straight out of a movie, and it will be a stimulating and rewarding challenge.

The pay-off of the climb is when we reach the top, as the marvellous and sensational views over the national park are truly wondrous, and breathing in the fresh, cold air whilst up there will make you feel never more alive!

The activity then ends, and we drop you back off at your accommodation hopefully having whetted your appetite for more ice climbing!

Learn this awesome activity in Slovenia and you can ice climb around the world – book now to gain this experience!

Another fun activity to try is snowshoeing, which I also offer as a half-day activity in Slovenia here!

Alternatively, why not try a  Wintertime day hike in the Julian Alps here!

About the Guide

 
 

I’m a certified IFMGA mountain guide and canyoning guide living in the small and famous town of Bled, in Slovenia.

I started rock climbing at the age of 5. From that time on, the mountains became my playground. During my childhood, I took part in many rock climbing competitions. When I was 12, my twin brother and I did our first multi-pitch climb on a 350 m wall.

By the age of 16, I started competing in ice climbing world cups and later on skydiving junior world cups. In fact, in 2008 I became the world champion at the UIAA Ice Climbing Overall Ranking in speed ice climbing.

I climbed in many different countries like Peru, South Korea, Switzerland, France and Italy. However, Slovenia is the place I like the most.

Among other significant achievements, I did the first winter ascent (from the bottom of the wall) in Sphinx, the most difficult route in the mythical North Face of Mt Triglav. Besides, I got the first place for males at the IFMGA International mountain guide climbing championship in 2017.

I like sharing moments with people, especially in mountains. Feel free to join me in the highest mountains, steepest walls and many other Alpine wonders. I’m flexible, so we can also research places in other countries worldwide. Deep canyons, emerald rivers, beautiful mountains, great people, a good laugh, you name it.

I look forward to meeting you!
