Type of Trip




    Mount Triglav (2864 m) is Slovenia‘s highest peak, and also the highest peak of the Julian Alps. There are many great spots for ice climbing in this area, forming at the beginning of every winter.

    Ice climbing on waterfalls started in Canada and Scotland in the 1970’s. But already in the 1980’s, this sport had become very popular and expanded to many of the Alpine countries. Nowadays, if you are a climber and you like being in the mountains during the winter, ice climbing is a must!

    Ice climbing can be for all ages, whether you are or not experienced. I can design a program to fit your level, adapting it to your wishes, as well as your abilities.

    For example, I can offer for:
    – beginners: Matuljški slapovi, Tamar, Prednja glava…
    – more experienced: Prisank, Lucifer…

    Please get in touch with me if you want to experience ice climbing in Slovenia. I will be very glad to guide you here and enable you to progress!

    Or, if you want to experience a great climbing trip during the week, you can join me for some rock climbing in this region!

    About the Guide


    I am a UIAGM mountain guide, ski instructor and sports teacher and the current president of the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association.

    I am still the only guide who can make a living working exclusively in Slovenia. I climb Triglav more than 25 times per year, which means I have climbed the most famous peak in my country over 200 times.

    If you want to climb or ski in Slovenian mountains I am the right choice. I guide via ferrata, rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, hikes, heliski, freeride skiing and ski touring.

    Slovenia has good options for all of these activities, so you are welcome to take a look at my trips and find something for yourself. If you don't find anything let me know and I will see if I can help you!

    I speak English. Ich sprache auch ein bischen Deutsch. Parla anche un pocho Italiano e abla tambien un po Espanol.

    If I am not available to guide you, one of the super experienced guides in my team - Rok, Peter, Grega or Igor - will be your guide.

    I had an amazing experience with Mitja. From the start, he was very communicative and kept me updated constantly on the weather conditions at Triglav. However, things weren\'t ideal so I wasn\'t able to get to Triglav. Despite the change in plans, Mitja went out of his way and arranged new activities he felt would suit my interests. We ended up doing a via ferrata he personally set and climbing ice falls. It was so much fun - Mitja was great to chat with and he was very knowledgable about Slovenia\'s geography. I enjoyed every second of our trip and would definitely contact him again for another challenge when I go back to Slovenia!

    I have chosen Mitja three times as my guide in the Julian Alps and now I would not consider anyone else to lead me on my trips. Mitja is friendly, highly enthusiastic and is great at keeping you feeling at ease, even on the most exposed ground. He excels at reading his clients pace and ability, moving neither too quickly or slowly. Mitja obviously has an excellent knowledge of the routes in the Julian Alps (and beyond) as well an impressive level of technical knowledge. Mitja is excellent at English, never struggling to communicate what he requires from his guests. I would not hesitate to recommend him to guide you on any route, whether it be your first via ferrata or a bold north face climb.
