Description

On this full day trip in the beautiful Julian Alps, you will have the chance to learn how to properly ice climb.

The Julian Alps are full of gorgeous natural landscape, majestic peaks, and stunning views. They also rest within the borders of two wonderful countries, Italy and Slovenia. As a result, depending on where we choose to go, you will definitely get a unique experience. Some areas include the lovely towns of Bled and Kranjska in Slovenia, and the picturesque town of Tarvisio in Italy. However, despite the glorious differences between these places, the one thing they all have in common is some amazing nearby ice climbing.

It is an exhilarating experience making your way up what was once a furiously flowing cascade of water. It is also an experience that requires a great deal of practice, patience, and skill to master. And while you won’t become an expert after just one day, I will teach you the basics. I will help you gain confidence by way of a step by step method. Thus enabling you to continue learning, and continue practising until you master this wonderful winter activity.

My first and primary goal of this trip is not only teaching you the basics of how to ice climb, but to also teach you how to do it safely. I will make sure you are using the proper equipment, while also practising the basics safely, at all times. Due to the potentially challenging nature of ice climbing, participants should be in good physical condition as well.

So if you want to learn how to ice climb, and you want to do it within the gorgeous Julian Alps, just send me a request, and let me guide you.

I also offer another ice climbing trip in the Dolomites as well.

More info

Participants must bring proper winter boots, winter clothing and gloves. For participants who would like to experience some additional ice climbing practice, there is also the possibility of organising an evening ice climbing session on the Mojstrana artificial wall, which is fit for both beginners and experts.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was still a child when my passion for high altitude began and grew with me. I was born in Trieste, Italy. Still young, I was carried by my parents, passionate trekkers, onto the mountains.

In the following years, I did all the activities one can do on mountains; from rock climbing to classic rock routes, to high altitude, to ice falls, to ski-touring, to free-riding, to spending every period of my free time wearing climbing shoes, ski-boots or crampons; the different equipment depended on the season I was in.

This passion for open spaces drove me and helped me make solid and long experiences in every kind of mountain activity there is. I graduated in Sports Science in order to pave the way to becoming an Alpine Guide.

Passion for outdoor life; independent of which activity you are doing—this is what I promote. Climbing, skiing, mountaineering, these activities are not a gym where we show off to others. They are reason to travel and explore new places that don’t belong in our ordinary, everyday life. They are a way to live as true adventurers. During any mountain trip, I take in the beauty of nature and enjoy relaxing in it.
