    A part of the gorgeous Julian Alps, the equally impressive Kanin mountains are a fantastic highlight of Slovenia. Located near the Italian border, this collection of peaks is a great place to explore, climb, and ski, and for the purpose of this full day trip, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a thrilling ski tour within them.

    The trip will begin in a local ski resort that happens to be the highest resort of its kind in the country. The views of the range’s great peaks, including Visoki Kanin (2,587m), from the resort alone are worthy of a great day trip. However, for the purpose of this trip, the resort is just our starting point. From the resort we will take a short walk to the other side of the Soca valley and begin the ski tour. The routes we will take will depend on snow and weather conditions. But I can promise you that no matter which way we choose to go, I will take you to the best places, insuring you will have a great time.

    We will descent from heights of 600 to 800 metres. Thus giving you the chance to enjoy some great descents. You will also have the chance to visit a local village named Zaga during this trip as well.

    The Kanin mountains are a fantastic place to visit during the winter months. But they are an even better place to ski during those months. So if you would like to spend a day not only seeing, but experiencing these peaks, which are a true jewel of Slovenia, send me a request. I will do my best to see to it you have a great day.

    I also offer a 2 day ski tour at the Kanjavec mountain in the Julian Alps.

    About the Guide


    I'm an IFMGA mountain guide and also a mechanical engineer based in Celje, Slovenia. Over the past years, I’ve been on more than 700 alpine trips in the Western Alps, the Dolomites, Peru, Turkey and Greece. My favorite activities are climbing and skiing.

    In Peru, for example, I made a descent from the southern saddle of Vallunaraju (5696 m). Another challenging downhill on skis that I did was in the northern wall of Bavškega Grintavca and the massif Kanin.

    In addition to mountaineering, I enjoy practicing other sports like rock climbing, biking, whitewater kayaking and Pilates. I think these activities are a great source of spiritual and personal growth.

    I also love spending time with my family: my wife, daughter and our dog.
