Kukova Spica, Slovenia, Guided Rock Climbing | Slovenia

Join IFMGA certified mountain guide Martin on a full day rock climbing trip on the beautiful Kukova Spica mountain in the Julian Alps of Slovenia.

Not specified

1 Day

May, Jun, Jul, Aug




There are many fantastic options for rock climbing in the Julian Alps, and the Kukova Spica (2,427m) is definitely one of the best. This wonderful peak has a great selection of thrilling rock walls that you can scale.

Along with the great rock climbing opportunities, there is also quite a bit of exploring to be done around the Kukova Spica. As a result, this day long trip will allow you to see a tremendous amount of the beauty found within the Julian Alps. There are glorious forests spread out as far as the eye can see and a variety of stupendous peaks to behold, and the views will only get better the higher you go!

The trip will begin in the Dolina valley (900m). From the valley we will make our way along a hunting trail between Veliki and Mali Crlovec for approximately 3 hours to the first ridge tower. At that point you will get to climb the walls of Kukova Spica for several hours. Afterwards,  we will venture across Gulets to Vrate, which will take approximately 3 hours. Hence making this trip a fun, full day affair.

The level of the rock climbing during this trip is between 3 and 4, so there will be some challenging areas. As a result, participants should be in good physical condition. Also, some prior rock climbing experience would be a plus.

If you love scaling rock walls, while exploring fantastic mountain ranges, then this trip to the Kukova Spica is for you. And in order to join me, all you have to do is send me a request, and I’ll happily set up a great trip for you.

Mountain Guide

I’m a mountain guide based in Bled, Slovenia. Climbing and alpinism are a big part of my life and I feel like mountains are my second home.

I was introduced to the mountains by my father, a mountain rescuer and a romantic alpinist. He made sure that I don’t see the mountains only as a sports playground but also as a place where a person can enjoy and get to know himself better.

Living in the heart of the Slovenian Alps gave me a chance to develop all disciplines of alpinism: hard rock climbing and wild ridges in the summer, sketchy mixed climbing and ski touring in the winter. I am fortunate that climbing took me on expeditions all over the world, from Patagonia to Himalayas. Since being on the higher ground is my second home, becoming a mountain guide came naturally.

As a mountain guide I want to share my passion for mountains in a respectful and friendly way. What drives me is bringing the beauty of higher mountains and alpinism closer to people who want to enjoy higher peaks but need safe guiding.

What people are saying about Martin



Every thing was okay Perfect professional guide ANDREJ, very good dates choosen with perfect weather conditions !!



We had an amazing time. Andrej is such a good guide, he has so much experience, we learnt a lot from him! We also felt completely safe even on those parts of the route which were a bit more difficult. The route itself is great for aspiring climbers. We had no climbing experience and felt it was perfect - you do climb the whole of the North face and there is almost no walking so you definitely get a good taste of alpine climbing but it is not too technical. It took us a long time, longer than expected, and we ended up staying in a mountain hut overnight and walking back the next day. Definitely do it but if you want to go the summit it might be better to book the two day trip as it a very long climb indeed (it took us 15 hours to get to the summit) - but of course totally worth it and the views are spectacular!



Brilliant trip we didn't do what we planned the eiger Because of the weather but he made every effort to make sure we did something else. We did the matterhorn and it was a brilliant trip guided really well, loads of knowledge. Thank you very much



Martin is a complete professional on and off the mountain. Always willing to share insights and knowledge about alpinism and climbing and made me feel comfortable and safe at all times. Whenever I had questions before the climb he would always be quick to answer with all the relevant information. The summit attempt of the Matterhorn was a success and Martin brought joy, knowledge and energy throughout the entire process.



Martin Zumer is an incredibly skilled climber who successfully guided me to the top of the Matterhorn. I felt safe with him for the entire trip, and I developed confidence in my own personal climbing abilities with his guidance. It was a lot of fun to climb with him and learn from him, and I would highly recommend him as a guide any day.
