Learn the basic skills of mountaineering and via ferrata in this 3-day course in Logarska Valley, led by Danilo, IFMGA mountain guide.
Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct
The Logarska Valley is a beautiful alpine region in the north of Slovenia, close to the border with Austria.
Also known as Logarska Dolina, this valley in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps is the perfect setting for this mountaineering and via ferrata course. Rivers, hidden gorges and peaks covered with snow will be part of the landscape as we traverse this south-eastern part of the Alps.
During 3 days, we’ll take different via ferratas in peaks like Ojstrica (2350 m) and Turska gora (2251 m).
Meanwhile, you’ll learn the basic skills of via ferrata climbing and mountaineering, related to equipment, belaying and climbing movements.
The starting point for this course will be Hotel Plesnik.
It’s important to mention that you need to have previous mountain climbing experience.
Please, contact me if you want to join me on this 3-day course in Logarska Valley. I will be glad to take you to the best spots of this less-known area of the European Alps!

I am a Slovenian IFMGA mountain guide with the ZGVS.
It was when I was 12 years old that I first climbed a mountain myself and by the age of 15 I had started rock climbing.
Since then, my ascents count up to around 1000, starting from Mont Blanc in the seventies and Triglav north face to Cho Oyu, and all over South America including 18 of the 6000m+ peaks including a first ascent on south face of Aconcagua.
I have climbed and travelled all over the world, Shivlinga, K2, Mt Everest, Manaslu, Shishi Panama, El Cap and sport climbing in Kalymnos and Cuba.
Skiing powder in great conditions and rock climbing under the sun are my motto!
Contact me if you'd like to have fun safely in the mountains with me! If I am unavailable then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Milan, can take care of you!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.
I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
