Description

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!

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
