I am an IFMGA mountain guide, also certified by the JMGA, born in Slovenia. Slovenia is known as one of the major sporting countries in the world - I used to compete at the Olympics representing Slovenia in Cross-country Skiing. After I left Slovenia, I travelled all over the world and ended up in Japan, where I have now lived for more than 20 years, mainly because I love the beautiful Japanese mountains too much, and I feel privileged to be able to enjoy these mountains through the entire four seasons.
I am based at the foot of the Japan Alps, in Nagano Prefecture. In the winter, we go climbing or skiing around Mt. Fuji or Yatsugatake and in the summer, we can enjoy shower-climbing or canoeing. It is my absolute pleasure to also take you and guide you in my home country in Slovenia.
In addition to guiding the mountains, I also enjoy having the opportunity to teach mountain climbing skills to every level of climbers. This is because I want everyone to enjoy Japanese mountains safely.
I am the first non-Japanese mountain guide registered with the Japan Mountain Guide Association. Please contact me if you would love to have great experiences in the mountains in all seasons with me!
