Mountain Guide

The first time I experienced being in the mountains, I felt like I was floating between reality and dreams.

Endless snow slopes, steep rock faces... I’m passionate about them and I still find them mysterious and enigmatic, always exciting, never the same.

I’ve been on eight expeditions to South America and reached the top of more than 30 peaks over 6000 meters. I also climbed Aconcagua’s south face three times.

Besides, I went on several expeditions to the Himalayas, including Mt Everest.

Some places will always feel like home to me, like the mountains of Huaraz, Kathmandu, Chamonix and the ones in my own country, Slovenia.

If I am not there to guide you then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Danilo, can take care of you! I will let you know in any case.

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.
