About the guide

guide profile img

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.
