As a IFMGA guide and instructor with a big climbing background in the Julian Alps, Rok has prepared this 3-day course in the Vrata Valley. He'll teach you all the via ferrata skills and then, you will apply them by climbing Mt. Triglav!


3 Days

May - Oct


Mt. Triglav lays in the Julian Alps and it’s the highest peak of Slovenia. With a total altitude of 2.864 meters, that mountain is one of the greatest climbing spot of all the Vrata Valley. In fact, the Vatra Valley is also considered the most stunning alpine valley of the country.

With such scenery around, you have no excuses! Join me in this 3-day via ferrata course in Mt. Triglav. 

Then, here below you will find some details of the program:

During the first day I will teach you the basis of via ferrata climbing in a perfect area near the Vrata Valley entrance. You will know how to use the security equipment and all the necessary gear. Besides that, the course will give you some serious practice in different via ferrata routes.

Conforming the course progresses we will be approaching to the breath-taking North wall of Mt. Triglav for the biggest goal. Therefore, on the second day, a harder via ferrata route will lead us to the mountain hut where we’ll spend the night. It is located just at the top of the North side of Mt. Triglav. Now we are closer than ever!

Finally, in our last day you will climb the via ferrata route to the summit of Mt. Triglav, always under my supervision. I will guarantee you can take the best from that experience. Because of that, I’ll put all my climbing knowledge at your service. Once at the top, you will enjoy a incredible landscape and of course, the great satisfaction of having achieved such a big objective!

I have no doubt this 3-day via ferrata course will be really useful. I will teach you all the necessary techniques for future greater climbs.

All you have to do in getting in touch with me now. I will be waiting your message to plan your next climbing adventure in Mt. Triglav!

Mountain Guide

I grew up in Slovenia with Julian Alps as my backyard. Expeditions to Himalaya started when I was 17, started steep skiing at 15, climbing big walls at 13 and it was a natural progression to BASE jump and to become a mountain guide- a job that feeds my soul. I have been to several climbing expeditions to Peru, Kyrgyzstan, Tibet, Nepal and India.

I'm an IFMGA qualified mountain guide as well as an instructor for future guides, ski instructor, certified helicopter operator and a Heli Ski guide. Although my work took me all over the world my favorite place is still in the Julian Alps. Sharing the hidden places in my Home Mountains with my clients, guiding and teaching them to explore on their own is has been my biggest passion for the past few years.

Mountains are my passion. Winter or summer, climbing, flying through the air or skiing, it doesn't matter to me if I am guiding or having fun with friends. I simply get spaced out when I am in the mountains. Guiding for me is not a job - it is a state of mind and a lifestyle.

What people are saying about -Rok


We had a fantastic experience with Rok. We booked a 2 day trip to climb Mt. Triglav in June, 2015. The first 2/3rds of the ascent were pretty easy. During this part Rok was less of a technical guide, but was very valuable in setting a good pace to reach our hut on time, knowing when to stop for rests, knowing where the next mountain spring was to refill our water, and providing us with some information about the social history of the area, and some natural history about the mountains and forests we were walking through. It really increased my appreciation for the area and helped me enjoy the trek that much more. On the second day we climbed to the summit, and this is where Rok's experience and guidance proved invaluable. The trail led us along numerous ridges, with shear vertical drops on either side, and near vertical climbs up shear rock faces, some with, and some without a via ferrata to tie off to. I found it quite nerve-wracking, and would not have been able to do it alone. Rok was very calm and reassuring the entire time, giving gentle reassurance and encouragement, which really helped. In addition, he took our safety very seriously which gave me the confidence to continue to the summit. The landscape and scenery around Mt Triglav is absolutely stunning - I have a fantastic time, and would not have been able to enjoy it (or complete the trek even) without the help and guidance of Rok - he really does rock (I've been waiting this whole review to squeeze in that pun). I could highly recommend Rok and Vertical Adventures to anyone looking to do some exploring and adventuring in Slovenia.



We enjoyed our trip immensely. Highly recommend Rok Zalokar as as guide. Very knowledgeable and patient with our group of climbers.


We had a great ski touring experience! Well planned, brilliant and nice guides - an awesome and recommendable company for everyone interested in adventures and life-long memories.


Thank you Rok, for an amazing climb up the northern wall of Triglav. Breathtaking scenery, great company and most importantly world class guidance which made the difficulties seem easy. A memory for life!



Rok was an amazing guide. He showed us an amazing place to climb and really pushed us to our limit. Highly recommend!
