With more than 90 rock climbing areas, Slovenia is a paradise for rock climbers. The town of Bled, at the doorstep of the Julian Alps, makes a great starting point for your adventure.

I propose to take you on half-day rock climbing trip, exploring some great climbing areas in the surroundings of Bled.

This trip is ideal for beginners (with little or no experience) and with an excellent physical condition.

A 10-minute drive will take us to our location for the day. I’ll teach you the basics of rock climbing and we’ll attempt six routes up to 25 m high and graded between 3-7a + (French grading system). We’ll spend 3 to 4 hours climbing.

About the guide

I’m a certified IFMGA mountain guide and canyoning guide living in the small and famous town of Bled, in Slovenia.

I started rock climbing at the age of 5. From that time on, the mountains became my playground. During my childhood, I took part in many rock climbing competitions. When I was 12, my twin brother and I did our first multi-pitch climb on a 350 m wall.

By the age of 16, I started competing in ice climbing world cups and later on skydiving junior world cups. In fact, in 2008 I became the world champion at the UIAA Ice Climbing Overall Ranking in speed ice climbing.

I climbed in many different countries like Peru, South Korea, Switzerland, France and Italy. However, Slovenia is the place I like the most.

Among other significant achievements, I did the first winter ascent (from the bottom of the wall) in Sphinx, the most difficult route in the mythical North Face of Mt Triglav. Besides, I got the first place for males at the IFMGA International mountain guide climbing championship in 2017.

I like sharing moments with people, especially in mountains. Feel free to join me in the highest mountains, steepest walls and many other Alpine wonders. I’m flexible, so we can also research places in other countries worldwide. Deep canyons, emerald rivers, beautiful mountains, great people, a good laugh, you name it.

I look forward to meeting you!

Our day with Jan and Youna (I'm definitely spelling their names wrong, sorry) went very well, he made sure to check our skill level and chose climbs based on it. He also offered tips on how to tackle climbs and was very attentive to our safety. A great plus is helping us take photos with his amazing camera. Great day out on the rocks!

Thank you so much for making this arguably the best part of our 2 week stay in Slovenia. We highly recommend Altitude Adventures. All the staff are friendly and the guides were experienced, encouraging and a pleasure to be around. We were given loads of pictures and the gear was comfortable. Thanks again.
