Description

Join me for this 5-day introduction to rock climbing and enjoy a unique experience in the mountains of Slovenia. 

During this course, you’ll learn the basic skills for rock climbing:

  • Equipment,
  • Belaying,
  • Rock climbing movements,
  • How to place equipment (like nuts and cams),
  • Lead climbing,
  • Abseiling.  

Our starting point will be the city of Kranjalthough we’ll be moving around different climbing areas every day.  First, we’ll reach the village of Bohinjska Bela. From there, we’ll head to the Adriatic coast to the village of Črni Kal and then to Turnc, near the capital city of Ljubljana.

Then we’ll travel to the rock climbing area of Bohinj Belvedere, at the heart of Triglav National Park. Finally, we’ll end our climbing traverse at Dolžanova soteska, in the Karavanke mountains.

Besides, some days we will visit Slovenian touristic attractions, like lake Bled, the old city of Piran and Savica waterfall.

For further details, you can find a complete itinerary below.

I recommend you to book accommodation in Kranj or its surroundings. This city is 10 kilometers away from Jože Pučnik airport. If you want to, I can suggest you some good places to stay.

Please, contact me if you’d like to sign up for a rock climbing course in Slovenia. I can answer your questions and help you organize your trip!

After taking this course, you can also test your skills on this 1-day rock climbing trip in the north face of Mt Triglav.
