About the guide

Guide profile image


Mountain Guide

I've been an IFMGA mountain guide since 2006 and have always loved all outdoor activities. I have always climbed and practiced sea sports.

I grew up in Trieste, the city that gave birth to great mountaineers such as Emilio Comici and Enzo Cozzolino, as well as being the city that hosts the Barcolana, the most popular and numerous sailing regatta in the world.

The activities that I propose convey my passions, in addition to the love of nature, respecting the environment, whether in the mountains or in the middle of the sea.

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.
