About the guide

I started with hiking first as a student and during the years with mountaineering, climbing, ski touring and more.


Now I live in the most beautiful village under our highest mountain of Triglav in Julian Alps and I started guiding long time ago first in Slovenian mountains and since I finished UIMLA course I guide abroad too.


We are guiding mostly in Julian Alps but also in Karawanks in Austrian Alps, in Croatia, and in Italy.


I prefer to guide smaller groups so that guests feel really comfortable in the mountains.


Please get in touch with me if you wish to be guided on any of our trips in the mountains. If I'm busy I will make sure that another great guide will guide you.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
