The Julian Alps are full of great climbing opportunities all year round. However, depending on the time of year, the experience can be extremely different. And on this winter season trip, I would like to guide you to the summit of Skrlatica (2,740m) via its North Face.

Despite this trip following one of the easier routes, during the winter this climb can still be a challenge. There are weather conditions, snow and unpredictable ice to contend with. As a result, I will see to it that you are properly guided every step of the way, so you reach the summit safely. And once you reach the top of Skrlatica, you will be able to enjoy some spectacular views. And because this is a winter trip, you will get to gaze out at the snow capped peaks of the Julian Alps, as well as the gorgeous Slovenian landscape below, blanketed in beautiful white snow.

The trip will begin Krnica, and from there, we will make our way to the Great Dnina Kugi’s bend. Afterwards, we will make our approach to Skrlatica. The ascent should take approximately 4 hours. And after you’ve enjoyed the great views from the summit, we will then make our way back down to the Kotla before returning to the base of the mountain.

If you want to push yourself on a challenging, but still accessible winter climb, then this full day adventure to the top of the Skrlatica and back down is for you. The climb is exciting, and the views of the Julian Alps are magnificent. So send me a request, and let me guide you on this great ascent.

Mountain Guide

I’m a mountain guide based in Bled, Slovenia. Climbing and alpinism are a big part of my life and I feel like mountains are my second home.

I was introduced to the mountains by my father, a mountain rescuer and a romantic alpinist. He made sure that I don’t see the mountains only as a sports playground but also as a place where a person can enjoy and get to know himself better.

Living in the heart of the Slovenian Alps gave me a chance to develop all disciplines of alpinism: hard rock climbing and wild ridges in the summer, sketchy mixed climbing and ski touring in the winter. I am fortunate that climbing took me on expeditions all over the world, from Patagonia to Himalayas. Since being on the higher ground is my second home, becoming a mountain guide came naturally.

As a mountain guide I want to share my passion for mountains in a respectful and friendly way. What drives me is bringing the beauty of higher mountains and alpinism closer to people who want to enjoy higher peaks but need safe guiding.

What people are saying about Martin



Every thing was okay Perfect professional guide ANDREJ, very good dates choosen with perfect weather conditions !!



We had an amazing time. Andrej is such a good guide, he has so much experience, we learnt a lot from him! We also felt completely safe even on those parts of the route which were a bit more difficult. The route itself is great for aspiring climbers. We had no climbing experience and felt it was perfect - you do climb the whole of the North face and there is almost no walking so you definitely get a good taste of alpine climbing but it is not too technical. It took us a long time, longer than expected, and we ended up staying in a mountain hut overnight and walking back the next day. Definitely do it but if you want to go the summit it might be better to book the two day trip as it a very long climb indeed (it took us 15 hours to get to the summit) - but of course totally worth it and the views are spectacular!



Brilliant trip we didn't do what we planned the eiger Because of the weather but he made every effort to make sure we did something else. We did the matterhorn and it was a brilliant trip guided really well, loads of knowledge. Thank you very much



Martin is a complete professional on and off the mountain. Always willing to share insights and knowledge about alpinism and climbing and made me feel comfortable and safe at all times. Whenever I had questions before the climb he would always be quick to answer with all the relevant information. The summit attempt of the Matterhorn was a success and Martin brought joy, knowledge and energy throughout the entire process.



Martin Zumer is an incredibly skilled climber who successfully guided me to the top of the Matterhorn. I felt safe with him for the entire trip, and I developed confidence in my own personal climbing abilities with his guidance. It was a lot of fun to climb with him and learn from him, and I would highly recommend him as a guide any day.
