Mountain Guide

I have been a mountain guide since 1990. I started going to the mountains since I was very young. I was a competitive skier and covered most of the most challenging classic routes of the Dolomites and the Mont Blanc. I am an IFMGA-certified guide and I have also worked as a mountain rescue volunteer and helicopter rescue technician in 1985. Some say that my greatest gift is patience and practicity. Personally, I look for a good and harmonic relationship with people, to allow my clients to enjoy a satisfying mountain experience.

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.
