Highlights

 
     

    The Soca valley is full of breathtaking, gorgeous landscape, some of the best you will ever see in Slovenia. And while it is a very popular destination in the summer months, where visitors can do everything from canyoning to sky diving, it becomes a completely different world in the winter. Thus why I believe this 1 day ski touring adventure is the perfect trip for anybody looking to explore this amazing area from a different perspective.

    This trip is very unique when compared to other ski touring trips because there are several different options as to where we can go. All of the options involve various combinations of the pearls of the area. Those combinations include Krn and Krncica, Planina Razor and its surroundings, and finally Planina Razor and Krn. We will make our choice based on the snow and weather conditions. However, regardless of where we decide on going, you will get to enjoy some truly incredible descents.

    Much of the ski touring you will get to enjoy in the Soca valley will take place above the beautiful Soca river. As a result, you not only get to enjoy great views of the natural landscape of the valley, and the nearby peaks of the Julian Alps, but also of this splendid flowing river.

    The Soca valley is a marvellous place to visit at any point of the year. And on this full day ski touring trip, I would like to show you how amazing it is during the winter. So if you want to enjoy some great descents in a variety of great spots, just send me a request. I would be happy to guide you.

    I can also take you for a day of ski touring in the Kanin mountains as well.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I'm an IFMGA mountain guide and also a mechanical engineer based in Celje, Slovenia. Over the past years, I’ve been on more than 700 alpine trips in the Western Alps, the Dolomites, Peru, Turkey and Greece. My favorite activities are climbing and skiing.

    In Peru, for example, I made a descent from the southern saddle of Vallunaraju (5696 m). Another challenging downhill on skis that I did was in the northern wall of Bavškega Grintavca and the massif Kanin.

    In addition to mountaineering, I enjoy practicing other sports like rock climbing, biking, whitewater kayaking and Pilates. I think these activities are a great source of spiritual and personal growth.

    I also love spending time with my family: my wife, daughter and our dog.
