Type of Trip
I propose a 5-day intermediate climbing course in Slovenia aimed to those with previous climbing and mountaineering experience.
The course is a mix of theory and practice. However, the focus is on tours. By challenging yourself in hard rock routes in the Slovenian mountains, you’ll enhance your knowledge and improve your climbing skills.
I recommend this course to those which have been doing sport climbing and want to start climbing multipitch sport routes, as well as more difficult and long alpine routes.
By the end of the trip, we’ll attempt one of the biggest walls in the Alps: the north face of Mount Triglav. There are more than 100 alpine rock routes there, with different levels of difficulty.
One of the options is to take the easiest route, Slovenska smer (also called Slovenian Route). This route only requires a few pitches of climbing up to grade III and the rest is scrambling. We can also pick a harder route like Nemška smer (German route, III-IV, 1000 m).
No matter what route we choose, climbing the north face of Triglav is always a satisfying experience!
If you want to join me for this summer alpine climbing course in Slovenia, please contact me! We can discuss your best options according to your experience and wishes. I can also offer a shorter version of this course in case you don’t have many days.
Besides, if you are planning a trip to Slovenia during winter, you should also consider this winter alpine climbing course.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide
I was born in 1970 in Slovenia and I'm an IFMGA mountain guide since 2003. I started climbing when I was 15 years old at a local climbing club. Since then I became an ambitious and skilled alpinist, having accomplished numerous first ascents in Tien Shan, Himalaya, and Patagonia, and climbed extensively (over 900 alpine routes) in the Himalayas, the Alps, and in both Americas, at the same time working as a full time teacher in Slovenia!
In 2003 I became a full time mountain guide, and since then I've been guiding clients to the hidden gems of Slovenia and other Alpine summits all over Europe. In 2009, I also became the first Slovenian to guide clients up Mt Everest.
I would like to guide and show you the beauties of the hidden areas of Slovenian mountains, let it be in the Julian Alps or Kamnik Alps, away from the crowds. The mountains here are quite steep and dramatic, with sharp ridges, big faces and nice paths in between with some grassy meadows.
Here, it is an ideal field for hut to hut ski touring or free ride day tours or alpinism. It's also an ideal training ground for alpinism courses.
