Julian Alps

Are you looking for a challenging via ferrata experience in the Julian Alps? Then let’s go to the Vevnica Peak, in Slovenia, up the “Via della Vita” route!

Standing on the border between Slovenia and Italy, Vevnica (2,340m) is one of the most impressive peaks in the Julian Alps. With very steep slopes, ravines and crests, this mountain is a very difficult objective even for expert climbers.

On this day outing we will head up the Via della Vita ferrata, the hardest in the entire Julian Alps. However, we will be rewarded with amazing views of deep blue lakes and big mountains, such as Mali Koritniski Mangart (2,370m) and Mangart (2,678m).

Keep in mind that for this trip you need to have a good fitness level and some previous via ferrata experience. The descent is also challenging!

So, if you want to try an extreme via ferrata in Slovenia, please contact me. Let me take you to the amazing Via della Vita route!

Mountain Guide

I am a UIAGM mountain guide, ski instructor and sports teacher and the current president of the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association.

I am still the only guide who can make a living working exclusively in Slovenia. I climb Triglav more than 25 times per year, which means I have climbed the most famous peak in my country over 200 times.

If you want to climb or ski in Slovenian mountains I am the right choice. I guide via ferrata, rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, hikes, heliski, freeride skiing and ski touring.

Slovenia has good options for all of these activities, so you are welcome to take a look at my trips and find something for yourself. If you don't find anything let me know and I will see if I can help you!

I speak English. Ich sprache auch ein bischen Deutsch. Parla anche un pocho Italiano e abla tambien un po Espanol.

If I am not available to guide you, one of the super experienced guides in my team - Rok, Peter, Grega or Igor - will be your guide.

What people are saying about -Mitja



Mitja was an amazing guide and especially a great companion on this tour. Mitja was easy to communicate with when planning the trip, well reflected about conditions and honest about best possibilities on how to spend these days in Slovenia. Mitja is a caring character giving all of us a feeling of beeing welcome on the tour. He adjusts his walking & skiing to group capabilities and is flexible with any planning - you get the feeling that it is "your tour". He knows the terrain extremely well and will share a lot of information about the surroundings. He took us to amazing sunsetting spots just next to Triglav Mountain for a last decent of the day and is only one of two guides having stored equipment in the remote mountain hut in the middle of Triglav National Park. Mitja is fun and communicative and easy to get a connection with. However he also leaves space for any character and does not try to "entertain" continuously which we highly appreciated. We can absolutely recommend and to reach out to Mitja for any trip in the Alps and in Triglav National Park especially. All the best from Germany, Lukas & Martin



Actually, due to the weather conditions, there are no ice for climbing. Mitja was very nice to offer us other options. We chose hiking in snow near Vogel instead. Mitja was very nice and professional. He provide sufficient gears and useful advice. Walking in snow was hard to balance, and the wind was very strong upside. But the view was magnificent and worthy. It was a very unique experience!



Mitja is a great guide! Knows the mount by heart! It was the best mountain experience of my life, thank 🙏🏻



Our guide Matea was very knowledgeable and personable. Even with varrying levels of experience and abilities within our group, Matea was able to make it an enjoyable experience for all. I am very thankful for his leadership and recommendations and decisions as a guide to keep us safe and make the hike as successful as it could be.



Fantastic all around. Mitja was a great communicator. Our guide Matic was patient (I'm a slow hiker so we did a private group my husband and I) and also motivating. I felt extremely safe throughout the hike with Matic taking into account the changing weather conditions and our physical condition to make it a really enjoyable accomplishment. I highly recommend!!
