    Secured wired routes (commonly known as via ferrata) are very popular in Slovenia. Discover some of the best spots for this activity in the Julian Alps and enjoy an exciting high-altitude experience!

    The Julian Alps stretch along the border of Slovenia and northeastern Italy. Due to its impressive mountains, lakes and valleys, this region is considered as an outstanding destination for mountain sports lovers.

    In fact, those seeking for challenge and adventure will be thrilled with the wide range of via ferratas in this region. You can find routes for every level, either for beginners or expert climbers.

    So here’s what I propose: we can go on a 1 or 2-day trip, choosing one or several routes.

    In fact, I can pick you up at your location in Kranjska Gora, Mojstrana or Bled and then take you back.

    Price per person (EUR)
    1 2 3 4
    Mala Mojstrovka (2332 m) Hanzova route On the steep face of this peak lies one of the most attractive via ferrata routes in the country: Hanzova Pot trail.

    Fun and adrenaline, though not suitable for those with fear of heights!

    280 150 117  100
    Prisank (2547 m) Kopiščarjeva route A popular route in Slovenia.

    The ascent involves climbing through a huge natural window. Because of that, it’s a very scenic via ferrata.

    330  200  167
    Prisank (2547 m) Hanzova or Hanza route It’s also on the north face of Prisank.

    Many people say it is the hardest via ferrata in the country.

    330 200  167
    Vevnica (2340 m) Via della Vita Route A very popular but extremely hard route on the Italian side of this peak. 350 215 167
    Mangart (2679 m) Via Italiana A hard and very exposed via ferrata on the north wall of Slovenia’s third highest peak.

    Although it involves a lot of effort, there’s a reward: stunning landscapes!

    270  165 125
    Montaz (2754 m) Pipan’s ladder A 60 m high and almost vertical steel ladder on the second highest peak of the Julian Alps, after Mt Triglav.  320  185  145
     Montaz (2754 m) Via Amalia route This hard ferrata will take you to the summit of Montaz in 6 hours.  270  200

    Please contact me if you want to enjoy one or several of these via ferrata routes. Whether you are a beginner or an expert climber, I can help you find the most suitable options for you according to your skills and experience.

    In addition, you can also consider these two via ferrata routes near the village of Mojstrana: Aljaževa route (ideal for beginners) and Mojstranskih Veveric route (for experienced climbers).

    About the Guide

     
     

    I am an aspirant iFMGA mountain guide born in 1980 in Mojstrana, a Slovenian village close to Mount Triglav, the highest mountain in the country at 2864 m.

    From an early age, my parents took me to the mountains during summer and winter. At that time, my father was part of a mountain rescue team in my hometown and was also going on expeditions to the Himalaya and the Andes, so he became a big inspiration for me. We went climbing, hiking, sport climbing and ski touring together. His enthusiasm truly influenced me.

    I went to Alpine school, then Mountain rescue team, I did the Alpinist exam and I became an Alpinist instructor. After that, I also studied to be a professor of Sport. Several years later, I decided to begin my mountain guide education and to become an IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide.

    Loved Slovenia and would highly recommend for those who enjoy the outdoors and walking. The via ferrata route was great for a morning hike. Stunning views and not too hard which was good given the heat that day. Our guide Borut (replaced by Gregor at the last minute as I had misjudged our dates so very much appreciated it) was lovely and made our trip even better.

    Grega was brilliant. An absolute legend. The climb was challenging but Grega made us feel safe and comfortable throughout.
