Winter mountaineering in the Julian Alps

Winter mountaineering in the Julian Alps | Slovenia

Explore the beauty of the Julian Alps (and climb the iconic Mt Triglav) on this 6-day winter mountaineering and alpine climbing trip, together with Danilo, a local IFMGA certified mountain guide.

Not specified

6 Days

Jan, Mar




Join for a great adventure in the stunning peaks of the Julian Alps, combining winter mountaineering and alpine climbing.

In the Southern Alps of Slovenia we'll find excellent snow and ice conditions during the whole winter season.

During this 6-day trip, you'll be trained on the basic skills for winter mountaineering. Among other things, you'll learn how to test the stability of snow, walk and climb with crampons as well as using ice axes.

Besides, you'll also receive some lessons on clothing systems suitable to face cold temperatures in the mountains.

Some of the places we'll visit include Nad Šitom Glava and Mojstrovka (two accessible peaks above the Vršič pass), and Tamar (where we'll find several icefalls). We'll chose the locations for each day according to the snow and weather conditions.

These are the top reasons to join this trip:
  • You'll be surrounded by wonderful landscapes: hidden valleys and magical icefalls will be part of our traverse.

  • It's a great opportunity to learn how to move safely in the mountains during winter. You'll get skills that will prevent you from experiencing stressful situations.

  • You'll be guided by a professional mountain guide with extensive knowledge of the terrain.

  • Finally, the highlight of our trip will be reaching the summit of Mount Triglav (2864 m), the highest and most iconic peak in Slovenia.

Come with me an discover the outstanding beauty of the Slovenian peaks during winter! Send a request so we can start planning this trip together.

Mountain Guide

I am a Slovenian IFMGA mountain guide with the ZGVS.
It was when I was 12 years old that I first climbed a mountain myself and by the age of 15 I had started rock climbing.
Since then, my ascents count up to around 1000, starting from Mont Blanc in the seventies and Triglav north face to Cho Oyu, and all over South America including 18 of the 6000m+ peaks including a first ascent on south face of Aconcagua.

I have climbed and travelled all over the world, Shivlinga, K2, Mt Everest, Manaslu, Shishi Panama, El Cap and sport climbing in Kalymnos and Cuba.

Skiing powder in great conditions and rock climbing under the sun are my motto!

Contact me if you'd like to have fun safely in the mountains with me! If I am unavailable then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Milan, can take care of you!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
