Description

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.

About the 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!
