More Info

Slovenia is a small country in Central Europe, with a short coastline to the Adriatic Sea. Over half of its territory is covered by meadows and forests, while the mountainous areas lie to the northwest. Often overlooked when traveling through Europe, Slovenia is fast-growing as a top destination among outdoor lovers. Less crowds, breathtaking natural sceneries, lower prices and a broad offer of all-year-round activities, make it a truly gem. Besides, Slovenia has a strong winemaking tradition, including the world’s oldest vine in the city of Maribor.

Mitja was fantastic!!! Very proffesional and obviously very knowlegeable in the area and the climb. He was very
patient with me being a beginner in climbing and helpful when I was having difficulty in parts of the track. I feel like we could not have chosen a better guide. A great guy as well. We did have a little issue with the start time/date of our hike. I’m not sure if that was to do with the timezone in the southern hemisphere when we booked our climb. Thanks for the unforgettable experience. Mary and Mick
We first hesitated to take a guide. We are both young fit people but don’t have experience in hiking a
mountain. But wauw were we glad we had Mitja! He made sure we were safe the whole time (and that wasn’t always a giving (thunder storm aproaching, snow so we coudn’t secure ourselves on the mountain,..). We did things we couldn’t have done if we hadn’t had Mitja with us. Great experience. Wish we could take him to all our mountain trips!
Great guide, great weather and thus a wonderful experience! Thanks Luka 🙂
Dennis Van der Vorst for Triglav private guided climbing tours
Climbing with Mitja was such a great experience! There was still some snow on the mountain and there had been
strong thunderstorms the day before we left, however Mitja was very reassuring and kept in regular contact leading up to the trip re details and weather forecast. We felt 100% safe trekking with him, and had the most amazing time!
Danielle Archibald for Climbing Mount Triglav (2864m)
Our day with Jan and Youna (I’m definitely spelling their names wrong, sorry) went very well, he made sure to
check our skill level and chose climbs based on it. He also offered tips on how to tackle climbs and was very attentive to our safety. A great plus is helping us take photos with his amazing camera. Great day out on the rocks!
Unfortunately the conditions were too tough to climb Mount Triglav but Mitja suggested a great alternative trip which challenged us
and gave us an unforgettable experience in the Slovenian mountains! Highly recommend Mitja as a guide – he was one of the main reasons that we enjoyed the trip so much and we always felt safe in his hands. Overall an unforgettable experience and would highly recommend to anyone out there looking for a challenge.
We cant do the climb with the bad weather. The explore share team and Mitja answer at your question very quickly
and they are friendly. Sad to not do the climb but good service !
Mitja was an amazing Guide,so glad my son and I chose him to do this winter climb. Mitja has so much
knowledge about the climb and his expertise is valuable. We felt safe at all times and Mitja continuously provided encouragement and advice. Would recommend Mitja to anyone looking for a guide
Booking the guide was a simple process. Having a guide on the mountain climb and experiencing the mountains in those
conditions was the highlight of the trip. I would recommend to anyone going to Slovenia. Thanks.
Dean is a super experienced guide, he is very qualified to do all sorts of mountineering too if you are
interested to try. I had a good time learning how to do snow shoeing and he is very patient in teaching me and assessing my abilities to suggest different routes which is suitable for my build and stamina. It was great and safe to have him as a guide because he knows the terrain well and that is good to know.
We had an amazing time. Our guide gave us many information about the regions flora and fauna. Even though the
sight at the very top wasn’t so good this day, the climb up was vey exciting. Thanks a lot.
I booked the Triglav winter climb and the communication via email was perfect. My tour guide was Luca, who is
definitely recommendable. It was fun and I felt safely all the time. We had good weather conditions and could therefore climb the Triglav within one day. Thanks for this awesome adventure!
Jonas Obermaier for Mount Triglav guided winter climb
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, met with all my expectations and beyond. Our Guide was excellent and provided an excellent
experience. The hut was great and the staff there so helpful. The ascent of Triglav itself is a beautiful Alpine tour and a very interesting route and we were further blessed with excellent conditions on summit morning which made it even more memorable. I can highly recommend this tour to any developing Alpinist.
Andy Wheatstone for Mount Triglav guided winter climb
Mitja, Marko and luka were on their game and adapted to a varied group. I feel they delivered excellent value
for money and wouldn’t hesitate to book their services again in the julian alps or dolomites. Ben Hooper- Australia.
Benjamin Hooper for Mount Triglav guided winter climb
A really excellent service provided by Mitja, who sourced the fantastic mountain guide Peter Jeromel. Both provided superb advice
and we were able to create a challenging but achievable climb of Triglav in winter conditions.
