Via Ferrata in Slovenia

Climb the ‘iron path’ in this small but scenic country and enjoy a more remote side of the Alps!

From the top of the Julian Alps to the border town of Gorizia, there are plenty of places both to learn how to use a via ferrata properly as well as challenge yourself. Make your way to the top of Ojstrica (2350 m) and Turska gora (2251 m) in the Logarska Valley or straddle the Slovenia-Italy border, either way you’re in for a scenic treat here. Explore-Share only promotes mountain trips led by certified guides.

More info about Via Ferrata in Slovenia:

Slovenia is a small country in Central Europe, surrounded by mountains, breathtaking turquoise rivers, alluring valleys and even a coastline to the Adriatic Sea. Most of your via ferrata adventures will begin with a flight into the international airport outside of the capital, Ljubljana then a transfer via bus or rail elsewhere in the country. Via ferratas —protected climbing routes built with steel, cables and ladders— are becoming very popular in the country, especially in the Julian Alps and provide an exciting mountain experience. While there are different levels of via ferrata routes, easy and intermediate trips don’t require you to be an experienced climber and may also be an excellent activity to bring your family along! Mountain guides usually provide the equipment you need and will teach you the basic techniques
