More Info

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.

 

 

 

Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

During the spring, temperatures are quite pleasant, but get colder with more altitude. Rain is not infrequent either. During the summer, temperatures are moderate, but can get all the way up to the mid-30s. In autumn, temperatures become quite pleasant again. Rain is less common during these months.

How long should I stay?

This depends on what you would like to do and how much time you have. Many guides offer single and half-day via ferrata trips. Other guides offer half-week long courses or a week’s worth of via ferrata trips to different spots around the country. A week should be enough time to experience all the top spots.

Blaz was an incredible guide! Was very informative about the history behind the area and did a great job of making sure we had everything we needed for a great climb! Took so many pictures of us along the way and was a delight to speak with all the way!

Blas was great! He was really patient with us amateurs, never rushed us and even on the way down the mountain constantly slowed dow/stopped to allow everyone to catch up. For 2 people in our group Ferratas are new and they both fell in love with it! We will definitely be back and can’t wait to have Blas as our guide again!

We had a fabulous trip with Blaz. Highly recommend it. No mean feat to inspire our 9, 14 and 17 year olds at the same time and leave us all feeling well exercised and challenged. The early start (rejected 5am offer in favour of the more relaxed 6am!) meant even the grumpy 14 year old learned the benefits of climbing up to the beginning of the actual via ferrata before the heat set in. Breakfast up a mountain looking down on the cloud filled valleys at 8am was a real treat. But then the proper fun began. Roped together and often secured to the rocks with carabiners on the fixed wires, we climbed up gulleys and along rock faces that we could not possibly have tackled without Blaz\'s encouraging leadership. Along the way he delighted the boys with tales of Slovenian history and had constant stories to distract our young daughter. His photos provide a great reminder of the day (ok, long morning) and meant we didn\'t need to worry about cameras, and he and Igor (our second guide) made very good company over a well earned cuppa and pancakes at the Vrisic pass cafe at the end. Not cheap, but well worth it. We\'ll be back.
