Before I started climbing, I spent my teenage years mountain biking and skiing in the Julian Alps. That’s what sparked my love for the mountain environment.
After a few years of pushing myself farther into new terrain, it became clear that there was only one way forward: upward! This realization marked the start of my alpine adventures, which led me to leave my bike behind and start walking, hiking, and then climbing.
Climbing made me see the mountains in a new way — nothing seemed unreachable now. You’re not limited to trails and easier off-trail terrains. You can go practically anywhere and choose your own unique route.
Being an alpinist also showed me the hidden corners of the Slovenian mountains — the valleys and climbing approaches I would have never visited otherwise. It also showed me that mountains can be enjoyed all year round. Winter is a very special time that gives you a totally different experience with beautiful views of an even more unique, beautiful and complex mountains.
I climbed all the important climbing routes in Slovenia and stood on almost all the iconic peaks, many times on Mt. Triglav itself. Most of my best climbing was done in the winter; I even managed to do some first ascents up our Alpine walls.
But it isn’t only the adventure itself that entices me, it’s also the planning aspect of it. When standing at the top of a peak on one tour, my eyes are looking at my surroundings, planning the next one.
The next logical step was sharing this passion of mine with others. From the many people I met along the way, I gathered an enthusiastic team of professional mountain guides and founded this company — Triglav Tours.

Slovenia’s mountainous regions are home to some of the most beautiful unspoilt nature in the world. The diversity of hiking trails and Alpine routes is complemented by spectacular views and rewarding peaks, and we know exactly where and how to ensure you get the most out of your experience.
The difficulty of climbing a mountain in Slovenia also varies immensely. There are some high peaks which are relatively easy, and then there are some to which we cannot ascend without being roped up and accompanied by an experienced guide.
There should be no worries that everyone can find the right mountain to climb here in Slovenia, anywhere from the Julian Alps, the Karawanks, or the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.
