Luka

Born near Lake Bled, in the heart of the Julian Alps, Luka was introduced to the alpine world as a child and would go hiking with his father who taught him about the flora and fauna in the region. With mountains being his profession and favorite pastime, you will find him up there most of the time in any season. Luka is also a passionate snowboarder, competing in freestyle and big air disciplines, as well as being the head organizer of the Freestyle National Cup of Slovenia. Luka has an exceptionally thorough knowledge of the local mountains, nature, culture, traditional food and will also give you the best tips on where to go and what to do after the tour. On the rare occasion when he is not in the mountains, he enjoys canyoning, rock climbing, and surfing.

Bine

Talkative and full of energy, Bine always ensures a good time in the mountains. His passion for outdoor sports has led him to the most inaccessible places, skiing almost vertical walls, and spending his free time searching for the best surfing and mountain biking spots. His adventurous spirit was honed in the Slovenian Alps, where you can find him during the summer. “I write Alps with a capital A”, he always tells his friends. “They’re my habitat and my strength; I love them for their pale limestone, their sharp peaks and their purity.” Bine is also a professional ski mountaineer, winning the National Slopestyle Championship seven times and guiding freeride and ski mountaineering tours in Chamonix.

Luka

Trailrunner, mountaineer, and ski mountaineer, born in the heart of Slovenian highest mountains. After finishing his career as a road cyclist, Luka committed professionally to the mountains. This guy, a former record holder of Triglav ascent, is a machine - 4x times winner of Slovenian toughest vertical run RedBull 400 Planica, top 3 in Vertical Kilometer race and top 15 in the world in ski tour racing. He also managed to climb 5 Slovenian highest mountains in less than 14 hours! Luka has a big passion for showing our epic mountains to others and sharing his love for them. High Slovenian mountains are his favorite playground, where he tests his limits on a daily basis. But don’t worry, he will make sure to adjust his tempo to your comfort level.

International Federation of Mountain Guides Association (IFMGA/UIAGM)

Certification, founded in 1965, is the highest mountain guide qualification in the world. In order to become a certified IFMGA mountain guide a high level of training – the highest in existence – is required in four different disciplines: rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, and ski mountaineering. Multiple years of intense alpinism exercise is required for candidates to apply for IFMGA training that takes an additional 85 days over 3-5 years. Proper guide training guarantees an international standard of mountain guides. Guides develop and are certified with a skill level that prepares them to work on any mountain range, whether they are already familiar with the mountain or not.

The Union of International Mountain Leader Associations (UIMLA)

Founded in 2004, is an international governing body that represents International Mountain Leaders across the world. One of the most important targets for UIMLA is to represent the profession at the international level, setting equal standards of qualifications for all International Mountain Leaders (IMLs). UIMLA guides undergo 53-day training over 3 years of various mountaineering skills in addition to several years of experience in the mountains. International Mountain Leaders guide clients to different mountains all over the world, leading them on high-altitude treks and secured mountain paths of varied difficulties.

Climb Triglav With Our Guides

A guide can be the highlight of your tour. They can make the difference between a good tour and an outstanding tour – one that you’ll want to talk about for years to come. This is the experience we want to give you.

Despite their popularity and wide range of visitors, Slovenian mountains often prove to be challenging climbs. Even if a route is marked as moderately difficult, the unpredictable nature of the mountains is not to be underestimated. Navigating in the fog, exposed sections, steep terrain and a multitude of possible routes demand a professional guide. We are all experienced Slovenian mountain guides who know the terrain like the palm of our hand, and we will be able to respond to any situation that might occur on our tour.

Apart from researching accommodation availability, choosing the appropriate route, monitoring weather conditions, and customizing the tour to match your capabilities and wishes, we will also show you useful hiking and climbing techniques. If you’re ever in doubt as to what to pack, we will be glad to give you a list of what you need and what you don’t need on your climb. We will cheer you on when the ascent gets tough and supply tips for how to best move across tricky terrain.

As the guides at Triglav Tours, we are passionate experienced mountain enthusiasts who work in the outdoor industry year-round and are dedicated to giving you an exceptional experience. You will find us to be incredibly knowledgeable about the local terrain, culture, food and customs, and passionate about sharing it with you – you’re in our back yard after all! 

To provide the highest possible standard of safety and professionalism for our clients, we all have outdoor leadership certifications and we continue to hone our skills on an ongoing basis through advanced guiding and leadership courses. 

There are two internationally recognized certifications for mountain guides. The UIMLA Mountain Leader and the UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide. A person that has the honour of carrying either of those two certifications, has completed the toughest training in the world to be as competent as possible on the terrain they lead you through.
