Description of ice climbing Slovenia tour

What was the last time you said: “That was freaking epic!”? Well, the thrill of being high up on a frozen waterfall might just make you shout those words out loud.

Ice climbing might sound hard or dangerous, but it is first and foremost a fun experience that doesn’t require a lot of physical prowess or previous experience. Under the watchful eyes of our expert instructors, you’ll learn the very basics and climb your first frozen waterfall in total safety.

An experienced local ice climbing guide will assess the weather conditions and the skills of the group to pick the perfect waterfall. Not all waterfalls are the same every day - this way, we can make sure you get the very best spot on that day in all of Slovenia. If there are not good conditions in natural icefalls, we have an alternative  - the ice arena, perfect for any level of ice climbing.

If you’re looking for a truly unique experience, ice climbing will give you a rush of adrenaline and feel-good chemicals - who knows, it might even make you fall in love with it.

I’ve been ice climbing before, so I knew what I was getting into, but the guide adapted the climb to a pleasantly challenging experience. There was no rush and I felt really safe all the way. I have to say the scenery was spectacular and if you’re in the area, definitely give it a try.

Hello, mountains in Slovenia are so beautiful. It was my third visit. I went to Mount Triglav and I wanted to try something new this time. It was my first time ice climbing and I was a bit nervous. But our guide explained everything clearly and taught us the basics so now I want to go again on a harder level.
