Climbing routes for everyone
Slovenians have climbing in their blood, which is proven by the many virgin peaks conquered by Slovenian mountaineers in the highest mountain ranges in the world and also by the world-class achievements by sport climbers who have been at the very top in the world for years. No wonder that in Slovenia you can find many opportunities for minor as well as major climbing adventures.
In addition to the mountaineering routes in the Slovenian mountains, you can also encounter natural and artificial climbing sites and climbing centres with routes of varying degrees of difficulty. In recent years, via ferratas have become a real hit – these are secured climbing sites, which can be climbed by virtually anyone. Take your climbing equipment and helmet, enter a climbing paradise, and the sky will be your limit.
