The Valley of Popular Climbing Sites

The steep walls surrounding the Vipava Valley and the gorges cut out by streams and rivers have provided some incredible rock faces that attract climbers from both far and wide. They are drawn to nature’s playground, which offers the ideal routes for both practice and serious ascents. The mild climate even makes it possible to climb on warm faces during the winter, while a shady rock face can be found to beat the summer heat. Once they reach the top climbers are rewarded with stunning views of the majestic Adriatic Sea and towering Alpine peaks.

  • Climbing. All year round.

    Sunny Winters

    The most beautiful climbing routes in the Vipava Valley face the southwest. The strong influence of the Mediterranean climate provide great conditions for climbing, while the high number of sunny days has put these walls at the very top of the list for sport climbers. When the weather in the highest mountains goes sour, the Alpine routes in the Vipava Valley provide welcome relief for practicing Alpine style climbers.
