9-day active slovenia vacation that includes a few big/moderate hikes, Slovenia - May 27 - Jun 4, 2018
We had an amazing 9-day Slovenia vacation with kimkim and the local specialist, Miha and his company. Ours was a completely customized trip for a group of 11 adults.

Alex batchelor party, Slovenia - May 11 - May 13, 2018
Miha and his team were incredible and really made our trip. They had incredible ideas for activities (MTB tour of Ljubljana, SUP on Lake Bled, hiking in Triglav NP) and always executed perfectly. Our trip was 3-4x as good for thier involvement. I recommend them without hesitation.
