Anniversary adventure-bike, hike, and paddle, Slovenia - Sep 9 - Sep 20, 2019

Traveler: Danielle C. - Local specialist: Katja Rogelj

We recently visited Slovenia to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We wanted a trip that was active but one that would also highlight the history and beauty of Slovenia. Katja helped to plan an adventure that exceeded all of our expectations. Every last detail was well thought out; we were able to explore the immense beauty of the country by foot, bike, and boat almost completely independently with the preset arrangements of gps directions and luggage transfers.

We recently visited Slovenia to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We wanted a trip that was active but one that would also highlight the history and beauty of Slovenia. Katja helped to plan an adventure that exceeded all of our expectations. Every last detail was well thought out; we were able to explore the immense beauty of the country by foot, bike, and boat almost completely independently with the preset arrangements of gps directions and luggage transfers. After big days of adventure we were able to rest comfortably at night in wonderful accommodations. We would recommend Slotrips to everyone. We certainly fell in love with sLOVEnia and hope to work with Katja again in the future to plan an adventure for our whole family!

Danielle,

Thank you so much for such a nice and overall overview of your anniversary adventure trip experience in Slovenia with Slotrips and me! More, your recommendation to others, to travel with us in Slovenia is priceless!
It was an absolute pleasure planning and making this trip with you. Moreso, because you expressed your interests and your prefered level of engagement for each activity, which helped me select suggestions, the most suitable experiences, logistics around it and to have the chance to treat yourself after a big day. It's great to see you found following the navigation easy.
A smile draws all over my face seeing, that I managed to pass my love for Slovenia on to you and that I'll have the opportunity to enjoy your companionship again (perhaps the next anniversary trip :)) and get to know your children soon!
Until then, I wish you all to have a reason to smile every day! :)

Slovenian alps to cvoast hiking adventure - 10 days, Slovenia - Sep 12 - Sep 20, 2019

Traveler: sydney l. - Local specialist: Domen Strle

I traveled through Slovenia for 8 days on a mostly hiking and occasionally biking itinerary. Domen, our local trip specialist from Ljubljana, did an excellent job planning even more activities than we had time to enjoy, so each day there were options. He responded to our many questions and concern with patience and in detail.

He responded to our many questions and concern with patience and in detail.

Slovenia offers stunning geography, wonderful food, and warm hospitality. Hiking through the Julian Alps and along the Soca River can be challenging with some steep inclines and miles of uneven surfaces to navigate. You need to be fit and wear good boots- all worthwhile when you’re immersed in the natural beauty.

We were provided with with a local phone and a detailed itinerary with maps and navigation for each segment of the trip. We had problems with the Android phone, but found that we could download the maps and itinerary details into our iPhones which worked better for us.

If we have to put a negative into this section, the only thing is the five day walk around the three lakes. This is so minor but here we go. Day two had us walking through very muddy trails which really were unsuitable, we should have returned to our hotel by the way we came. Day four had us walking along a path covered by fallen trees which really needed clearing. At times we thought we would have to turn back.
Thanks for a great experience in Central Europe.

Accommodations, hiking and biking suggestions, food at restaurants and huts -- all were excellent. We especially enjoyed our stay at Kekec Homestead in Trenta. And the private cave tour at Skocjan was perfect.

Slovenia hike and bike, Slovenia - Aug 20 - Aug 30, 2019

Traveler: Carol A. - Local specialist: Miha Gantar

Miha planned us a great trip. The only reason I didn't give him 5 stars was that he forgot to let us know more about the phone & it was frustrating for the first bit. However, the rest of his service was definitely 5 stars.

The trip was a great variety - w/hiking, biking choices as well as the visit to the beekeeper - which was fascinating & the caves. I am so glad we had the private tour of the caves.

Best summer hikes in the slovenian alps, Slovenia - Jul 9 - Jul 15, 2019

Traveler: Kelly W. - Local specialist: Spela Zupanc

This trip was the highlight of my time in Europe! I told them I wanted to hike and they planned a trip that was challenging in exactly the way I wanted it to be. They partnered with an excellent tour group located in Lake Bled who were extremely helpful upon my arrival.

Hiking to the top of Mt Triglav and staying in huts along the way was a beautiful way to experience Slovenia. I highly recommend it!

I appreciate Nico asking what my interests are, because he was able to tailor our trip exactly to that. Lidja met us at our hotel, bought us a drink and talked to us a long time about the itinerary. We really appreciated the phone and outlet converters. She was very watchful and responsive the entire trip. Our walking tour of Ljubljana helped us get our bearings of the town, which is the most beautiful capital city I've seen. We enjoyed the trip to and from Idrija because our driver was interesting and gave us a perspective of the different cultures in Slovenia. The mine was also a really good tour. Then we met Midja, who was the nicest driver and really went out of his way to give us the best tour. He took us on a few detours that turned out to be scenic as well as practical. He walked with us to the ticket offices, helped check us into our accommodations, and even accompanied us on some short hikes. We thought Postonja Caves was very touristy but still worth the trip. We absolutely loved Skocjan Caves and would go there again. The Predjama Castle was also awesome, but I would also have liked to take the tour below the castle through the caves there. I was glad Piran was kept on the list, even though it was not on my list, but Piran turned out to be a gem. I would have stayed another day had I known was a sweet place it is. Our rafting trip in Bovec on the Soca River was really fun and memorable. We got in a lot of walking/hiking and Midja took us to see interesting places on the way to and out of Bovec, such as Ravelnic, the trenches from WWI, and Kluza Fortress. Going over the Vrsic Pass with Midja driving was a very nice experience. He stopped several times for us to admire the scenery and stretch. Lake Bled was a bit more busy than we expected, but Midja took us on a wondrous tour on our way to Lake Bohinj. We walked one way along the Vintgar Gorge, and drove through a high plateau and around the lake. He taught us about local food in a restaurant up at Vogel. Our last day was spent biking through some of the most scenic Alpine villages on our way to Radovljica, to experience the Slovenian bees. Our bike tour guide was very considerate and I could have talked with the beekeeper in Selo for hours.

Hike & bike in slovenia - phillip & lucille, Slovenia - Jun 9 - Jun 22, 2019

Traveler: Phillip H. - Local specialist: Miha Gantar

Miha put together the exact trip that was asked of him. It was a 2-week adventure that showed off the beauty of Slovenia. The hiking was outstanding and right for this group. The cellphone-guided, hut to hut part was well organized. The huts were each a different experience and fun. The guided part of our trip, with Aljaz, was also much fun. Aljaz was bright, flexible, fun to be with, and led us on yet more adventures.

Miha, Aljaz, and Kimkim are all worthy of high praise and a very strong recommendation.

Fly fishing and hiking, Slovenia - May 31 - Jun 14, 2019

Traveler: Mary R. - Local specialist: Miha Gantar

This trip was incredibly good. Our specialist, Miha Ganter, listened to what we wanted to do and made the itinerary fit our desires. Plus he checked up on us on a regular basis. Our trip combined hiking for both of us with fly fishing for my husband. The fly fishing trips were wonderful, according to my husband, with good guides and beautiful rivers.

This trip was incredibly good. Our specialist, Miha Ganter, listened to what we wanted to do and made the itinerary fit our desires. Plus he checked up on us on a regular basis. Our trip combined hiking for both of us with fly fishing for my husband. The fly fishing trips were wonderful, according to my husband, with good guides and beautiful rivers. Miha had arranged the days so I could take some simple hikes on my own during those days - plus there was a spa! All in all, the itinerary from Miha took us to some incredibly beautiful places. We had no idea so much beauty, and such varied beauty, could be located in such a small country!
All the accommodations were good. Two stand out. First, Vila Park at Lake Bohinj. The proprietor talks to all her guests and finds out what they want to do. She was especially helpful to us as she knew exactly how long each hike would take (we were a little slower than the 'average' time). Most importantly, she made the very welcome suggestion that we take the bus to Lake Bled instead of driving. The bus stop was right next to her B&B, and we had a relaxed and enjoyable day without the hassle of traffic. The second place I want to mention was one of the highlights of my life of traveling -- Hotel Dobra Villa in Bovec. The place was lovely, the grounds were lovely, but the personal expertise and talents of the staff were just amazing. The person in charge made everything look beautiful. Not only did he run the B&B flawlessly, but he was the person who designed the gardens. The chef was amazing! Two of the best meals of our lives were there. I am so grateful to Miha for sending us there.
I also took advantage of the suggestions Miha made for activities. Two that stand out are the Flower Power Walk at Bovec and the stupendously exciting and beautiful rafting adventure with SocaSplash. There were so many rafting companies in Bovec and I would never have been able to figure out which one fit our desires without Miha's advice.
Driving the car was not a problem, but it did take us quite a bit longer than the estimated time. Sometimes roads were closed; sometimes we just missed turns. Our GPS card did not work as it was supposed to, but in talking to Miha we are the only people who have ever experienced difficulties. I think that the problems were caused by our phone which evidently didn't sync quite correctly.
We found driving in Piran to be very stressful. Miha had thought we could park for an hour or so in front of the hotel - which turned out not to be the case. The hotel wanted us to move immediately as they said the police absolutely loved giving parking tickets to tourists. We would recommend driving to the public parking garage and parking the car, then having the hotel shuttle come and pick you up. Piran itself was lovely! I had asked Miha to give us guidance for another hiking trip for our last day, which he did. However, it turned out his original plan was best -- we just sat under an umbrella and watched the people play in the ocean while eating ice cream. It was great.

A couple of our roads were blocked due to weather but there were alternate routes around. People /hikers are friendly, accommodation fantastic, and this is a great country to visit and a great concept to have a smartphone with trail details and a “demanding voice” to tell when off course. :)

Dear Susan,

I am honoured to have had the opportunity to create a lovely trip for you and am happy to see that overall you have enjoyed the tour! :)

The self-guided tours are truly a great way to explore Slovenia, moreover to peak into the unbeaten path areas, which lead to unmarked areas, where the detailed navigation takes care of the guidance. The beautiful sights, unknown terrain and crossroads might be overwhelming sometimes, thus the foot might set off course, which adds some distance and exploring the surrounding nature. But you have managed the challenge amazingly!
The marked trails lead along the frequently walked paths, maintained by the Slovenian mountain club and regional municipalities, hence we do our best to know the actual conditions and provide the detours to ensure safe passing for our travellers. The weather sometimes can cause changes, thus challenge a hiker to overcome a tree log every now and then, yet we are always here for you to provide solutions over the phone and applications for safe passing. We will keep trying to make our hiking trips even better, so the "demanding voice" won't feel the need to speak. :)

I am grateful for the recommendation of Slotrips and Kim Kim and excited to know that you loved our country, accommodations and people so much!

Thank you and welcome back to explore Slovenia with us - there is more! :)

What an amazing trip! A beautiful country with friendly interesting people and the perfect itinerary. It’s hard to express how impressed I was at every step of the way with the planning and organization that Miha, his team at Slotrips, and our guide, Aljaž, delivered. Bravo guys!!!
From the outset, the organization of the itinerary, with the explanations, and various options presented on the Kim Kim App let me know that I was in for a exciting experience. The group communication, coordination, and sorting out of various people’s issues worked beautifully and was very reassuring. We knew we were in good hands.
The personal itinerary that each person could save as an app on their smartphone and share with friends and family was such a great touch. We always had access to it and could easily use it to discuss what was coming next, what we wanted to do, and when and where we needed to be. Everyone was able to be on the same page at the same time. The restaurant recommendations were also wonderful.
The coup de grace was the personal smartphone with the trip information, GPS directions for the hikes and bike rides, emergency contacts, and local data plan. We never felt lost. Well okay... a few times ;-) where the trail was covered by snow or overgrown. But we were quickly and easily able to find our way and get back on track by following the blue line. What a way to leverage new technologies and set a new standard for adventure travel!!! Again, I was super impressed.
After the first few days of self-guided success, we wondered why we even needed a guide for the second half. Yet Aljaž brought us a whole new level of understanding and appreciation. He brought us to a few more out of the way places that would have been harder to reach on our own. He was very attentive and accommodating to the desires of the group. We learned a lot from him about Slovenia, it’s history, and culture. I found his excitement and love for his country infectious and he really became part to the group. We were sorry to see him go at the end.
You guys really hit a home run in my book. (and that’s coming from a very seasoned traveler). Thank you for a wonderful and very memorable experience! I will recommend you highly to anyone looking for a similar trip!

Self drive slovenia & croatia , Slovenia - Apr 9 - Apr 30, 2019

Traveler: Sacha R. - Local specialist: Aljaž Dvoršak

Aljaz, our tour specialist was fantastic! Our trip was planned exactly to our "wants"! We loved the suggestions from Aljaz and our accommodation everywhere was amazing. We had 3 weeks touring Croatia & Slovenia and would never have known all the little stops that made our trip so much fun. We loved the beer fountain in Slovenia - so cool. Kimkim is the best way to travel if you want to do your own thing but still know you have a bed booked and all the sites on offer if you're wanting to keep busy. Would definitely give Aljaz & Kimkim 6 stars and would use them again and again.

Checking the weather for road closures, making sure we had alternatives for rainy days, answering our calls on public holidays. While we thoroughly enjoyed the adventure of taking an independent trip, we were always supported, felt safe and never felt alone. Miha really knows Slovenia and takes the time to get to know his guests so that he puts together a great itinerary. His recommendations were wonderful from the daily adventures (which included some frequently visited tourist spots but also many off the beat more quiet but super spectacular spots) to restaurants and accommodations.

I loved seeing Piran but would have liked more time there and more information about the town and its history. I also loved the winery he took us to, which was a great experience and very different. The region was particularly beautiful. In general, again, I would have liked more information on our surroundings.
It may have been due to the fact that we didn't plan our trip too far in advance so I'm not necessarily faulting Miha, but I didn't know the details of what we were going to be doing on the two days with the guide and would have liked an opportunity to decide after a more in depth conversation about the alternatives. I had to call the guide a day before we were leaving for Prague to ask about it and discuss some possibilities since I hadn't heard from anyone.
I also really loved our hiking experience with Bostjan. He did a great job of figuring out what would be both interesting, scenic and manageable for me with some knee problems and not being as adept a hiker as my husband. He was an expert driver on the windy mountain roads and planned a really wonderful hike.
Things I didn't find so interesting: walk through a bird sanctuary, since it wasn't particularly culturally interesting and birds had already flown south, and spending time in Lake Bled. Again, I'm not necessarily faulting the tour company for spending time in Bled since I had heard a great deal about it and it is a pretty famous site. It certainly was pretty and we had some great meals in local restaurants, and also went to the nearby gorge. However, it's very crowded and touristy and I think I would have preferred knowing a bit more about that aspect of it through talking with the tour company, and maybe spending time in a home stay overnight in the countryside instead or something like that. My favorite part of visiting Lake Bled was actually taking a different route back from the gorge and walking through the forest and two local villages back to Lake Bled. We were not able to rent bicycles there because the only places that were open didn't have any small enough for me, but it turned out to be fine to walk.

Dear Laurie,

Thank you very much for your detailed reply.
I have to say that anything below a 5-star review is like a bullet straight into my heart and mind. I will not search for excuses why we didn't deliver a 5-star experience for you. I am very sorry you didn't get what you were expecting. We will definitely study, discuss and learn from your feedback to make sure our travelers return home not happy, hot happier, but the happiest!

The best recommendation would be using the service again and we will certainly be doing that. We like to be independent travellers but had found ourselves getting exhausted by planning and researching what to do tomorrow on our adventures. Now we have the solution. Let someone else who knows your chosen holiday location intimately do that for you. We gave Miha, the local man, our interests and guidelines and he planned the best experience I've ever had on holidays. Slovenia can take some credit too. Such variety all close to each other.

However, we were given a 54 page booklet of our trip, complete with suggested activities, websites, maps, phone numbers, opening times and tips that made our days travel so easy and accessible. Then, on meeting with Miha in Ljubljana, he handed over a phone, ours for the length of the trip, with all those things loaded and one tap and up came the route on google maps or the phone number to the local special restaurant that only the locals would know. It’s hard to say what was our favourite place in Slovenia. Miha chose totally different but equally enchanting destinations and accommodations from mountain farmhouse in the Julian Alps to Boutique hotel in Ljubljana to luxury resorts in Rovinj. A smorgasbord of interesting places to stay in a country that offers a smorgasboard of sites and experiences. So, I’d certainly recommend Kimkim and Miha in particular.

We loved all of our hotels, they were centrally located and all of the hosts of each hotel were very accommodating and friendly. All the hotels were wonderful, but there were some that really stood out; Pension Berc,(one of the best restaurants we have been to) and loved the free use of their
E bikes, the manager of the hotel 44, in Dubrovnik Damir was also outstanding. He gave us a lot of tips as to where to go and what to do and carried our suitcase up the flight of stairs. We loved that Miha gave us a lot of flexibility in the planning and our trip was a perfect balance of activities and relaxation time. There were so many favorite spots that we wouldn't have the time to list them all. However I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend Miha for your Slovenia and Croatia trip. All the guides spoke great English and were very friendly, and very knowledgeable. Kim Kim and their travel planners are the perfect way to go if you don't like to be in big groups and want to have the freedom and flexibility and most of all independence from a strict schedule.

The trip to Slovenia exceeded our expectations. Stasa planned an amazing itinerary and I did not realize the extent of the concierge service we would get. In a short week, we did an amazing hike in Triglav National Park, paddle boarded Lake Bled, wine tasted, rafted the Soca River, went canyoning, had a picnic/swam at a beautiful waterfall in Bovec to name just a FEW highlights. Stasa even took the kids out to pizza and gelato so the adults could have an amazing dining experience at Hisa Franko run by Anna Ros featured on Netflix Chef's Table.

Stasa's knowledge and history of the area is remarkable, she was fun, her logistics were impeccable, and was very flexible. The van that carried our crew of 4 adults and three children throughout the trip was spacious,comfortable, and clean.

If anyone is considering traveling in this area and in search of a guide, Stasa is a must! I could not imagine anyone delivering a more memorable experience for our families.

My 4 star review instead of 5 is due to a Kim Kim issue in which there seemed to be some confusion when two families are both on a single itinerary. Our billing was confused as an example and our family was billed the incorrect amount at first but that being said was corrected quickly when I discovered this and brought it to your attention.

The only thing that didn’t work for us was trying to use the phone gps he had given us, but we had detailed directions and maps. It was most likely a user error!😀. Our trip ranged from Bled, through the Julian Alps to Bovec, rafting down the Soca river, then to wine country and ended with the caves on our way to Rovinj. I will definitely come back to Slovenia, it’s a jewel!

My Trip to Slovenia started off with a request to “Solo hike through the alps, away from crowds and tourists". Miha contacted me and wanted to understand what I had in mind. Living in Silicon Valley and working in tech, my desire was to reconnect with nature and pursue a solo-hike through the Alps. I had envisioned doing this in Austria just based on its familiarity with my past travels.

As Miha and I exchanged messages, Miha who converted my desires into a well defined route to combine seeing many regions in Slovenia, which would allow me to decompress from the fast pace life in California and prepare for my solo hike through the Julia Alps, down into the Soča River Valley, through the Karst region onto Prian. He ensure everything I asked for was awaiting my arrival!

Once Miha and I talked live we settled on the plan and waited for weeks to pass and my flight to Slovenia, for an amazing 10 day trip.

I can summarize my trip by saying a Slovene saying; Sekira mi je padla v med!

Meeting Domen on my arrival, we had a great conversation reviewing maps and the route over beers and burgers and then I was cut loose to explore Ljubljana, where you can still feel the presence of past dragons and the vibe of a modern but well preserved historic city. From the street musicians to the open cafe's and restaurants to eating carniolian sausage at a very small sausage shack (Go there to find it, you will know when you see it along the way to the Castle over the three bridges).

Then onto Lake Bled, 6 kilometers around the lake, meeting Bobbi the artist who paints with watercolors, to experiencing the fairytale setting of the surrounding area. You do not pass up wood-fired traditional meals or the amazing cream cake you can learn about. My stay in Bled was a stepping off point to finalizing my gear and pack, since the next day was on to where my hike would start, on a ridge on the border between Austria and Slovenia.

Getting dropped off in the woods with a short hike up to the border ridge, onto Vosca Peak to start my path through the Julians, to visit Tonka prior to getting to Vrsic pass, hiking along the Soča river, overnighting in a hay barn at a local farm and onto Bovec, then to a Winery older then the United States and Caves where the Reka flows underground, onto Prian with Aljaž to hike sea cliffs and swim in the Adriatic!

Every aspect of the trip exceeded my expectations, the friendly culture, amazing people I met along the way, the nature, food and local beer. I rarely noticed the weather, but thunder does make you hike faster off the peaks :). I cannot wait to return to share this trip with my wife and to introduce her to all my new friends.

My trip can be summed up in one word; Zaklad!

Amazing crew of people at SloTrips, I cannot wait to reconnect with them on my next trip to Slovenia and possibly Croatia! Everyone should strive to take a hike in Slovenia in their lifetime and reconnect with nature and a great culture forged over many thousands of years. You are in great hands with the Miha and the SloTrips team!

We were also impressed by how well Domen and Anja worked together as a team.

Slovenia is an extremely beautiful country with a wide variety of landscapes and we loved them all - the mountains, the lakes, the valleys, the meadows, the waterfalls, the underground caves and amazing cave kayaking experience, wine country, the Adriatic coast, the super charming towns, the lovely farmhouses, ...We will be recommending Slovenia and your awesome team to all our travel crazy friends!

Polona and Luka organised the day well and I enjoyed my time rock climbing. Siggi was very good at getting back about the plans promptly.

We had an absolutely wonderful time. The planning and logistics were impeccable by Miha. Lodging and venue selections exceeded our expectations.

The best selection was picking Domen to be our guide. He was the consummate guide and host for our two days on the road. Knowledgeable, passionate about his country, personable and flexible. Besides the main venues we wanted to see, he took us to out of the way “local” spots and venues so we saw amazing natural beauty and had time to interact... read more

We hated to leave!

Finally, thanks to Urban Hotel for refunding our first night due to flight delays, and special thanks again to Miha for arranging transport for our son on his last day.

Trip to slovenia, Slovenia - Aug 1 - Aug 6, 2017

Traveler: Mohammed I. - Local specialist: Polona Juricinec Cesen

Monika was the strongest asset here. She knew the country in and out and is an x-pro skil jumper. The rest of the tour team was amazing as well.

Polona, Monika, Ales, and Siggi were all really amazing people to work with. I interacted with all of them via a Whatsapp group chat and they were there anytime I needed anything.
