I grew up in an idyllic village in the southwest of Slovenia and later moved to Ljubljana to study Tourism Destination Management. In my student years, I became an active member of Alpine Association of Slovenia, where I worked on several projects, and attended courses for mountain guides and alpinists.
I love outdoor activities, especially hiking, mountain biking and ski touring and I believe that Slovenia is a land of infinite opportunities. For the last decade, I’ve been experiencing exploring Slovenia as a challenge, finding new hidden gems with each trip I make.

Sep 19 - Sep 30, 2022
Domen and Slotrips put together a great itinerary and experience in lovely Slovenia. He customized a blend of hiking, biking, and rafting around my interests with many additional side options depending on time/desire. When the weather was rough the last part of my trip, Domen worked with local companies to rearrange times for trips. The GPS provided for hiking and biking was superior! Highly needed for some trails in the national park where trail marking can be confusing. Excellent... read more

Jul 27 - Aug 7, 2022
We are a family of five - children aged 19,17,15. Domen did an excellent job planning the trip for us and taking into consideration our preferences. Communication was very smooth. First a telephone conversation, followed by a few iterations by mail. He was quite flexible and happy to adjust according to our feedback. Trip turned out to be well thought out, with the right mix of activities and places to stay. Having the entire trip and the hike maps available in apps is great and very... read more
Fishing and Hiking in Slovenia
Jul 22 - Jul 30, 2022
We had a terrific 9-day driving tour through Western Slovenia, focusing on beautiful Triglav National Park. Domen Strle, our virtual tour guide and travel agent, chose excellent places for us to stay and activities including hiking, fly-fishing and touring. Without his intimate knowledge of the area and his responsiveness to our questions, we would have had a difficult time planning such a trip (our first to Slovenia). He quickly accommodated last-minute changes to our schedule (e.g., an... read more
Slovenian Alps to Cvoast Hiking Adventure - 10 Days

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.
Slovenia offers stunning geography, wonderful food, and warm hospitality. Hiking through the Julian Alps and along the Soca River can be challenging with some... read more
Trekking in Slovenia
May 11 - May 24, 2019
Slovenia was awesome. I loved the trekking - quite challenging sometimes, especially in the Alps/ mountains/ hills , but always interesting. The River Soca is beautiful and Piran is a gorgeous town on the Adriatic. But lots of other lovely places. Domen was superb. Always responsive and kept in touch to make sure I was ok. The accommodation and treks he organized were perfect. Thanks Domen, SLO trips and kim kim 😀 10/10. Nga mihi Karen, New Zealand.
Nature at a slow pace

Miha organised the trip so well to suit our style. He made it easy. Everything was organised from the printed itinerary to the mobile phone on loan! Nothing went wrong and we really enjoyed the hike.
Beyond the Alps
Jul 30 - Aug 9, 2018
We spent a wonderful two weeks driving around Slovenia, seeing the sights and taking lovely day hikes. Domen and Miha both worked with us designing a unique trip. We visited both the usual tourist sights and some that were specific to our interests. They gave us gps tracks to quiet, solitary day hikes with amazing views. We do not hesitate to recommend Slotrips for a fabulous vacation.
Jul 8 - Jul 20, 2018
Great trip organised and coordinated by Miha Gantar everything was well thought out and coordinated. The standard of service and accommodation was excellent. The country is open welcoming and not yet over crowded and pretty much everyone spoke english so we had no trouble getting around and being understood. Our guide Aliaz for our 5 day hike was fantastic and took all the worry out of navigating some challenging terrain. By far the best organised trip we have done
