Slotrips

It all started as a hobby. Back in 2007 when Miha came up with an idea to design an "interactive on-line guide for active holidays in Slovenia". This is how Slotrips project was born: a non-commercial website for everyone who would like to discover Slovenia's natural treasures on their own. We didn't even offer any products or services, but soon travellers from around the world asked us to organize their adventures in Slovenia, take them on guided hiking & biking tours, show them our "backyard" and our grandmas' culinary treasures. Perfect! We have turned our hobby into our job. And we love it!

It was somehow a natural & unplanned growth that has brought us to where we are today: one of the leading active travel companies in Slovenia. We certainly are not one of the biggest hiking & biking operators in Slovenia. And we do not want to be one. We just want to be the best!

We have indeed travelled, hiked and biked extensively around Slovenia, discovered countless hidden corners, stunning natural sights, peaceful spots with jaw-dropping views and the best local places to stay & eat. Let us share this with you!

We are young and passionate, we respect nature and we love Slovenia. A happy guest is our first priority and all our tours are 100% adapted to your wishes, weather conditions and desired adrenaline level. We love improvising which makes every tour very special & unique. Let us know your wishes and we will design a trip to remember!

Looking forward to have you as our guest in sLOVEnia! :)

Triglav park, Slovenia - Jul 1 - Jul 9, 2018

Traveler: Tracey H. - Local specialist: Miha Gantar

This was, from beginning to end, a wonderful experience. Both Domen and Miha at Slotrips were amazingly helpful and went out of their way to make sure my journey went smoothly. I was traveling and hiking solo through Triglav Park, and they provided GPS, safety equipment, a cell phone to reach them, and explicit written instructions as well of maps of the area.

When I arrived I had a nasty sinus infection, and Domen was able to arrange transport to a doctor in a nearby town so I could be seen... read more

This was, from beginning to end, a wonderful experience. Both Domen and Miha at Slotrips were amazingly helpful and went out of their way to make sure my journey went smoothly. I was traveling and hiking solo through Triglav Park, and they provided GPS, safety equipment, a cell phone to reach them, and explicit written instructions as well of maps of the area.

When I arrived I had a nasty sinus infection, and Domen was able to arrange transport to a doctor in a nearby town so I could be seen and get antibiotics. The day I was to summit Triglav, the weather was questionable, and Miha called me while I was on the trail to check in on me and make sure my trek was safe and successful. I made requests for minor changes to my transfers, which they accommodated on the spot.

I had wonderful places to stay (clean, quiet, and safe for a solo female traveler) and got recommendations for local restaurants and wineries to visit along the way. This was my first travel experience with KimKim and the gentlemen at Slotrips. It will not be my last! Thank you again for going out of your way to give me a fantastic holiday!

Dear Tracy!

We are so happy you felt that we care for you! :) And most of all were are happy you've had a great trip in our lovely small country! Too bad about the weather on the summit. A reason to come back and climb it again in the sun! :)

Thanks again for traveling with us!
Big hug from Slovenia!

slovenia, Slovenia - Jun 10 - Jun 20, 2018

Traveler: Jacci Z. - Local specialist: Miha Gantar

I cannot say enough about Kimkim and Miha. The trip was perfectly planned, just the right amount of days and activities in one place. They made everything so easy. Except the driving, which by the end of the first week got easier. And of coarse is not Kimkims fault. Plenty of information and directions to every place we went. The Hotel and other accommodations were perfect! Thank you Kimkim for the great trip!

Miha Gantar, local specialist, responded to this review:

Dear Jacci!
Thank you so much for the great feedback! We are very pleased you enjoyed Slovenia and are happy with our services and Kimkim as well. Thank you again for visiting the home of your ancestors with us and keep using Kimkim for your future trips. :)
Warm wishes!

Traveler: Shree L. - Local specialist: Miha Gantar

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. We had two amazing guides, Domen and Anja. We were very impressed with the quality of the tour, the hotels, the farmhouses we visited, the wine tasting experiences, the local meals that we would never have found on our own, etc....

Miha before the start of the trip and our wonderful guides Domen and Anja during the trip had tremendous attention to detail, and we could feel that they were doing their utmost to make sure all our wishes were fulfilled. We could not go on some of the hikes originally planned due to too much snow and Domen suggested awesome alternatives that had beautiful vistas. 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!

Thanks again Miha, Domen and Anja for everything. You guys are the best!

And kimkim will certainly be on the top of my list to contact for all our future adventures in every country where they provide their services and have local operators.

Traveler: Gregory T. - Local specialist: Miha Gantar

We had a wonderful time. The logistics were superb including the fantastic hotels, the very convenient car pick up and drop off, and the activity suggestions.

For me the most memorable places were the castle near Postojna and the beauty of the Alps. But a close second to these include our row boat ride to the island on Lake Bled, the castle at Lake Bled, the beauty of Lake Bohinj, the food at your recommended restaurants was superb, the caves (we saw both), the market square and view of the... read more

Everywhere we went the people were extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you for helping us set this up.

Traveler: Owen B. - Local specialist: Miha Gantar

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.

Miha Gantar, local specialist, responded to this review:

The organisation and guidance was excellent. The accommodation was good. Our trip was well planned and with lots to see and do. The food walk in Ljubljana is a must do. The walks and scenery were outstanding. The route enabled us to see a lot of this beautiful country. There were some interesting and different things for us to do. In particular a guided tour of a WWI battlefield in the Sochi Valley and a visit with a beekeeper in Bled. Our tour organisers Domen and Miha provided excellent... read more

I highly recommend them and their firm Slotrips. I also found Kimkim to be a very good way find and to communicate with travel organisers.

Traveler: Jerold K. - Local specialist: Miha Gantar

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

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 with local business people. 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.

Dear Jerry!

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback! I am very glad you have enjoyed your trip in Slovenia, especially after all the hassle you've had with your flights. Thank you for visiting us and welcome back anytime! :)
