Slovenia self guided walking tour, Slovenia - Jun 12 - Jun 23, 2019

Traveler: Susan G. - Local specialist: Katja Rogelj

Overall this was a great concept and great trip. Gorgeous scenery, perfect accommodation, attention to detailing and availability by kim Kim and slotrips was perfect. We would recommend this trip. As we were on t he “non-guided” trip some of the trails are not marked, so stay on the blue line on phone given you. We would also advice asking locals before you get on trail as they know where the trails are and alternates. Especially after severe weather, as we experienced. 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! :)
Katja Rogelj
