    5.0 - Excellent

    A brilliant week of varied activities, great food and drink, fantastic people and a thoroughly enjoyable and refreshing experience.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Funnily enough my personal favourite was the last day - sledging (down a ski slope)  - although made more exciting by 5 of us joining hands and going down backwards! Probably the most simple activity but due to the relationship of the group and the fact that everyone was willing to try anything fun and new it was such a good laugh and really rounded the holiday off in a way we couldn't imagine beforehand. Dog sledding was also a must not miss activity (unless it's too hot for the dogs, possibly in late Feb - March).What did you think of your group leader?Very good. Altough it was clear she was inexperienced at leading a group on this particular trip, she was very pleasant and made us all feel very welcome. Her only failing was not knowig all the locations and activities 100%, but this quickly proved not to be a huge problem. I particularly enjoyed discussing the history of Slovakia and her fascinating youth with her - a very interesting and warm person.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Yes, go on this trip! Excellent value (I spent a lot less than I budgeted for). I took Eu 350 with me and only spend 200. Plus the actual cost os pretty low  for a trip of this kind. Food and drink is the only expense and it is very good value and a complete pleasure at that.Is there anything else you would like to add?If you have never skied and are interested or simply like the idea of a winter snow break, this is for you. My only reservation would be for seasoned downhill skiers or snowboarders, this may not be as exciting as you are used to - saying that I had been on 4 previous dedicated skiing holidays and totally loved it.

    This was a great week's holiday, in the company of a group of like-minded and interesting people. The whole experience was memorable, and anyone looking for an alternative holiday playing in the snow, exerting some energy, and learning new skills, should book this trip. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The silence all around on the first day show-shoeing was unique. Sitting in a thermal pool, relaxing in the bubbles, whilst a blizzard of snow span around overhead!What did you think of your group leader?Very knowledgable and friendly. Always prepared to help the group in any way and joined in with everything.

    An excellent, action packed week in the snow. Excellent hotel and leaderWhat was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Swimming in a blizzard in the outdoor pool in ZakopaneWhat did you think of your group leader?Marta was an excellent leader, she thought of everythingDo you have any advice for potential travellers?Make sure your downhill skis are waxed before leaving the hire shop.Is there anything else you would like to add?Make sure you are fit for the snow-shoeing day - it's quite a long trudge. I'd highly recommend this week for the variety of activities.

    This is a very speciall activity week because it involves almost all winter sports just in one week. Some trips are for skiing only which is boring.I loved and enjoyed every minute of it. It was AWESOME.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?To see people of all ages in my group.Everybody prepared to do things together,pulling towards the same direction.When one falls, others wait and helped. What did you think of your group leader?She was amazing, but i think the group was a bit large i think we should ve had two leaders.There was fast moving and slow moving members of the group which was making it difficult for everybody.It was unfair for fast movers to keep waiting all the time, but the group leader kept trying to satisfy everybody.At some stage there was an injured person,who needed attention and as the group leader was alone she could not leave the group yet she could not rush to hospital. Luckily the injury was minor which you cannot say its minor really because the Xray was the only solution. Anyway the problem was solved at the end of the day. Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Go for it its an amazing experience. Its affordable and very exciting, i might take my friends next time.Is there anything else you would like to add?I like Exodus and i would request to do some payments maybe monthly and then choose the trip when i ve accumulated enough money for the trip.Is it possible?

    A great mix of activities in the snow which allows first timers to sample and see what is worth pursuing.A very comfortable, well located hotel , and a very conscientious and hard working guide. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Most times  in the minibus ,seeing the mix of trees covered in frost and snow, in the various lanscapes we passed throughWhat did you think of your group leader?Very knowledgeable on environment / National Park issues, Slovakian history, well organised , kind and  very thoughtful . (Also  an expert on making a very rare Slovakian folk instrument, which he  played for us ) Do you have any advice for potential travellers?All activities  are at  beginners  level, and there is no problem in opting out  at any point.The local tram service is  warm , clean and very good valueIs there anything else you would like to add?Great informal atmosphere in hotel, with helpful staff who all speak English.Unlikely to be a better mix of activities to sample the delights of  a winter  snow holiday, with thermal pool bathing, folk museum and sleigh rides too
