    The accommodation and food was excellent, the countryside stunningly beautiful, the fellow walkers great company, but I personally found the walks towards the end of the week too challenging for me.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?I think the views from the mountain huts were very inspirational, and also the visits to amazingly romantic Lake Bled.What did you think of your group leader?The group leader was very competent and experienced. He  obviously really knew the walks like the back of his hand.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?A lot of the walking was more challenging than I expected, so make sure you've got good fitness, or do regular uphill walking.Is there anything else you would like to add?I thought the trip advisor was misleading. It promised us 500m average ascent, with a maximum of 700m.By the third walk we were up to 900m and the next two walks were tougher, so I had to opt out of them. I could manage the 700m we been promised, but 200m higher was too much. Also it told us that we would be walking on well-marked paths with a few loose stones. In actual fact there was a lot of clambering up and down boulders and tree roots.I think if I'd known these things, I wouldn't have chosen this holiday.

    This trip was absolutely fantastic, it gives a chance to mix a walking holiday with seeing such a beautiful and relatively undiscovered part of Europe.  Each day is packed with beautiful views, walking can be challenging at times but you are rewarded again and again with the scenery on offer, even the airport had pretty mountains views!  For me it was a perfect combination of a group organised walking trip but with some free time mixed in.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Slovenia itself - it really is the most beautiful country!  I have been to many stunning countries across the world but Slovenia really surprized me, such beautiful scenery, on my doorstep really, that i knew very little about.  My favourite day was when we summited Golica and you walk with one foot in Austria and one foot in Slovenia, such pretty scenery, a little tough at times but i could have sat taking in the views at the top for ever and ever.  Saying that though every day was fantastic, we had a great group of people and lots of fun.  Even the free day which i choose to spend sunbathing and swimming in Lake Bled, as it was over 30 degrees, which was pretty special too.  The trip had everything, great walking, stunning views, some free time and a fantastic bunch of people.What did you think of your group leader?We had 2 leaders, David and Micah and they were such great guys.  Very knowledgeable, with a real love and pride for their country and wicked sense of humour too.  They were very good judges of character and took the time to make sure everyone was looked after and really helped to make the trip as good as it was. Do you have any advice for potential travellers?The food portions everywhere are huge - one of our group ordered deep fried cheese for a starter on a night out - and it came with a side serving of chips - for a starter!!  Lovely soups and cakes too - good job it was a walking holiday!Is there anything else you would like to add?Just that i can't wait to go back to Slovenia - normally i'm already planning my next adventure somewhere new on the flight home but i would love to go back to this country.  I wish i'd added a stay in Ljubljana onto the beginning or end of the trip as the people who had or went on the free day loved it, but that just gives me the perfect excuse i need to go back!

    I had a complete blast on this trip, everything about it was fantastic! oh except Slovenia has the largest wasp population in the world! I had been expecting a wet soggy week but the weather was fanstastic, the group was one of the best I've travelled with, the pension was lovely, the guides top notch. I have travelled to over 65 countries and never go anywhere twice - I would go to Slovenia again in a heart beat and that for me says it all.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?There were so many - the scenery, the food, the wine, the beer, the group, the guides. Everyday I looked forward to getting up and came back laughing!What did you think of your group leader?We had two guides - both spoke perfect English, had a huge knowledge of the area and made me feel totally safe. They fitted right in and became friends to all of us.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Do it! I loved this trip and I've been on loads of this type of thing. I can imagine it's a bit miserable if the weather isn't good but then it is mountain terrain and it goes with the territory.This is a really easy trip to do alone. I was supposed to go with a friend but she was taken ill and couldn't come. Slovenia is such an easy place to be in and well worth what little effort it takes to be there.

    Slovenia is a wonderful place, and I had a great time despite the terrible weather. A damp but wornderful experience.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Sadly the wonderful views that grace the pictures were not available through the mist, but the moody, rolling fog made up for some of it. I think the summit of Vogel was my favourite place, and I look forward to returning to see the views in all their glory.What did you think of your group leader?Mojca and Lisa were enthusiastic and great fun to walk with. I have not laughed as much in ages and I, for one, felt part of something that was more than just a holiday.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Go! Slovenia is one of the countries I want to go back to most keenly. It really was a nice place to be, and all of this is despite the shocking weather. The accommodation was really friendly and nice, and I would recommend this trip to anyone.

    Beautiful scenery, multicoloured meadows, high ridges, wonderful lakes - what more can you want?  The hotel was comfortable and characterful, the guides (Alecs and Mojca) really knowledgeable and professional, as well as being great fun.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Walking along the Golice ridge with one foot in Slovenia and one in Austria with fantastic views on both sides.What did you think of your group leader?Both were great, they love their country and it shows.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Be aware that it rains quite a bit but it won't spoil the trip.  We had 2 days' thunderstorms out of 6- the rest were perfect.  Take an umbrella with a plastic or wooden tip (safer during thunderstorms) and you won't even notice it.Is there anything else you would like to add?Nothing, just go for it!!

    Slovenia is an undiscovered wonder! It's like Switzerland ... without the Swiss ;)What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?As much as I loved the hiking, our days off in Bled were amazing. Swimming in the lake with the spectacular scenery, the warm sun glistening off the water, the creaking boats, the impressive church on the island - all too beautiful.What did you think of your group leader?Andre and Clement were brilliant guides - good sense of humour, patience of Mother Theresa and the energy of a tireless machine.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Live it - dont hold back. and pack in sensible shoes... ;)Is there anything else you would like to add?We'll be back - Annapurna is our next big trip with Exodus. I hope it goes as well as this one. Thanks again for the excellent holiday.
