walking at lake Bled Slovenia

Frequently asked questions about walking trips


What's included in our trips?

All self-guided (independent) tours cover hotel accommodation, luggage transfer, comprehensive electronic documentation and a welcome briefing by our representative upon your arrival in Slovenia. Trips within Slovenian territory also include local tourist and promotional taxes. Some tours may include extras such as entrance fees to cultural sites mentioned in the itinerary.

What's not included?

Travel to Slovenia, local transfers to your tour's starting point, lunches, dinners and entrance fees are not included.

Are meals included?

Lunches and dinners are not included in the package, but your trip documentation will provide extensive information and suggestions about dining options. Most hotels, guesthouses, and mountain huts offer the option to order a packed lunch. You can expect Central European cuisine with local specialties. If you have specific dietary requirements, please notify us in advance. Beverages are not included with meals.

How will I navigate the route?

Navigating the route is straightforward. After paying final rate, you'll receive an electronic road-book containing trip descriptions in both text and picture format (GUIBO system). At a small surcharge a printed version of it with paper maps can ob ordered and is delivered to your first hotel. GPS tracks are also available in gpx and kml data formats. If you're not familiar with GPS orienteering, we recommend practicing before your trip.

Can I have a single room on all tours?

Yes, single rooms are available on all tours, but there is a small supplement. There's no minimum number of participants required, and we welcome solo travelers.

What about medical insurance?

You should arrange medical insurance in your home country before your departure. Health services in Slovenia are well-organized, but as a foreign citizen, you are responsible for covering the costs of medical services.

Are support vehicles provided, and how is luggage transported?

Self-guided and group tours do not include support vehicles. However, we provide emergency telephone numbers for our office. As tours are designed for self-guided exploration, your luggage is transported using pre-arranged transportation with your hotel. You simply leave your baggage at the hotel reception by 9 AM, and it will be delivered to the next hotel by 5 PM on the same day.

What else should I bring?

Your travel documentation includes a suggested packing list, but the final decision on what to bring is up to you. Since this is a walking holiday, it's recommended to travel with as few bags as possible. Feel free to ask our staff for assistance in coordinating your entire trip. A good thing to bring with you is a battery charger / power bank.

How do I get to the tour's starting point?

Slovenia is easily accessible by air, train, or international buses. Participants from outside Europe may need to connect through one of the major Central European cities. We're happy to provide information on connecting flights or direct railway connections to Slovenia. For more details, please visit our website.
