Our story

Our story started as a hobby back in 2007, when Miha (the founder) came up with an idea to design Slotrips.si – an “interactive on-line guide for active holidays in Slovenia”, which was the beginning of the Slotrips company. Initially, no products or services were offered; just a wealth of information on a non-commercial website designed to help everyone who would like to discover Slovenia’s natural treasures on their own. Thus, travellers from around the world soon began asking for organized adventures in Slovenia. Since we travelled, hiked and biked extensively around Slovenia (and continue to do so), and had already discovered countless hidden corners, stunning natural sights, peaceful spots with jaw-dropping views and the best local places to stay and eat, we wanted to share our knowledge. Therefore we started taking visitors on guided hiking & biking trips, showed them our “backyard” and the culinary treasures of our grandmothers; thus turning our hobby into our job. And we have been loving it ever since!

It was somehow a natural and unplanned growth which brought us to where we are today – being one of the leading active travel agencies in Slovenia.

Our Philosophy

We “Walk a mile in your shoes”. We discuss your wishes, get an insight into what is important for you and design the best possible personalised travel experience in Slovenia. One that you will never forget. It’s not the smart suit that makes a professional, but the skill, knowledge, attention to detail and the efficient execution of our services. We put a lot of thought into creating carefree travel experiences, which are as unique as our travelers. Moreover, we want to see your happy faces, feel your warm handshakes, strong embraces and even experience the odd tear of joy.

We cherish your word of mouth, firm partnerships with renowned international operators of the highest standard of service, our local partners (hotels, farm stays, restaurants, winemakers, taxi drivers, local characters…), our team, families and friends and everyone who you will meet along the way. We appreciate their work and close relationships which reflect in the best possible experience for our travelers, and who help us make our lives and business exceptional. Thank you!

Our Mission

We aim to ensure excellent guided and self-guided active travel in Slovenia for all people who seek in-depth experiences with the highest standard of service and attention to detail. Our goal is to make a positive impact in communities and environments where we live and work.

I was born in Slovenia's lovely capital city of Ljubljana but had set the avid hiker and biker in me aside for a while to study civil engineering in Germany. It was there where I met my wife - the cute Spanish girl on the next picture. Together we traveled the world and finally settled in my homeland, Slovenia in 2007. Since then I have been (re)discovering the hiking trails, biking backroads, hidden natural treasures and best dining spots all over the country. I am in love with Slovenia's landscape diversity and cultural variety and will proudly show you my "backyard".

I am a food and nature lover, originally from the Canary Islands (Spain). A Slovenian stole my heart 15 years ago and I swapped the beautiful beaches for the rugged Slovenian mountains. Ever since, I have been actively exploring the amazing natural spots of this country, absorbing the local culture and Slovenia's delicious cuisine. With a degree in tourism and more than 13 years of experience organizing tours, I will make sure you get a delicious and unforgettable adventure, that will make you love sLOVEnia as much as I do.

As a kid, I was introduced to the beauty of mountaineering through mountain summer camps with my local alpine club, where I established my love and respect for nature. I have since become an active member of the club, an alpinist, a recreational mountain biker, a ski mountaineering enthusiast and a certified hiking guide. This has enabled me to share my fondness for the mountains with others. These days, I spend an equal amount of time exploring not only rugged mountains but also local history & culture, and good food. Ultimately, I have blended my passion, knowledge and skills into a profession which I love and enjoy.

A passionate mountain biker and ski mountaineer powered by the force of nature, with a ready smile and easy laugh, I am wildly enthusiastic about my life and work. Running on an adventurous heartbeat I could find the kick-off to the great outdoors only through studying physical education. Thus I soon turned from a junior mountaineer and hiker to a skiing teacher and canyoning instructor and guide in Slovenia, New Zealand, Corsica (France) and Spain. Many moves around the Slovenian Alps later, you will even find me in the office sharing my passion with you, getting to know you and loving every minute of it!

A passion born in mountain summer camps nurtured through adolescence and enhanced by different courses brought me to the point of making my hobby a profession. With like-minded friends, I had spent many fun days and starry nights tramping the mountains. Therefore I love spending every day in nature, where I eagerly share my knowledge about Slovenia. So if you wish to experience a fun hike, taste some amazing food, perhaps just spend a few days outdoors or enjoy a debate over a beer, you can count on me! When I'm not in the mountains, you will find me working on various non-profit projects, or maybe sleeping...

I am the youngest member of the team but like a typical Slovenian child, I wore my kids hiking boots out in youth mountain camps, where I later became a guide and mentor. Because I'd rather spend summers in the mountains than studying, I have years of experience and many Slovenian stories and legends under my belt. Thus I gladly share them with you in English or Spanish. As I studied in Spain, I have been able to guide the Spanish-speaking trips ever since. Well immersed in Spanish culture, I've got many a joyous evening happening (like the village fete or 'veselica') or a travel meetup well covered.

I hold a master's degree in organizational science which I put into practice as a hiking guide and on my active journeys exploring the world. Thanks to my legendary road trip with a Renault 4 car through India and Iran, extensive travels throughout Latin America and sailing across the Atlantic back to Europe, as well as completing my education in Lisbon and Canary Islands, I'm fluent in Spanish, English and multiple Slavic languages. In love with the Slovenian mountains and Croatia's coastline, I mostly run active tours in the region of the former Yugoslavia. I can't imagine a better way to explore the world.

I probably shared a similar energetic flow with the mountains as many other Slovene kids do. I had to get up early every weekend and walk the mountains with my parents all day long until my resistance became too strong and I put mountain hikes to bed for a while. After a while, the lure of the mountains was too strong and I fell in love all over again. It was then I became a licensed hiking guide, who loves rediscovering mountains over and over again with you. Nowadays I live surrounded by the mountains near Bled, where I run a small family B&B and take every chance I get to get up there on foot or by mountain bike.

On my travels across all continents, I realised the wealth that Slovenia has to offer to nature lovers and mountain bikers and for that reason have dedicated myself to guiding groups around Slovenia for the past 10 years. Since I live in Bled, my playground is the Alpine part of Slovenia, where I have been mountain biking for the past 20 years. Yet I also feel at home in the hills around Slovenia's capital Ljubljana. I am a licensed mountain bike guide who speaks Slovene, English and German, thus can confidently take groups on multi-day tours between the Alps and the Adriatic.

Addicted to Slovenia

Slovenia is our playground, where our curious minds and restless feet for hiking, walking and biking adventures can access hidden gems and experience the true authenticity of local nature & culture. We are passionate, hardworking, contagiously enthusiastic and happy locals, crafting your unforgettable Slovenian experience.

“We just finished the trip yesterday and I have to tell you we had a great time! We were very impressed with the hikes, the variety of activities, the lunches at the mountain huts, the wine tasting and the entire itinerary in general. It's amazing how many highlights of Slovenia we were able to see. Primoz and Aljaz were two of the best guides we have ever had on a hiking trip. They greeted every activity with enthusiasm and big smiles. We felt like we were traveling with friends instead of with a tour group. Paul and I have done about 20 small group walking/hiking trips and this was one of our favorites.”
