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 in front of me. 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”.

Meet the Slotrips team

“Our expectations were exceeded, for sure. All accommodation, logistics etc were perfect. The range of scenery was really overwhelming and I really hope to return someday! Triglav National Park seems like a magical place that demands more time to explore. Thanks so much to you and your team for all the organization etc, it was a great trip and we would not hesitate to recommend it to others”

Questions & answers

How do your self-guided tours work?

You will be surprised! We have done (and are still doing) a ton of work to make sure your independent active holidays in Slovenia (and across the borders) are flawless, fun, and hassle-free. With the implementation of modern technology and our extensive local knowledge, we believe we are on the right way of delivering exceptional hiking & biking experiences that you are able to enjoy at your own pace. Read more about our “self-guided added value”.

How difficult is the walking?

Expect to walk about 4-5 hours per day within 8-13 km (5-8 miles) of distance and up to 600 m (2000 ft) elevation gain. Please do make prior walks of similar distances and elevation gains on rocky terrain, to be in a reasonable shape to fully enjoy the trip rather than to suffer it through. If you find the walk to hard, you always have an escape option by taking a taxi or bus to your next accommodation.

What are the trails like?

The trails are uneven, sometimes rocky and narrow, with gravel, grass, roots and forest soil. You can expect to walk some short, steep, sometimes slippery uphill and downhill sections along mostly forest shaded trails. However, be prepared for sun exposure too.

What is the mountain hut like?

The mountain hut is a cosy family-run place with 3 rooms in total. You will have your own room (2 bunk beds) and share the bathrooms with others. Expect some great and filling mountain food as well.

What is the hay barn like?

Check the photos. The hay barn is located on an organic farm near the Soca river, where great local breakfast is served and bathrooms are shared.  You will get a cotton bed liner over the hay ‘mattress’, a comfortable pillow and blanket.

Let us know if you want an alternative accommodation. 

What is the campsite like?

The campsite is one of the loveliest on the best location by the Soca river with different overnight options, depending on the availability. Small wooden houses for 2 people or a bigger family room is at disposal, with a private room, proper mattresses, and bedding, yet shared bathrooms. Breakfast is provided. Camp’s highlights are the stunning green meadows and nearby river pools.

Children’s ages

This trip is appropriate for kids from 6 years on, with plenty of play and downtime, as well as engage with the river. The kids need to be good and keen walkers. Please advise us if someone can’s swim. The trip can be modified into a multi-active and exciting adventure for fit teenagers too. 

What is the weather usually like?

In summer (from June to early September) the weather is usually hot, with temperatures around 25-30 deg C (75-90 deg F). In peak season (August) you can expect a heatwave with temperatures likely exceeding 35 deg C (95 deg F) as well as a significant temperature drop in the mountains on a cloudy, windy or rainy day.

Can I add more adventures?

Yes, you can choose from rock climbing, canyoning, horse-back riding, kayaking, paragliding, via-ferrata climb and more. Let us know to arrange the adventure.
