Slotrips trip designer

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

“We could not believe the effort Miha went to make our trip to Slovenia so amazing. He responded quickly to emails and put together an itinerary that showed he understood exactly what we wanted out of our trip including amazing food, comfortable accommodation and hiking in the Slovenian Alps. We could not have done the hiking trip without Miha's careful instructions... our guide's knowledge of this beautiful country and the best place to stop for fresh cherries was incredible. Slotrips is truly a company that understands the travelling preferences of the future - autonomy and adventure with the right amount of guidance so you don't get trapped by tourist gimmicks.”

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 5-6 hours per day within a distance of 13-15 km (8-9 miles). On the most challenging day, you’ll gain 900 m (2900 ft) of elevation. Most of the time the trails are easy and well crafted, however there are also some narrow and steep downhill sections. Sometimes they are rocky and on a rainy day can be slippery. Hiking experience and a reasonable fitness level are necessary to fully enjoy this trip. If the hike turns out to be more difficult than you expected, you always have an escape option and can get a transfer to the next accommodation. 

How difficult is the biking?

The biking is easy but still exciting for all who have never biked off asphalt roads. Thus it’s good to feel confident about riding a bike on gravel roads. This means that you’re in control when pedaling in a sitting and standing position, as well as changing gears, safely using the brakes while keeping control and maneuvering the bike while other people are around too. There is a section on a regional asphalt road as well.

You can expect sometimes to encounter a thicker layer of gravel, pothole, as well as rocks and roots, which can affect your steering and balance. In case you feel uneasy on some sections, you can always get off the bike and push for a few metres.

If you’re quickly short of breath, upgrade to an e-bike. 

What are the trails like?

The hiking trails are mostly well crafted and fairly easy to walk on, yet you can expect to walk along some steep sections with occasional slippery roots and rocks. The terrain is uneven, sometimes rocky and narrow, covered with gravel, grass and forest soil. Mostly the trails are in the shade of the forest, but be prepared for sun exposure too.

The biking trails are mainly nice gravel and dirt roads, but you’ll also ride asphalt backroads. The inclines are gently distributed on longer stretches of the trail, but expect some shorter and steeper sections with softer gravel 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.

What kind of accommodation do we stay in?

You’ll stay in hand-picked nice and clean 3 and 4* accommodation, in double or single rooms (surcharge) with en-suite bathroom. When staying in the mountain hut, you can have your private room for 2-4 people, but you will share the washroom with a few other hikers.

Why us?

With us you will save hours, nights, and days planning your trip. You will discover amazing locations, enjoy the best family activities in Slovenia and have carefree holidays. Because we care! Read about us & check our reviews.
