We had two local guides, Mojca and Andre. Quite diffferent personalities, who unwittingly complemented each other really well.
As ever, its the people who make the trip. Despite my initial qualms about their truly frightening fitness -including Andre's tendency to take a pre-walk early morning run- both were highly competent, keen to make sure we survived with smiles intact, and great ambassadors for Slovenia. I'll miss 'em.
Carrying my rucksack (around 12kg) took me a couple of days to get used to. However, I could have packed fewer quick-dry clothes, and given them a wash. I took a Camelback water bladder, which proved really useful. Do take a rucksack cover & lighweight waterproofs. We only 2 days of rain in an otherwise glorious week, but its no fun if your spare clothes are soggy at the end of the day.
Hotel in Bled was fine, 3*, 2 to an en suite room. Mountain huts were usually clean, large and warm. However, they are BASIC, so get your expectations right at the outset. Not all had available electrical points, so take enough batteries. You'll need to buy bottled water at some, which is cheap enough. All had beer. Washing facilities at a couple were just a communal cold tap/sink. Wet wipes might be worth packing. All had shared dorm rooms, which varied from 4 beds to 20, so take earplugs if snoring tolerance is low and a small torch / headlight for finding your way to the loo in the early hours. The 3 women in our group of 15 always managed to find a separate room. Food was fine but basic throughout, although veggies may get bored of omelettes and vegetable soup. It's worth buying chocolate, nuts etc in Bled before setting off.
For your last day, consider going water rafting, which was good fun and only 20 euros. A few of us booked it at a little shop in Bled near the hotel the day before we left. They got us back for 1:30 pm, in good time for leaving.
We were all British, so maybe took a few days to 'warm up' with each other and our guides? However, all got on, and for me, this improved as the week went on.
