    Hiking in Beautiful Slovenia-don't miss it.

    Slovenia is friendly place with unspoilt scenery in the lakes and mountains of the Julian Alps. The group of 15 members of wide age range from UK,USA and Canada gelled really quickly Five days of varied walks including low level at lake Bled and two different mountain ascents to 1800m and 2000m. All at a steady pace and achieved by all the group members. We had hearty soups and delicious strudels at rustic mountain refuges. The base in Radovljica was central family run hotel conveniently located in the old town.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Reaching the top of the hill on the Poljuka Plateau with views of Triglav mountain and into Austria.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Katija and Alaj were a great team both with good sense of humour.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Do some hiking in your local hills before you do the trip.

    Amazing!!!

    This was my first exodus adventure and it most certainly won’t be the last. This week had everything. Slovenia is an untold beauty which must be discovered. The socha river is a magnificent turquoise and being able to do multiple activities on it is amazing. Slovenian people are very friendly, warm and welcoming. Kobarid is much smaller than expected but is a lovely quaint little village with plenty of restaurants to try. The team were amazing and helpfully and the group was a wonderful mix, with people from all walks of life. I would love to go on another trip with them all.

    Beautiful country

    Slovenia is beautiful - clean, green, unspoilt, with beautiful lakes, waterfalls and mountains. The hotel is great with excellent evening meals and lovely views.Rooms are spacious with a really good shower and comfortable bed. The staff are very friendly. Radovljica is an excellent base for the week - the old town is pretty with a few decent restaurants, an ice cream shop (!) and regular buses to Bled, Ljubljana etc. Buses are cheap.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Climbing to the viewpoint above Lake Bled and taking in that stunning view. Admiring the thundering waterfalls and flower-filled meadows

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Bugy and Aleš were expert mountain guides and a good laugh.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    A short city break in Ljubljana before the week’s walking starts is highly recommended - say from the Thursday. You’ll be too tired afterwards! Take poles! If you can fit in two pairs, both lightweight shoes and boots with ankle support are useful. Boots are essential. The easy (lake) walks really are easy and the harder (mountain) walks really are hard, harder than other Level 3 holidays I have been on. Three of the walks aren’t great if you’re not good with heights.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    It was quite expensive compared to other holidays as no picnics were provided and only 3 dinners. On all other Exodus holidays, We have had picnics provided. Mountain huts serve soup, or soup, or soup and you’ll pay around €10 for, er, soup - and a drink. I guess the idea is to support the guys running the mountain huts, which is fine, but beware the additional budget needed. I really wish the hardest walk wasn’t planned for the last day on Exodus trips. ! By the last day people are a little tired and may be carrying a few niggling aches and pains. An easier day to wind down would be better.

    Varied landscape, interesting cycling, great food.

    This trip shows the lesser known parts of Croatia - Zagreb, the Istrian and plenty of pretty small towns and villages. Dipping in to Slovenia is a great addition too, broadening the experience and contrasting mountains with the sea. Some challenging sections of cycling make it all the better, adding a sense of achievement to the whole experience.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Seeing everyone make the climb up one of the longer sections in Slovenia, celebrating with a silly picture by a statue of a local storybook figure. Everyone achieved more than they thought they were capable of when looking at the bare statistics and were rightly proud of themselves.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Allen was great, personable and efficient and keen to engage with the group.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Ensure you do dust off your cycling legs before you go. The range of gears on the bikes means you can tackle everything, just pick a gear you're comfortable with and take it at your own pace. Water, breaks and words of encouragement are always on hand!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    There is always much more to these trips than it would appear. The cultural element, e.g the visit of Fuzine, the cuisine, the changing landscapes make it a great trip even for those who have been to Croatia before. Zagreb is well worth a visit too.

    Another great cycling trip

    The trip loved up to expectations rated up to a 4. Plenty of hills, some of which were suitably challenging. Weather was great and cycling conditions very good. Guide, Alan Skulic was very informative and took good care of everyone's needs. Great group of cyclists so the dynamic worked very well.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    I enjoyed Krk Island where the cycling was surprisingly good with some very pretty towns and beaches.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Very good, friendly, informative and remained calm, although his clear instructions eliminated most of the scope for things to go wrong.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    No snacks or energy drinks are provided during the ride so for those who use Zero tablets, energy bars ,fruit gels and similar, take them with you because the local shops don't provide these sort of items. Don't forget the sunscreen.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Thanks for another great cycling holiday; looking forward to the next one now.
