This was my first Exodus trip and I loved it! The guides were hilarious, friendly and knowledgeable. The accommodation had amazing views, good food and cheap booze. The walks were all different and had breathtaking views. I never realised how beautiful Slovenia is. I would fully recommend this trip if you like walking, good food and good views.
Swimming in the lakes.
Relaxing and enjoyable walking in Slovenia although would have preferred only one day of walking on the flat around a lake rather than two. Accommodation good but surprised all lunches taken in restaurants and not as a packed lunch.
Meeting my fellow walkers - all lovely people
very friendly and pleasant
Slovenia is a picturesque country, whose people are warm and friendly.
The mountains are not as severe as those of the Western Alps with the lower levels covered with trees so there are less traditional Alpine meadows than I expected. In my opinion this added to the scenery but it did mean having to walk up through woodland trails before getting your reward of the stunning views.
Lake Bled must be a highlight of anyones trip to Slovenia but Lake Bohinj is also memorable
The Pension we stopped at in Radlovijca has views of the Julian Alps including mount Triglav Slovenia's highest peak. It is within 5 minutes walk of the old part of the town with many pretty buildings and a number of restaurants.
One of my fellow travellers had cycled from the UK to Slovenia to join his part of his family for this trip. He was then intending to cycle into Eastern Europe and Asia before hopefully reaching Australia in 18 months time.
Being invited into a small village church by a local neither of us understanding a word of what the other was saying but me getting the impression he was proud to show me round
Bugy or leader and Miha were both very good, they loved the outdoors. Both had climbed Triglav which made them a true Slovenian.
In terms of the walking they were always looking out and ready to help anyone having difficulty with the walking. They would also suggest and take some of the trip on easier walks when we were in the Mountains.
Both seemed to be known by loads of people which helped in bars and restaurants.
There is a train track close to the accommodation and if your room is in that part of the Pension then this could disturb your sleep but you will soon get used to it and don't let this put you off booking.
As for the walks this trip is graded 3 moderate, two of the days walk round stunning lakes but apart from one optional climb the walking of these days is flat and I would grade as 1 or possibly 2 . Of the other 3 days walking one day is through a gorge to some waterfalls with short sections of rocky narrow paths, whilst the remaining two are in the mountains and require a reasonable level of fitness for the up hill paths nothing worse than a day in the Lakeland fells.
If you get chance for a barbecue at Lake Bohinj go for it - stacks of food and very cheap
Slovenia is a cheap country compared with Western Europe especially for drink, however the food on the last day in the mountain hut is not.
Ljubliana is worth a visit on the spare day especially the old town and castle.
Loved Slovenia it is definitely worth a visit and somewhere I would return to
Slovenia has a mixed alpine climate with summer temperatures in the range of 18 to 25°C. In the mountains cool mornings are normally followed by warm pleasant days, with temperatures in the Alps being ideal for walking. During summer months afternoon showers of rain cool down the humidity, giving way to clear skies and pleasant temperatures.

Slovenia has the Euro and is pretty reasonable, especially compared to some close neighbours! You should allow about 10EUR per lunch and 20EUR per 3 course dinner. It's about 2EUR for a coffee, 4EUR for a beer and 2EUR euro for a glass of wine.
Atms are available all around the country, but it's advisable to maybe just take some Euro cash and use this.

Yes, it's not a problem to book flights yourself to Slovenia, as there are a few low cost carriers who fly the route. However, as you transfer out of town to a different part of the country, please get in touch with Exodus first so we can best advise on where and how to meet the group. The start point is possible to get to by public transport or by taxi, so just let us know if you need some advise about this!

Yes, this trip is centre based so if you would prefer to take off any of the days, you're free to do your own thing. Obviously we hope you'll take advantage of all that is on offer, but it's still a holiday, not a forced march!
