What people are saying about Slovene Littoral

Highly recommended. Lakes Bled and Bohinj are both spectacular and well worth a visit. We were lucky enough to have great weather for our trip but it would have been lovely even in the rain. Our guide, Primoz, was fantastic - incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. He personalized the tour to our interests and made sure that we had a great time.

Primoz was an excellent guide. You could see his knowledge and passion about Slovenia. He took us to the waterfall even if it wasnt on the plan for the day, just because i asked him to!! I really appreciate that!

We had a very good time with our guide who is exceptionally knowledgeable about the area. Can wholeheartedly recommend this tour if you want to enjoy a lot of different locations within the National Park.

A FANTASTIC trip where you get to see a large part of Triglav National park in one day. The guide was also wildly good and it was definitely worth all the money!

We had a great experience canyoning here for the first time. The guide was super helpful and the route was beautiful. We had a lot of fun!
