This is going to be the most interesting adventure trip I have organized so far.
After so many of you have asked me why I don't organize a hiking trip into Slovenian mountains, my home country, since I had successfully organized so many different activities and events for the InterNations in the past 15 months. So now I have decided to do just that. Of course one of the major reasons is that outdoor activities are my passion, especially when done in beautiful locations. Slovenia is known for its natural beauty and is a great OUTDOOR destination. As a child I often joined my mother (who was a mountain guide) on weekend hikes, deep into the Alps.
I enjoy connecting and bringing people together while organizing and guiding different activities. Being in nature and sharing my knowledge about my country is a special joy for me.

WHAT?
Let’s explore the great outdoors together!

Active holidays – hiking, rafting, cycling with a taste of culture, history and local culinary surprise.

Nature is known as the best medicine for everything. So, let’s go outside, feel the wind, smell the forest, listen to the streaming water, the birds and the leaves. Get in touch with nature, ourselves and the people around us. This is not just a hiking/sightseeing trip, but a green getaway where we all can mingle and bond while exploring beautiful locations.

Please note that activities such as hiking/rafting/cycling carry a risk of injury. By signing up for these activities, you confirm that you are in good health and accept this risk.

WHERE?
JULIAN ALPS - Our outdoor playground is Soca Valley.
Accommodation: small guest-house at the foot of the mountains and forest
Food at the guest-house is all organic and homemade, prepared by the family mother. They can cook vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.

Slovenian food is difficult to put into a category because it is influenced so much by its neighbors; Italy, Austria, Hungary and the Balkans – This makes for some interesting dishes.

PRICE:
Protected content person (flight not included)
Deposit (non-refundable): € 200.- must be paid by 25 JUNE Protected content
This is not a trip we can book at the last minute. I need to confirm the accommodation by 25 of JUNE. We need to be at least with 4 people from Brussels community. The booking can only be confirmed after I have received euro 200.- deposit. The deposit is non-refundable unless you find another person who will join us as your replacement. If the trip is canceled because we have not reached enough participants or due to a natural calamity/unforeseen circumstances you will get the full refund.

Feel free to invite your friends, just make sure they sign up on InterNations first.
