Trails zigzag and wind through the mountains and wild valleys in the western part of the country.

Untouched nature is your constant companion as you head from summit to sea, flanked by spectacular landscapes.

We’ll be in Kranjska Gora, a mountain town in the Upper Carniola region, resting in the heart of the Julian Alps. It is located in the extreme northwest, along the border with Italy and Austria.

Our end destination is the Mediterranean town of Piran, that peers out at the waters of the Adriatic Sea.

The route along the way carves through the stunning Soča Valley, scattered with flourishing vineyards below the iconic karst mountain peaks.

Green alpine meadows, emerald rivers and enormous peaks make up the collection of landmarks along the way.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
