Loved Slovenia and would highly recommend for those who enjoy the outdoors and walking. The via ferrata route was great for a morning hike. Stunning views and not too hard which was good given the heat that day. Our guide Borut (replaced by Gregor at the last minute as I had misjudged our dates so very much appreciated it) was lovely and made our trip even better.

Brilliant day of adventure. Blaz is an excellent guide, we felt really safe the whole time. Plus he was full of knowledge about the local area. I would recommend him to anyone, especially if you have kids.

Hi, We had a great climb with Matevz on the Hanz route - we knew we were in good hands and he kept a good pace and made sure we were taken care of on the way up. The climb was quite steep and a little scary but it helped knowing we were secured by a rope so an exhilirating day overall. We loved it!

This was my first via ferrata and on the whole tour I never felt in danger or overstrained. Blaz is a great guy who can explain everything to you, can tell you a lot of interesting things about the region and is always up for a funny saying. An all-round successful day for me. Very recommendable.
