LAKES & MOUNTAINS OF SLOVENIA

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I think the views from the mountain huts were very inspirational, and also the visits to amazingly romantic Lake Bled.

What did you think of your group leader?

The group leader was very competent and experienced. He  obviously really knew the walks like the back of his hand.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

A lot of the walking was more challenging than I expected, so make sure you've got good fitness, or do regular uphill walking.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I thought the trip advisor was misleading. It promised us 500m average ascent, with a maximum of 700m.By the third walk we were up to 900m and the next two walks were tougher, so I had to opt out of them. I could manage the 700m we been promised, but 200m higher was too much.  Also it told us that we would be walking on well-marked paths with a few loose stones. In actual fact there was a lot of clambering up and down boulders and tree roots. I think if I'd known these things, I wouldn't have chosen this holiday.
