If you are in Slovenia and looking for a mountain adventure, do yourself the favor of contacting Exploring Slovenia! Neja was extraordinarily helpful in selecting a hike that would be challenging but doable and safe for our group, organizing a guide and curating an incredible experience. The guide she set us up with, Franci, was friendly, easy going and set a perfect pace for the hike we did hiked Špik mountain.
Before and after our official hike, Neja responded to my numerous emails in a very timely fashion, and after our guided tour gave me several other recommendations for hiking in the area. I was able to extend my trip for 3 days and she recommended 3 extraordinary hikes that elevated my whole trip: Triglav Double Lakes, Viševnik and Jezerski Stog. The fall colors, vast peaks and well maintained trails were truly remarkable. Her friendliness, enthusiasm and professionalism far exceeded my expectations. She went out of her way to make sure I had a great time in Slovenia hiking and I truly can’t thank her enough!
We had the best day climbing Mala Mojstrovka. We didn’t really know what to expect from our first via ferrata… and we absolutely loved it. It was a challenging climb, but we always felt safe and secure with Franci. The weather cooperated and we had spectacular views all the way up. We would highly recommend Exploring Slovenia for anyone seeking an adventure in the Julian Alps.
"Booking with Exploring Slovenia was the right decision! I spent one week in Bled and Bohinj and booked 4 trips with them. They made my stay enjoyable, adventurous, practical, and safer! I basically got the best out of it. Friendly team and flexible according to your needs and hiking level. Overall, high quality for pretty competitive prices!"
Climbing Triglav in 2 days with Neja was an amazing experience. She is a very attentive, motivating and well-organized guide. She answered all possible questions before the tour and prepared us well for the hike. I can highly recommend doing a tour with Exploring Slovenia!
We had an absolutely incredible experience hiking Vrtaško Sleme with Exploring Slovenia. We particularly enjoyed the breathtaking views at the top, but the scenery and wildlife was great as well. Our guide, Neja, was wonderful company, and well prepared with both gear and snacks. We would do another guided hike with her in a heartbeat!

"What a stunning first day in the mountains! I could never have imagined it when leaving Ireland and was so pleased I’d chosen Exploring Slovenia. These guys were great fun to be with and the day was such an awesome start to my trip that I couldn’t wait for the next day to come!" ... Read more in Nick's Blog!
"One of the best trips of our lives. We did the From Bohinj to Soča Valley Trek and it was breathtaking. With beautiful mountains and lakes. Booking with Exploring Slovenia made all the difference with a very kind and attentive team. We have warm memories not only because of the place, but due to the amazing guiding team as well. We can’t wait to go back, we totally recommend it ❤️"

Neja was our lovely guide, extremely knowledgable, helpful and patient. Her communication before the trip was excellent and was very punctual. The trips that she organised was exactly what was asked for. Throughly recommend. Thanks Neja!!"
"Thank you Exploring Slovenia for taking me on a scenic and safe hike! Neja was my enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who was able to set the perfect pace for me as a moderately fit hiker. Leading up to the hike, Neja was very responsive and informative on email which made the entire process run smoothly. We did the Roblek Hut which surprisingly in Spring, was full of snow - how magical!
Thankfully Neja had me well-equipped for the conditions, providing me with the necessary gear, lunch and hot tea to get me comfortably up and down the mountain. The views were well worth the climb, and also worth mentioning, Neja has a great eye for photography, meaning I now have some awesome photos to remember this day!
Next time I am in Slovenia, I will definitely be participating in another hike with Exploring Slovenia (and I highly recommend that you should too!)."
"Mt. Stol was a unique adventure for me with an amazing and supportive guide. It was challenging since I was a beginner, but totally worth it if you have the stamina for it! The perfect support and care was provided. Totally recommend it."
"Prior to Covid 19 pandemic, we arranged to hike up Mt Triglav with Exploring Slovenia. From start to finish, our guide Neja made us feel at ease. During the hike she was encouraging, supportive and patient. Great emphasis was made on safety, and we were provided with all the specialist equipment that we required for the climb. We had a wonderful experience that we will never forget! Also a great sense of achievement after climbing Slovenia’s highest mountain! I cannot recommended Exploring Slovenia and Neja highly enough - 5 stars +!!!
"Neja the guide brought her dog Rubi on our tour to Vrtaški Vrh, my 7th tour with Exploring Slovenia, and she turned out to be great fun! :) The trail started above a small Alpine town Mojstrana and first took us steeply up through a forest. When we arrived to the first meadow with gorgeous views, we had a break with snacks and then continued to hike in a beautiful more open landscape. At the top there was a stunning meadow with incredible views, and some very interesting tall plants with flowers that made me feel like I was on another planet lol. All in all, I'm definitely going back to do more tours with Exploring Slovenia with Neja, the best guide there is! I already have a list for next year."
"As part of my work in Ljubljana, I had an afternoon of spare time at my disposal, so I contacted Neja a few days in advance to ask if she could organize a guided ski tour, as I had no local knowledge of the mountains of Slovenia at all. She responded immediately with a binding offer, so I was looking forward to experiencing an active afternoon. The material made available to me was as good as new and of high quality at the same time and my mountain guide Miha is a very amiable, competent, attentive and extremely capable partner. Our tour together was a lot of fun and despite my relatively late availability that day, we were able to climb 1700 meters in altitude before it was getting dark. I am very sure that all other mountain tours offered by Neja are just as recommendable as I have experienced this ski tour. For this reason I would only ask Neja at the next opportunity"
"Soča Valley’s nature and gorges were just amazing. I will never forget the Turquoise color of the river. Due to a slight injury in my ankle that I had a few days before the trip, the team was patient with me, flexible to make last minute changes in the itinerary to still provide an amazing adventure regardless of my injury. This was way better than staying in the hotel room! Thank you!"
"I had an incredible day of hiking through the stunning Triglav National Park with our guide Neja. Starting low in the valley we quickly ascended through a stunning forest marked with waterfalls overflowing with spring snow melt. That took us up to the picturesque Black Lake before we carried on above the snow line to reach the Triglav Double Lake, a deep emerald colour standing out against the surrounding snow. In the afternoon we looped around the alpine trails, stopping for a late lunch at the Komna Hut before heading back down the valley to our starting point. Neja was a great tour guide, I certainly wouldn't' have wanted to do this hike without someone with her local knowledge given how quickly the weather can change on the mountain."
"I only had a short time in Slovenia and I really wanted to do 2 things; climb Triglav and sleep in a mountain hut. I booked a 2-day tour with Exploring Slovenia and I was so happy I did. From start to finish they were great, super friendly, very knowledgeable and I never once felt unsafe under their guidance. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting some Slovenian adventures 🏔💓 I booked onto the 2-day tour to Triglav from Pokljuka with Exploring Slovenia. It was by far the best thing I did on my trip to Slovenia. Neja and the team were really friendly and made us feel completely at ease in the mountains. The views were incredible and it was great fun sleeping in the hut. The Slovene "welcome" on top of Triglav is certainly unique… I would highly recommend booking with Exploring Slovenia to find out why!"
"I was traveling in Slovenia with my mom in July and booking Exploring Slovenia's hiking tours was the best decision I made! We spent 10 days in Bled and booked 4 tours in the mountains with them. Our guide Neja was very kind and patient and adapted the tours so my 70-year-old mom could also enjoy stunning nature and the mountains. We both loved it!! She even managed to hike to 1911 m which was fantastic for my mom! We both have great memories of the tours and can't wait to come back again. I highly recommend this mountain guiding agency to anyone. As of myself, I already have more hikes planned with them for August!"
"We found Neja's article about the Ibexes online and asked her about some advice. We ended up with a private tour with Neja as our guide. It was one of our greatest experiences in Slovenia. Without asking, Neja made a custom-made-adventure for us, based on our options and wishes. We had a really great experience; we hiked up a mountain, hid from a storm in a cave, looked for Ibexes (and found them!) and had lunch in a fantastic spot. There was almost no one else in the mountains but us. The mountains, the animals that we saw, the professional and personal touch of Neja… it was an awesome day for us! We definitely recommend a tour with Exploring Slovenia!"

"We've been hiking for more than 20 years now and Neja's agency and her guides are one of the best and loviest people we have met and with plenty of experience. We did a 2-day tour to Triglav and they took really good care of us (with great emphasis on safety at all times) while having a lot fun. I will for sure hike with them again and so should you!"

"After my July vacation in Slovenia, when I joined Exploring Slovenia on four tours in the mountains and had such a great time, I simply had to go back in August. It really absorbs you, you know. The first new tour we did was Viševnik. It wasn’t a difficult hike - could be also fun for families with children! - and the nature and scenery along the way were beautiful. The abundant wild flowers and their scents resembled a walk in a flower garden. Since it was a weekend the top was pretty crowded, but we found a perfect spot nearby where we were alone and the views stupendous (the location is our little secret lol)!"
"Kofce was a lovely sunny hike. The first 2 hours in a forest before reaching an open space surrounded by beautiful mountains, animals, and very tasty Slovenian dessert. There, we ended up reaching 2 mountain peaks with a stunning view!"
"Excellent first overnight trekking experience during our stay in Slovenia. Contact with the guide was easy and comfortable before we even committed. She was extremely accommodating with our travel dates and answered all our questions. A comprehensive packing and preparation document was sent well in advance. We’re rather active and fit which wasn’t a problem for Neja and her impressive level of fitness. Professional, intelligent guide who thought of everything from start to finish - I highly recommend these tours. Thank you Neja for the unforgettable memories!"

"First time hiking in a long time, and I am glad I did it with Neja. The mountains were beautiful and Neja's knowledgeable and cheerful aura added to the enjoyment (made the hike less painful). I saw sheep grazing at the top of the mountain, paraglider jumping off the side of the mountain. The amazing views all around of the Julian Alps and walking on the ridge between Slovenia and Austria is something I will remember fondly for a very long time."
"We have been very happy about the service from Exploring Slovenia. My 12 year old son and I wanted to climb a mountain in Slovenia during our holiday. We wrote and asked about one trip not sure if we were able to do it. We got an honest answer and were recommended an easier hike to another mountain; Mala Mojstrovka. Also with a hike, climbing Via Ferrata and a peak with a stunning view. We communicated via e-mail a lot before hand - also because of bad weather conditions. Exploring Slovenia found the perfect and safe time of the day. Very flexible and willing to go the extra mile for a fantastic experience for both of us. The guide was very professional, caring and good at taking care of my son. We had high expectations for this trip, but Exploring Slovenia managed to exceed these expectations. Thank you for an unforgettable hike!"
