The Walsh family recently returned from exploring Slovenia on a custom family version of our Best of Slovenia trip. Here's what they had to say about one of our newest destinations:
"We had a fantastic trip! We are always looking for places less traveled and it was one of our all-time favorites. The beauty of the Julian Alps was amazing, as well as the Socca Valley. We loved the fact that one day we didn't pass anyone on the trail for hours until we got to the summer cabins. My son even put it up there with his South Africa trip with school/friends. Hiking was perfect despite some rain. We actually enjoyed the rain and it helped us to stay cool. We were
"Ana was one of the best guides we've ever had."
"She beats a high-end outfitter that we used for Jackson Hole/Tetons last year, as well as any we've had in Europe. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable and organized and she seemed to know our needs before we asked. She was also warm and fun, with a love for what she does and for her country. It takes a special personality to be on a custom trip with just four of us and to fit into our family and we all missed her at the end, which is rare. She is an asset to Wildland!"
"We loved our accommodations. The huts were cozy with hearty food and they were a fun experience. We've traveled for soccer with our kids so they love when we have unique accommodations and we love when they are special and a little more luxurious than what we've had on those road trips. They loved their room in Doba Villa because it had a loft and we all wished we had more time there - it was an excellent hotel. We wished we could have spent another day in Bled and we also loved the restaurant that Ana recommended. It was our favorite and she had a good recommendation for our first night in Ljubljana as well. We all vowed not to tell too many people about Slovenia. It's perfect the way it is. Thanks again for such a memorable trip!" - Lisa Walsh
