Reviews

HourAwayIconveliki

Just returned from the most fabulous holiday in Slovenia. A new destination for us & an absolute gem. Pristine clean, picture postcard perfect, friendly welcoming accommodation, people & great restaurants. Our trip was organised from start to finish by Nejc from HourAway as a e-bike & hike tour. The e-bikes were super & Nejc’s instruction gave our group the confidence to enjoy them from the start & push that little bit harder to fully enjoy the amazing views from high & sweeping downhills. We swam in lakes, rafted down a clear azure river & enjoyed local food & wine together in traditional restaurants & wineries in out-of-the-way places. This was all due to Nejc’s organisation & creativity devising our itinerary to fit within the number of days we had together. Above all we got to know Nejc & enjoy his company. He is so proud of his country & his enthusiasm for outdoor activities made the most of the scenery, mountains, rivers, villages & local culture. It is without doubt the perfect way to enjoy Slovenia. Go ahead & try it!
