Multi-day Tours

Joining our group tours is giving you a possibility for worry-free wildlife holidays in a small group of a maximum of 8 participants. From accommodation, we take day trips to the nicest nature areas in Slovenia, which were carefully selected to offer you the best wildlife experience. During our tours, we walk at an easy pace and devote time to observing and photographing plants and animals. In the middle of the day, we find a quiet place in shadow for a picnic lunch and stay outdoors until the late afternoon.

In 2018 we will be offering at least eight group tours. Three are organised by our company, Institute Symbiosis, so you make a booking directly with us. In the other five tours, we are cooperating with tour agencies from the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Sweden and Japan and since they are the main organisers, you will make a booking with them. However, with all tours, your guide will be Paul Veenvliet, a Dutch biologist who is living in Slovenia since 2004. He knows the area like the back of his hand and can tell many interesting facts about Slovenian nature and species. Paul speaks Dutch, English, German and Slovenian (which is very useful when he has to explain to the curious locals what the group is doing). 

Institute Symbiosis is a non-profit company, through which we carried out many nature conservation projects. In 2016, we started developing ecotourism, became a licenced tour operator and also obtained a status of a social enterprise. We invest our profits in nature conservation projects and awareness raising activities in the local community.
