Custom made tours, for you or your group

We offer a range of specialized, custom tours. The duration is often 8 days, which is convenient for most airplane schedules. However, any duration is possible: check also our one-day excursion page. For a custom tour, we arrange everything from the moment we pick you up at the airport or trains station until we drop you off at the end of the tour. This way, you make the most of your time in Slovenia!

Until now, we organised custom- and small group nature tours which were dedicated to seeing Butterflies, Birds, Wildflowers (botany), Reptiles as well as Hiking tours. Please contact us if you have other wishes because we can often arrange this!

Practical information

Tour price

In general, the price of our custom tours is around 200 Euro per person per day, when there are at least two participants.

This price includes: accommodation, meals, transport in Slovenia, guiding, transfer between Ljubljana airport and the accommodation.

The price does not include: airplane tickets, travel insurance, any private expenses, alcoholic drinks

Depending on the accommodation, there can be a single-room supplement.

Optional additions: bear-watching: 80-100 Euro per person; entrance fees; transfer from other arrival points like Venice airport.

Your guides

Your principal guides will be Paul or Jana (both for larger groups), who are licensed local guides and naturalists, living in southern Slovenia. They speak English, Slovenian and Dutch. Sometimes, they are joined by other specialized guides. For instance, in caves, there will be a specialist cave/guide.

Accommodation options

For groups, we cooperate with several local accommodations which are comparable with Agritourism or a countryside hotel.

For families and groups of friends of up to 4 people, we can include staying in our authentic Slovenian farmhouse called the Dormouse house, see the tab “Holiday House” on this website.

Transport options during the tour

1 – 3 participants: a personal car, the guide is also the driver

4 – 8 participants: a minibus, the guide is also the driver

8 – 15 participants: a small bus with a professional driver

Meals during the tour

We think that tasty, high-quality meals are a very important part of any tour! Where possible we prefer it when we can eat local dishes, based on locally produced ecological products. Often, we include seasonal fruits and other farm products.

Breakfasts often include home-made bread with pršut (Slovenian wind-dried ham), cheese and eggs from local farms, as well as home-made marmalade and Slovenian honey.

Lunch during our tours is often a tasty picnic, which we enjoy in a beautiful, natural area. Such a picknick consists of delicious home-baked bread and a variety of local products depending on the seasons together with home-made juice and Slovenian tea.

Dinner is usually served at the accommodation, but in case you stay at our farmhouse “the Dormouse house” we may drive with you to a local farmhouse and eat there. Have you every tried Slovenian štruklji, which are a delicious kind of dumplings, or ajdove zganci, a buckweed-based food – a Slovene staple from the old times?

We can provide vegetarian meals and of course take any requirements into account which you may have, like allergies and based on religious beliefs. We will ask you about this sometime before the start of the tour. Sometimes, it means that we will have to buy ingredients which are not available locally.
