5. Where can I find out more on Slovenia?

To learn more about the country, the Slovene Tourist Board website is helpful: www.slovenia.info

If you want more cycling, we will provide a map and you can do some more laps at the end of the day on your own.

7. What if I want less than 30 kms per day?

Don’t worry. We try to accommodate the wishes of the whole group regarding the amount of cycling.

8. What about insurance?

Each participant is responsible for his/her own insurance. We recommend that you arrange your own travel insurance to cover medical expenses, lost luggage, etc.

9. How can I find out more about the teachers? Watch these video clips on YouTube to “meet” the teachers and see pictures of how your holiday might look!

10. Which airport should I fly to? Please contact us before you make your flight reservation so that we can suggest the best option.

11. Do the two Slovenes in the group speak English or Slovene? They speak Slovene to each other but they like speaking  English with the guests and their English friends, the teachers!

We look forward to meeting you!
