Essential Information

Weather & Safety
The weather during the spring/Autumn months is generally sunny days and cold nights.  However, conditions can change very quickly in the mountains. What can start out as a good day can soon become very poor.  It is very important to be well equipped and prepared for all conditions. Trekking in the mountains can be precarious and although we take important steps to manage and minimise this risk, we can never eradicate it altogether. The Leader reserves the right to change the itinerary at any time should the conditions require it. This may be for a variety of reasons – climatic, political, physical or other. In these circumstances we will make the best alternative arrangements possible that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.

Health
All our guides IGMFA qualified and first aid trained and carry fully equipped medical kits for serious medical emergencies. There are no compulsory vaccinations for Slovenia but we recommend you consult your GP before departure. A good level of fitness is required for this trek.  

Altitude
This trek does not involve any significant ascent to altitude and we would not expect any altitude issues with this trek.

Accommodation
The first night you will stay in a 2star Hotel; twin/triple share with en-suite washing facilities. Whilst on the trek you will be staying in comfortable mountain huts with dormitory style rooms with bedding provided. Your last night in Zasip will be in a mountain village guest house.

Passport & Visa
All nationalities require a full passport that must be valid for 6 months beyond the intended length of stay. It is your responsibility to have the correct personal documents and to obtain your own visa, if one is necessary. The information is primarily for UK passport holders, and other nationalities should check with their relevant embassies. Adventurous Ewe is not responsible for the actions of local immigration and customs officials, whether at points of entry or otherwise.

Insurance
It is a condition of joining this trip that you are insured against medical and personal accident. It is compulsory to supply Adventurous Ewe with documentary evidence of your travel insurance prior to departure. Unusually for the Alps, mountain rescue is free in Slovenia unless you are shown to have been ill-prepared or unduly negligent, in which case charges can be extremely high. Mountain rescue teams are very well organised. There is a network of 17 bases around Slovenia, and a helicopter with an experienced team on board is on duty every weekend from June to September.

Guides
A Mountain Guide is someone who holds the IFMGA carnet, the highest qualification in the world for leading people in the mountains, be it skiing, climbing or mountaineering.
In short, Mountain Guides are recognised internationally as mountaineering experts.
what that means is you get the maximum safety possible. All the guides that work with us are carefully chosen.
