Day 1:

On arrival our team will meet you at the airport with a greeting sign & a big smile. Then we transfer from the airport to the Tolmin area, to enjoy a welcome drink and have an introductory meeting. After a fulfilling dinner, we relax with new friends & can participate in the evening arranged games. A pleasant introduction to your active family holiday with us.

Day 2:

Surrounded by majestic green hills, working together you’ll learn to master the art of white water rafting along 2-4 rated stretches of the emerald green SocaRiver. As always we will stop for water games, swimming and general fun time. Experiencing the crystal clear waters of the Soca river will have a lasting imprint on your life not just your holiday.

Day 3:

Today, you venture off together on your mountain bikes, to discover more sides to this stunning region. Winding your way along quiet roads, off-the-beaten track paths & lush meadows, this has to be the ultimate cycling experience. Off course, we will cool down, jumping into the crystal clear river. It’s moments like this, you’ll wish to capture forever. So have your camera to hand!

Day 4:

Today our guide will take you on a trek into the incredible Tolminka Gorge. Here you will be transported into a new world of caves, caverns and gorge trails. Running through the gorge is the stunning Soca waters and at times you feel as if you are in a scene from Indiana Jones especially as you cross the wooden plank path bridges. The Tolminka Gorge is a true spot of natural beauty and is a joy to experience. Walking boots are recommended but not essential. As with all the activities a moderate to good level of fitness is required as you will be walking up and down stone steps [some steep and uneven]. 

Day 5:

Today, you have many possibilities. VisitLake Bled, Paraglide, hire a mountain bike, swim in the river, sunbathe, relax by the pool, play football, discover the local heritage, folklore & culture. Ask Vamos Travel for more ideas!

Day 6:

Today will be spent on the Soca river; cooling, paddling, playing & relaxing in its emerald fresh waters. We’ll be trying out the Canoe styled mini rafts for adventuring along the river rapids, stopping for water games, swimming and a very tasty BBQ to refuel the batteries. Undoubtedly, its days like this, when you realise why Slovenia Activity holidays are so highly praised. We look forward to your comments, pictures & stories.

Day 7:

Taking a short walk through the picturesque Prsjak gorge, we begin to jump, slip & slide our way down stream with escalating heights. The adventure will be like no other you’ve ever experienced, even descending a 27m waterfall, with assisted ropes. This will definitely be a memorable experience, to treasure forever. People afraid of jumping or heights shouldn’t worry, please talk to an expert at Vamos Travel.

Day 8:

After a late breakfast, there will be some time for shopping, brisk walks about town, and then we must make our sad farewells and take you home for your airport departure. This is always the hardest activity, as it is hard to say good bye to the new friends we have made during your family activity holiday. However, at Vamos Travel we say ‘until the next time! We never say goodbye!’ We look forward to your next Slovenia active break.

    A: Yes. It is extremely important that all travelers booked must have travel insurance, whilst travelling with us. Its part of our booking conditions, as we want your safety to come first.

  • Protection & financial security

    Q: What protection can you offer us? How can I check, you’re actually a legally running UK company?
    A: Your holiday time is important, so we know there is lot at stake here!  Rest assured, we are a very real & trust worthy company. and not an internet cowboy. We are: Vamos Travel Ltd – our UK address is: Pure Offices, 54, Plato Close, Leamington Spa, CV34 6WE – England. We abide to UK laws and regulations. Make an appointment and visit us! A UK limited company has to be registered with www.companieshouse.gov.uk A legitimate travel firm should be able to provide you a companies house number. Don’t be afraid to ask for this straight away. Our company No. 4378409. Also, legitimate companies will be registered with the ‘Civil Aviation authority’ a government run scheme. Each company registered – has an ATOL number. This number can be checked on the website www.atol.org.uk – Vamos Travel Ltd – has the ATOL number 5927 

    Q: Which is better ATOL or ABTA?
    A: Both are industry recognized, and both enable you the consumer to do your research into a company’s background. Always book a holiday with a company that legitimately and directly holds one of these licenses. Remember some agents might claim they are ATOL or ABTA, simply by placing a logo on their documents! This is largely a scam, and one we keep seeing on pop up websites! Always ask for the companies official number, and check it on the UK government website – www.atol.org.uk 

    Q: Tell me more about the different forms of protection against insolvency?
    A: This is a slightly more complicated question, and it doesn’t help when one company claims that ABTA is better than ATOL (& visa versa). What ‘you’ the consumer must understand is that the organiser of a package holiday must, at all times, be able to show sufficient evidence of security for pre-payments and for repatriation in the event of insolvency. There are 4 methods currently recognized within the industry: Trust accounts, ATOL, ABTA & specialist insurances. 

    Q: How else do we know our booking will be secure, when we are abroad?
    A: Vamos Travel ltd is not only ATOL protected but we pay our suppliers & local staff before you travel. This means all your services are paid in full before you arrive in the country! Also, our company holds no bank loans or takes credit! So unlike the big travel companies [with their fancy TV adverts] going bankrupt, and giving the industry a bad name – we deliver on our payment promises! You are in safe hands.

  • Reviews

    Q: Do customers leave feedback or reviews of your holidays?
    A: Yes, we take great pride in receiving them. Each holiday program has there own review tab, so new customers can hear the voices of our past & repeat clients. Please see the ‘review’ tab button on this page. On the home page of our website, you can also locate the general review centre button. But do note, that these reviews are not specifically related to the holiday you are currently reading/reviewing. Enjoy the reading, as there are many top tips & insider advice!

    Q: How do I leave feedback?
    A: Some holidays we ask our clients to complete a feedback form 

    Q: Can I send feedback directly to a general manager / company director?
    A: All feedback is received by our product managers, not your 1-1 travel consultants. The feedback forms are then used for our staff’s monthly evaluations. The most praised staff during that month receives various rewards.
