1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

This was a fantastic vacation. We met some lovely people and our guide Jan was very friendly and helpful throughout our visit. The week was well planned with plenty of activities as well as some down time in the evening to recover from the days events!!! As beginners on the slopes we were excited to learn and grateful for the patience and tuition of the ski instructor.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

I would say you have to have a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy this trip to the full and not have the feeling of holding others in the group back. I would also recommend packing some 'spikes' for your normal footwear as walking in the towns and on some of the tracks, can be very slippery on the ice. Also do some general stretching before partaking in the activities!!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I would say the local population benefit from tourism brought to the area. There was not much litter that I could see, but was disappointing to see the odd discarded plastic bottle in the woodlands. I think generally people are environmentally aware and take their rubbish home. There is ongoing conservation work continuing following the 2004 storms.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Fantastic. Would recommend to friends with similar interests and fitness. Communication from Petr, the organiser was also excellent.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Wow, what a question, everything was great! The dogsledding was a highlight, the thermal pools was most enjoyable, the Zeleno Pleso hut was very special, the setting was out of this world, I thought I was dreaming! And to learn more about the Slovakian culture was also great!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Bring very warm clothes! We are from Africa so for us it was very cold. And make sure that you have some level of fitness, especially for the hike to the hut. We did the up one day and the down the next. To do it in one day would have been too tough for us.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

For sure! All the activities were hosted by local people and our environmental impact was almost nothing.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was wonderful.Our guide Dana was the best! She was so friendly and helpful. She went way out of her way to make our trip a memorable one! We couldnt have asked for a better guide! The drivers were also so friendly, on time and helpful. Petr was amazing too. He was so caring and made sure that he organised the best for us. Thank you thank you!!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Dog sledding and the hike up to the hut were very exciting activities but I would say that all organised activities were great. We all throughly enjoyed it! I really rate our guide Dana. She looked after us very well, and helped with every detail! I will miss her!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for an active vacation.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I would think so.

review 4 Jan 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The whole thing was excellent. My children loved learning to ski and the dog sledding, but I think my favorite was the winter walk on New Years day.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Snow would probably be better during the February Half term - but if you want to book at Christmas it is still fantastic, you just might need to be more flexible.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Slovakia is a fantastic destination, but it is not as well marketed as other countries. I feel that our visit supported our guide and driver in specific and the local economy in general.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent trip for active families.
