Guests about this trip

Peter,

Slovenija

 

Discover another part of nature, this time thanks to you. It was nice in the Pyrenees. The landscape, society, not too stressful walking make the well-being needed to overcome occasional problems. I am pleased with the one-day experience of the Pyrenees, both with leadership and with the organization.

Miran,

It was great, despite the weather, I would repeat it immediately.
