Join the Mountain Travel Sobek team on March 29, 2018, for an exciting evening with Slovenia expert Luka Poznic. As manager of our local operations in Slovenia, Luka has been instrumental in putting Slovenia on the map for MTS with classic trips like Hiking Slovenia's Julian Alps and Istria to Venice—A Culinary Route, plus our new trip for 2018 Hiking the Alpe Adria. Being a mine of knowledge on everything Slovenian, he'll lead us on a journey through the country from the alpine lakes and mountains of Triglav National Park and the underground caves of the Karst to the shimmering waters of the Adriatic coastline. He'll also discuss the country's food and wine scene, and may even bring a tipple to enjoy! This is your chance to ask anything about Slovenia and find out why it's one of Europe's best-kept secrets.

There are few treks as satisfying to serious hikers as England’s classic “Coast-to-Coast” trail, considered by many to be one of the top ten hikes in the world! MTS is the only North American adventure travel company to follow all 192 miles of the original “West-to-East” route scouted by Alfred Wainwright, who first blazed the trail in the 1970s. We asked our local guides for their insights into this incredible hike.
Largely unknown outside of Europe, Corsica is often found at the top of the list of the world’s premiere hiking destinations. And it’s one of the most scenic places on Earth, period. Corsica is a veritable mountain in the sea, a playground of pristine waters, jagged coastal paths, unspoilt forests, deep canyons with emerald waters, alpine lakes and snow-capped peaks. Though there are endless hiking possibilities that criss-cross the small Mediterranean island, it’s the GR20 route that hikers dream of completing.
