Additional info


The listed price of the trip is per person based on double occupancy.

Traveling Solo?

You’re in good company.

Opt for a Private Room to yourself, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $265 USD.

For trips May 1, 2024 onwards, the supplemental cost is $295 USD.

Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. 

If you don’t opt for a Private Room, you'll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender.


Arrival & Departure

Our trip begins in the afternoon of Day 1, when we will take a walking tour of Kamnik and then enjoy a welcome dinner together. We suggest that you arrive at Ljubljana-Brnik airport, Slovenia’s main airport (and just a 15 minute drive from Kamnik, where we will be based throughout this trip) in the morning so you have time to settle into our accommodations and meet your group and guide by early afternoon. Our trip concludes on the morning of Day 6. If leaving directly after our trip, we recommend departing anytime on Day 6. 

Activity Level

Travelers should feel comfortable walking two to four miles over the course of each day, climbing stairs, and remaining on their feet for long periods of time. We will be doing many walks in the woods on mostly flat but sometimes uneven terrain, and there are at least two short hikes of around 30 minutes uphill.

Health & Safety

On one day of this trip, you’ll be in close proximity to bees alongside experienced beekeepers. If you have a severe allergy to bee venom, please reach out to us to see if this trip is right for you.

Foraging Expectations

When foraging for wild foods, various factors have to align to find exactly what you're looking for. It's important to keep in mind that we'll be at nature's whim, and even with the guidance of seasoned experts, there's a chance we won't find what we're looking for. No matter the outcome, it will be a fantastic opportunity to learn—and, without doubt, great fun. 

When we get lucky- here are some things that we might find:

Spring Foraging: wild garlic, dandelion greens, forest dandelion, hop shoots, violets and other flowers, medicinal mushrooms, watercress and its relatives, elderflower

Fall Foraging: mushrooms, meadowsweet, plantain, nettles, thistles, rosehips, wild berries, wild roots
