Event: Exploring Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia & the Dolomites of Northern Italy with Gary ScottPosted by Adventure 16 | 09.24.2019
The High Tatras of Slovakia
Award winning travel and walking guide Gary Peter Scott (GPS) will share photos, stories and travel tips discovered from spending ten years walking and exploring Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia and the Dolomites of northern Italy -- some of the most stunning, fascinating and less traveled destinations in Europe. You’ll be inspired to get out there and travel more as he talks about these “best kept secret spots” and maybe even join him on one of his award winning trips.
THE DOLOMITES of Northern Italy --Known as “the world’s most enchanting mountains,” and one of the world’s newest U.N.E.S.C.O. listed nature sites - the Dolomites are a hiker, walker, climber and nature lovers paradise and one of the overall BEST places in the world for incredible hiking, mountain views, culture, history, tradition, hospitality, food, fun and a great alpine atmosphere - which anyone at any level of fitness or hiking experience can enjoy - especially with an expert guide.
CROATIA -- Super hot travel places and still yet (for now) to be on the typical tourist routes. Explore the heart of Europe on the beautiful Adriatic coast with its turquoise seas and golden sun; fascinating 3,000 year old Roman villages; and experience great seafood, truffles and the world’s best olive oil.
SLOVENIA -- Journey to the foothills of the eastern Julian Alps and immerse yourself in stunning beauty and rich culture while exploring Tuscan-like vineyards, super cool Ljubljana old town; UNESCO caves and castles, tranquil lakes and spectacular gorges. The best kept secret in Europe!
SLOVAKIA -- The High Tatra mountains of Slovakia were just awarded the “Lonely Planet’s No. 1 - Best in Europe Destination for 2019 - a pretty huge honor coming from the world’s largest travel guidebook company. Gary is proud to offer tours to see the BEST of Slovakia in 2020.
