FIT - Fully Independent Traveler

Sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery Adriatic Sea as you explore Slovenian Coast. The region is known for its Mediterranean Climate rich landscape of olive groves, vineyards and truffles. The heart-warming welcome of its people, the delicious cuisine, the entertaining activities and the many different local delicacies make this destination worth a visit.

Originally the acronym “FIT” stood for “independent foreign tour”. The definitions we have found in the past all have one key word and one concept in common: independent. These travelers almost always design their own itineraries and make their own travel plans. Our planners can help with the planning by providing insights into the unseen places and experiences, such as exploring and enjoying the local cuisine, architecture, history and culture.

Adapting trips for individuals and small groups who want to choose their destinations and plan their own itineraries are one of the areas where the local knowledge of the destination can be used to create a unique plan and deliver the final experience.
