1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Walking from Yagodina to Trigrad - the path was easy to follow and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. To be so high up in the mountains with nature and eventually descend to overlook Trigrad on the way down was amazing.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Some of the walks are quite treacherous especially if it has been raining. We turned back from finding the highest waterfall at the eco-trail in Devin as the path was unsuitable and very high for navigating with 2 children.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, we loved eating out at the local restaurants and buying gifts and fruit from the local traders. Hotel food was all very good and breakfasts were substantial with a good selection.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Highly recommended, no stress - the majority of the walks are available but not compulsory. We chose to spend one day at the waterpark in Devin and only did half of the eco-trail. The scenery is outstanding and the people are very helpful and friendly and all hotels we used were clean, comfortable and accommodating.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Walking in the mountains through unspoilt meadows where the only sounds were birdcalls and an occasional sheep bell was balm to the soul.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for your hosts to speak no English and to carry your own bags! People are friendly beneath a somewhat dour exterior with a terrific sense of humour but expectations of service differ.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Hard to say, not sure it's my place to judge.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent.
