Our Story

Our story did not start with the establishment of the company in 2015, but 5 years earlier when the Institute of Sustainable Tourism GoodPlace was born. This organization now plays an important role in the development of sustainable tourism in Slovenia and globally.

Trans Slovenia™ and Visit GoodPlace are therefore just a continuation of our mission. They’re a place where we bring our knowledge and sustainable tourism products to life.

Our mission

Our mission is to create authentic and unique experiences for our guests while supporting responsible travel and nature preservation.

Sustainability policy

We aim to minimize negative effects on the natural and social environment and maximize benefits to local businesses.

“Today’s tourism trend always uses the word ‘authenticity,’ but using the word isn’t enough. For behavior to be real, locals should believe it’s right for their community. If visitors enjoy it, great, but not as the first concern.”
- Jan Klavora for Bicycling Magazine
“In Slovenia, just bringing in tourists without a sustainability strategy is worse than having no tourists. Our hope for Bike Slovenia Green is that destinations here, and elsewhere in the world, realize you can be responsible and popular. The larger goal is to show responsibility and tourism are the same.”
- Jana Apih for Bicycling Magazine

Top quality service

Quality over quantity. Ask our guests.

We did the Trans Slovenia 01 with 14 guys from Belgium

It was a wonderful experience. We are impressed by the beautiful country and the openness of the people. Our guide Andrej was very pleasant. It was nice that he knew a lot about the history of the country. He is also flexible and pleasant to deal with. We rent hardtail, fully and e-bikes. They were all from a very good quality. Congratulations to Good-place who has made this trip work so well!

Incredible MTB tour in beautiful Slovenia!

I visited Slovenia for the first time with a group of friends and we decided to explore the country on a bike. Visit GoodPlace team was amazing! They gave us great information and advice, and offered us top level support during the Trans Slovenia 01 tour. Already on the first day we discovered that Slovenia is extremely beautiful. We loved the views of the mountains, valleys, rivers, vineyards and the sea! Also the food in our hotels was delicious. I hope to come back next year and make another tour. Thank you!

Absolute EPIC tour! Highly recommend Visit GoodPlace

My friend and I recently did a tour with Visit GoodPlace and I cannot speak highly enough of this company. Their attention to detail, efforts to ensure we had a good trip, communication, routes provided and accommodation were absolutely brilliant. Great company! We did the Trans Slovenia 04 tour which was tough, but absolutely worth the uphill climbs for the epic downhill runs. Slovenia is a stunning country and traveling from the north to south you get to see it all.

Outstanding / Faultless

We recently cycled self-guided for one week. From our first contact with the company their service and response was outstanding. And the whole trip was exactly as promised. This is our 14th tour around the world and this is one of the very best. Great bikes, great accommodation, fabulous routes. A very thorough, reliable and professional company. We hope to bike with you again and wish more cycle companies were of your very high standard. Thank you Katja and all the Visit GoodPlace team!
