After a hearty breakfast, we will experience the best that Bled has to offer. We will take a tour of the Bled Castle, and go for a relaxing ride with the traditional Pletna boat to Bled Island. For a bit of healthy exercise, we will hike along the stunning natural attraction of Vintgar Gorge. We will also visit the less crowded but just as beautiful Lake Bohinj located in the heart of Triglav National Park. You can also take a cable car to Vogel Mountain, rising above the lake and offering some of the best views in the country, before returning back to Bled.

DAY 3 - From Karst to Mediterranean

Don’t believe a fearsome dragon was living in the Karst underworld? After a scenic drive to Postojna, you will see with your own eyes that the stories are true when you meet the “baby dragons” living in Postojna cave. World-renowned for its mysterious underground world, you will find out that Karst is just as interesting on the surface. If you are brave enough, step into the fairytale world of knights at Predjama Castle, which is the largest cave castle in the world. Experience the company of over 300 Lipizzan horses in Lipica, one of the oldest stud farms on the planet. After an eventful day, our group will depart for the beautiful seaside where you’ll have some free time in the evening to explore.

DAY 4 - Slovenian Coast

Make sure to put on some sunscreen and grab your sunglasses when exploring the sunny and warm Slovenian Coast. The famous old town Piran will charm you with its well-preserved ancient town walls and the narrow streets with countless stories to tell. Did you know that this picturesque town grew with the help of salt? Prepare to be amazed when visiting the Sečovlje salt pans, which are one of the last remaining salt pans in the Mediterranean that still maintain the 700-year-old tradition of producing salt by hand. In the late afternoon, we’ll head back to Ljubljana where you can enjoy the town’s lively atmosphere and the fantastic nightlife.

DAY 5 - Ljubljana

Our final day of your 5 days in Slovenia will be spent strolling the lively Slovenian capital. We will discover the city’s main sights and attractions on a walking tour through the old town and enjoy a leisurely boat ride on the Ljubljanica River, which will let us see the city from a different perspective. We will also pay a visit to the Ljubljana Castle, a mighty fort overlooking the city, which offers a breathtaking view not only of Ljubljana but also of the Alps in the north. As you might have heard, Ljubljana is known as a mecca for foodies, so we recommend trying some traditional cuisine for the perfect finish to your Slovenian holiday.

Things to know

It’s simple. All you have to do is write to us. If you want to travel solo, we will arrange the trip, so that it’s just for you. If you are looking for a company – let us know. We will try to find the right travel buddies for you!

On our tours, we want to adjust for your needs as much as possible. That’s why we use a few different accommodations with the same quality. The place of your stay depends on your preferences, budget and hotels’s availability, especially if we travel during peak season. But don’t worry about it! We will inform you in advance of all the details.

We provide transportation between all the locations listed in the tour offer. You can also add a ride to and from the airport for an additional fee – all you have to do is let us know in advance.

Everyone has different preferences, that is why we have decided to give you a free hand in choosing restaurants, this way everyone can eat what they want. We can recommend some places to you, and if you would like to eat at a particular restaurant, we can make a reservation for you – just let us know. The guide will also be happy to tell you where food is delicious. One thing is for sure – you will not go hungry!

A lot depends on how severe your restrictions are. Vegetarian meals are readily available in most restaurants. Vegan and gluten-free meals are harder to find, especially in suburbs, smaller towns, and villages. There probably won’t be dishes listed on the menu for more specific diets. However, you can always call the restaurant in advance or ask on the spot about not including harmful ingredients in your dish.

Slovenia is beautiful every time of the year, but you need to dress differently for each season, so check the weather forecast for your week of holiday before departing. In Slovenia, your guide will inform you every evening about the expected weather for the next day. But remember, weather in the Alps region can change from summer to winter in one day, so we recommend you take extra layers of clothing with you, including a waterproof jacket.

Our company respects the wishes of all kinds of travellers, so we definitely understand if you want to spend time on your own. As long as it doesn’t overlap with the group schedule, you can customize your trip in any way and spend some time on your own. Our priority isn’t rigidly following the itinerary but allowing every guest to feel comfortable and enjoy every aspect of their tour in Slovenia.
