When it comes to outdoor activities, Slovenia is a land of limitless possibilities. Everywhere you turn, there’s a scenic valley to hike through, a majestic mountain to climb, or a crystal-clear river to raft down. On this 8-day outdoor active tour in Slovenia, you will experience some of the best adventures that the country has to offer. 

Your journey will begin in one of the most scenic alpine resorts in Slovenia, Bled. On the day of your arrival, you will have the option of exploring the town on your own or experiencing some of the best highlights like taking a ride to Bled island in the traditional Pletna Boat or learning the rich history of the magnificent Bled Castle. You should also save some energy because you are going to need it the next day.

Experienced guides will take you on an adventurous kayaking trip on the untamed Sava river, and that is only the beginning. For a proper dose of adrenaline, you will get wet by going canyoning down the cool streams near Bled, which will excite even the most demanding adrenaline seekers. Our next stop will be in Bovec, the adventure capital of Slovenia. We will discover the many curves of the Soča river by going white water rafting and conquering its infamous rapids under the guidance of experienced local guides.

To take in all the beauty of Soča Valley we will visit Virje Waterfall, hike to the Soča river source, and marvel at the magical Šunik water grove. A scenic ride over the Vršič mountain pass will take us to the capital city of Ljubljana. There we will explore the famous architecture, with a bike tour and feel the city’s lively vibe. Last but not least we will take you back in time on the high pastures of Velika Planina, where you will be taken back in time by a unique shepherd’s village.

After coming back home and looking at the photos of your 8 days in Slovenia it will be hard to believe that you experienced all of that in just eight unique, action-packed, unforgettable days.

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.
