Bled is an idyllic destination that combines stunning natural scenery with fun outdoor activities. It’s the perfect break from the busier cities in the region. Surrounded by high mountains reflecting on the emerald waters of the glacial Lake Bled, the town’s most prominent feature is a 15th century Baroque church set on the country’s only natural island in the center of the lake. This is a fairytale backdrop for an unforgettable holiday. One of Slovenia’s most popular tourist destinations, Bled is also known for its cuisine, specifically the tasty local trout and the famous Kremsnita, a creamy pastry that provides the perfect ending to every meal. We recommend a tour of the local scenery, including an imposing nearby Vintgar gorge. You can also rent a boat to cruise the lake and explore the church, or simply go swimming or fishing. A day trip to another lake nearby, Bohinj, will provide an even more pristine view of the local nature. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking, and you can also rent bicycles and other sporting equipment from vendors on the lake. The weather is typically mild, and the lake’s water is fed by warm springs. Wherever you go, be sure to take your camera, because picture-perfect views are everywhere, and the natural beauty of the era is truly unique.

Bled by Balloon

Please ask your travel advisor for the cost to add this to your package

Lake Bled and especially the island looks pretty impressive from the ground, more so from the vantage point of Bled Castle but to really get the full picture, and plenty of photo opportunities, it's best seen from way above, in a hot air balloon. An early morning flight over the lake is memory that will stay with you forever.

Day 4 - Your First Full Day in Bovec

Visiting Bovec, Kobarid, and Tolmin

Suggestion to explore on your own

Bovec, Kobarid and Tolmin area offers plenty of day trip opportunities. There are some wonderful natural and cultural attractions in the area, like the beautiful Soca River, the world-renowned World War I Museum in Kobarid, and the Kozjak waterfall near Kobarid, which is famous for an underground chamber with a pool of emerald water. Other highlights include the Tolmin gorges, the Boka and Virje waterfalls near Bovec, and Fort Kluze near Bovec.

Head Downstream

Suggested activities for an additional cost, depending on your choice

The best way to enjoy a river is to join it, so head downstream, whether on a peaceful kayaking tour, or a more adventurous whitewater raft! You can choose how challenging you want your whitewater experience to be, or take it slow and enjoy the river at your own pace, from your own kayak.

Classic Rafting Group Tour

Suggested activities for an additional cost, depending on your choice

There is no better way to test what you are made of than challenging the might of one of the last free-flowing rivers in Europe, the Soca. Experience the bumps, splashes, twists, and turns while making your way down the river! The Soča River has its origins in the Julian Alps and it flows across Slovenia and into Italy until reaching the Mediterranean, yet the 10 km between Boka and Trnovo is the stretch of the river in which you will test yourself!


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 1 hour 30 minutes

Kayaking down the Soca River

Suggested activities for an additional cost, depending on your choice

Kayaking is considered one of the best outdoor sports you can experience. The peacefulness of exploring untouched nature with the satisfaction of overcoming the challenges that the river presents guarantee you'll have a great time! The Soca River offers a plethora of whitewater activities you can experience, yet kayaking is one of the most attractive since adventurers of all age and fitness level can practice it.

Ljubljana enjoys a central position, making it the ideal base for exploring the rest of Slovenia. It is a crossroads culturally due to its location. On one hand, you can see its Central European influences, because of its time within the Austro-Hungarian empire, in the city's architecture and language. On the other hand there is a strong Mediterranean and Balkan influence which is brought out in their laid back approach and the city's café culture. People are often surprised how westernized and advanced Slovenia is putting it more in a class with its Austrian neighbors than its Eastern European and Balkan counterparts. The surrounding areas of the city are packed with natural beauty and cultural sights bearing witness to the city's dynamic history. There is diverse range of places to satisfy culinary desires as the local cuisine is also heavily influenced by its neighbors in all directions. Wine lovers will find Slovenia to be a hidden gem. One of the best ways we have found to get to know Ljubljana and Slovenian cuisine at the same time is on a food tour, which will take you on a gastronomic tour of the whole country while walking around the center. The city layout is tourist friendly as the Old Town has an ever expanding pedestrian zone and a great way to see Ljubljana is by bike taking advantage of the numerous bike lanes spread out across the city.

Castle Views

Suggestion to explore on your own

Start your stay in Ljubljana by taking a funicular or a short walk to reach Ljubljana Castle, with its stunning views of the city below and mountains beyond. Be sure to visit the museum, and if you can, catch a sunset from the castle grounds, especially the tower. End your day on a happy note with a dinner in one of the restaurants within the castle walls. We are confident to say that you will go to bed feeling happy and in love with "the loved one," the literal translation of "Ljubljana."

Day 8

Day 8 - Your First Full Day in Ljubljana

A Taste of sLOVEnia

Included in your vacation package price.

Today you will explore the local gastronomy with an experienced foodie guide, who knows all the best restaurants and food stalls in the city, and more importantly, the history behind them. The tour is also a great way to get acquainted with the city's main attractions and landmarks. You will meet in front of the Preseren monument on Preseren Square at noon. From there you’ll sample delicious seasonal produce, tasting a variety of traditional dishes at stops throughout the center to try several traditional dishes from various Slovenian regions, accompanied by a few glasses of wine and spirits. It’s the best way to taste this diverse yet delicious gastronomy.


Activity Level : Light
Duration : 3 hours 30 minutes

Mix with the Locals

Suggestion to explore on your own

Today we suggest going undercover and becoming a Ljubljančan/Ljubljančanka for a day. Try to embrace as much of Ljubljana's atmosphere as possible and don’t worry about revealing yourself as a newbie. The locals will already know and maybe will even share some stories with you if you’re nice enough. Start by venturing into Vodnik Square, where you’ll find an excellent central market with fresh fruits and vegetables, local specialties and crafts that make wonderful souvenirs. Around the corner from the market, find a bar at the riverbank to drink some coffee. It is obligatory in Ljubljana to drink at least two coffees a day. Once you’ve fed your bodies, it’s time to feed your soul, which is why we encourage you to discover great architecture all around you and get lost into the streets of Ljubljana.

Day 9

Day 9 - Your Second Full Day in Ljubljana

Brda - The Tuscany of Slovenia Private Tour

If you love wine and beautiful destinations, then you're in for a real treat on this full-day excursion to Brda, the Tuscany of Slovenia.

We were so well cared for, it took all the worry out of getting around and making arrangements. The tour that was planned for us was exactly what we hoped for. We have both agreed it was one of the best holidays we have ever had... and we have traveled all over the world for many years.
