Slovenia Vacation & Tour Packages

Visiting Slovenia is ideal for nature lovers, but the cities, like Ljubljana, are also spectacular. Slovenia's landscape offers tremendous variety. In one direction there's the Alps. In another the Mediterranean coast. In between there are forests and river gorges. Those who visit Slovenia always love the diversity of options.

You can see this meeting of Slavic, Central European, Balkan and Mediterranean cultures in Ljubljana, the vibrant capital. It is centrally located and the perfect place from which to day-trip while you're visiting Slovenia.

Explore Slovenia's natural beauty

If you'd like to unwind on your holiday in Slovenia, head to the charming lakeside resort of Bled. This small city sits by a glacial lake with a mountain backdrop. It's ideal for water activities such as swimming and rowing. Plus, the path around the lake makes for a comfortable bike ride. The Julian Alps that you see from Bled are great for active travelers and nature lovers. You can hike or go rafting on the Soca river.

Visit Slovenia's neighbors

Slovenia is a small country, so we often combine a visit here with a longer tour. Venice is just a few hours by road. Then there's Croatia to the south, which along with Slovenia used to be part of Yugoslavia. Slovenia joined the EU in 2004 and became part of the Schengen Area in 2007. So visitors can enjoy practically borderless travel between Italy and Slovenia. You won't have to change money, either. Slovenia has been on the Euro since then too.

Frequently Asked Questions about travel to Slovenia

What is the weather like in Slovenia?

The weather in Slovenia varies from season to season. There are also three climatic influences that meet in the country. A harsh Alpine climate prevails in the mountains, the coast has a sub-Mediterranean climate, and the north-east lowlands have a continental climate. The average temperature is above 20°C (68F) in July, and around 0°C (32F) in January. It is worth checking the current weather before you travel, so that you can dress and pack appropriately.

How much should I tip in Slovenia?

Tipping is not traditionally a common practice in Slovenia although with the influx of foreign visitors it has become more accepted in recent years. Some restaurants and hotels will levy a service charge automatically on a bill and if not around 10% ould be a sufficient amount to tip. Taxi drivers and hotel staff should be rewarded by one or two Euros for good service.

What is Slovenian food like?

Typical Slovene food is influenced by the nighboring Slavic, Hungarian and Italian traditions and is in general wholesome and hearty. Goulash is perhaps the most popular dish, made of beef or lamb and slow cooked in a thick gravy with carrots, mushrooms, potatoes and seasoning.

What kind of electrical system is in use in Slovenia?

Mains electricity in Slovenia is a 230 Volts 50 Hz system. Slovenia uses the Europlug (CEE 7/16). This is the plug used in most other European countries. If you're travelling from outside Europe you should check that your devices (or their chargers) are dual voltage capable before plugging them in - regular plug adapters (as opposed to expensive and heavy transformers) don't perform any voltage transformation so make sure your devices can auto-switch from 110 to 220v.

Can I drink the tap water in Slovenia?

The tap water is safe and should cause no problems. In general water in Slovenia is very hard (high calcium/limescale content).
