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, caves, 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 visible from Bled are great for active travelers and nature lovers. It's ideal for hiking, and the Soca River makes for good rafting. We work with some of the best located accommodations in the Julian Alps, within the Soca Valley, if you'd really like to focus on Slovenia's nature. Slovenia's coastline is short, but scenic. Visit it from lovely medieval Piran, one of the Mediterranean's best preserved, authentic, and most romantic towns.

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. Austria is also a natural next destination, as it's visible just a short distance from Bled. An EU and Schengen Area member, visitors can enjoy borderless travel to Italy and Austria without having to change money.

We can't recommend JayWay Travel highly enough! Their years of travel experience and a la carte approach to planning allowed us to avoid large tour groups and travel independently with confidence, choosing where we wanted to go and when! Their expertise and support both before and during our trip made every aspect of our trip to Croatia and Slovenia go perfectly! It was a dream trip!!

Frequently Asked Questions about travel to Slovenia

When is the best time to visit Slovenia?

We recommend visiting from early April to mid-June, or from early September to late October. Slovenia’s weather is fairly temperate, with somewhat cold winters (although the mountains are naturally colder than the rest of the country), and warm summers. The mountains bring rain, with thunderstorms common from May to September, and fog relatively frequent in Ljubljana.

What is Slovenian cuisine like?

Slovenia has done an excellent job of assimilating all the best foods from its neighbors, from Italian pizza to Austrian pastries and Mediterranean seafood, although the food tends to be heavy. Seek out Prekmurska Gibanica, a layered pastry that resembles a Napoleon Cake, and is filled with poppy seeds, walnuts, apples, raisins, and cheese. We also recommend the Carniolan sausage, which resembles kielbasa (also known as a Polish sausage).

Slovenia inherited Austria’s coffee culture (not to mention cafes and pastries), although the coffee served tends to be as strong, like in its southern neighbors. Beer is the most popular alcohol, but the country also produces good wines. Visitors will find brandy, known as Zganje or Snops (pronounced like “Schnapps”) made from many different fruits. Slovene tap water is perfectly potable. We recommend visiting a Gostilna, a traditional inn serving wine and traditional specialties, such as Cesnjevec, a sweet cherry liqueur served as a digestif, or used in making cakes and other desserts.

When are the public holidays in Slovenia?

- 1 and 2 January: New Year
- 8 February: Slovenian cultural festival - Prešeren Day
- Easter Monday
- 27 April: Uprising Against the Occupation Day
- 1 and 2 May: Labour Day
- 8 June: Primož Trubar Day  (not a work-free day) 
- 25 June: National Day 
- 15 August: Feast of the Assumption 
- 17 August: Merging of Prekmurje Slovenians with the rest of Slovenia after World War I (not a work-free day) 
- 15 September: Merging of Primorska with the rest of Slovenia (not a work-free day) 
- 31 October: Reformation Day 
- 1 November: All Souls Day 
- 23 November: Rudolf Maister Day
(not a work-free day) 
- 25 December: Christmas 
- 26 December: Independence and Unity Day

On public holidays (other than the ones noted as not work-free) you can expect banks and government offices to be closed as well as most local shops.

What is transportation like in Slovenia?

Slovenia’s train network is fairly effective, and most routes have brand new trains. However, there are some gaps, and most lines go through Ljubljana, so if you’re trying to get between two other places, your route may not be very direct. Slovenia’s economic boom meant more money for trains and highways, but as car ownership has exploded, funding for buses has fallen, hurting service, and causing traffic problems in cities. Car rental often works well, especially since most of Slovenia’s attractions are rural, and often quite mountainous. Slovenia does not have toll roads like Croatia, but does require the purchase of a vignette, a highway pass purchased when picking up a car or crossing the border via highway.

Is Slovenia safe?

Slovenia is a very safe, quiet country, and even its rougher areas are still quite secure. As is the case anywhere, beware of pickpockets in crowded areas.
