DETAILED ITINERARY

DAY 1: BELOVED AND CHARMING CAPITAL CITY OF LJUBLJANA / half day

This afternoon our local guide will pick you up at your hotel and take you on a food journey in Ljubljana. Our excellent graded Slovenian food & wine city walk in Ljubljana* includes a selection of Slovenian typical dishes and wines. Along with tastings in different restaurants, we will visit Ljubljana’s best features like Plecnik’s Triple bridge, baroque St. Nicholas Cathedral, Renaissance City hall and Art Nouveau street. We will not let you leave hungry of food nor information. You will also get all the important information for the next two days.

Meals: dinner in form of food and wine tastings

Overnight: Ljubljana

*in case of late arrival food tour will be replaced by dinner in a restaurant. Food tour needs to start the latest at 6 pm.

DAY 2: POSTCARD VIEWS IN ALPINE RESORTS OF BLED AND BOHINJ / full day

Start your day excursion to the sunny side of the Julian Alps. Enjoy a picturesque hike in a 1,6 km (1 mile) long Vintgar gorge* which carves its way through the vertical rocks and is graced with waterfalls, pools and rapids. A short ride brings us to the shores of the beautiful glacial lake of Bled surrounded by the Julian Alps. This place is a nature escape for those searching peace and fresh mountain air. To step back in time, we will visit a typical medieval gothic Bled castle built on 130 m (426 feet) high cliff. Optional visit to the tiny island of Lake Bled in the middle of the lake is possible with a traditional wooden rowing boat called pletna. In the island’s church, you can ring a bell of wishes, a tradition, that is most possibly 500 years old. Let’s explore deeper in Triglav National Park and drive through picturesque alpine villages and pastures full of hayracks to the biggest Slovenian lake – Bohinj. Enjoy some free time by the lake or take an optional cable car ride to Mt. Vogel** where you will be rewarded with astonishing views of mountain peaks and lake Bohinj on your palm. If you decide to get a lift above the clouds, let us give you a hint: Lunch up there tastes even better!

Meals: buffet breakfast, lunch in Bohinj

Overnight: Ljubljana

*Vintgar gorge is possible to visit from Easter time till November 1st.

**Mount Vogel visit is weather permitted.

DAY 3: HOME OF THE BABY DRAGONS IN POSTOJNA CAVE AND PREDJAMA CASTLE / half day

Today we will take you to the home of baby dragons and knights. It sounds like a fairytale, right? Number one visited attraction in Slovenia is the Queen of the caves – Postojna cave*. It is a system of chambers, halls and passages that you enter by open train which adds to the experience of depths and adventure. Countless stalagmite and stalactite formations are lit well enough even to take pictures. You will hear about Slovenia’s most unusual creature that we are fond of and call a human fish. A short drive away there is one of a kind, the Renaissance-style Predjama castle which has a reputation for being the most hunted castle in Europe. It is nestled in the mouth of a cave and is set within a 123-meter-tall (404 feet) rock face. Let us walk you through the story of chateau’s famous resident knight Erazem Lueger.

Meals: breakfast

Note: If you need a transfer to the airport or want to continue with extension travel to neighbouring countries, let us know – we will handle everything for you.

Safe travels!

*On your request Postojna cave can be replaced with UNESCO protected Skocjan caves. The two caves are giving very different experience, Skocjan caves being more strenuous. You can also visit both of the caves in one day (additional charge). In this case, your day will be very active and you will not return back to Ljubljana before 6 pm. It is possible to do it throughout the year, no matter the season. About Skocjan caves: a UNESCO protected site that looks like something out of The Lord of the Rings. The real attraction here is the largest underground cavern in all of Europe. What steals the show from other caves are spectacular views from many footbridges overlooking underground canyon and the underground river flowing inside the cave.
