DETAILED ITINERARY

DAY 1: ARRIVAL TO BLED, SLOVENIA – tour starts

Arrival to Bled, an alpine resort in the north-west part of Slovenia. In the evening meet your Travel director at 6:30 pm at your hotel. Enjoy welcome dinner and get excited about adventure that awaits you. A travel portal Thrillist describes Bled as follows: “You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more picturesque setting than Bled… It’s picture perfect in every sense. The Julian Alps dominate the background, while in the foreground, a 17th-century Baroque church sits on a remote island, adrift in the middle of glacial lake. It’s the stuff of fairytales. With waterfalls, castles, and remote caves all within the area, it makes for a vivid and character-filled landscape.”

Meals:  welcome dinner

Overnight: Bled

DAY 2: BLED AND BOHINJ, ALPINE RESORTS

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. A stop at Shepherd’s museum is where you will learn all about life on the high slopes. Followed by cheese tasting which is a must for foodies. Enjoy some free time by the biggest Slovenian lake, Bohinj (lunch on own, swimming in summer time…) 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: breakfast, cheese tasting

Overnight: Bled

*Mount Vogel visit is weather permitted.

DAY 3: JULIAN ALPS AND SOCA VALLEY

Start your day with a lovely 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. Make sure to have your camera ready for the ride that follows; Scenic Vrsic mountain road** will take us over the highest paved mountain pass in Slovenia at 1.611 meters (5.285 feet) altitude. It has a historical value that goes back to the WWI. We are going to follow emerald Soca River with its narrow gorges and stop in Trenta to visit an interesting Alpine museum. At lunchtime we will arrive in Bovec, adrenaline capital of Slovenia, where you can join optional activities like white water rafting or kayaking on Soca River, canyoning or even skydiving – why not? If you prefer to have a laid-back afternoon and relax, you can also do it here. In the evening we will enjoy dinner in the local restaurant.

Meals: breakfast, dinner

Overnight: Bovec or Kobarid

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

**On Public bus tour Scenic Vrsic mountain road will be replaced by Predel mountain road

DAY 4: WAR AND WINE IN WESTERN SLOVENIA

Start your day by crossing Napoleon’s bridge and walk to the picturesque Kozjak waterfall caught in a stony amphitheater. It is going to be an easy morning hike that is 2,4 km (1,5 mile) long altogether. Visit of the WWI museum in Kobarid will give us an unbiased insight of the events that happened in one of the major battles in the history of mankind on hilly terrain. Museum was awarded the Council of Europe Museum Prize and since its opening in 1990, it was visited by many notable people like monarchs, presidents of states, church superiors etc. The afternoon is reserved for pleasure in Goriška Brda that are called Slovenian Tuscany. Lunch and wine tasting. Overnight at Slovenian coast.

Meals: breakfast, lunch with wine tasting
Overnight: Portoroz or Piran

DAY 5: VENETIAN LEGACY AT THE COAST AND MAGICAL CAVES

This day is all about magical and most visited places in Slovenia; white horses, baby dragons, hunted castles and knights… It sounds like a fairy tale, right? Coastal town of Piran is where Venetian Republic has left its legacy that one can feel in narrow winding streets, houses huddled close together, beautiful squares and churches. Enjoy some free time wandering around this well preserved medieval town and have coffee or gelato in one of the many cafes lined by the sea. Near Italian border we shortly stop at Lipica stud farm, home to almost 400 Lipizzaner horses, nourishing a tradition that goes back to the year of 1580. Free time for lunch in Postojna. 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
Overnight: Ljubljana

DAY 6: LJUBLJANA EXPERIENCE

You will see Ljubljana’s best features like Plecnik’s Triple bridge, baroque St. Nicholas Cathedral, Renaissance City hall and Art Nouveau street.
