Itinerary

Day 1Arrival to Lake Bled

The Slovenia 8 day itinerary of Western Slovenia will start in Bled, one of the most beautiful Alpine resorts in Europe. Resting in the foothills of the Julian Alps and set along the glacial Lake Bled, it is among the most famous attractions in Slovenia. Depending on your arrival, you’ll have the entire day to yourself, so you can take in the magnificent views, stroll around and get a feel for the place. Make sure to also get some rest for all of the adventures that lay ahead.

Overnight stay in Bled.

Day 2Lakes Bled & Bohinj and Triglav National Park

After a hearty breakfast, we will experience the best that Bled has to offer. We will take a tour of the Bled Castle, and go for a relaxing ride with the traditional Pletna boat to Bled Island. For a bit of healthy exercise, we will hike along the stunning natural attraction of Vintgar Gorge. We will also visit the less crowded but just as beautiful Lake Bohinj located in the heart of Triglav National Park. You can also take a cable car to Vogel Mountain, rising above the lake and offering some of the best views in the country, before returning back to Bled.

Overnight stay in Bled.

Day 3Drive over the Vršič Pass to Soča River Valley

After a good night’s sleep, we will drive to the alpine resort Kranjska Gora where we will stop and marvel at the beautiful Jasna Lake. Our journey continues up the spectacular road leading over the Vršič Pass where we will take numerous photo stops to capture attractions like the stone face of the “Pagan Girl” and the wooden Russian Chapel. On the other side of the mountain, we will arrive at the emerald Soča River Valley and admire the great Soča Gorge. In the afternoon you can enjoy some free time in Bovec, relax and get ready for the next day.

Overnight stay in Bovec.

Day 4WWI heritage down the Soča Valley

In the morning a short bus ride will take us to the mountain town Kobarid, surrounded by the mighty peaks of the Julian Alps. The area of Kobarid is also famous for its WWI history, which you will get to know more about after a visit to the famous Kobarid museum. Another highlight on our itinerary will be the most beautiful entry point into the Triglav National Park, the Tolmin Gorge. You can choose to spend the rest of the day by going on an optional local wine tasting tour in Goriška Brda or settle in early at our accommodation and explore the land of the thousand hills on your own.

Day 5 From Karst to Mediterranean

Our first destination of the day will be the beautiful old town Štanjel. It is one of the oldest settlements in Karst and a paradise for all the romantics with spots like the Ferrari Garden, known as one of the most desirable wedding venues in Slovenia. When Cupid will let go of us, our bus will take us to Škocjan, where we will dive deep into the astonishing Škocjan caves, listed on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites, where we will explore the biggest underground canyon in the world. After an eventful day, our group will depart for the seaside where you’ll have some free time to feel the atmosphere of the dreamy Adriatic coast.

Make sure to put on some sunscreen and grab your sunglasses when visiting the sunny and warm Slovenian Coast. The famous old town Piran will charm you with its well-preserved ancient town walls and the narrow streets with countless stories to tell. Prepare to be amazed when visiting the Sečovlje salt pans, which are one of the last remaining salt pans in the Mediterranean that still maintain the 700-year-old tradition of producing salt by hand. In the evening you can catch a romantic sunset on the beach or try some fresh seafood in one of the many restaurants on the coast.

Don’t believe a fearsome dragon was living in the Karst underworld?

If you are brave enough, step into the fairytale world of knights at Predjama Castle, which is the largest cave castle in the world, before we depart to the capital city Ljubljana. There we will explore the city’s main sights and amazing architecture on a walking tour through the old town.
