The bewildering variety of landscapes in Slovenia make this small country feel larger than it is and provide a stunning location to explore on foot or by bike. Discover jagged limestone peaks, high flower-filled meadows, romantic islands, thundering waterfalls and historic hilltop castles on your activity holiday in Slovenia.
Cut off from their neighbours by dramatic limestone peaks, life still moves at a slower pace in Slovenia. The half-timbered villages still celebrate a calendar of medieval festivals and in the meadows where the sun bleaches grass piled high in timber hayracks, you'll still hear the tinkle of cow bells.
Nowadays there's sophistication too at beautiful Lake Bled, put on the map by 19C travellers coming to bathe in its clear waters.
Walking in the Julian Alps from your base in either Bled, Bohinj Bistrika or Ribcev Laz, a choice of routes of differing walking levels is available to see the best of the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park.
Our 10 night holiday takes you from the turquoise waters of Lake Bled, nestled below Slovenia's jagged Julian Alps, along the Alpe Adria Trail, passing into Italy. Wind down through the mountains to the island of Grado on the Adriatic coast. On route pass through the historic towns of Venzone, Udine and Palmanova.
Our 7 night holiday starts at picture postcard Lake Bled in the Julian Alps, follows the emerald Soča River, takes you through the 'Tuscany' of Slovenia and across the mysterious world of the Karst to the medieval town of Piran on the Adriatic coast.
