What to do in Slovenia?


Blessed with such natural splendour, it is not surprising that Slovenia is an extremely sporty nation. Possibilities for outdoor recreation are limitless, and our holiday packages include a wide variety of active and adventure holidays where you can experience that side of Slovenia to the fullest.

Thanks to its hilly and mountainous landscape, Slovenia is a hiker’s paradise. Walking holidays take you to the most picturesque parts of the country, including the unspoilt nature of Triglav National Park in Slovenia’s Julian Alps. Breathe in the fresh air, meet other travellers and discover the hidden gems of numerous awe-inspiring valleys, plateaus and pastures up in the highlands.

A faster and unique way of discovering Slovenia is by bike. Our exciting cycling holidays include easy family-style trips to adrenaline rides for professionals, all accompanied by exceptional views and a range of interesting locations.

The enormous network of pristine rivers and lakes offers a rich selection of water sports. From white-water rafting down the Soča and Sava Rivers, to kayaking in the capital or SUP holidays on the magical lakes Bled and Bohinj or the Adriatic Sea, the diversity of water sports is indeed amazing. For fishing enthusiasts, Slovenia’s rivers and lakes present a perfect opportunity to enjoy the wilderness while reeling in some amazing fish.

Slovenia also has an amazing subterranean world. The famous Postojna Cave is a true marvel of nature, as are other less known underground locations where you can go caving. Another fantastic experience to be had in the grand outdoors is canyoning. Steep gorges off the beaten path with emerald pools and hidden passages are waiting to be explored.

Back aboveground, adrenaline junkies can test their skills at numerous adventure parks with ziplining, climbing and jumping, all performed in the most breath-taking surroundings. There are even exciting yet safe activities such as bear watching, where you can come face-to-face with Slovenia’s gorgeous wildlife.

In wintertime, the mountains of Slovenia are transformed into a snowy wonderland. Uncrowded ski resorts set in the most amazing locations guarantee the best skiing for all levels and ages. Ski touring, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in fairy-tale surroundings promise unforgettable adventures, while après skiing activities in towns like Bled, Kranjska Gora and even the capital Ljubljana will keep you entertained throughout your winter holiday.

Whether you’re an avid foodie or not, Slovenia is undoubtedly one of the tastiest countries you’ll ever visit. It might not be as famous for its culinary specialties as Italy or France, but Slovenians place enormous emphasis on eating well and it shows. There are hundreds of local dishes which will satisfy even the most sophisticated palates. Restaurants, open markets and tourist farms are a huge part of Slovenian culture and offer exquisite delights. And nothing goes better with a scrumptious meal than the most prized beverage in Slovenia – wine. It’s a national hobby that produces some of the highest quality wines in the world. Wine tastings in Ljubljana and Bled will introduce you to the very best products Slovenian winemakers have in store.

Food restrictions:

Slovenian restaurants are modern culinary venues that follow all the necessary guidelines. Most menus offer excellent vegetarian and vegan options and warn guests of any coeliac restrictions. However, certain tourist farms and rural restaurants do not always offer vegan food, so do make sure to inquire before booking or ask your local guide.
