When it comes to outdoor activities, Slovenia is a land of limitless possibilities and none is as diverse and picturesque as the mountainous region of the Julian Alps. Everywhere you turn, there’s a scenic valley to hike through, a majestic mountain to climb, a cave to explore, or a crystal-clear river to raft down.

On this 8-day Slovenia adventure tour of our Alpine fairy-tale, you will receive an unforgettable dose of sport, nature, and culture – the main three ingredients of an active holiday.

Before entering the magnificent Triglav National Park, your adventure in Slovenia will already be well on its way. Located on the outskirts of this mountainous wonderland is Lake Bled, the symbol of Slovenia’s natural and cultural richness.

Strolling around the lake, paddle boarding on its surface, and hiking up a nearby hill will give you a tiny taste of what’s to come. Even staying in Bled’s immediate area for some canyoning down underground streams and kayaking on the impressive Sava River is only the tip of the iceberg of thrills that lay ahead.

Venturing deep into the wilderness of one of the oldest national parks in Europe, we will take you high up a breathtaking mountain pass with views beyond compare. But this type of incredible natural splendor isn’t meant to be observed from afar. Descending back to the valley, it’s time to hike along the emerald jewel called the Soča River, explore the deep ravines of the Soča Gorge, and experience these hidden gems up-close.

After ziplining on top of a mountain and checking in at Bovec, Slovenia’s adrenaline capital, the rapids of the Soča River await. Whitewater rafting accompanied by insanely perfect countryside is definitely the way to travel. From the watery fun of below to a drive up the highest mountain road in Slovenia, the Mangart Saddle. So saddle up and make sure your cameras and phones are fully charged for the flood of incoming photo ops.

An amazing waterfall and a gorgeous gorge later, you will be back in civilization and ready to hit the streets of vibrant Ljubljana. When in town, a food tour is highly recommended to get a proper taste of the local cuisine and recharge your batteries for the cave exploring ahead. Yup, next on the menu is caving in some of the less-known caves of Slovenia. And if these caves just happen to be in close proximity to bear country, why shouldn’t you be in even closer proximity to this striking wild animal? Joining a bear-watching safari in the wilderness makes for a great afternoon trip.

On the final leg of your adventurous journey, we will take you to another very attractive part of the country and go for some black water kayaking in an abandoned mine. After a hearty miner’s lunch and a visit to Logar Valley, probably Slovenia’s most stunning valley, it’s back to the capital. And to end your travels in the same active spirit you started them in, a relaxing bike tour of Ljubljana is the best way of getting to experience the sights and sounds of the greenest capital in the world.

Experience an adventure in Slovenia like never before — enjoy the unique activities pumped with adrenaline, natural beauties, and the best of times.

Things to know

The included pickup and drop-off at the end of the holiday in the price published on our website is in Ljubljana. For any changes, please notify us upon booking. The included transfers are all the transfers between places and/or activities specified in the itinerary.

Both our back office team and our guides know where to go. We can give you recommendations or even pre-book some places for you. You can be adventurous and find places on your own. Either way, let us know if you would like any sort of help.

Our activities included in the tour are appropriate both for absolute first-timers to people with experience. For most of the activities included in the itinerary, you need to be moderately fit, meaning that you are able to hike up a slope for about 30 minutes and know how to swim for the water activities. In case you are unsure about any of the activities, feel free to ask us anything and we will help you out.

Not at all. We make sure that beginners and first-timers feel comfortable and safe. Our experienced guides and partners will make sure you understand what you need to do and will always make sure you have all the information you need, the right gear and the right word of encouragement.

It is important to dress for the season. Slovenia has all 4 seasons, so please check the weather forecast before the day trip regarding temperatures and rainfall. When you are close to the Alps, the weather can change fairly quickly, so your best bet is to always bring an extra layer. We recommend shoes you will be comfortable in.

It really depends on the level of your restriction. Vegetarian options are fairly easy to find in Slovenia, but vegan dishes, on the other hand, are extremely hard to come by in rural areas of the country and in smaller towns. Please note, that the places where we stop off for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind.

If you want to, sure! We are well aware that some people love to stay in groups while others prefer some more alone time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! As long as you respect the group timings and locations designated by your guide, please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!
