Tailor made

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 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 breath-taking mountain pass with views beyond compare. But this type of incredible natural splendour 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 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.

Adventure Slovenia like never before - experience the unique activities pumped with adrenaline, natural beauties and the best of times.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a single traveller, how can I book?

Don’t worry, just drop us a line in our inbox. We will do our best to try and find you some company, so if you are flexible in your travel dates, let us know as well. Do you want a private trip? No problem, we got you covered too.

Why is the accommodation not specified?

We are always looking for the perfect fit for you. We use a few different accommodation providers that fit our standards but they are subjected to availability, especially in the high season. We can also adjust the holiday, keeping in mind your preferences and budget and can always find a more suitable solution for your taste.

Where is the pickup and which transfers are included?

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.

Where do I eat when the food is not included?

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.

How fit do I need to be?

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.

I have never tried these activities. Is that a problem?

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.

What should I wear? Do I have to bring anything with me?

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.

I have food restrictions. Are there restaurants for me?

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.

Will I have some time to myself?

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!

What is the tourist tax that is not included in the price?

A tourist and promotion tax is a fee that every visitor has to pay for each overnight stay all over Slovenia. It consists of two parts: each municipality charges a tourist tax fee, which goes towards financing and maintenance of tourist facilities in the area, and the Slovenian Tourist Board charges a promotion tax, which is used to promote Slovenia. Depending on the municipality, the tax rates vary - from 1.5€ in some locations to 3.13€ in Ljubljana or Bled (per person, per night).
