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.
