Description

The surreal beauty of the Slovenian Alps offers unforgettable adventures suitable for all ages. This winter wonderland is packed with places to see and snow activities to engage in, so we’ve compiled a list of options for you to get the very most out of your holiday. Begin your holiday with night sledding, a wonderful experience for youngsters and adults alike, just a short drive from Ljubljana. After you get your first dose of winter fun, continue to Lake Bled, the symbol of Slovenia’s natural splendour, and a perfect base for wintertime exploration of the surrounding area. 

There is nothing like the sound of snow crunching under your boots and some of the snowy Alpine peaks are welcoming even in the winter time, so get ready for a true winter fairy-tale on an easy-grade hike in the beautiful Julian Alps.  To continue your stay in true Alpine spirit: The early bird catches the view. Getting out of bed 30 minutes before sunrise to hike up a nearby hill is definitely worth it. It involves an undemanding ascent which opens up breath-taking views of Lake Bled and the majestic mountains beyond.

Then it’s time for some more snowy fun, which includes a deeply enrooted Slovenian tradition: cross-country skiing. And there’s no better place to venture into the wilderness than Pokljuka, a scenic plateau, or the gorgeous Tamar Valley. Both locations are stunning, especially in winter, and are crisscrossed with excellent cross-country ski trails of varying difficulty levels. Friendly and helpful local guides will show you exactly how it’s done and recommend the best trail for you. 

Another amazing option is to explore this pristine countryside off the beaten track. That’s why we’re taking you snowshoeing. It’s an ancient method used by the locals of old to travel great distances across snow-covered terrain. You’ll get the chance to try out this technique called “flotation” as you wander through the forests and meadows in the heart of the Julian Alps. If you think the paths are too simple, don’t worry, our guides are sure to suggest more demanding routes, depending on your needs and capabilities. Besides snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, you’ll also be able to try the very unique way of travelling on snow: dog sledding.

Frequently Asked Questions

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. 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 at 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).
