Spoil your taste buds on this 3-day city break with charming Ljubljana as your base. Focused on traditional food and wine, this holiday offers a great combination of gourmet delights and sightseeing, as you get to tick of all the main attractions of Slovenia.
Your holiday kicks off in Ljubljana, the capital hard to pronounce and even harder to leave with its enchanting vibes on the lively river banks, great restaurants and cafes. Between a food tour and a cooking class, we will make you a culinary expert on your very first day before taking you to visit the most popular places in Slovenia, like Lake Bled and Postojna Cave. To add to the excitement and round up a perfect culinary and sightseeing adventure, we will stop by Lake Bohinj, Predjama Castle and Vipava Valley for more rustic experiences, such as cheese tasting at a local cheesemaker and wine tasting at a family-run winery.
All this and so much more makes this holiday a perfect getaway for people who love local delicacies and traditions and are after a great overview of what Slovenia has to offer in a fairly short amount of time.
Meet Ljubljana, a cosy, relaxed capital that will charm you straight away! Spend your day exploring the city’s main sights and attractions on a walking food tour through the old town, all the while stopping for delicious tastes of rich Slovenian traditional cuisine. Enjoy a leisurely boat ride on Ljubljanica River, where you will be able to see why this is considered one of the greenest capitals in Europe. Try your own cooking skill as you tackle traditional Slovenian recipes by yourself under local guidance at a cooking class or just help out enough to feel very much accomplished when you are trying out the delicacies that came from under your own two hands.
The Slovenian Alps are something everyone raves about. We will head out early in the morning to the most famous attraction in Slovenia - Lake Bled and enjoy a morning boat ride to the picturesque island in the middle. The cafe on the island specialised in the most traditional Slovenian pastry - potica, which you will get to try and learn more about. The afternoon will be reserved for gorgeous Lake Bohinj, famous for its cow cheese, and we will make sure you get to try some!
Another day, another must-see! We are off to Postojna Cave, the queen of caves, where a small electric train will take you underground for a unique experience. The dripstones and the halls of this cave are so spectacular that any description fails to do them justice. A short drive away from Postojna, we will pass by Predjama Castle as well, a unique structure with mysterious stories and a wonderful photo-stop. We will feast on a traditional lunch in Vipava, a valley famous for its wine making traditions and stop at a local winemaker’s to taste some of those fine wines.
The temperature in the cave is 10C, so make sure you are dressed properly.
