Just because you want to get down and dirty doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style. And Slovenia is just the place to do it. Known as a country of activity enthusiasts, there are dozens of nature and adventure activities at your fingertips. From braving the rapid straits of emerald Soča River and sliding down the longest zipline in Europe to exploring the bear country, deep in the forest of Kočevje, to hikes and stunning waterfalls, you will not be bored. Just relax and have fun (and don’t forget to scream - that means it's fun!) while we take care of your accommodation, transport and make sure your experience is absolutely smooth.
Your luxury active holiday starts in the beautiful capital, Ljubljana. Explore the city by bike and visit all the main highlights and some more secret parts in a fun and active way.
Head to Lake Bled, one of the most popular places in Slovenia and explore the lake on a paddleboard, giving you more time on the lake and as much time as you want on the island. Check in at your luxury glamping accommodation, a secret little garden not far from the lake. Your afternoon activity will be ziplining close to Bled over the Sava Dolinka Valley on the longest zipline in Europe. Finish your day by hiking up a small hill next to the lake for some of the most amazing views of the Bled area.
Enjoy a free morning to spend to your own liking - you can walk or cycle around the lake, swim in the summer, visit Bled Castle or Vintgar Gorge*, or just relax. In the afternoon, we will head out into a beautiful gorge for a canyoning adventure of hiking, jumping, sliding and abseiling down the stream.
Bring a swimsuit and a towel for canyoning.
Experience one of the most dramatic drives in Slovenia, over the stunning Vršič Pass surrounded by mountain views, which leads to the valley of the Soča River all the way to Bovec, the adrenaline capital of Slovenia. What better way to see the emerald beauty of the Soča River than on an exciting white water rafting trip down its stream? You can enjoy the relaxed and beautiful atmosphere of Bovec in the afternoon or hike to a nearby waterfall if you still have the energy.
Bring a swimsuit and a towel for white water rafting.
We will head south towards Tolmin and visit a spectacular gorge in the morning. Afterwards, we will drive to Postojna, one of the most famous places in the country, due to its magnificent cave system. A spectacular underground visit which includes an electric train is definitely a must-see in Slovenia. Your day will finish in the Dolenjska region, at Otočec Castle, where you will get to sleep in a real castle located on an island on the Krka River.
The temperature in the cave is 10C, so make sure you are dressed properly.
Since the castle grounds and the surrounding area are so stunning, we will give you a morning off, so you can enjoy the nearby parks and trails and take in this beautiful natural world. In the afternoon, your adventure continues deep in the Slovenian forests on a bear-watching experience. You will get to see the native brown bears almost face to face but from a safe distance of a lookout.
We will head to the very north of Slovenia, the scenic area of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the famously picturesque Logar Valley. Get ready for scenic drives, epic views and a bit of hiking. Spend the night at the heart of Logar Valley, at a peaceful eco-friendly retreat away from the crowds and spoil yourself at the wellness centre with some of the best views of the surrounding mountains.
