Description

Of the many sights and experiences one can find in Slovenia, we’ve curated the very best into a selection that will turn your weeklong fling into a lifelong romance. From the picturesque half-island city of Novo mesto and the neighbouring Otočec Castle, famous for its exquisite weddings to the capital of Ljubljana with its cobbled streets and corner shops, your camera will be full - but that’s just the start.

We will not miss the magic of world-famous Postojna Cave with its rock-set castle, nor the seaside cities of Portorož and Piran, where you can often see Slovenia’s who’s who, strolling leisurely on the dreamy beaches. A trip to Slovenia has to include a stop at fairy-tale Lake Bled, the most famous and most popular attraction.

And to top it all off, we will explore the Goriška Brda wine region, “Slovenia’s Tuscany”, where you will be able to open dusted bottles and taste wines, fit for true connoisseurs.

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 Kranjska Gora. 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.

What should I wear?

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.

Some of our family members have food restrictions. Are there restaurants for them?

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 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?

Yes! Our holidays are designed to give you some free time every day to relax and spend it the way you want to. It is your holiday after all! For any advice and suggestions you can always turn to your tour leader or our back office, who will be more than happy to help you out.

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).
