DAY 6 - Choose your activity

The magic of this tour is that you really create your own itinerary. On this day, you will be able to choose between three different experiences. You can opt to leave the coast for the karst region and visit Postojna Cave, the most popular attraction in Slovenia. With its underground train ride, remarkable cave structures and stories of dragons, it makes for a perfect spot that the whole family will enjoy. We will also stop in Predjama Castle, an architectural marvel built into a rock cliff, located very close to Postojna. If you are interested in local traditions and food, you can join a vintage gourmet tour that includes a drive through the coastal countryside in vintage vans, a visit of olive groves and an olive oil press with tasting and traditional lunch. Your third option is to embark on a boat tour and get to experience the Slovenian coast from a completely different perspective.

Important:

The temperature in the cave is 10C, so make sure you are dressed properly.

An exciting way to get introduced to where our food comes from and experience a day in the life of a farmer. After checking in at your Ljubljana accommodation, you can choose a wine tasting for the parents and an escorted visit to the Museum of Illusions for children or you can enjoy a cooking class all together, learn how to prepare traditional Slovenian dishes and feast on the fruit of your labour.

Tailor made

In terms of natural diversity, Slovenia is the undisputed European champion and it gives us the utmost pleasure to share its sights, sounds and tastes with you and your family. 8 adventure-packed days will be spent enjoying fun activities at two spectacular Alpine lakes, exploring the countryside and towns of the Slovenian coast and its vibrant capital. But the best part of this holiday is that you can create your own itinerary day-by-day, adventure by awesome adventure.

Your holiday will begin in the stunning mountainous region of Slovenia, more precisely at Lake Bled, the country’s most famous landmark. In addition to seeing all the main attractions, you'll be able to choose between various destinations and activities in and around Bled. From cycling or horse-riding, to hiking through a magnificent gorge or paddle boarding on Lake Bled itself. And for a dose of adrenaline, there’s ziplining above a beautiful river valley and an adventure park overlooking Lake Bled.

From Bled we’ll take you to another fantastic glacial lake called Lake Bohinj, where more super fun activities await. Taking a cable car up to Mount Vogel will present you with jaw-dropping views of the Alps and a chance to walk down an educational trail high in the mountains. You can go kayaking down a crystal-clear alpine river, hiking in a lovely gorge or cycling through an amazing nearby valley. If you’ve never been canyoning, this is your perfect opportunity. It involves climbing, jumping, ziplining, and abseiling along a stream inside an ancient gorge. Whatever your preference, we’ve got you covered.

From high in the Alps to the Adriatic coast and the sunlit Karst. For the next leg of your adventure, we’ll take you to the vibrant seaside town of Portorož. The drive there is quick, but it feels like being teleported to a completely different country. You’ll be able to stroll through the streets of Piran, Slovenia’s prettiest coastal town, go on a boat ride, check out a fish farm, or relax in a mud spa. On a trip to the Slovenian Karst, you’ll explore the most incredible cave in the world and visit a medieval castle built within a rocky cliff. And when all your other senses will have been fully satisfied, a gourmet tour will give your taste buds an adventure of their own.

You’ll wrap up your family holiday with a trip to Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana. The choice of activities doesn’t end there. You’ll be able to experience what life is like on a Slovenian farm, learn to cook and taste the best Slovenian wines while your children enjoy themselves at the Museum of Illusions. If your energy levels permit, the last day can be spent on a bike tour of Ljubljana, a superb way of getting to know our green capital.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a single traveller, how can I book?

Don’t worry, just drop us a line in our inbox. We will do our best to try and find you some company, so if you are flexible in your travel dates, let us know as well. Do you want a private trip? No problem, we got you covered too.

Why is the accommodation not specified?

We are always looking for the perfect fit for you. We use a few different accommodation providers that fit our standards but they are subjected to availability, especially in the high season. We can also adjust the holiday, keeping in mind your preferences and budget and can always find a more suitable solution for your taste.

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 or Ljubljana airport. 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 difficult are the activities?

All the activities are appropriate for beginners. However, some activities require children to be above a certain age or height. Limitations: Canyoning: height more than 150 cm Kayaking: height more than 130 cm Zipline: minimum 6 years White water rafting: minimum 6 years

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. If you are visiting caves, please remember that the caves are cold in the summer, as the cave temperature is constant throughout the year.

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 off for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind and let us know upon booking.

How does the “choice of activity” work?

As there is so much to do in Slovenia, we wanted to give you the option of choosing exactly how you would like to spend your time here. Which is why we have compiled a list of popular activities in the areas of your visit and categorized them as extras. Therefore, the choice of which and how many you would like to experience is entirely up to you. You can book all of your chosen extras in advance. Your guide will confirm the bookings with you on the tour and make sure you are fully informed.

Will we have some time to ourselves?

As much as you’d like! We are well aware that some people love to have a packed holiday, full of activities, while others prefer some more alone and quiet time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! Please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!

Who will be our tour manager?

Our family holiday guides are professional and experienced guides who are also very good with children. They will look after the whole family, help you out with the itinerary, your activities and will also be a wealth of local information. If you want to join activities such as wine tasting, your guide will be happy to keep your children entertained and busy.

What sort of accommodation do you arrange?

The price published on our website includes 3* accommodation with the whole family staying in one room or suite. If you prefer to have separate rooms, let us know upon booking. The accommodation is placed centrally in areas that have restaurants, shops, cafes and other entertainment, so you are not stranded somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

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).

We have seen so much in the past week in Slovenia. Alpine wonders, the coastal part and not to forget the beautiful capital Ljubljana - Slovenia has it all it takes to be a perfect holiday destination. Traveling betwen places was so easy with such a great team and they entertained our children, they both loved Thea who spent most time with them. It felt good to have a bit more time to ourselves in the evenings and to enjoy the fantastic Slovene cuisine, or take a walk on the streets of Ljubljana at night. Truly unforgettable place and k think we are coming back soon.
