Travelling to the Slovenian coast with the family has never been this exciting. There are so many incredible things to see and do in this beautiful region that it’s almost impossible to cram them all into one amazing visit. Almost. The fantastic advantage of this holiday is that it allows you to customize your itinerary and get the most out of your experience. And what an experience it is!
Based in the modern seaside resort of Portorož, you will get the chance to choose among a list of various destinations and fun activities the Slovenian coast has to offer. Strolling around the streets of the incredibly picturesque town of Piran will give you a taste of culture amidst its unique Venetian architecture. Another day can be spent cycling down a super scenic seaside trail or fusing sport with education by kayaking/paddle boarding to a local fish farm steeped in tradition. While in the region, a trip to the Slovenian Karst will take you to the magical Postojna Cave and a legendary medieval castle perched within a giant cliff. These natural and manmade wonders are guaranteed to impress children and adults alike. Back at the coast, an option of joining a vintage gourmet tour for some authentic culinary delights awaits. And nothing wraps up a family holiday at the coast like a wonderful boat ride and a dip in the sea.
Start your holiday at the Slovenian coast. Get you and your family settled in the most popular town on the Slovenian Rivera, Portorož, with numerous shops, restaurants and activity options. After check in, head to nearby Piran, the most picturesque medieval town on a small peninsula and see all its main attractions, meander the small colourful streets and learn about its history and legends. Enjoy some free time with a stroll or a swim on the town’s beachfront and get used to the Mediterranean pace of life.
The Slovenian coast offers some nice cycling paths, which you can choose to enjoy for a few hours before lunch time or enjoy some downtime on the beach. You can opt to visit a nearby fish farm and the traditional salt flats, all located inside a nature reserve, on a guided paddleboard or kayaking tour if you wish to stay active. If you prefer to leave activities to the kids, you can enjoy a special spa in the salt pans, which uses sea water and natural mud for their treatments.
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.
The temperature in the cave is 10C, so make sure you are dressed properly.
Enjoy breakfast at your accommodation before departing Portorož.
