Description

Travelling around Slovenia in a campervan is a fantastic way of discovering the country’s wonderful landmarks and engaging in exciting activities while completely in control of your itinerary. We have compiled a list of the country’s main attractions for you to choose from to get the very most of your Slovenian holiday experience. Each day can be packed to the brim with stuff to do, depending entirely on your mood and interests. From cultural tourism and family-oriented activities, to blood-rushing adrenaline rides and everything in between. Although there are simply too many optional extras available for you to try, don’t worry, we offer the possibility of extending your holiday for a day or two so that you can check your favourites off the list.   

Wherever you go, short distances and light traffic on well-maintained roads make driving in Slovenia easy and enjoyable. But don’t be fooled by its small size, Slovenia is among the most diverse places on Earth and offers an incredible array of must-visit destinations. Staying in safe, clean and conveniently located camps will place you in the heart of the action.

You’ll set out on your campervanning adventure from the international airport, which is just a stone’s throw away from Ljubljana, Europe’s greenest capital. Ljubljana offers amazing sightseeing, excellent gastronomy and outdoor recreation. Heading up to the Alpine region, you’ll visit world famous Lake Bled and explore the natural and cultural wonders of the area. Deep in the unspoilt embrace of Triglav National Park, you’ll set up camp in Bohinj and the scenic Soča Valley, where hiking, cycling, rafting, ziplining, rock climbing, canyoning and much, much more can be enjoyed in this insanely picturesque part of Slovenia.   

The last leg of your journey will take you through some more beautiful valleys, gorges and valleys, as you make your way across Slovenia’s enchanting Karst region towards the coast. The Mediterranean climate and pretty seaside towns, including charming Piran and lively Portorož and their surrounding treasures, will present you with a completely different side to Slovenia. Driving back to Ljubljana, you shouldn’t miss out on the spellbinding Postojna Cave and the medieval phenomenon of Predjama Castle.
