Tour highlights

Ljubljana

Ljubljana, the charming capital of Slovenia is one of its top 3 attractions, and it is a perfect base to enjoy any day trips in Slovenia. Explore its medieval old town and the old Roman ruins, admire the river banks and bridges of the Ljubljanica river, and take the funicular up to Ljubljana castle for great views of the city and the Alps. Relax in Tivoli park and in the numerous restaurants and cafés where people of all ages meet. Marvel in the architectural beauties, marked by influences of neighbouring Italian and Viennese styles of the previous centuries.

Lake Bled

A trip to Bled, one of Slovenia's top attractions, must be a part of any visit to Slovenia. We visit Lake Bled, the/a world-famous Alpine lake renowned for a medieval castle perched on a cliff above the lake. We visit the museum at Bled castle and enjoy the bird’s eye view of the lake and its island with the Church of the Assumption.

We take a traditional pletna boat to Bled island. Time permitting, we go for a short stroll along the lake or have a coffee and “kremšnita” (vanilla cream cake, the most famous dessert in Slovenia)

Postojna cave & Predjama castle

This day trip stirs your imagination with millions of years of natural history, and stories of knights and dragons. Join numerous visitors that have marvelled at the beauty of Postojna cave, an indisputable tourist highlight of Slovenia, on a 5 kilometre visit that includes an exciting underground train ride. Postojna cave is also a home to a peculiar animal of many names, a cave salamander. In Slovene, we call it 'the human fish', otherwise known as an olm or a proteus. Some like to call it a baby dragon.

We also take you to the nearby Predjama, which boasts a castle built into a rock cliff, and share the legends that surround it.

Bohinj lake

The glacial lake Bohinj is considered the most beautiful place in Slovenia. It is the country’s centre of eco tourism and outdoor adventures.

It is the largest and most beautiful Alpine lake in Slovenia. Being part of the Triglav national park, Bohinj will impress you with its natural beauty and its serene peacefulness and you will surely vow to return.

Bled Vintgar gorge

Vintgar gorge is deeply carved into the limestone by the Radovna river, which you can follow on a 1.6 km path full of bridges and galleries that show you the truly remarkable landscape of the gorge. The river accompanies you in rapids and pools of amazing colour and finally leaves the gorge at Šum waterfall which is also the end of the trail. (Available only between April and October)

Maribor - European capital of culture 2012

Maribor is a cosmopolitan city on the banks of the river Drava, full of tourist attractions. Although you can easily visit it as a day trip from Ljubljana, Maribor has become a popular city break or a weekend break destination. A visit to Maribor must be part of every tour to Slovenia.

Maribor is embraced by wine-growing hills on all sides. Its Historic town centre is marked by the Austrian influence, and we will admire the lively and colourful squares - Grajski trg (Castle square), Slomškov trg (Slomšek square) and Glavni trg (Main square), and in Lent, the old river port. It is possible to cover all these attractions on a walking tour of Maribor.

The pinnacle of Maribor culture has been the title of the European Capital of Culture in 2012.

Ptuj - the oldest slovenian town

The oldest and quite possibly the prettiest city in Slovenia is built upon huge wine cellars on the banks of the river Drava. Lying by the Drava river, Ptuj was an important station on the prehistoric Baltic – Mediterranean amber trading route. Historically, it is one of the most important places in the country, and its 2000-year history can be felt as you walk through the town. You will admire the elegant city squares and townhouses, rich in architectural details and incorporated archaeological pieces. A view from the castle above the city is simply breath-taking.

Goriška brda region

Forget Provence and Tuscany; Slovenia’s region of Goriška Brda is Europe’s next hidden gem, waiting to be explored.

This is a land of gently rolling hills, covered with orchards and vineyards and dotted with small, forgotten villages.The gentle climate assures ideal growing conditions for grapes and Mediterranean fruits: cherries, peaches and apricots.

There is no mass production here, but the wine growers of Goriška Brda are world famous for the quality of their wine, and wine connoisseurs will recognise many of the names as we travel through Goriška Brda.

Soča river valley

The Soča river valley is an enchantingly scenic part of Slovenia and even though it is located on the other side of the Julian Alps it can be easily reached in a day trip from Ljubljana.

The Soča river has one of the most amazing colours you will ever see and you can follow its lively rapids from the source to the spectacular carved gorges, all the way down to where it slows down and becomes deeper and more secretive. The river is not the only spectacular sight in the valley since you are accompanied by eminent mountain peaks and wondrous waterfalls for most of the way. The whole area is also pervaded by memories of the battles that were fought in this valley during WWI, which can be traced in the war cemeteries and memorials.

Otočec

Otočec castle is located on a small island embraced by the Krka river, connected to the shores by wooden bridges. The beautiful green island is crisscrossed with lovely pathways where you can take a walk along the river, and in it see the reflection of the surrounding trees.
