ŠKOCJAN CAVES - SOCERB CASTLE - PIRAN
The Slovenian coast is small but endearingly charming. You will enjoy the day visiting the highlights of the Slovenian coast and its hinterland.
From Ljubljana we will drive to the Škocjan Caves, a Unesco cultural heritage site, and a majestic underground river canyon, and take you to a world of fantasy. The extraordinary volume of the underground canyon distinguishes Škocjan Caves from other caves and places and is one of the most famous underground sights in the world. After visiting the caves, we will enjoy a scenic drive towards the Slovenian coast with a stop at Socerb Castle, from where we will have a breathtaking view of the Slovenian coast and the Gulf of Trieste.
Arriving in Piran, you will discover the romantic and picturesque coastal town. Piran is a tourist highlight on the Slovenian coast, strongly influenced by the old Venetian Republic.
LJUBLJANA - BIZELJSKO - PTUJ
Bizeljsko is one of the many wine regions of Slovenia, known mainly for its sparkling wines.
However, other grape varieties also thrive in this part of the country, which has one of the friendliest climates. Some of the wineries hide another ethnological jewel: the Repnice cellars, whose centuries-old tradition has been revived in recent decades.
Ptuj is a picturesque and charming town in northeastern Slovenia. It is located on the banks of the Drava River in Slovenia. The city has a rich history that is reflected in its medieval architecture, including the imposing Ptuj Castle and the Ptuj City Tower. Visitors can also explore the city's museums, including the Ptuj Regional Museum and the Ormož Castle Museum. In addition, the annual Kurentovanje Festival with its colorful costumes, traditional music, and wine tastings is a popular event in Ptuj that attracts visitors from all over the world.
MARIBOR - ŽIČE - CELJE
A visit to Maribor should not be missing on any trip to Slovenia. Maribor is a cosmopolitan city on the banks of the Drava River with many tourist attractions. It is the second-largest city in the country and the largest in the Styria region. The historic city center is marked by Austrian influence, and we will admire the lively and colorful squares and the old river port during Lent. One of the main tourist attractions of Maribor is the Old Vine, the Guinness Book-certified oldest grapevine in the world. We can enjoy a wine tasting at this magical location.
From Maribor, we drive to the silent valley of St. John the Baptist to admire the splendor of the monastery or Charterhouse of Žiče. After this spiritual wonder we will drive to the city of Celje, enjoy dinner, and have a night walk through the charming streets of the city center.
The perfect mix of history, culture, and cuisine, all in one day.
ALPINE LAKES - BLED, BOHINJ
We will head northwards from eastern Slovenia, leaving the hills behind and heading into the mountains. The breathtaking Alpine valleys of Slovenia are not to be missed. Our first destination is the enchanting Lake Bled, where you can enjoy a ride on a Pletna rowboat to the island of Bled, visit the magnificent Bled Castle, take a walk through the impressive Vintgar Gorge, and discover the tranquil Lake Bohinj in the Triglav National Park.
We will end the day at Kranjska Gora, and before night take a walk to Jasna lake.
Overnight: Kranjska Gora
From Kranjska Gora, you will continue to the Soča Valley. After driving over the Vršič, the highest mountain pass in Slovenia, you will arrive in Trenta and start exploring the Soča Valley.
The Soča River has one of the most stunning colors you'll ever see, and you can follow its vivid rapids from the source to the spectacular carved gorges, all the way down where it slows down and gets deeper and more mysterious. The river is not the only spectacular sight in the valley, because most of the way you will be accompanied by outstanding mountain peaks and wonderful waterfalls. The whole area is also steeped in the memories of the battles of the First World War, which were fought in this valley and can be seen in the war cemeteries and monuments. We end the day in Goriška Brda, an ideal place for an overnight stay in a villa or on a local wine farm.
Overnight: Goriška Brda
GORIŠKA BRDA - THE TUSCANY OF SLOVENIA
The Slovenian region of Goriška Brda is the next hidden gem of Europe waiting to be discovered. It is a land of rolling hills, covered with orchards and vineyards and dotted with small, forgotten villages. Did we mention the excellent wine? We will visit traditional and modern wineries, learn about the historical and cultural heritage and taste excellent local wine.
Overnight: Goriška Brda
From the south coast, we drive to the northern part of the coast and further to the region known as the cradle of UNESCO heritage in Slovenia - Idrija
In the Idrija region you can admire the Klavže, a river engineering phenomenon called "Slovenia's pyramids", look into the bottomless Wild Lake and walk along the shortest river in Slovenia, visit Idrija Castle and its interesting museum, and descend into the depths of the disused mercury mine, which has been transformed into a world-class attraction under the protection of UNESCO.
POSTOJNA CAVE - PREDJAMA CASTLE
The last jewel of your tour is Predjama Castle and Postojna Cave - one of the most famous caves in the world. It is also the #1 tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the largest karst monuments in the world.
What makes Postojna Cave a must-see attraction in Slovenia? A unique and adventurous ride on a special train. It is one of the most diverse cave systems in the world, with 21 km of corridors, galleries and magnificent halls that offer an unparalleled experience of the underground world and a great variety of subterranean animals - including the world-famous human fish (Proteus anguinus).
