Slovenia

Oh, Slovenia. Go there once and you'll never be the same. From watching the sunrise at Lake Bled to wine tasting in Goriška Brda, you're spoilt for choice with bucket list experiences. You'd better get started!

Watch the sunrise at Lake Bled

 

This really goes without saying. There's not much that could make Lake Bled better than it already is, but seeing the sun rise across the Julian Alps is something very special. Head up to Mala Osojnica for the iconic view across the mystical lake, and take snacks! 

 

slovenia-Vintgar-gorge-woman-backpack

Visit Vintgar Gorge 

 

With tumbling emerald and turquoise water, Vintgar Gorge is the perfect place to visit alongside Lake Bled. Wander along the wooden bridges, hearing the rush of water below. 

 

slovenia-ljubljana-triple-bridge-river-pink-church

Go paddleboarding in Ljubljana

 

Ljubljana is known for its beautiful bridges over the Ljubljanica river, so what better way to see them than from the water? Join a daily paddleboarding tour to see the Triple Bridge, Butchers' Bridge, and all the city's sights from a unique angle. 

 

slovenia-bled-cream-cake-background-lake

Try Bled cream cake, Lake Bled

 

When we say Bled cream cake, we really mean it. This perfect pastry concoction is a protected dish that can only be served in Bled itself. And, with layers of vanilla cream, custard and soft, powdered pastry, it's worth making the trip there just for that...

 

slovenia-lak- bohinj-kayak

Kayak on Lake Bohinj 

 

We've all heard of Lake Bled, but have you heard of Lake Bohinj? Nestled in the Triglav National Park, this sister lake is just as beautiful and even more serene. Kayak across its calm surface, before taking the cable car up the mountain for perfect panoramas. 

 

slovenia-predjama-castle-woman-staring

Visit Predjama Castle 

 

Predjama Castle is not something you'll see very often: a 12th century castle built directly into the cliff. Not enough for you? Check out the network of secret tunnels and caves hidden behind the castle, used in medieval times. 

 

slovenia-lake-bled-rowing-boat-island-church

Row to the island and ring the church bell, Lake Bled 

 

Lake Bled is iconic. A perfect lake nestled in the Julian Alps, with a small island rising in the centre. Rent a rowing boat and head out to the island's church, the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary. Inside, ring the church bell, as it makes your wishes come true! 

 

slovenia-skocjan-caves

Slip into the Škocjan Caves

 

Dive into the depths of the Škocjan Caves, a subterranean complex with the largest underground gorge in Europe. Marvel at the rapids, waterfalls and cave structures along the 6km walkway, or glide along the Reka River beneath. 

 

slovenia-Gorishka-brda-wineyards-panoramic

Go wine-tasting in Goriška Brda

 

Goriška Brda has been nicknamed 'Slovenia's Tuscany', producing some of the country's finest wine. Head to Brda to see the oldest grapevine in the world, before sampling some of the delicious local produce. 

 

slovenia-triglav-national-park-Zajavornik-pasture-winter-snow-stars-night

Stargaze in Triglav National Park 

 

Have you ever dreamt of sleeping beneath the stars? Stay in one of Triglav's mountain huts for an indescribable experience. With stunning surroundings during the day and the sky alive at night, you'll never want to leave.
