Your itinerary

​After flying to Ljubljana we’ll transfer you to Bled in Slovenia. Your hotel boasts an ideal setting just a short walk from the shores of Lake Bled. After time to settle into your room, get to know your travelling companions over a welcome drink before dinner this evening.​

​Lake Bled is beautiful, boasting crystal-clear water and a dramatic backdrop of the Julian Alps. We will take in this spectacular scenery from on board a traditional wooden vessel known as a Pletna boat on an included cruise. The rest of the day can be spent at leisure.

We're going to discover Slovenia's capital, Ljubljana, on our excursion today. This compact city, with a hilltop castle towering above it, boasts a rich culture and fascinating architecture. We'll get into the Christmas spirit as we admire the colourful lights of the lovely Christmas market laid out along the Ljubljanica River. As you browse the stalls, soak up the festive atmosphere and perhaps pick up some unique souvenirs. Later, we'll get another chance to admire the beauty of Lake Bled on a torch-lit walk before we head back to the hotel for dinner.​

The Postojna Caves are one of Slovenia's most famous and interesting attractions, and we'll get to see them today. These subterranean caverns have been carved over thousands of years by the Pivka River and consist of fantastic sculpted galleries, chambers and halls featuring incredible stalactites and stalagmites. Our trip today also includes a mini-train journey. Back at the hotel, we'll enjoy a special Christmas Eve dinner accompanied by a performance of traditional Zither music. If you like you can opt to head into Bled to attend Midnight Mass. ​

​A scenic carriage ride is a great way to start Christmas Day, and we'll enjoy this before a festive Christmas lunch at our hotel. Later we're going to visit Brezje, where the Basilica of St Vid houses a painting of Maria, one of Christ's helpers. Our day comes to an end as we watch a performance of the local 'Legend of the Sunken Bell' by the edge of the lake, before enjoying dinner back at our hotel.

​Today is free for you to spend just as you wish. If you want to see more of Slovenia, you can come with us to the elegant and sophisticated walled town of Piran on an optional excursion. Set on the Adriatic Coast, its Venetian Gothic architecture and winding alleyways are delightful to discover.

​Bohinj is Slovenia's largest permanent lake, set amidst the wintry scenery of the Julian Alps. We'll head here today with a Local Guide, admiring its crystal-clear waters before visiting Mount Vogel, where we'll enjoy a thrilling cable-car ride to the top. With the rest of the day at leisure, there's plenty of time to take in views of beautiful Lake Bled one last time. Later we'll head to a nearby restaurant for a farewell dinner of local specialities.

​Today we'll transfer to the airport in Ljubljana for our flight back to the UK​.
