Itinerary

Day 1 UK - Ljubljana

Day 2 Kranjska Gora

We're going to get to know our surroundings this morning, as we get together for a stroll around lovely Kranjska Gora. This Alpine resort, on the doorstep of Triglav National Park and close to both the Italian and Austrian borders, boasts magnificent scenery. On our way back to the hotel, we'll stop by the Liznjek homestead, a museum where we'll learn about traditional ways of life in the Upper Sava Valley. Meals included: B,D

Day 3 Julian Alps

Today, we'll spend the day in the great outdoors, enjoying the spectacular scenery of the Julian Alps and taking in the fresh mountain air. We'll drive through the Upper Sava Valley and over the Vrsic Mountain Pass, one of the highest roads in Slovenia. We'll stretch our legs at the summit, where staggering views will take your breath away.
Next, we'll descend into the horseshoe-shaped Trenta Valley and drive along the shores of the emerald-green Soca River. We'll enjoy lunch in the picturesque town of Bovec before heading towards the Predil Mountain Pass. Our route takes us by a number of fortifications and historical monuments including a bronze statue of a dying lion dedicated to fallen Austrian soldiers.

Day 4 Ljubljana

Slovenia's capital Ljubljana is our destination today, and its compact size makes it easy to explore on foot. With a Local Guide, we'll discover the city that was crowned the Green Capital of Europe in 2016, starting in the Old Town. Narrow cobbled streets, a castle-topped hill and the Ljubljana River running through its heart, make this a lovely place for a stroll. We'll also see the elegant Town Hall with its Venetian architectural influences, St Nikolai Cathedral and the bustling public market, which runs along the river.

Next, we head to Lake Bled, an expanse of blue-green water in which sits Slovenia's only island. We'll head to the island on a traditional wooden Pletna boat, and we'll visit the 12th century Bled Castle, which towers over the lake, offering further amazing views.
