Day 01 Hello, Slovenia
A private transfer will greet you off your flight, ready to drive you to your rustic glamping tents on the banks of Lake Bled. You’ll find this secluded retreat surrounded by lush forestland, with hot tubs to complete the scene. Meet your fellow travellers and guide, before heading out together to explore the historical town of Bled, enjoying your first glass of wine together overlooking the vast landscape. Tonight, sink into the peaceful lull of the wilderness, falling asleep beneath the stars.
Day 02 Canyon through the Bohinj Valley
Wake up to a breakfast basket sitting on the doorstep of your wooden hut, before cutting a path to Lake Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest lake. Here, you’ll canyon through the Bohinj Valley, swimming, climbing and abseiling through a hidden network of caves and mountain streams. Enjoy lunch with your fellow travellers before following a beautiful hiking route through the valley, past turquoise lakes and rugged hills. As evening falls, enjoy a drink by the lake and take your pick of the restaurants at your disposal.
Day 03 Paddle-boarding on the serene Lake Bled
With a turreted church peeking out from its central island and the vast mountainscape unfolding around you, Lake Bled is a region of old-world beauty – and a fantastic location for some stand-up paddle boarding. Aim for the island where you’ll climb 99 steps to see the ancient church and clock tower (legend has it if you ring the bell three times, you’ll be granted one wish). After lunch, you’ll return to Ljubljana, where you’ll enjoy a course at three different restaurants, before winding down to the city’s vibrant riverfront bars.
Day 04 A morning in Ljubljana
Your last morning in Ljubljana is yours to spend as you please. Wander through the city’s cobbled streets, with plenty of piazza cafes to draw your attention. The Old Town is particularly lovely, and the hilltop castle is also worthy of a visit. If you feel like exploring the Balkans further, we recommend extending your trip with our popular Croatian adventure, which will see you journey from Split to Dubrovnik in five days.

What Flashpackers say
"Great group! Felt so lucky to have a group of fun, sociable, like minded 30-45yr olds from professional jobs all craving some fun & de-stress adventuring! Stunning scenery & accommodation with a very fun itinerary of SUPing, canyoning & exploring an incredible country. We laughed so much & made some fantastic memories! "
"My first Flash Pack experience in Slovenia was amazing. I have never been on a group tour before but this was a fantastic experience with a great group of people."
"Without a doubt the best holiday I’ve ever been on. I had so many reservations and concerns going in, but I need not have worried - every detail is taken care of so you can fully enjoy your holiday. I roomed with a lady from another country and from going out there nervous as hell about it, we turned into absolute besties!"
"Fabulous travel company!! Ideal for anyone in their 30s and 40s. I have been on two Flash Pack trips so far, and have two more planned for the coming year! Fantastic locations, lovely hotels, phenomenal guides and experts, amazing adventures, and always a wonderful way to meet new people. "
Fly into and out of Ljubljana International Airport (LJU).
We recommend booking a flight that lands in Ljubljana before 4:30pm on day 1 of your adventure. You’re welcome to book your departing flight at any time on day 4, but we suggest an afternoon flight so that you can make the most of one last morning in Ljubljana.
Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control – but we’ll always do our best to ensure it has little impact on your experience. From time to time, we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh and exciting.
