Day 01 Hello, Ljubljana
A private transfer will greet you off your flight, ready to take you to your central hotel. Check in, then meet your fellow travellers and dedicated guide for an evening food crawl around picturesque Ljubljana. Typical Slovenian cuisine features thick stews and crispy pastries, borrowing influences from neighbouring Italy and Hungary. Enjoy a course at three different restaurants, paired with local wines and beers, before winding down to the city’s vibrant riverfront bars.
Day 02 Paddle-boarding on Lake Bled
Catch a late morning transfer over to Lake Bled, where today’s adventure will play out. With a turreted church peeking out from its central island and the vast mountainscape unfolding around you, this 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). Tonight, bed down beneath the stars in rustic glamping huts, replete with hot tubs and tranquil forest surroundings.
Day 03 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, take your pick of the restaurants at your disposal, then return to your huts and your hot tub.
Day 04 A morning by the lake
Your last morning in Slovenia is yours to spend as you please. From cycling along the lakeside paths to exploring Bled Castle, you’ll find plenty to do in this beautiful area. Then, catch a group transfer back to the airport (or if you’re waiting for a later flight, we can drop you off in the charming Old Town). If you feel like exploring this region further, we recommend extending your trip with our popular Croatian adventure, which will see you journey from Split to Dubrovnik in five days.

Why we stay here
You’ll feel fully immersed in the wilderness, but you won’t miss out on the luxuries thanks to the hot tubs and sauna. Make the most of the bike hire and pretty shoreline walks.
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. Do try to make sure your flight out of Ljubljana on Day 4 doesn’t depart until after 3pm so that you can make the most of one last morning by Lake Bled.
