The Flash Pack Promise
Here at Flash Pack, we’re committed to unique adventures that deliver great value for money. We pack our trips with epic experiences (unlike other companies, all activities are included), hand-pick stylish hotels and match you with like-minded people.
A gourmet crawl in Ljubljana
Step off your plane in Ljubljana International Airport, put on your shades and prepare to get wild. You’re no ordinary tourist, you’re a fearless Flashpacker ready to step into your private transfer and be whisked off to your central hotel. Once you’ve checked in and freshened up, meet your guide in your hotel lobby for an evening foodie crawl around Ljubljana. Get to know your fellow Flashpackers as you eat and drink your way along its charming traffic-free streets, tasting typical Slovenian cuisine (think thick stews, flatbreads and moreish pastries) with a course at three different restaurants, along with local wine and beer pairings. Slovenia is home to a thriving microbrewery scene, and some of the oldest-producing vines in Europe; wine here is rarely exported and all the better for it. We’ll finish the night at some buzzing riverfront bars. Fuel up for your wilderness weekend, soaking in the energy of this small, green and buzzing capital.Read more
Some bleddy good paddle-boarding
After breakfast at your hotel, your late morning transfer awaits to take you to enchanting Lake Bled. With a turreted church perched on its central island and lush mountain scenery enclosing it, this lagoon looks fresh out of a fairy tale. But you Flashpackers aren’t content with just admiring its beauty, you’re getting on it. On a paddle-board to be precise, where you can (attempt to) stand up and glide across its shimmering turquoise surface. Aim for the island, where we’ll climb 99 baroque steps to see the ancient church and clock tower, where legend has it if you ring the bell three times, you’ll be granted one wish. For those of you wishing for an amazing place to stay tonight, your dream is our command. Your Bled-side bedside comes in the form of triangular glamping huts, complete with spacious hot tubs and peaceful surroundings. Wallow away under a starry night.Read more
Canyon through the Bohinj Valley
Wake up to a breakfast basket sitting on the doorstep of your snug wooden hut, before cutting a path to Lake Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest lake. Here, we’ll canyon through the Bohinj Valley, sliding, swimming and leaping through a hidden network of deep canyons, natural slides and fresh mountain streams on one rollercoaster ride. Embrace the challenge as you abseil and clamber your way between dramatic valley ravines, supporting your fellow Flashpackers as you conquer heights and work together as a team. Then, after giving Bear Grylls a run for his money, enjoy a hearty lunch before an afternoon’s hiking in the valley. Take in the awesome views across the lakes and get your lungs pumping with a heavy hit of fresh air. Come evening, take your pick of the restaurants – there’s plenty of great pizza here, with Italy so close by. Later, return to your glamping huts for a warming hot tub ‘n’ beer.Read more
A morning by the lake
Spend your last morning in Slovenia doing whatever you please in the killer scenery, be it cycling along lakeside paths or wandering up to Bled Castle for amazing views across the region you called home. Then, once you have psyched yourself up for leaving this world of breakfast baskets and sparkling lakes, we’ll head back as a group to Ljubljana International Airport. For those with a later flight, we’ll drop you off in the charming Old Town where you can eat your way through the food market, hang out with students in leafy pavement cafés or head to the much-loved Tivoli Park. Make your way to the airport in your own time, batteries fully recharged. You’ve beer-crawled, paddle-boarded and canyoned your way through this off-radar corner of Europe, supersizing your weekend with hot tubs, glamping and a hefty dose of nature therapy along the way. Let’s face it: you’re winning at life.Read more
