The sunny side of the Alps is perhaps Europe’s best-kept secret: discover it before everyone finds out

Tours in Slovenia

Introducing Slovenia: one of Europe’s newest – and least-visited – countries. There’s an amazingly diverse array of scenery, with the ragged ribbons of the Julian Alps running through it; the dark and ancient forests of Triglav National Park; fabulous Gothic churches; and an indisputable vibrancy of colour. Also found here are the crystal-clear waters of Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj, and a second major mountain range, the Karavanke Mountains.

There's much to choose from on our Slovenia tours. Take a gentle walk in and around the foothills, or set off on a much tougher challenge and trek in the highlands. The rivers provide a perfect location for water-based activity holidays, with kayaking, rafting and hydrospeeding. Or there’s rock climbing, mountaineering, cycling and canyoning. And when you’re feeling hungry after a full day’s activity, the food here is hearty: bordered by the Mediterranean, Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary, the country has a delightful culinary mix.

Highlights of Slovenia trips

1. Lake Bled: A glacial lake in the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia, it adjoins the town of Bled. High above the tree line, the lake reflects the white shards of karst-like rock in its mirror-like waters.

2. The Julian Alps: Named after the conquering Emperor Julius Caesar, these limestone peaks rule this corner of Europe, their jagged peaks forming a rocky crown against the sky. It’s possible to spend a day here and not see another trekker.

3. Triglav: At 2864m, Triglav is Slovenia’s highest peak; ever since the first recorded climb in 1778, reaching the summit has been regarded as a rite of passage for Slovenians. Indeed, some of the world’s most famous mountaineers and alpinists hail from this area.

4. The Soca River: On the banks of the Soca River, the small town of Kobarid is a mecca for adventure seekers. Running down from the Julian Alps, the crystal-clear waters offer ideal conditions for a variety of adventurous activities. Here you can enjoy white-water rafting, canyoning and kayaking, as well as mountain biking and there’s one of Europe’s largest and most thrilling zip lines, high above the valley floor.

5. Lake Bohinj: Lake Bohinj lies between the Bohinj mountains, which rise from 1600m to 2000m. Slovenia's largest glacial lake, it's 4.2km long, 1km wide and 45m deep.

Slovenia is friendly place with unspoilt scenery in the lakes and mountains of the Julian Alps. ...
