Adventure Holidays in Slovenia

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.

Slovenia Adventure Holidays

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.
