A TOUCH OF SLOVENIA 5 DAYS
A short (but sweet) introduction tour to the wonders of Slovenia, visiting Ljubljana and the fairytale town of Bled.
Departure: daily | Min. size of group: 2 persons | Duration: 5 days / 4 nights
Day 1: Ljubljana Airport–Ljubljana City
Upon arrival in Ljubljana, transfer to your hotel. Start your experience of the city by a walk along the gently flowing Ljubljanica River. Discover the small streets of the Old Town, have a coffee at one of the numerous riverside cafés, visit the central Market for your fresh selection of fruits, vegetables and fish. In the evening, treat yourself to a delightful meal in one of the many restaurants.
Day 2: Ljubljana City–Postojna–Ljubljana City
After breakfast start your day with a half-day walking tour of Ljubljana. Walk through the Old Town and learn more about the history of the city. Visit the main city park – Tivoli, take the funicular to the castle of Ljubljana and view the city from its highest point. The castle hosts several quality restaurants with exquisite selections of gourmet meals and snacks, while enjoying the unsurpassed view of the city below. In the afternoon visit Postojna, only 30 minutes driving from Ljubljana. The town is world-famous for its cave, Postojnska Jama, which is one of the longest cave systems in the world and the only one with a double track railway. If you are lucky, you will also have a chance to see the fantastic and unique cave dweller – proteus, also called 'Human Fish'. Evening return back to Ljubljana and a chance to visit one of the traditional taverns with local food and music.
Day 3: Ljubljana City–Bled
After breakfast you will leave the capital and start your trip toward Northern Slovenia, known for its majestic mountains, lakes and traditional landscape. We suggest a stop in Radovljica for a visit of the Apicultural Museum. The world-famous town of Bled, with the lake with an island and a church is probably the most known image of Slovenia. Spend the afternoon with a leisure walk along the lake and do not forget to stop in Hotel Park restaurant and try the traditional Bled cream cake – the signature sweet of Slovenia.
Day 4: Bled–Bohinj–Bled
After breakfast we suggest a drive along the scenic Sava Bohinjka Valley towards the nearby lake of Bohinj. We suggest you take your swimsuit with you, as on a hot day it is quite refreshing to plunge into the crystal waters of Bohinj Lake. Take the cable car to a viewpoint on Vogel Mountain. On a clear day, the view from the top can reach more than 20 km, overlooking Bohinj Lake and the surrounding forests and mountains. Continue towards nearby Savica waterfall for another set of great photos. Have a lunch in Ukanc where Sava Bohinjka River flows into the lake. After lunch take a leisure walk by the Bohinj Lake before returning to Bled.
