Base camp for this Slovenia Adventure is Bled. It’s about 35km north of Ljubljana and is the perfect representation of this idyllic country. Although Slovenia is small, it’s often called Europe in Miniature because of its diversity. When you see the Julian Alps, you’ll be reminded of Switzerland, and the coastline will remind you of the Mediterranean.
The breathtaking vistas begin straight away. You’ll take a cable car to the top of Mt Vogel in Triglav National Park. At 1500 metres the hike is one incredible view after another. If the weather permits, the group may head for the Šija peak. This entire day is influenced by the presence of Lake Bohini – the village, church, and bridge are completely charming.
The rafting portion of the trip is led by a professional river guide who will lead you through pools, gates, and rapids. The Sava Dolinka cuts across all of Slovenia giving you a chance to see Alpine forests, moss covered boulders, and cypress trees. The river is graded 2 to 3 in difficulty.
In Piran, explore the underground canyon of Škocjan Caves. Carved over time by the Reka River, the caves really help to create the atmosphere of medieval Piran. Situated on the Slovenian coastline (and once well known as a pirate stronghold), Piran is as photogenic as they come. Kayah, explore, feast on great food, and soak up the Venetian ambiance.
Wrap up the trip with a mountain bike adventure in Triglav National Park. Choose the route along the Radovna River to the village of Zgornja Radovna or the more elevated route to Srednja Vas and Lipnica. No matter the route, you’ll be riding through beautiful national forest. The reward for all your adventuring is a three hour luxury afternoon at Ziva Wellness Centre.
