Our Lakes and Mountains trip will have you spoilt for choice with the variety and quality of self-guided walks. You can explore amongst immaculate, hidden mountain valleys where strips of vegetables grow amongst the hayfields and orchards, discover enchanting, tiny villages brimming with traditional architecture, or ascend exhilarating mountains for amazing panoramas.
Mountains, lakes, meadows and forests in pristine environments - that's alpine Slovenia. What more could you ask from a walking holiday? Wandering across wildflower meadows with the sound of cowbells jangling and the omnipresent backdrop of the magnificent Julian Alps is a pure delight.
For contrast you stay in two different areas in Kranjska Gora and Lake Bohinj to fully appreciate the beauty of Slovenia and, with so many wonderful, varied walks from your ‘doorstep’, you just might find yourself wishing you were in invigorating Slovenia for longer!
On arrival in Ljubljana, you will be transferred to Lake Bohinj.
Days 2-3 :
There are a variety of walks to choose from, of varying grades: walk around beautiful Lake Bohinj, visit the impressive Savica waterfalls, trek off the beaten track into the picturesque Mostnica Valley, summit Vogel for panoramic views, walk into the Lower Bohinj Valley systems or visit charming traditional villages.
Transfer to the scenically located town of Kranjska Gora, stopping off at Lake Bled. After checking into your pension, why not take the short, level stroll out of town to the tiny emerald green lakes at Jasna?
Days 5-7 :
Enjoy more walking opportunities from your base, with varying grades. Walk in the Tamar Valley, the Velika Pisnica Valley or trek to the summit of ’Sleme’. Enjoy a chairlift ride up to the peak of Vitranc, walk to the Martuljak Waterfalls or visit the springs at Zelenci.
Transfer back to Ljubljana airport for your flight back to the UK.
