Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1 Ljubljana: Arrival into Ljubljana, Slovenia

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Welcome to Slovenia! You’ll land at Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport where your private driver will meet you for transfer to your hotel in the city. After checking in, you’ll have the rest of the day to relax or explore at your leisure. While you’ll take a walking tour through the capital tomorrow, you might want to get a preview, stretching your legs with a leisurely stroll. Nestled in an alpine valley along the Ljubljanica River, it’s especially picturesque with cobbled streets jam-packed with baroque architecture, trendy cafes, art galleries and museums. Consider dining at a restaurant within the walls of Ljubljana Castle.

Day 2 Ljubljana: Guided Ljubljana Walking Tour

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Meet our local guide this morning for a private walking tour that will bring you to see the highlights in Ljubljana’s medieval Old Town. You’ll stroll through the open-air market, witness the unique Triple Bridge, Robba’s Fountain and the baroque-style Town Hall while learning about the sights and the history behind them from your expert guide. A visit to Ljubljana Castle, the Virtual Museum and the Ljubljana Castle Tower which offers impressive views of the city and well beyond is included as well. This evening we recommend trying the signature Slovenian dish called struklji. These rolled dumplings have been served here since the 16th-century.

Day 3 Ljubljana: Postojna Caves, Predjama Castle & Lipica Equestrian Center

Predjama Castle, Slovenia

Today a full-day private tour will bring you to the Postojna Caves, Predjama Castle and Lipica Equestrian Center. Your first stop is Europe’s largest show caves, Postojna, a nearly 12.5-mile complex of beautifully sculpted galleries, stalactites and stalagmites, chambers, and halls. End by viewing the rare olm, Proteus anguinus, a unique salamander like creature that lives in the country’s karst caves. Next is the Renaissance Predjama Castle, built right inside of a cave in the picturesque village of Predjama. Finally, you’ll take a walking tour of the famous Lipica Equestrian Center, led by a local guide, and enjoy a performance by the Lipizzan horses.

Day 4 Bled: Private Guided Bled Tour & Hike

Vintgar Gorge, Slovenia

As you check out of your hotel this morning, you’ll be met by your private driver for transfer to Bled. After getting settled into your hotel, you’ll meet another private driver/guide for a half-day tour of Bled followed by a hike in the magnificent Vintgar Gorge. It begins with a walking tour around beautiful Lake Bled and the thousand-year-old town. Afterwards you’ll travel by car to Vintgar Gorge, where the Radovna River with its rapids, pools and waterfalls flows through. Follow the trail over wooden birdges, ending at a bridge that provides a spectacular view of the 53-foot-tall Sum waterfall.

Day 5 Bled: Full Day Private Tour of the Bled Countryside

Bohinj Lake, Slovenia

Venturing out into the Bled countryside, you’ll join your driver/guide for a private tour that begins by visiting beautiful Lake Bohinj in the Bohinj Valley of the Julian Alps. Next, you’ll explore the Alpine Dairy Museum, housed inside a former cheese dairy in Stara Fuzina to learn about the area’s dairy production. A stop will be made at the cheese factory store so that you can purchase some of the local dairy products too. Enjoy lunch before travelling back toward Bled, stopping to meet an organic beekeeper at an over 60-year-old apiary. You’ll discover how honey is produced and enjoy a honey tasting too.

Day 6 Departure

Lake Bled, Slovenia

After five nights exploring Slovenia, your tour comes to an end this morning. Your private driver will pick you up at your accommodation for transfer from Bled to Ljubljana. You can be dropped off at the airport or at a local hotel if you’ve decided to stick around longer. With so many fantastic destinations nearby, it’s easy to extend your trip by contacting our travel experts. Perhaps Croatia?
