You want adventure? Glide down natural rock slides, traverse gorges, rappel down waterfalls for a canyoning adventure you will never forget. Ascend rock walls to the top of the idyllic Julian Alps and ring a celebratory bell. Explore the underground hollows and tunnels of the Skocjanske Caves.
After rock climbing, biking, and canoeing. After speeding down the mountain on a unique toboggan. Chill at the Lido Beach Club on the shore of Lake Bled. Jump into the pristine blue lake, ride down the waterslide, or play Frisbee with your new friends. Always available, sweeping views.
Set your sights high. To Ljubljana Castle, perched on a hilltop. Take the funicular up to take in the view and explore the castle. Then, Ljubljana, a capital city that feels like a small town. Fall in love with five thousand years of history, a medieval castle, decorative portals and friendly store owners.
This small nation is very comfortable in its lush, emerald-green shoes. A place made for exploring outdoors, Slovenia is a natural playground that invites you to enjoy the fresh air and feel the thrill of adventure. The towering peaks of the idyllic Julian Alps. A glacier-fed lake that inspired myths and legends. Beautiful streams and waterfalls. And then there’s the island castle of majestic Lake Bled. But there’s also diverse architecture. Ljubljana Castle, perched on a hilltop in the center of the capital city, dates back to the mid-15th century, built as walls and barracks to provide protection against Turkish invasions and peasant uprisings. A relatively “new” nation—Slovenia has only been independent since 1991—Slovenia lacks the deep roots of other larger European nations, but still has its own unique history. Present-day Slovenia was first settled by early humans more than 250,000 years ago and was at times inhabited by Illyrian and Celtic tribes, Ancient Romans, Slavic tribes, Carantanians, and Bavarians, eventually becoming part of Yugoslavia. This small country seized its independence without royalty or military leaders.
I learned new languages, different activities, food, culture, and self sufficiency. I found myself doing activities and being in places I never would have imagined. I would do it all again without hesitation, especially canyoning in Slovenia.”
This was Macie’s third summer with you and was the experience of a lifetime. She made so many new friends whom she has kept in touch with. Slovenia was her favorite country!! This trip sealed in her love for travel. She loved her Director. She was in awe of his life experiences and the zest he had for life and travel. 100% without reservation I recommend this trip. I would love to take it myself.”
