Up the adrenaline on this exhilarating tour of Slovenia
Famous for its fairytale-like surrounds – including an emerald-green lake with a church in its middle and medieval castle – you’d be forgiven for thinking Bled was a tourist town filled with doe-eyed lovebirds and wannabe Hans Christian Andersen types. Think again. Hike lush trails on Mt Vogel, go mountain biking alongside the Radovna River in Triglav National Park and hold on to your helmets on a rafting trip on the Sava Dolinka. Along with all this adventure, there’s plenty of free time to discover this spectacular part of Slovenia for yourself.
Bled is a joy to explore, a beautiful active paradise that lies on a stunning lake at the edge of the Julian Alps, whose island church appears to have come straight out of a fairytale
From the top of Mt Vogel, hike along lush trails, looking down to the valley where deep green forest meets the endless blue of the glacial Lake Bohinj
Cycle through mountain pastures to outstanding lookouts in Triglav National Park, then reward weary muscles in the soothing Ziva Wellness Centre
Laze in the Italianate squares of the terracotta roofed old town of Piran, or kayak around this incredibly photogenic spit of land jutting out into the sparkling Adriatic
Ride a raft over the rugged rapids, gates and pools of the Sava Dolinka River
