The soaring Julian Alps capture a touch of Switzerland, the radiating coastline oozes Mediterranean charm and Bled’s sweet island church appears to have come straight out of a fairytale. There is plenty of action for adrenaline junkies, from cycling, hiking and skiing, to canyoning, caving and boating. For those who prefer a slower pace, just sit back and take in the postcard-perfect views.
Our Slovenia trips score an average of 4 out of 5 based on 6 reviews in the last year.
Intrepid was ok. There were parts they were excellent at (booking, some of the trips involved in the Lake Bled trip) but some places where they fall down massively (accommodation, value for money). I wouldn't use Intrepid again.

This trip is a great way to see a country in a way you might not if you just came as a holiday. The organised activities give you a great way to meet new people and have fun whilst exploring the beat parts of Slovenia.
