Program

Bohinj

We will reach Bohinj passing through the Soriška Planina Mountain and taking the roads mostly hidden from other tourists. The Bohinj area offers a lot of natural heritage highlights but the most famous is the Bohinj Lake, the biggest lake in Slovenia. Not far away there is the 71m high Savica waterfall, which we will reach walking along a forest path. The landscape here offers a lot of experiences, sport activities, walking oaths and meditation points. The view on the beauties of the nature relaxes your body and soul. All the gourmet lovers will be amazed by the fantastic local food, cheese, cottage cheese and home dishes.

Bled

Lake Bled has fabulous colours with a cute little island inside and for sure the most famous view of Slovenia. A place where the genuine nature invites you with its pleasant energy. We will walk by the lake, enjoy the company of swans and make a walk to the Bled Castle. The history of this castle dates back to the 11th century. There we can admire the fabulous view on the landscape and surroundings of Bled. We experience a ride with the “pletna boat” and reach the small island on which stands a church with the wishing bell and make a wish. A pit stop in the cafe where you will try the Bled »kremšnita« cake is a must before you leave this place. A unique experience will be also our car-train ride to reach the Soca valley.
