START / FINISH - Ljubljana
Activity code: SLFD01
Duration: 8 Days
Experience Slovenia's "best bits" on a week-long self-drive holiday. Starting in the capital, Ljubljana, your journey will include stunning National Parks, historic towns (large & small), beautiful coastal resorts and much more. The route is designed to be a complete circuit from Ljubljana so you may begin your travels via Lake Bled and come back directly from the coast or vice versa. This holiday can be easily extended by adding nights in some or all locations or, of course, introducing new places such as the incredible Logar Valley, Bovec (on the Soca River) or the Goriska Brda wine region in the west.
All our holidays have tried and trusted driving routes with our personal suggestions for sightseeing included with your final travel documents but you are free to explore or relax as much as you like within the overall structure of the itinerary. Driving conditions are excellent, in fact the highways* cut down on travel times but also free up space on minor roads so drivers can choose between peaceful scenic routes or speedier alternatives to make the most of time away from home.
Begin your holiday with some relaxing sightseeing in Ljubljana, a city which is a delight to wander around both daytime and evening; it is compact and very friendly with some excellent viewpoints and historic architecture. After the capital it is only a short drive north to the stunning Lake Bled and the Triglav National Park, where you can choose to stay in one or more of Bled, Bohinj and Kranjska Gora to make the most of the outdoor activities and the plentiful fresh air on offer. En route to your next location, Postojna and its fabulous caves you have a full day to meander through the mountain villages on the smaller roads, maybe packing a picnic. Your final destination is Isola (or Piran) on Slovenia's small but beautiful Adriatic shoreline. From here you are ideally placed for a short trip into Croatia or Italy prior to heading back on the highway to Ljubljana and your flight home.
Flights available to book with us through a range of airlines, from various UK airports to Ljubljana. If we book your flights this means that your holiday will also be fully ATOL protected.
Our hire cars include Slovenia's Vignette (or highway tax disc).
