About Slovenia

Beautiful lakes, mountains, mediaeval towns, waterfalls and the Adriatic.

Slovenia's customs and culture have been influenced greatly by its surroundings - Italy, Austria and Hungary - but it has now been independent for two decades and is a full member of the EU. Slovenia has been described as having a "bridge" culture between east and west with its multilingual population and a mix of both Catholic and Orthodox churchgoers.

Slovenia's dramatic scenery and legendary hospitality are unquestionably real, as you'll confirm when you have explored a country still waiting to be rediscovered.

Tailor Made Holidays

Rediscover the World offers holidays from the coast in the west, sandwiched between Italy and Istria (Croatia), to the north in the mountains of the fabulous Triglav National Park (e.g. Kransjka Gora and Lake Bled). Must-see sights include the capital, Ljubljana, the Vintgar Gorge near Lake Bled, the Postojna Caves, the Sava river valley and the beautiful seaside towns of Izola and Piran. There are flights from the UK directly into Ljubljana and also to nearby locations in Croatia such as Pula and Zagreb. Why not consider one of our popular fly-drives giving you more sightseeing time - we will provide our fully detailed driving routes, maps and sightseeing suggestions as part of the package.

Activities, Food & Wine

Slovenia is an ideal destination for families and those looking for an active holiday, there are so many opportunities for hiking, cycling, kayaking and horse-riding as well as more adventurous pursuits such as zip-lines, canyoning, cave exploring and paragliding. For those who prefer food-related and cultural activities we can recommend lots of wine tasting, local produce, nature-themed trails, craft demonstrations and great places to eat.

Slovenia has become more and more well known for its wines in recent years. The best areas are in the extreme west, Goriska Brda region, which is full of small producers and some stunning scenery. In the north-east you'll find the Maribor and Ormož vineyards, home of golden Renski Riesling; moving south, there is the Dolenjska region, home of light red, drinkable "Cviček"; travelling west you come to the Primorska region, best known for its rich red wines, Refošk and Merlot and a little further north-west you finally come to the famous Vipava valley, vineyards of choice of the Hapsburgs.

We look forward to being of service.
