Slovenia, a country in Central Europe, is known for its mountains, ski resorts, and lakes. On Lake Bled, a glacial lake fed by hot springs, the town of Bled contains a church-topped islet and a cliffside medieval castle. In Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, baroque facades mix with the 20th-century architecture of native Jože Plečnik, whose iconic Tromostovje (Triple Bridge) spans the tightly curving Ljubljanica River. Locals in Slovenia will be happy to introduce visitors to their traditional food, culture, monuments, and natural wonders. … Showing off the beauty of their country is something Slovenians also love to do.
Most of our Slovenia self-guided, small group and privately guided walking holidays take place in the Julian Alps. Their jagged limestone peaks offer some of Europe’s best scenery and walking, with Mount Triglav (the highest in Slovenia) at the center of the range, and the glacial lakes Bohinj and Bled far below. Climb Mount Triglav, privately guided by an expert mountain guide, or take a self-guided walking holiday in Western Slovenia to discover the hidden secrets of the Postojna Caves.
Travel between the India and Slovenia is currently restricted. If, however, you would like to plan a holiday – be it walking, cycling, touring, or snow holiday – we are accepting bookings for 2021 as normal, with the added bonus that prices for our summer holidays remain unchanged from 2022.

Like all our holidays, our walking holidays in Slovenia revolve around three key ingredients: unspoiled scenery; hand-picked accommodation of character where you’ll receive a warm welcome; and delicious regional cuisine. We’ll ensure you enjoy your walking holiday to the full.
We take great pride in our route guides, updating them constantly so that you have the most current information and can enjoy the richest possible holiday experience. Walking at a pace that suits you, you can rely on them to steer you from A to B, and fill you in about places of interest and local culture along the way.
Not being part of a group means you can stay in intimate hotels and guesthouses, and gives you so much freedom. Freedom to choose your start date, the length of your holiday (feel free to add extra nights) and your travel route – we’ll happily book a bespoke travel package for you, either by air, by rail or by ferry.
