From serene Lake Bled to Venetian architecture along the harbour towns and the lively, art nouveau capital of Ljubljana, Slovenia promises an idyllic European holiday without the crowds. Most recently, the country has been named the European Region of Gastronomy for 2021. Emphasis here falls firmly on ecological farming and sustainability – the capital Ljubljana is one of the greenest cities on earth – with locally sourced ingredients harvested from Adriatic salt pans, grown in gardens, and foraged from meadows. One of the most sustainable countries in the world welcomes visitors to experience all its little-known secrets.

Slovenia

Kayaking in Bohinj

In the cradle of the 2000-metre-high Lower Bohinj Mountains, Lake Bohinj is a scenic spot popular for outdoor sports and great views. Explore the beautiful lake on a kayak, rowing your way past green shores and small churches, and taking in the gorgeous colours of the fall foliage in autumn.

Explore the Goriška Brda Hills

Known as the ‘Tuscany of Slovenia’, the tiny, wine-producing region is a picture-postcard area of rolling hills, small settlements and churches. Hillsides are lined with grapevines and orchards, castles are private tasting rooms, where you can sample the region’s fine local vino in a beautiful setting.

Dine at Hisa Franko with Chef Ana Roš

Voted the most talented chef in the world in 2016, and with an episode of Chef’s Table to her credit, Chef Ana Roš has put Slovenian cuisine on the world map. Hisa Franko is among Europe’s most celebrated restaurants, set amidst the stunning Soča Valley, serving local and seasonal produce with a delicious twist.

Visit Lipica Stud Farm

Around 400 years ago, the indigenous Karst horse was refined with other breeds to meet the court and military demands of the Habsburgs. Explore the 16th-century court stud farm with a guide to see the stables, serene pastures, and marvelous horses.

Soca Valley River Rafting

The emerald green River Soca cascades scroll narrow gorges with waterfalls, canyons, and pools along its course. Kayaking or rafting along this gorgeous river is a truly wonderful experience, where you’ll cross karst creeks, moss-covered rocks, and glorious Slovenian countryside on a thrilling adventure.

Ring the Church Bell of Bled Island

A tiny island in the midst of serene Lake Bled houses the historic, 17th-century St. Mary’s Church. A monumental staircase leads from the harbour to the beautiful church, and a Gothic bell tower on the island. Legend has it that ringing the church bell makes your wishes come true, and so the sunken bell draws many visitors who come in search of good luck.
