Day 1: Discover Bled and Bohinj Valley
Bled, with its handsome lake, is a major drawcard for Slovenia. If you decide to take a tour, you'll take a bus ride around the beautiful lake then take a guided tour of the Bled castle. The tour will then carry on to the largest glacier lake in Slovenia, situated in the region of the Julian Alps mountain range. You'll get a chance to reach the source of the Sava Bohinjka River and have enough time to relax at the side of the peaceful Bohinj Lake.
Day 2: Make it Mediterranean
Want the best of both worlds? If you're staying in the alpine resort of Bled, a little bit of the Mediterranean world is not far away. Take a tour of beautiful Portorož and Piran, starting with the small fishing town of Izola, and sailing along the coast to Piran, where you'll take a walking tour through the medieval township. You'll have time to swim in the Adriatic or have lunch in one of the numerous fresh fish restaurants before heading on to the Portorož, the most popular Slovene coastal resort.
Day 3: Wine and Wild Horses
In the southwestern part of Slovenia lies a region called Kras (Karst), a fascinating land of rare beauty, secret underground waters and caves. Spend a day discovering this magical place by taking a one-day tour from Ljubljana. Explore the typical Karst architecture of the Štanjel village, taste some local goods and wine, then continue on to the picturesque village of Lipica, where for more than 400 years, beautiful white horses called Lipizzaners have been bred. A local guide will take you on a tour through the stables before the star Lipizzaner studs perform an exhibition of their training.
