Best of Slovenia

8 Day Tour, from £1700 per person

Slovenia is one of Europe’s underrated treasures. Blessed with stunning craggy mountain ranges, beautiful shimmering lakes and alpine forest, it almost seems unfair that Slovenia should also be home to a section of picture-perfect Adriatic coast. But possibly its greatest asset is that compared with western Europe, or the likes of its Croatian or Austrian neighbours, Slovenia remains relatively untouched by mass tourism and the crowds have yet to cotton on. Explore Ljubljana, the pretty capital city overlooked by a castle at its centre before delving deeper into the country and visiting the mountains, picturesque Lake Bled, the Postojna Caves and Piran situated on the Slovenian coast.
