Closer attractions include the picturesque shepherd’s huts of Velika Planina nearby Kamnik and the legendary Postojna cave halfway on the way to the seaside. Slightly longer tours take you further south-west towards Piran, passing the Škocjan caves, then there are day trips to the legendary lakes of Bled and Bohinj, Triglav national park and the Julian Alps to the north-East, and the Kamnik-Savinje Alps and the Logar Valley to the north. One tour includes crossing the border over to Croatia to reach the splendid Plitvice Lakes while another takes you to Venice in Italy.
After you’ve seen all the forests, hills, mountains, rivers, lakes, towns, villages and cities you must be ready for a drink. Slovenia is a known wine-country and there’s really no better way to get a taste of the place than through it’s widely produced and consumed drink. So why not join the Wine Tour Slovenia and get your fair share of red, white and orange and come back home with something to tell and remember.
