Trip itinerary


Tumbling down to the Adriatic from a wild, karstic plateau and almost entirely surrounded by Slovenia, Trieste is physically and psychologically isolated from the rest of the Italian peninsula. As such, it preserves its own unique border-town culture and retains a fascinating air of fluidity encapsulated in the Triestini dialect, a strange melange of Italian, Austrian-German, Croatian and Greek.

Soča Valley’s “capital”, Bovec offers plenty for adventure-sports enthusiasts. With the Julian Alps above, the Soča River below and Triglav National Park all around, you could spend a week here rafting, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking and, in winter, skiing, without ever doing the same thing twice. It’s beautiful country and Bovec’s a pleasant town in which to base yourself for these activities.

Private transfer from the airport in Trieste to to your hotel in Bovec.

Overnight in Bovec.

But all that lies beneath it from the Old Town to Ljubljana’s multitude of museums and galleries are more than worthy of further investigation.
