Join Wilderness Tour of Slovenia

This multi-day tour starts in Ljubljana. It first visits the important sights in the city, such as the Dragon Bridge, Preseren Square, and the unique Triple Bridge. After Ljubljana, the tour heads to the Kolpa River, where you can enjoy glamping, hiking, and swimming. Bear tracking and a visit to a bear observatory near Kočevje will delight nature lovers. After mushroom hunting, the tour heads towards the 22 underground lakes in Križna Caves. The fascinating cave is best explored with boat tours.

Visit Vintgar Gorge

The Vintar Gorge is undoubtedly one of the most prominent Slovenian natural attractions. The Gorge is flanked by steep slopes and thick beech forests and is at least 1,600 meters long. It’s a gorgeous place to walk in, easy to get to, and incredibly beautiful. A charming boardwalk suspended over the river is lovely and provides impressive views of the river and the gorge.

Get adventurous on Soča Valley

The valley is famous for the amazingly beautiful Soča river, waterfalls, caves, and other stunning landscapes scattered all around. Its beauty is so mesmerizing that the producers of the Hollywood movie, Narnia, decided to shoot some parts of the film here. 

Visitors to Soča valley can enjoy hiking, climbing, biking, photography, flower picking, and other outdoor activities. But, experiencing the canyoning here really is something special. It includes sliding down the waterfalls, jumping off the rocks and swimming in emerald green pools.

Underground Kayaking in Koroska

One of Slovenia’s most exciting destinations is Koroška, where you will find unusual attraction hidden in Mount Peća – underground lakes. After the mines of the Mount Peća were shut down, some of them filled up with water from underground lakes. A small mine train takes visitors 3.5 kilometers inside the tunnel for an underground kayaking tour. After about 700 meters of kayaking, a traditional miner’s meal is served. This is a very unusual – and pretty unforgettable experience.
