Itinerary

Day 1: ARRIVAL IN KRANJSKA GORA

Start your tour in the fabulous alpine town of Kranjska Gora with the beautiful western Julian Alps as your backdrop.

Day 2: HIKING JASNA VALLEY (5 hrs, ↔ 17 km, ↑↓ 460 m)

Your warm-up day-walk will take you out past the first of many beautiful lakes you'll visit on this trip: Lake Jasna. With the jagged peaks of the Julian Alps behind it, Lake Jasna is the perfect spot for relaxing. But don't get too caught up in the view because there's more ahead. Continuing on into the Jasna Valley, you'll be greeted by the beauty of the Prisank and Razor Mountains. The trail back is via the “Russian Chapel” dedicated to Russian POWs who died during WW1 building the military road over Vršič Pass.

Day 3: CYCLING KRANJSKA GORA – BLED (↔ 40 km)

Today's activity takes you alongside flowing rivers as they slice their way through lush valleys framed by towering mountains. At the village of Mojstrana, you'll head into the Krma and Radovna valleys. At the exit, take a short detour along the thundering rapids of Vintgar Gorge, before heading into the fairytale world of Lake Bled.

Day 4: CYCLING BLED - KROPA - RADOVLJICA - BLED (↔ 35 km)

Today you pedal to Slovenia's foremost blacksmith town, Kropa, and can visit an iron forging museum. Then cycle up the hill to the lovely hilltop church of Jamnik for a classic postcard view of Slovenia: church and mountains. On the way back, stop in the beautifully preserved old town of Radovljica and its interesting beekeeping museum.

Day 5: RAFTING LAKE BLED (↔ 8 km, grade 2-3)

A three-hour rafting trip on the Sava Dolinka river (grade 2-3). This trip is suitable for all, no extra experience or equipment needed. With a free afternoon in Bled you'll have time to explore its lake, row yourself over to the island church, and hike up to the clifftop castle for a splendid view across the lake and valley, then end the day by treating yourself to Bled's famous cream cake.

Day 6: HIKING POKLJUKA – USKOVNICA - LAKE BOHINJ (4 hrs, ↔ 14 km, ↑ 30 m, ↓ 830 m) 

Starting in the pristine forest of the karst Pokljuka Plateau, you'll hike across mountain pastures and old farmhouses to a viewing point providing outstanding views into the Bohinj Valley. As you descend, you can stop at the little historic village of Studor for a glimpse into life as it was 150 years ago.

Day 7: KAYAKING OR CANOEING AT BOHINJ LAKE

A rest day or a gentle kayak on Lake Bohinj.

Lake Bohinj, the jewel of the Triglav National Park. Spend a lazy, tranquil afternoon on one of the hidden beaches, or take a circuitous walk around the lake, then the cable car up for a view of the lake and valley from Vogel ski resort (1532m high) or head to its source, Savica waterfall.

Day 8: DEPARTURE

After breakfast or extension of your stay.
