Begin your break at Lake Bled, the most popular destination in Slovenia. Change into your sports gear and take a paddle board out on the lake. Stop at Bled island and take in the stunning views of the surrounding mountains, and try some amazing gelato. Round off the day with a hike to Osojnica Hill, where you will enjoy marvelous evening views of the lake.

Stand-up Paddle boarding on Lake Bled
Trail to Mala Osojnica is around 30 minutes hiking with 211 m (690 ft) of elevation gain. Optionally, you can continue higher to Velika Osojnica for another 15 minutes.
For the early risers among us, we can wake up before dawn and hike up a small hill called Ojstrica to see the sunrise reflected in Lake Bled. We will have time for breakfast and some downtime before heading to Lake Bohinj. Go on an exhilarating canyoning adventure in a nearby canyon, abseiling, tobogganing, and jumping down the cool stream.
After lunch, we’ll head out kayaking on the lake and then down the Sava Bohinjka River. In the afternoon, we will take it easy around Lake Bohinj, but if you are more active and adventurous, there is a trail around the lake as well as bike hire to explore the area further.
Kayaking on Sava River
Start the day by driving up a winding mountain road leading over the Vršič Pass and taking in the amazing scenery of the Julian Alps. We will continue our drive to the valley of the emerald Soča River, where we will enjoy some light hiking before reaching Bovec — the adrenaline capital of Slovenia — where you’ll spend a couple of days.
After lunch, you’ll get back in harnesses and head to the zipline in the mountains above the town, where a series of steel cables will send you flying across the valley for a thrilling adventure with spectacular views. To end the day, we will hike around Bovec and visit the Virje Waterfall.
Overnight stay in Bovec
Enjoy a morning off, sleep in, and explore the area of Bovec. Fill up on energy for an exciting afternoon of white water rafting down the Soča River — the perfect way to experience this alpine jewel. We will finish the day strong with a drive up the highest road in Slovenia, the Mangart Pass, which is more than 2,000 meters (about 6500 feet) above sea level. You will be amazed by the views, and feel like you’re on top of the world.
Don’t forget to bring a swimsuit and towel for this day full of wet fun!
