Slovenia Travel Guide
We have a huge crush on Slovenia. Every time we try to decide where to go next, we just keep returning to Slovenia. This central European country, nestled between Austria, Italy, Croatia, and Hungary, will steal your heart. It has stolen ours.
If you love pristine natural environments and outdoor activities, Slovenia is for you. Brimming with turquoise-colored rivers, spellbinding gorges, majestic limestone mountains, alpine lakes, and expansive forest, Slovenia invites you to hike, climb, raft, kayak, paraglide, and more.
In the Julian Alps, you can experience the beauty of Triglav Lakes Valley, Mount Triglav, Lake Bohinj, and Pokljuka Plateau, whilst encountering grazing Ibex and edelweiss flowers along the way. In the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, you can explore Slovenia’s most heavenly glacial valleys, like Logar Valley, and attempt to keep up with Slovenia hikers along the Slovenian Mountain Trail. In the Karawanks, you can sample traditional food including the best štruklji in the country.
Most people’s itineraries are limited to Ljubljana and Lake Bled. We urge you to read this travel guide to discover Slovenia’s most alluring landscapes and hidden gems beyond the well-traversed path. If you’re planning a Slovenia road trip, also check out our 2-week itinerary and 5-day itinerary.
We have now visited Slovenia three times, always finding new hidden pockets to explore. We hope this guide helps you plan an unforgettable trip to Europe’s green heart.
