Slovenia Road Trip Itinerary

Slovenia Road Trip Itinerary: A Complete Guide to 2 Weeks in Slovenia

We can’t praise traveling in Slovenia enough. It’s a country that is profoundly beautiful and pristine. It’s also a country that is mindful and thoughtful about preserving its natural environment.

This Slovenia road trip itinerary begins and ends in Ljubljana. From the capital, you’ll head to the lovely town of Piran on the Adriatic Sea. Next, you’ll drive up the Soča Valley and into the heart of the Julian Alps.

After visiting Kranjska Gora, your trip continues to to Pokljuka Plateau and Lake Bled.

You’ll explore the beautiful lakes and alpine pastures of Triglav National Park, including Lake Bohinj, and then drive to the heavenly Logar Valley in the Kamnik Alps, before returning to Ljubljana.

If you have less than two weeks, you can compress this itinerary. At the end of this post, we’ve outlined a 10 day Slovenia itinerary as well as a 7 day Slovenia itinerary. For more ideas, check out our 5 Day Slovenia road trip.

We recommend following this Slovenia road trip route in late Spring, Summer, or early Fall.

Here’s an overview of our recommended 2 week Slovenia road trip itinerary:

  • 1 Night in Ljubljana
  • 1 Night in Piran
  • 2 Nights in Kobarid, or Bovec in the Soča Valley
  • 2 Nights in Kranjska Gora
  • 2 Nights in Lake Bled
  • 2 Nights in Lake Bohinj
  • 1 Night in Zgornje Jezersko
  • 2 Nights in Logar Valley

Driving in Slovenia

If you’re driving into Slovenia from a neighboring country, make sure to purchase a vignette right after you cross the border.

You can buy a vignette at any petrol station. If you’re renting a car in Ljubljana, your rental car company will provide this. Often the vignette is included in your contract, though sometimes it isn’t.

In this Slovenia road trip itinerary, we’ve provided a few opportunities to cross into neighboring countries (Italy, Austria) for several hours, in order to see some scenic places. Please confirm with your rental car company, whether that’s possible.

You may need to buy a cross-border permit. Note, those are just alternative options. If you want to drive the entire route in Slovenia, you definitely can.


Renting a Car in Slovenia

We recommend using the Discovercars.com car rental reservation platform to search for and book car rentals in Slovenia. This easy-to-use booking platform compares car rental deals from 500+ trusted providers, so that you can choose the best option for your trip.

Tip: If you can only drive automatic transmission cars, as opposed to manual transmission cars (stick shift), book your car rental as early as possible.

Ljubljana Open Kitchen, Slovenia

Day 1: Arrive in Ljubljana

Capital of Slovenia

Every trip to Slovenia ought to start and end in Ljubljana. Slovenia’s capital is an approachable city that is best discovered on foot.

As you wander the city’s streets, you’ll notice that Ljubljana is heavily influenced by Viennese and Venetian architecture, resulting in a delightful fusion. To get acquainted with the city center, join a walking tour.

We love returning to Ljubljana. Many cities in Europe feel like an overwhelming “to-do” list. Ljubljana, by contrast, feels like a “to-be” list. You’ll feel compelled to simply enjoy yourself.

For us, that means hopping between wine bars and cafés along the Ljubljanica River, visiting shops, and hiking up to Castle Hill with an ice cream in hand.

So, in the name of enjoying yourself, here are our favorite epicurean things to do in Ljubljana, city of dragons.


Open Kitchen

Open Kitchen is a food market that takes place every Friday from March until November. The market features 30 different vendors, including local wine shops, restaurants, and tourist farms.

Tip for wine lovers: go to the J&B Vinoteka stand. J&B is a specialty wine shop in Ljubljana that sells natural and orange wines. Unfortunately, the shop isn’t a wine bar (we hope they open one soon!), so this is your chance to savor some of Slovenia’s most mind-blowing orange wines. Start with the Sun Drops, 2013 by Vino Suman / Suman Wines.

Opening Hours: 10 am – 9 pm, Fridays only
Location: Pogačar Square


Wine Bar Šuklje

Šuklje is an all-around great wine bar in Ljubljana. To start, they offer exceptional wine flights, including a regional flight featuring wines from the Vipava Valley and Goriška Brda.

Because Šuklje is located on the pedestrian Breg street, you can choose between their sunny outdoor seating area or their elegant interior.

Opening Hours: 9 am – 12 am from Monday to Thursday | 9 am  – 1 am on Fridays and Saturdays | 9 am – 11 pm on Sundays
Address: Breg 10, 1000 Ljubljana

Piran Harbor, Slovenia

Day 2: Piran

Ljubljana - Piran

On Day 2 of your two week Slovenia itinerary, you’ll drive 1:30 hours to Piran.


Parking in Piran

Piran is a pedestrian city, so you’ll need to park before entering the town. There are clear road signs directing drivers to the parking structures. We parked in the upper parking lot. The fee structure is 1.70 EUR per hour. You can pay with cash or a credit card.

There’s a free bus that connects the parking lot to the town, however, it’s only a 10-15 minute walk, so there’s no need to wait for the bus.


Best Things to Do in Piran

Picture-perfect Piran (Pirano) is a seaside town on the Adriatic Coast. With its Venetian-gothic architecture and coastal charm, Piran will capture your heart in no time at all.

After parking, walk down the hill and follow the promenade into town. The walkway will wrap around a small harbor, filled with fishing boats.

From here, you’ll see the marvelous pastel-colored Tartini Square. When we arrived, there was a folk festival taking place in the square.

Next, continue the walk along the seaside to the tip of the peninsula, marked by the iconic Our Lady of Health church (Cerkev Marije Zdravja).

When you’re hungry, head to Fritolin pri Cantini for lunch. Situated in a delightful 1st May Square tucked away from the sea, this bustling outdoor café serves freshly grilled and fried seafood. We ordered the grilled sea bass and grilled calamari. They were both worth the wait.

After lunch, walk up to bell tower of St. George (2 EUR entrance fee) for sweeping views of Piran. Next, head to the medieval fortress walls for more enchanting views of the city (also 2 EUR entrance fee).

Now, it’s time to wander aimlessly through Piran’s maze-like streets. For dinner, head to the seafood restaurant Pri Mari.


Stay 1 Night in Piran

Each accommodation in Piran handles parking differently. We recommend contacting your hotel in advance, so you know where to park and how to pay.

Budget | Piraneska is a recently renovated guesthouse located near the main square of Piran.

Midrange | MEMENTO is an aesthetically pleasing and tastefully designed bed and breakfast in Piran. Breakfast is included.

Luxury | Hotel Piran is a seaside hotel dating back to 1913 and located in the old center of Piran, very close to Tartini Square. Guests have access to a spa and wellness center and an on-site restaurant. But, the real treat is the hotel’s rooftop terrace (during summer). Breakfast is included. Hotel Piran offers a 50% discount on parking in the parking house Fornače, when you pay the parking fee at the hotel reception.

Look for accommodation in Piran.

 
Tolmin Gorge, Triglav National Park, Slovenia

Days 3 and 4: Soča Valley

Piran - Kanal - Tolmin Gorge - Kobarid

Day 3 of your Slovenia road trip will take you to the Soča Valley. As you drive north, make sure to visit Kanal ob Soči, a tiny town with riverside houses and a stone bridge.

If you’re in need of refreshment, head to Ostarija Matija, next to the Neptune fountain in the middle of town.

After visiting Kanal, continue driving up the Soča Valley. You can make a stop at Tolmin Gorge, which is situated at the southernmost tip of Triglav National Park.

If you visit, allow 1:30 hours to walk the circuit path. The entrance fee varies by month. To be perfectly candid, this was a nice-to-do, but certainly not a must-do activity.

On Day 4, continue exploring the Soča Valley and the southwestern Julian Alps.

Learn More: How to Visit Triglav National Park


Best Things to do in Kobarid

Continue the drive to Kobarid, a town in the Soča Valley, south of Bovec. We wrote a post about the top things to do in Kobarid, but here’s an overview:

  • Walk to Slap Kozjak
  • Follow the Kobarid Historical Trail to historical monuments and natural sites.
  • Visit the Kobarid Museum to learn about the region’s WWI history.
  • Eat Tolminc Cheese DOP
  • Hike the Koseč Gorge Loop Trail

We’re partial to staying on farms, and Tourist Farm Kranjc is an exemplary example of what a farm stay is all about. The family is extremely welcoming. The home-cooked dinner and the breakfast buffet were exceptional.

Adults-Only Chalets | Perched high above Kobarid and Soča Valley, the one-of-a-kind Nebesa Chalets are four modern 1-bedroom chalets with floor-to-ceiling windows, kitchenettes, and private bathrooms.

Upper Martuljek Waterfall, Zgornji Martuljkov slap, Northern Julian Alps, Slovenia

Day 5 and 6: Kranjska Gora

Kobarid - Bovec - Kranjska Gora

After a soul- and belly-filling breakfast at Tourist Farm Kranjc, your road trip continues north.

You can drive to Kranjska Gora via Vršič Pass, or the Fusine Lakes.


Drive to Kranjska Gora via Vršič Pass (Option 1)

Before setting off today, make sure that the Vršič Pass is open. You can use the Promet website to find out. Vršič pass is the highest road pass in Slovenia and connects Kranjska Gora with Bovec.

The drive from Kobarid continues to the town of Bovec, through the Trenta Valley, and up to Vršič Pass. If you arrive in Bovec around lunch time, we can heartily recommend Gostišče Sovdat for Soča River trout and grilled calamari.

At Vršič Pass, it’s possible to go on a short day hike to Slemenova Špica, which is a grassy hill and lookout point set amidst the dramatic Julian Alps.

The hike should take no more than 3 hours round-trip. You can read more about this hike in our guide to Kranjska Gora.


Drive to Kranjska Gora via Fusine, Italy (Option 2)

Alternatively, it’s possible to circumvent Vršič Pass by driving into Italy. Here’s the route. From Bovec, you’ll drive to Log pod Mangartom and then take the SS54 into Italy.

You may need to purchase a cross-border permit from your rental car company to drive into Italy. Please check. If you opt for this route, you’re in for a big surprise, as this route passes very closely to Laghi di Fusine (Fusine Lakes).

Read this post on how to visit Laghi di Fusine for more details. We spent several hours hiking around these spectacular lakes and up to a mountain hut. The backdrop of the lakes is the Mangart massif, which is part of the Julian Alps.


What to Do in Kranjska Gora

Kranjska Gora is an alpine resort town in northwestern Slovenia, located near the triple border with Austria and Italy. As the northern gateway to the Julian Alps, this alpine town has a lot to offer in terms of hiking, cycling, and casual strolling.

During our stay, you can hike to Slemenova Špica, Martuljek waterfalls, and the Peričnik Waterfall in nearby Vrata Valley.

You can also bike to Zelenci Nature Reserve, sample the tasting menu of Milka Boutique Hotel, and walk to the Tamar mountain hut.

Days 7 and 8: Pokljuka Plateau and Lake Bled

Blissfully rural and tucked away from Slovenia’s tourist attractions, Pokljuka Plateau is an optimal destination to relax and slow down.

There are many ways to enjoy your day in Pokljuka. You can take leisurely walks around the charming high-elevation hamlets of Podjelje and Koprivnik v Bohinju.

If you’re visiting Slovenia in July and August and you’re crowd-averse, you may want to stay on Pokljuka.

Also, if you want to do a lot of hiking in the Julian Alps from Pokljuka, try to stay somewhere close to the Rudno Polje trailhead. The best options, in terms of location, are Hotel Pokljuka and Hotel Center Pokljuka.

More options: Vila Triglav on Pokljuka (apartments and glamping cabins) and Zalin planinski raj (2-bedroom cabin).

Look for accommodation in Pokljuka.
