Tour description provided by World Expeditions

Beginning in Ljubljana, this active European adventure for travellers in their 20s and 30s takes the paths less travelled through Slovenia. Home to a mosaic of landscapes, including parts of the Alps, the Dinaric Alps, the Pannonian Plain, and the Mediterranean, Slovenia’s stunning vistas manage to captivate explorers from all corners of the globe. There’s no shortage of activities in the itinerary as we rock climb in the village of Bohinjska Bela, canyon and white water raft on the Soca River, cycle on a self-guided route through authentic vineyards and farm towns, and embark on a caving exploration in the Karst region. It’s then on to the capital city of Ljubljana to discover the numerous historic streets and squares and to experience the vibrant night life in the company of your fellow Yomads travellers.

Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive Ljubljana
On arrival in Ljubljana you will be met and transferred to the hostel. A trip briefing will be held by a local representative where you'll meet your fellow Yomads travellers and learn more about Slovenia, the trip and suggestions for exploring Ljubljana and its vibrant night life.
Day 2 Train to Lake Bled, afternoon rock climbing
In the morning take a train to Ljubljana-Lesce Bled. On arrival, transfer to Lake Bled where you'll have free time to explore the area before rock climbing in the afternoon at Bohinjska Bela. Return to Bled for overnight and dinner at leisure.
Day 3 Day trip to Soca Valley for canyoning and white water rafting
In store for today is a full day excursion to Bovec in the Soca Valley where you experience both canyoning and white water rafting on the Soca River. In the evening, return to Bled and explore the town at leisure.
Day 4 Morning at leisure, train to Karst region
The morning is free for you to continue exploring Bled at your own pace. Hire a boat and explore the lake and island or cycle; the choice is yours. Later in the afternoon take a train to the Karst region. On arrival transfer to your accommodation for this evening, a beautiful stone building oozing with character.
Day 5 Cycle through Karst region, approx. 20 kms
The unique landscape of this region lends itself to cycling. You will be provided with a bike and maps to self guide your way past vineyards and sleepy villages to a farmhouse for lunch before returning to your hostel in the evening.
Day 6 Caving, train transfer to Ljubljana
The morning is reserved for exploring a cave in the Karst region. Under the instruction of a guide who will carry the necessary equipment for the day, you will experience the thrill of exploring a cave the way the explorers did - without the benefit of platforms and rails. Alternative activities are also available. In the afternoon, transfer to Ljubljana by train and spend the evening at your leisure.
Day 7 Trip concludes Ljubljana
After breakfast the trip concludes and you are free to continue your journey on your own. Transfers can be arranged for those headed to the airport.
