Scenic Lakes of Slovenia
Day 1 UK - Ljubljana - Bled
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Ljubljana. On arrival we transfer to the village of Bled, where our base and location for dinner for the next seven nights is the Hotel Park (4-star).
Day 2 Bled - Triglav National Park
We begin with an orientation walk around Bled, a delightful part of Slovenia. The glacial Lake Bled, surrounded by mountains and forests, forms part of the Julian Alps. At its western end is the iconic Bled Island, home to a striking 15th century church. Our included excursion is to Triglav National Park, where we may catch a glimpse of Mount Triglav, its highest peak reaching over 2,800 metres. Joining the Italian and Austrian Alps, this beautiful natural wonderland is home to many endemic plants such as Triglav Hawkesbeard and the Julian Poppy. If we are lucky we may spot ibex or red deer drinking from crystal clear waters. We return to the hotel for dinner.
Day 3 Bled
A day at leisure. Or why not enjoy a ‘Taste of Slovenia’ optional excursion to take a boat cruise on the emerald River Soca, through an alpine valley.
Day 4 Bled
Join an optional excursion to Postojna Cave - an impressive cave system, where the stalagmites and stalactites create beautiful naturally occurring patterns - and Predjama Castle, standing defiant and impenetrable 123 metres up a cliff. Or, alternatively, take a ‘Trieste and Lipica Stud Farm’ trip to visit the Italian port loved by James Joyce and see the world-famous Lipizzaner horses.
Day 5 Bled
Join an optional guided excursion to the Slovenian capital. Ljubljana’s history can be traced back into the mists of time however it is one of Europe’s youngest capital cities, instated in 1991 with the independence of Slovenia. The funicular ride up to Ljubljana Castle is also included in this excursion.
