And you won’t short of adventure here either, with an array of outdoor activities to choose from, including hiking, skiing, kayaking and paragliding!

The country, bordered by Austria, Italy, Croatia and Hungary, is home to the infamous Lake Bled, in the Julian Alps of the Upper Carniolan region in the north-west. This landmark turquoise lake promises awe-inspiring views on your Slovenia holiday, with the snow-capped mountains and idyllic waters. You’ll also find more than 300 waterfalls across the country!
The town of Bled, home to the gorgeous glacial lake, is a popular tourist destination, offering beautiful views of the 2,120 metres long and 1,380 metres wide natural beauty. In summer, gorgeous views, surrounded by impressive mountains can be enjoyed here, while the lake gets covered idyllically in ice in the colder, winter months.
