Overnight: Family owned pension at the heart of Bled, D
Day 2-3: Glacier Lakes Of Bled And Bohinj And Surroundings
We will have two full days to explore the beautiful Gorenjska region. The journey will begin in Bled, which is one of the most stunning places in Slovenia with its lake and the church on the island in the middle. We can visit the island by traditional “Pletna” boat. Bled Castle on the cliff above offers superb views on the lake, and there will be plenty of opportunities to capture landscape photos from this vantage. The nearby Lake Bohinj is also a glacier-made body like Bled, but as it is located in the heart of Julian Alps it provides a very different setting. After a brief stop to try some canoeing on the lake, we will head to the picturesque Savica waterfall. From there, we will pass through many picturesque small traditional-style villages on our way to the stunning Vintgar Gorge. Finally, after a long day of photographing we will grab some of Bled’s famous “kremšnita” cream cake, and renew our energy levels.
Overnight: Family owned pension at the heart of Bled, BD
Day 4-5: Soca River Valley And Triglav National Park
Our way will take us to the highest mountain pass in Julian Alps, Vrsic; its pinnacle affords beautiful views of the highest Slovenian mountains, and as we descend to the south we will meet the emerald waters of the So?a River. The river and its valley will be our base for the next two days as we explore all the hidden corners of the area which offers numerous gorges, waterfalls, WWI remnants, and much more. The keen wildlife photographers can try their luck with Alpine Ibex, this wild mountain goat is the king of the Julian Alps. From here, we will take a trip to the highest Slovenian road to the Mangrt Saddle which is over 2000m high.
Overnight: Family run hotel at Bovec area, BD
Day 6-7: Ljubljana And Surroundings
From the Alps, we will drive to Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Ljubljana is a charming city where everything is within walking distance. The city offers an array of cuisine, you can dine at traditional “gostilna” (guest house), eat at a fine French restaurant, or enjoy delicious Italian fare. In three days we will cover all the city’s highlights: the Baroque churches, the lively outdoor marketplace, the Ljubljana Castle, romantic Ljubljanica river, and the masterpieces of renowned Slovenian architect Joze Plecnik. We will make a half day trip to Volcji Potok Arboretum where the Spring exhibit will be taking place. The park is overflowing with a variety of flowers and trees, and is especially beautiful in May. After a long day of snapping, it’d be great to have a local beer along the Ljubljanica promenade.
Overnight: Hotel in the Ljubljana city centre, BD
Day 8: Departure From Ljubljana
After the breakfast check out from the hotel. Transfer to the airport of Ljubljana.
