SLOVENIA DESTINATION GUIDE

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Slovenia in a way like no other. Wedged between the snowy Julian Alps and a slice of Adriatic coastline, Slovenia is a tiny country layered in natural beauty. You’ll find rivers and caves woven through the landscape, while 60 per cent of the land is covered in forests, making it one of the greenest countries on earth. It’s easy to connect with nature when you visit Slovenia, and you’ll find a land that is respected and preserved, with more than 1,200,000 trees planted annually, 24,000 animal species, and 36 per cent of the country designated as protected areas. When you're not spellbound by glittering Lake Bled and emerald forests, set your sights on the country’s architectural treasures. Our Slovenia tours also connect you to the local culture, taking you to diverse museums, Gothic churches and medieval Ljubljana Castle, and letting you experience daily life in a traditional Slovenian village tucked away in the trees. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
