Slovenia Tours

Slovenia isn’t usually where people consider for a European holiday, but Slovenia tours have a much more authentic, intimate feeling that will leave you thankful you booked a tour here. This small country, bordering Italy, Austria, Hungary, and Croatia, is a wonderful destination for exploring by foot or bike. Slovenia is full of friendly people, great food and wine, beautiful mountains, and lush forests. No matter what you end up doing or how much time you have, Slovenia tours will leave you wanting to come back for more!

When is the Best Time to Visit Slovenia?

As with many European countries, the best time to visit Slovenia is during the summer months of June to August, as you will experience warmer temperatures, pleasant weather, a fully open tourist infrastructure, and plenty of activities to take part in. The only downside to travelling to Slovenia at this time is that it coincides with the peak tourism season, meaning that you will encounter plenty of other visitors and might end up paying higher prices.

Another option to explore if you are looking for the best time to visit Slovenia is the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn, as you will most definitely encounter fewer volumes of travellers. Weather conditions during these times are also generally good, although you can expect slightly cooler temperatures and more precipitation. For those planning to head up into the Julian Alps, make sure that your trip is planned for before the cutoff when many mountain huts close for the winter season.

Lastly, the best time to visit Slovenia for those who are after a winter wonderland getaway is during the winter months of December to March. During this time temperatures will be much colder; however, you will be able to fully experience the ski resorts and charming villages that come alive during this time.

Where to Travel in Slovenia

When it comes to choosing where to travel in Slovenia, there are a few great options that provide access to exhilarating outdoor adventures. Here are a few of the most popular destinations travellers choose when deciding upon where to travel in Slovenia:

Frequently Asked Questions About Slovenia

How many days do you need to visit Slovenia?

Many people choose to base their trip in Ljubljana when visiting Slovenia, as the capital city has many options for accommodations and day trips to surrounding regions.

What is the most beautiful part of Slovenia?

While the Adriatic Coast is very scenic, many travellers consider the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park to be the most beautiful part of Slovenia.

Do they speak English in Slovenia?

While it is not an official language, there is a very high number of English speakers in Slovenia, especially when compared to other European countries.

Is Slovenia cheap to visit?

Although there are plenty of high end resorts, expensive hotels, and fancy restaurants in Slovenia, it is also a great country for travellers on a budget, especially when compared to more popular countries in Western Europe.

Slovenia Tour Highlights

Mount Triglav

At an elevation of 2864m above sea level, Mount Triglav is the tallest peak in Slovenia and is the highest within the Julian Alps. The mountain can be found within Triglav National Park and is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts looking to ascend its rocky and rugged summit. Towards the end of the 19th Century there was still a glacier located just below the summit that measured roughly 99 acres; however, it continued to shrink in the following decades and measured just 37 acres in 1946. As of 2019 the Triglav Glacier had shrunk so much that it is no longer considered to be a glacier.

Soča Valley

The Soča Valley, also known as the Isonzo Valley, is a 138 kilometer river valley in northwestern Slovenia that is home to the Soča/Isonzo River. It is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts thanks to the river’s emerald green waters and the surrounding alpine landscape. The Soča Valley was an important site in the First World War, as it was situated along the border of the Italian and Austro-Hungarian empires and hosted a number of major battles, including the 12 battles of the Isonzo.
