Paddle-board across Lake Bled and canyon and hike through the ravines of the Bohinj Valley. Stay in unique lakeside glamping huts, with hot tubs, camp fires and breakfast baskets. Take a bar-crawl through Ljubljana, and tuck into traditional Slovenian cuisine. Get back to nature with an immersive weekend in this off-radar corner of Europe

 

Let’s get one thing straight. This is not a city break. This is a wilderness weekend. It’s a battery-charging, fresh air-filling, water-plunging escape to the wild beauty of Slovenia. In true Flashpacking style, there’s some interesting culture thrown in too, but the purpose of this trip is to free you from the stuffy confines of office life. To swap your board meeting for paddle-boarding across Lake Bled, to swap your corporate deadlines for canyoning through the Bohinj Valley and to swap your banking for glamping in hot tub-lovin’ luxury. Here, you’ll discover a fairy tale-style church in the middle of Lake Bled, and drink in rolling views from the striking castle, above. We’ll be getting rough and tough with alpine canyoning, as we abseil down waterfalls and swim through fresh mountain streams. We’ll glide across serene turquoise waters, and wallow in hot tubs, amid the woody plumes of a nearby campfire. This is a wild retreat for those of you wanting a slice of outdoor adventure, with a lively Ljubljana bar crawl and charming glamping huts to call home.  Tune your eyes to lush greens and sparkling blues, and prepare for a back-to-nature getaway well and truly off the tourist radar. Become a trendsetting Flashpacker and discover Slovenia before the tourists descend.

Itinerary

Day 1: A bar crawl in Ljubljana

Touch down in Slovenia and take an evening bar crawl through the charming streets of Ljubljana. Get to know your new Flash Pack pals over locally-brewed beverages and a slew of Slovenian dishes

 

As soon as you step off your plane in Ljubljana International Airport, put on your shades and prepare to get wet n wild. You’re no ordinary tourist, you’re a fearless Flashpacker ready to step into your private transfer and be whisked off to your central hotel. Once you’ve checked in and freshened up, meet your Pack Leader in your hotel lobby for an evening pub crawl in Ljubljana. Get to know your fellow Flashpackers as you eat and drink your way along its charming traffic-free streets, tasting typical Slovenian cuisine (think thick stews, flat breads and moreish pastries), along with local varieties of wine and beer. Tuck in and fuel up for your wilderness weekend, soaking in the energy of this small yet buzzing capital.

Day 2: Some bleddy good paddle boarding

Travel to Lake Bled and paddle-board across its shimmering surface, in the heart of Slovenia’s fairy tale landscape. Settle in for a night’s glamping in a fleet of lakeside huts with hot tubs

 

Not many mornings can you wake up and say today is the day I will paddle board across Lake Bled, but today is that day. After breakfast at your hotel, your 11am transfer awaits to take you to this enchanting lake. With a turreted church sitting pretty on its central island and lush mountain scenery enclosing it, Lake Bled looks fresh out of a fairy tale (seriously, Google images it). But you Flashpackers aren’t content with just admiring its beauty, you’re getting on it. On a paddle board to be precise, where you can (attempt to) stand up and paddle across its shimmering turquoise surface. Float across the gentle waves to the charming church where you can ascend up the 99 baroque steps to see this 17th century church in all its glory. Be sure to make your way up the clock tower, where legend has it if you ring the bell three times you will be granted one wish. For those of you wishing for an amazing place to stay tonight, your wish is our command. Your Bled-side bedside comes in the form of triangular glamping huts, complete with spacious hot tubs and beautifully peaceful surroundings. Get back to nature in true heated luxury.

Day 3: Canyon through the Bohinj Valley

Wake up in your wilderness huts and head to the stunning Lake Bohinj for a morning of canyoning. Slide and clamber your way through dramatic alpine ravines, then stop for lunch and hike through the lush valley terrain. Grab a lakeside dinner in the local town before retreating to your log cabin campfire 

 

Wake up to a delicious breakfast basket sitting on the doorstep of your snug wooden hut, this is the life. Today your wilderness retreat continues with a day of active pursuits, kicking off with a transfer to Slovenia’s largest lake. And if you thought Lake Bled was beautiful and off the tourist-trodden track, then prepare yourself for its lesser know cousin: Lake Bohinj. Your fresh air-fuelled adventure begins with canyoning through Bohinj Valley, where a hidden network of deep canyons, natural slides and fresh mountain streams can be jumped, slid and swum through on one rugged ride. Embrace the challenge as you abseil and climb your way through the valley, supporting your fellow Flashpackers as you conquer heights and work together as a team. (Click here to read about fitness levels on Flash Pack adventures). Then, after giving Bear Grylls a run for his money, enjoy a hearty lunch before an afternoon spent hiking through the valley. Take in the awesome views across the lakes and get your lungs pumping with the pure lakeside air. Come evening, take your pick of the restaurants surrounding the lake and enjoy a well-deserved dinner – there’s plenty of great pizza here, with Italy so close by. Then return to your Lake Bled glamping huts, those hut tubs have never seemed so inviting. Get the beers in and relax…

Important notes

Fly into and out of Ljubljana International Airport (Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport)

We recommend booking a flight that lands in Ljubljana before 4:30pm on day 1 of your adventure. Do try to make sure your flight out of Ljubljana doesn’t depart till after 3pm so that you can stretch out one last morning by Lake Bled.

Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control. From time to time we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh.
