Let’s get one thing straight. This is not a city break. This is a wilderness retreat. 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 coding for canyoning through the Bohinj Valley and to swap your banking for glamping in hot tub lovin’ luxury. Tune your eyes to lush greens and sparkling blues, and prepare for a back-to-nature getaway well and truly off the tourist radar. Already set to be a go-to destination for 2017, become a trendsetting Flashpacker and discover Slovenia before the tourists descend.

  • Explore Ljubljana on a guided tour of the capital
  • See the sights of Ljubljana on a 5 Bridges Boat Tour
  • Enjoy a street feast at the Ljubljana Open Kitchen
  • Paddle board across the mythical beauty of Lake Bled
  • Stay in lakeside glamping huts with hot tubs and doorstep delivered breakfast baskets
  • Go canyoning through the twists and turns of the Bohinj Valley
  • Get back to nature with a lakeside walk around Lake Bohinj
  • Recharge your batteries in remote locations off the beaten path

Itinerary

Day 1: A lovely jubbly tour of Ljubljana

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, prepare to check out the sights of Ljubljana on a guided tour though this vibrant city. From the charming streets of its Old Town to its hilltop castle, enjoy this compact hub of culture before jumping aboard a river boat. We promised all things water-based after all so float beneath beautiful bridges and cruise past the scenic sights. It’s then time for some food, Slovenia style. The Open Kitchen can be found every Friday in the Central Market, where all the best of Ljubljana cuisine is sizzling away in one place. Watch on as your meal is cooked before you, then enjoy a lively street feast in the heart of this small yet buzzing capital.

Day 2: Some bleddy good paddle boarding

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. Once you’ve conquered the paddle board, your Bled-side bedside comes in the form of triangular glamping huts. Complete with spacious hot tubs and beautifully peaceful surroundings, you can get back to nature in true heated luxury.

Day 3: Kickass Canyoning through the Bohinj Valley

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. After giving Bear Grylls a run for his money, enjoy a hearty lunch before an afternoon of lakeside walking. It’s then time to return to your Lake Bled glamping huts, those hut tubs have never seemed so inviting.

Important notes

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 2pm so that you can stretch out one last morning by Lake Bled.
