Combine Slovenia with Austria

Day 1 AIRPORT – VIENNA

Arrival to Vienna airport. This will give you the chance to explore this royal Austrian capital, the palaces, the music, the food. We’ll organize a typical carriage ride for you and a dinner with a view and a typical Vienna dessert. It will be your perfect European city escape before going into the unknown beautiful parts of this summer land & cruise trip in Croatia & Slovenia.

Cultural holidays in Slovenia, Ljubljana

Day 2 VIENNA – LJUBLJANA

From one capital to the other one. Smaller but also enchanting. For the summer time, of course, besides the private tour that will be included for you, don’t miss the chance to chill in one of many cafés by the river in the old town of Ljubljana. We can combine the experience with a dinner in the best restaurant in Ljubljana found in a castle tower overlooking the city.

Day 3 LJUBLJANA – LAKE BLED – SOČA RIVER VALLEY

Summer in Slovenia is all about being active. From Ljubljana you’ll go to the Alpine region and to Slovenian pearl – Lake Bled. Here you’ll take a private traditional boat ride “pletna” to the island in the middle of the lake. There you’ll go up the stairs all the way to the historic church where you’ll ring a bell to make all your wishes come true…

In the afternoon you’ll continue across scenic Vršič pass to Soča River valley. Vršič is the highest pass in Slovenia built during the Second World War and still in use today. From there expect to have the most beautiful views of the Slovenian biggest Triglav National Park when the curvy road takes you way up and then down again on the other side.

Day 4-5 SOČA RIVER VALLEY – ŠKOCJAN CAVES – OPATIJA

In Soča River valley you’ll have a couple of days to do some sport activities. From easier hiking and biking to more active and adrenaline filled kayaking, rafting and canyoning. Or go way up into the sky by zip lining, paragliding, sky diving or even bungee jumping. This is the place to do that in Slovenia, in the Balkans and yes, in Europe as well.

On the way to Croatia you will stop in Škocjan caves. One of many Slovenian caves but very unique and special. These caves are UNESCO protected, they have the deepest underground canyon in Europe and this is where the speleology started. Not only you’ll get the best possible view of the underground world – you’ll also see the historical paths carved into the walls that will make you dizzy just looking at them.

Day 6 PRIVATE CRUISE FROM OPATIJA TO ZADAR

After the active days in Slovenia it is time for you to relax and to enjoy the classical summer activities in Croatia. Opt for a traditional gullet boat, a yacht, a sailing experience or a deluxe cruise – these days are going to be all about discovering the hidden, the private, the exclusive beaches of Croatian coastline.

Day 11 ZADAR – KRKA NATIONAL PARK - SPLIT

In Zadar you’ll get cultural. It is the Roman town in Croatia, full of medieval churches and cosmopolitan cafes. It is not too crowded and here you can’t miss the organs played by the sea itself. On the way towards Split you’ll stop in Krka National Park protected already since 1985 where you’ll be able to refresh in the waterfalls.

Day 12 SPLIT – DUBROVNIK

Split is a lively city full of UNESCO sights, GOT movie location sights, Roman remains and of course the sea. You will have a private tour to get to know all the most important parts of it. The most beautiful sights. And since you will get a local guide – you’ll get a unique view into all the secrets of the town. From here you’ll continue to the Dalmatian jewel – Dubrovnik.

Day 13 DUBROVNIK – BOSNIA / MONTENEGRO – DUBROVNIK

There are many day trips you can do from Dubrovnik to Bosnia or Montenegro. Or just stay one more extra day in Dubrovnik, of course. But opting for a daily trip will give you that view of how other ex-Yugoslavian countries look like.

Summer land & cruise trip, Montenegro

In Bosnia, you can visit the Christian pilgrimage sight – Medugorje or the iconic bridge and mosque of Mostar where you can, if you dare, jump or just stroll around the streets and observe the Ottoman influence in this region. Don’t forget to taste the typical Bosnian baklava or salty burek.

If you decide for Montenegro, there’s no place like St. Stefan if you want a true luxurious experience. It is a fortified island village connected to the mainland only by a narrow path. The 15th-century villas, impeccable sand beach and turquoise water will leave you speechless. Plus, this is definitely the most photogenic spot in all Montenegro so do let us know if you need a private photographer with you.
