Day 2 - Bled activities

You will determine how you want your first full day in the Alps to unfold. A hike up the Ojstrica Hill will offer an incredible view of Lake Bled while hiking through the Vintgar Gorge is a whole other experience. If you are up for something more adrenaline-inducing, you can go kayaking on the Sava River or ziplining.

And if you opt for a relaxing day at the spa, you can chill beside the pools while your kids slide down the waterslides.

Day 3 - Lake Bled

Your family holidays in Slovenia are well underway! And again, the choice of how to continue is yours. If you wish to explore Lake Bled even more intimately, a rowboat or a SUP rental is a great way to do it.

Otherwise, the nearby summer sledding track and adventure park are two spots your children will be thrilled to visit. Even a visit to the Dino Park at Bled might intrigue your youngest.

But if you wish to explore the surroundings together, there is no better option than renting some bikes and taking them for a tour amidst the Julian Alps.

Day 4 - Bohinj

Your day will begin with a scenic drive through the Sava Bohinjka Valley and past the traditional Alpine villages. Lake Bohinj is tucked away in a colorful corner of the Julian Alps, and the whole area will stun you with its charm.

The region offers all sorts of activities, and you can either opt for a hike up the gorgeous Voje Valley and Mostnica Gorge or take a cable car up to Mount Vogel and delight in the magnificent views of the lake and the valley sprawled underneath.

Day 5 - Lake Bohinj

As we already mentioned, Bohinj is a place of opportunities, and there is no way one day could be enough to experience it to the fullest. The whole day is set aside for an activity or multiple activities you decide on.

You can go hiking in the Julian Alps to discover the scenic mountain pastures or cycling to take advantage of the well-maintained bike path through the valley. Lake activities include canoeing, kayaking, or paddle boarding.

And for the most adventurous families, we offer you a chance to go paragliding or canyoning.

Day 6 - Alpine Valleys around Kranjska Gora

Your penultimate day will be packed with action, starting with a drive through the Radovna Valley toward Kranjska Gora. You will make a stop along the way as you drive to the end of Vrata Valley to see the majestic Mt. Triglav and its northern face. But the main attraction will surely be the breathtaking Peričnik Waterfall.

Subsequently, you will visit the Planica Nordic Center to see the second-largest ski jump in the world. You will also find yourself enchanted by the beautiful Tamar Valley.

You can also opt for a zipline that takes you from the top of the ski jump to the valley floor.

Day 7 - Kranjska Gora

It would be a shame not to take the utmost advantage of a day in the sports hub of Kranjska Gora. The surrounding hills and mountains offer lots of hiking options appropriate for children. If you prefer renting a bike, you can ride to the spring of the Sava Dolinka River, Zelenci Nature Reserve.

For the more adventurous families, there is a downhill bike trail close at hand and a summer sledding track next to it.

And if you feel like it, you can relax in Kranjska Gora. You might be inclined to take a walk to Lake Jasna to dip your legs in the cold water and enjoy the scenery.

After that, we can arrange an airport transfer for you.

We prepared an abundance of fun activities for you and your children to choose from, so we can tailor these Slovenia family holidays to your wishes. You can have an active week of cycling, hiking, and exploring the hidden corners of the Julian Alps.

If you prefer to turn it up a notch, you can try the more adventurous options such as ziplining, canyoning, or paragliding.

And if you want to take a breather? That is fine too! Have a relaxing day at the beach of Lake Bled or Lake Bohinj. You can even rent a rowboat and watch your children have a blast jumping from it.

You are the one who knows your kids’ wishes, and we are here to open up these possibilities for you. The opportunities are numerous.

Additionally, you will see all the main sights adorning Slovenia’s Alpine landscape. Your kids will be in awe of the mighty and mysterious Bled Castle and crane their necks to see the top of the Planica ski jump. With all the unforgettable experiences in the Julian Alps, there is hardly a better place for them to visit.

Nobody has a more stressful job when planning a getaway than parents, and we know it. Therefore, we coordinate everything during these holidays, from accommodations to transportation and all rentals. We want you to focus solely on one thing: having fun.

And if anything goes amiss, you can always contact our support, and we will solve the issue in no time.

The Julian Alps are ready to admit you in their loving embrace. Join us on these adventurous family holidays in Slovenia and explore the coveted treasures of our diverse landscape.

Family Types

Customize your time in Slovenia with kids by looking into different activities we can arrange for you based on what kind of family you are and what you prefer.

Family with Small Children & Babies

As this might be your first holiday with a small child, we want to make it as hassle-free as possible. As babies tend to get tired fast, the activities will be short, and we will consider nap time when designing your itinerary. You will tell us what you feel comfortable doing, and we will stick to lighter activities. You will also have an option of a car seat and baby carriage per request.

Family with Kids Aged 6-12

We all know how much energy kids between ages 6 and 12 have, and we will ensure they take advantage of it. We prepared an abundance of outdoor activities you can choose from, including visits to adventure parks, water parks, and tourist farms where they can feed farm animals or try horseback riding.

Family with Teenagers

Teenagers are a tricky age group, but we have prepared an abundant selection of activities for them. Each of them will find something to look forward to doing in Slovenia. Take them hiking, canyoning, cycling, or rafting, and let them explore their adventurous spirits!

Big Family or More Families

We adapt our tours to the number of your family members, allowing you to fully enjoy your holidays without any troubles concerning the organization. Even if you are a big family or multiple families traveling together, we will accommodate your group accordingly. We can arrange bus transfers, entire houses or villas for accommodation, and group activities.

Things to know

Travel Types

Guided

We will provide a local guide to accompany you on your daily activities to ensure you get the optimal experience in Slovenia. Our guides all regularly work with children and know their way around them. Depending on your itinerary, you will also have private transportation available. We adapt the tour based on your family type, even providing car seats if you need them.

Self-guided

If you prefer to remain the master of your time, our self-guided holidays offer just that. We provide you with a rough plan and some ideas, but in the end, you decide what your family holidays will look like as you go. You will take yourself around Slovenia, but we can arrange a car rental or a campervan if you wish. We also take care of all accommodations and remain available for support during your visit.

Mixed

You can also receive the best of both options and enjoy the freedom of self-guided holidays while only getting a guide on certain days to show you around. During your free time, we can still organize activities for you and give you some cues on how to spend it. Otherwise, the time will be entirely yours and your family’s.

Join a group

For families who wish to meet other families with kids and who don’t want to stress about trip planning and would maybe like to enjoy some time on their own as well. You will be travelling with our tour leader in a small group in comfortable transportation with accommodation, entrance fees and a tour leader to look after you. For guaranteed tour departures we have a minimum of 2 families.

Hassle-Free

We handle itineraries, accommodations, and anything else you prefer not to deal with, so you can enjoy a carefree family holiday.

Unbeatable support

Our 24/7 customer support is where we show our passion, bringing you a better experience by making your well-being our number one priority.

100% Made in Slovenia

We are working closely with local suppliers to provide you with unique itineraries on the tours of our own design.

Book with confidence

We are a financially protected company, fully bonded and insured, keeping your money safe and allowing you to travel with confidence.

Completely Customizable

Flexibility is our middle name — whether you want more or less, or just beyond ordinary, we’ll make it happen.
