After getting comfortable and settling in Ljubljana, you will begin by exploring the city’s Old Town. Deemed Europe’s Green Capital in 2016, Ljubljana has several kid-friendly features, such as a car-free city center, numerous parks with playgrounds, and well-maintained bike paths.

We want to make the sightseeing as engaging as possible for your children. Today will include a funicular ride to visit Ljubljana Castle and a boat ride through the city on the Ljubljanica River. You will enjoy a stunning view of the entire city from castle hill and experience Ljubljana from a different perspective on a boat.
If you have energy left at the end of these activities, we will organize a fun bike tour around the city to visit the places you have not seen yet. We can adapt the plan to your kids’ ages, of course.

Have you ever taken your kids to a ZOO? It is always a good idea, and Ljubljana’s ZOO is as good as any other. Seeing elephants, seals, a lion, and more, while licking an ice cream has a fun day written all over it. You can combine the visit to the ZOO with a light hike in Tivoli Park and Rožnik Hill.
If the weather turns bad, you can visit the Museum of Illusions or the Natural History Museum instead. Your kids will have to choose: a mammoth skeleton or a room that seems to be spinning even though it is not.
You can end your day with a ride on the Urban Electric Train to see the last bits of Ljubljana before you leave.

For your last day, we will adapt the schedule according to the time of your flight back home. Given enough remaining time, you can see some things or do some activities you missed the previous days.
Not enough? Why not spend a few more days here! Extend your holidays with a pre- or post-holiday extension. Accommodation, sightseeing, and activities can be arranged. Add as many extra days to your holiday as you wish.
Family holidays in Ljubljana are the ideal break you can take with your children in a European capital rich with tradition and kid-friendly features, such as green parks with playgrounds and a car-free city center.
As a relatively small capital, the city is never as crowded as some of the bigger European cities. Nonetheless, Ljubljana’s history stretches back to Roman and medieval times. Its architecture speaks of it without words.
Located right in the center of Slovenia, Ljubljana is a great starting point if you wish to explore the whole country. But the city itself offers plenty of entertainment. A funicular ride allows you to visit Ljubljana Castle and a boat ride along Ljubljanica River takes you through the capital’s Old Town.
Your kids will fawn over the variety of animals in the ZOO and have their mouths fall to the floor upon a visit to the Museum of Illusions. After everything you will experience, you can visit one of the various restaurants. Ljubljana is a gastronome’s paradise, with different restaurants serving everything from local delicacies to food from around the world.
These Ljubljana family holidays include a leisurely plan, but we can adapt it to your preferences. We will also find the best possible accommodation for you, reserve the tickets to the places you want to visit and offer you 24/7 support during your stay.
Visit the European Green Capital of 2016 yourself, and see just how unforgettable family holidays in Slovenia can be!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
We calculate the price for the whole family and not per person. Our final package price already includes all the discounted activities and entrance fees for kids that you would otherwise encounter on your family holidays.
We have no limit on the age of your kids, but we make sure to cater to your needs, given how old your child is.
Our family tours are entirely flexible and don’t target one specific age group. We adapt to any family type, designing the family holidays in a way to be entertaining for you and your kids.
They will pay the adult price and won’t receive entry discounts, but we will still adapt your itinerary to make it fun for the whole family.
As much as you want! We pride ourselves on our holidays being completely customizable so that you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. We always consult you on what kind of activities you want to do. These holidays are about you, after all!
We include anything you want, from the accommodation to the transfers and entrance fees, and calculate our final price based on that. Things can also always be added at the last minute if you want. One thing that will cost you extra is cancellation insurance, though.
We keep our options open to offer you the best possible solution. We are in constant contact with multiple local accommodation providers to see if they are available. Some hotels can be limited to family rooms, meaning the kids would have to sleep on fold-out beds. Therefore, we also provide an option of private apartments (we can also organize a breakfast delivery in some areas).
Excluding breakfast, we don’t generally include meals in our holiday packages. We make sure to include lunch breaks and some suggestions on where you can get the best taste of the local cuisine. The restaurants usually offer meals for kids.
If you have any allergies or dietary requirements, you can let us know in advance.
Of course! You decide how you want to spend your holidays. We can even arrange activities just for kids so that parents can take a break.
Your daily itinerary will run at a family-friendly pace that will be adapted to your family type and keep traveling time between locations down to a minimum.
Yes! We even offer an optional nanny or an animator for your kids so that you can go for a quiet romantic dinner or a wine tasting, for example.
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.
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.
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.
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.
