DAY 1: Welcome!
Transfer from Venice Airport to Bled, followed by welcome drink and dinner.
DAY 2: Bled, the jewel of Slovenia

DAY 3: Bohinj, in the Alps' embrace
Drive to Bohinj lake and take the cable car up to 1500 meters (5000 ft) for one of the best views of the Slovenian Alps. After returning to the valley below, taste the local goodies at a traditional cheese maker.
DAY 4: The underground and the sea
Upon leaving the mountains, we will start the day with a visit to one of Slovenia’s highlights, the famous Postojna cave. After a photo stop at Predjama castle, continue towards the Adriatic sea with a visit to our most beautiful coastal town, Piran. After dinner, check in at the hotel and enjoy the sun setting over the Adriatic at Portoroz.
DAY 5: Exploring the coastal region
Today, you will visit some of the less-known parts of the coastal region of Slovenia, namely the salt pans and the picturesque hills overlooking the valley bordering Croatia to the South. Enjoy dinner in this peaceful region.
DAY 6: The horses, the wine, the capital
Our way to the capital, Ljubljana, will take us to the famous Lipizzaner stables and to a local vinery where snacks will accompany our wine-tasting. Upon arrival to Ljubljana, we will explore the old town on foot, before checking-in at a hotel (within walking distance of the old town).
DAYS 7 through 10: Find your roots!
These 4 days are available for genealogy research, facilitated by your Tip Leader, who will arrange the visit to the archives and optional transportation to the regions of your ancestors.* On day 8, we will go for a dinner with local music and folklore dancing in Ljubljana. On day 10, there will be the option of taking an optional tour to Idrija, the town of the world-famous mercury mine and hand-made lace. This will be followed by our farewell dinner.
