This amazing family adventure holiday is based in Kranjska Gora, at the foot of the Julian Alps and minutes away from the Austrian and Italian borders. Formerly part of Yugoslavia, Slovenia has much more in common with its Alpine neighbours than Eastern Europe. Based at a comfortable hotel with a swimming pool, we spend the week enjoying a variety of activities. On our first full day we hike up to the Martulk Waterfall, taking lunch in a mountain hut en route. Then, after mountain biking to the Italian lakes, we return to Kranjska Gora in time for a fun descent of the summer toboggan. No visit to Slovenia would be complete without a visit to Bled and its picturesque lake, where we manage to get our adrenaline fix at the new 'high ropes' park! After a day to rest and enjoy the scenery, or experiment with other activities in Kranjska Gora, we drive over the Julian Alps via the dramatic Vrsic Pass. After lunch in the pretty town of Bovec, there's an optional rafting trip on the Soca River. A chance to try out some easy rock climbing and an afternoon spent walking to Jasna Lake, conclude this fantastic family adventure in Slovenia. This is a family adventure holiday with the ideal mix of activities and free time.
