The afternoon is spent following cross country trails in the local area whilst enjoying the scenery, which is absolutely stunning with alpine vistas in each direction. We return to our accommodation in Bled.
Day 3: This morning is free to explore beautiful Lake Bled and it's surroundings, where a walk of approximately one hour takes you right around the lake. After lunch we depart for the nearby mountain and ski resort of Krvavec. After an introduction to snow-shoeing, we spend an exciting night in an igloo, complete with snow beds, mattresses, sleeping bags and a sauna! Dinner is fondue-style!
Day 4: We wake refreshed after our night in the igloo and enjoy breakfast plus we're sure to be rewarded with more fantastic views. After leaving the Igloo village, we'll take a gondola ride back down to the valley. The afternoon is spent learning to ice climb at Pericnik on a natural rock feature with artificially applied ice. Late afternoon we return to our comfortable accommodation in Lake Bled.
Day 5: Today we are able to spend a full day snowshoeing - a chance to appreciate Slovenia's fantastic mountain scenery. We follow trails either in the valleys or high up on the Plateau of Pokljuka. Snow shoeing is not only one of the best ways to explore the mountains, but great fun as well! In the afternoon we return to our accommodation in Bled in the late afternoon.
Day 6: Today we explore Slovenia's Narnia - the forested plateau of Pokljuka on cross-country skies. Home to the world cross country skiing championships, this area offers some of the best cross country tracks in Europe. At 1300m we are surrounded by stunning pine forest and beautiful alpine peaks. Late afternoon we return to our accommodation in Lake Bled.
Day 7: Today we travel to the beautiful Kranjska Gora Valley in the heart of the Julian Alps for an activity day! The day is spent taking a husky sled ride, trying tobogganing and having a go at snow-biking. Specialist instructors and equipment are provided for activities and they'll be the chance to stroll around the pretty town. After the day's events, we return to Bled for our last night dinner.
Day 8: KE group package services end with breakfast at the hotel. A single group transfer from Bled to Ljubljana Airport is provided.
