As diverse as it gets
Slovenia lies at the meeting point of four major European landscapes and, as such, boasts extraordinary diversity within a relatively small area, not only in terms of nature but also in terms of culture and gastronomy. As such, it represents a perfect destination for families on the move, 365 days a year.
Short distances and diverse adventures
What families will especially appreciate is the diversity present even over short distances. You’ll be surprised at how fast the landscape changes. In only a week, you can experience so many things, from water adventures — whether at Slovenian spas, at the seaside, rivers, or lakes — and adventure parks, hiking, horse-riding, farm holidays, and urban and or even subterranean exploration. A variety of adventures awaits you year-round, but if you’re visiting in winter, the whole family can hop on skis at one of the numerous family-friendly winter resorts, such as Kranjska Gora, Rogla, Krvavec, Cerkno, or Vogel. Combine this with a couple of days at some of Slovenia’s spas, and your children will be thrilled.
Unique family-friendly adventures guaranteed.
Did you know that the largest visitable cave in Europe is in Slovenia?

If you’re in Slovenia in springtime, the kids will enjoy white-water rafting on the Soča River, with its mesmerizing emerald green color. We haven’t mentioned the hiking and biking you can do in ever-changing landscapes!
