Day 1: Arrival day

[Includes: Welcome dinner – if arriving before 8pm]

On arrival our friendly team will meet you with a big smile and open arms! If you fly into Ljubljana the transfer time to the hotel is only 20 minutes so before you know it you can be unpacked & ready to explore the fairy-tale capital for yourselves.

This evening your dedicated tour leader will host a welcome dinner at a lovely restaurant in the old town so you will have chance to meet the other families & ask any questions about your exciting week ahead.

Day 2: Kayaking on Krka

After breakfast we will take a short transfer to the activity start point. Where we will kit you out and introduce you to the basics of river kayaking. Once everyone is proficient we will head down river on grade 1 and 2 rapids covering a 9km stretch. This is a great activity and very rewarding. Learning to paddle is quite easy and lots of fun. 

We will stop for a well deserved lunch at the lovely Krka river restaurant [payment for food choice on spot]

Day 3: Adventure Park (6 x Activities included)

Today we take you to an incredible mountain adventure park with 6 activities included in your park admission. These include: your return journey by cable car, archery competition, high-ropes park, frisbee golf and either mountain go-karts or the monster rollers; which ever you prefer!

We will stop for lunch at the mountain hut (payment on spot) before heading back to your hotel.

Day 4: Free Day or (Optional Hiking or Atlantis Waterpark )

Today is another free day. But you have the choice to do more. For the more active, this morning around 10:00am we can arrange a hike to Smarna Gora which offers unrivalled views of Ljubljana valley. Clean air, invigorating nature and epic views are sure to impress even the most cynical teenager! At around 14:00 we will head back to the hotel.

We also recommend checking out ‘Atlantis waterpark’ on your free day. This brand new facility offers three areas with over 16 pools & 20 different sauna / steam rooms. The 3 areas are ‘Adventure World’ with various pools & slides, Thermal Temple and Sauna Land.

Day 5: Lake Bled & White Water Rafting

After breakfast we depart to the iconic Lake Bled. In the morning we will do white water rafting on the Sava River. White water rafting is so much fun and enjoyed by teenagers and parents a like. Stunning nature combined with hilarious splash action makes this a big hit with our families. 

We stop for lunch at Lake Bled [payment on spot] so any budding photographers can capture the perfect shot or simply grab a selfie!

In the afternoon we will make time for swimming in Lake Bleds turquoise waters & soak in the epic views!

Day 6: SUP boarding & canoeing

After breakfast we take a gentle stroll to the River club where today’s fun and games begin. Standup paddle boarding is the world’s fastest growing NEW sport and perfect for all ages & skill levels. On the water we will give everyone instruction, learn to move & balance before venturing down river. Together, we’ll see Ljubljana from a totally different perspective, playing games and enjoying the splash action. Activity duration around 2 hours.

After some chill time – it is time to take part in the most eagerly awaited activity – our Green World Holidays ‘Olympic games of unusual sports’. This hilarious afternoon is sure to bring out the child in all of us. Late afternoon return to the hotel; time to relax.

Day 7: Free Day & Gala dinner

Today is your free day, and we can highly recommend optional trips to see Lake Bohinj, experience the Vogel Zipline, tours of the famous Postojna Caves or visit Atlantis waterpark. Ljubljana is lovely place to explore, with its panoramic Castle top views, small cobble stone streets and shopping alleys. Tonight, we’ll dine at another fabulous restaurant, finishing this wonderful family holiday on a high together!

Day 8: Departure day (too soon)

The inevitable sad farewells are by far the hardest activity you will face on our Slovenia family adventure holiday as you will have to say goodbye to all the new friends you have made over the past week. However, at Green World Holidays we say ‘until the next time! We never say goodbye!’

The hotel was recently renovated offering extremely clean, modern and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms.

The architect Niki Motoh gave the rooms modern design and quality furniture including box spring beds which provide our families with a well deserved higher quality of sleep.

The hotel offers a self-service breakfast.

All rooms are ensuite. Towels are provided in the rooms and are changed every day. Each room also has  LED SAT TV, telephone, access to the internet ( LAN or Wireless) and safety deposit box.
