[Entry to be paid on spot; optional transfer approx 5.00 euros pp]

We SUP to Ljubljanas most famous and beautiful ‘three bridges’ and back to the Canoe Club. Activity duration around 2 hours.

Once back on land we organise a delicious BBQ lunch

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!’
