  1. Day1 Hello, Family!

    You will arrive at the airport, where a private transfer to Bled will be waiting on you. Bled is a typical alpine town, located at the foothills of the Julian Alps. When you will spot a castle on the rock, overlooking a deep, clean glacial lake with a picturesque church on an island, you will know your adventure is about to begin! We will meet with you to discuss how your days will play out and take you to your accommodation.

  2. Day2 Bled and surroundings

    After breakfast at the farm, we will take you to your first whitewater rafting on Sava River (2-3 hours, grade II-III). Some drops, rapids and white knuckle time, it’s always a great family fun! In the afternoon, upon returning to Bled, you will decide to bike with our guide to either Vintgar Gorge or circle Lake Bled and Bled area. Vintgar Gorge is a fantastic display of mysterious and powerful nature and a must-see for all who venture to Bled. The gorge is accessible by a wooden walkway stretching one mile deep from the entry point and all the way to 52 ft high Šum Waterfall.

  3. Day3 Water Day

    After breakfast we will depart for Lake Bohinj (approx. 45min drive), the largest permanent lake in Slovenia. Here, you will truly feel embraced by green forests, clean waters and fresh air. We will go on a hike around the lake, following a trail along the shoreline. You will hike up a moderate hill to visit georgeous 200 ft high Savica Waterfall, a spring of Sava River, and then take a cable car ride to Mt. Vogel (5,000 ft). You will be met with stunning views of Lake Bohinj and the surrounding mountains. In the afternoon you will do easy canoeing on the lake before returning back to Bled.

  4. Day4 Night on a mountain

    After breakfast at the farm, we will pick you up all packed and ready for the overnight in the mountains! A short drive (approx. 30min) will take you to the starting point of your hike. You will hike on a moderate, pleasant hiking trail uphill to Blejska koča mountain hut above Pokljuka (approximately 2 hours), where you will spend your afternoon and night. Once there, you roam around exploring natural diversity of Pokljuka and taking in the views. Pokljuka Plateau is known for its vast and thick pine forests and abundance of wildlife. Our families love it for mushroom picking! This is where you can enjoy the nature at it’s most pristine!

  5. Day5 Valley awaits

    Once you finish your breakfast at the mountain hut and take one last deep breath of pure mountain air, you will slowly descend and return back to Bled, where you will be able to jump in the lake for a refreshing swim and optional lunch near the lake, or return to the farm to freshen up. In the afternoon you will do easy rock climbing in Bohinjska Bela with a climbing guide. Bohinjska Bela is a small alpine village that is believed to be over one thousand years old. Now it is known as one of the top quality climbing areas in Slovenia!

  6. Day6 Endless excitement

    This will be a fun day! We will pick you up at the farm after breakfast and take you canyoning to the beautiful Jereka Canyon (easy level) in Bohinjska Bistrica!
    All needed canyoning gear will be provided. It is an unforgettable experience, taking you to places, which are hidden to most. Be ready – you will get wet! In the afternoon we will take you to a one-hour horseback ride in the Bled area. Suitable for beginners or experienced riders. The rest of the afternoon in Bled is all yours! This is the time for those gorgeous Christmas card family pictures in fairytale-like surroundings of Bled.

  7. Day7 Always welcome back!

    This is your last day at the farm. After breakfast, your adventure with us will end. We will have a transfer to Ljubljana Airport ready for you in time for your flight. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us!

Family Farm and Mountain Hut

You will spend 5 nights at a family-run farm in a small, quiet Alpine village just outside Bled. The farm is surrounded by orchards and green pastures, and filled with freely grazing cows. Your stay will include breakfast made with homegrown foods.

A mountain hut Blejska koča will be your accommodation on Pokljuka, where you will spend a night high up in the mountains and have a breakfast in a fresh alpine air.
