Find out what other hidden attractions Slovenia has to offer and join a trip to the unknown, where you could become familiar with Slovenian traditions, visit local festivals, and discover places that only few tourists have seen. Spend a day exploring the fascinating sights the tourist maps miss on this day trip from Ljubljana. Typified by Alpine peaks, emerald lakes and medieval towns with fairy-tale churches and castles, Slovenia is crammed with breathtaking natural, cultural and historical attractions just waiting to be discovered.

Join your expert guide on the best adventure of your trip as you set off for frozen-in-time medieval towns, hidden lakes, ancient castles, and snow-capped peaks and more. Your surprise trip starts in Ljubljana and takes you into the unknown. The tour will take you to a lesser known but highly attractive natural, cultural and historical attraction in Slovenia, one with great photo opportunities for you. The destination where you will be taken will be an attraction that is virtually unknown to travellers and is often unknown to or ignored by locals. Your surprise destination could be any one of Slovenia’s 300 castles and numerous churches, one of the many clear rivers, peaceful lakes and hidden waterfalls, or perhaps one of the ten thousand caves. You could be taken to a medieval town, an inconspicuous marketplace, or a quaint village. You might end up participating in a local festival or shopping at a village market.

Dare to be different and become an explorer, not just a tourist.
