TUESDAY, 28TH DECEMBER:
We will meet at the airport at 5.00am for our Air Malta direct flight to Ljubljana departing at 7.00am. On arrival at 9.00am, we will be transferred to our 3 star central City Hotel in Ljubljana. After check-in we will dedicate some time to truly discover the lovely city of Ljubljana. We will go on an optional 2 hour guided city tour of Ljubljana. Particular highlights of the old town include the Cathedral of St. Nicholas, City Hall, the Three Bridges and the open market. After the guided tour, we will take a boat ride (included – weather permitting) on the River Ljubljanica to admire the city from a different view from the river banks. The rest of the day is free to enjoy Ljubljana.
WEDNESDAY, 29TH DECEMBER:
Today we will spend a relaxing optional full-day excursion at the famous Slovenian skiing resort of Kranjska Gora. Set near the borders of Austria and Italy, this winter tourist resort touches the northern part of Triglav National Park. This picturesque village still retains its identity – traditional mountain homes and athletic dynamism are united here. The day spent here is a fun day, with loads to do like sledging (fun activities are extra) or just enjoying the beautiful scenery around.
THURSDAY, 30TH DECEMBER:
Today we go on a fascinating optional full-day excursion to Postojna and Predjama. Postojna caves are amongst the largest in the world. There are 22 kilometres worth of amazing stalagmite and stalactite structures Nativity Scene. An electric train will take us into the caves and then a guide will walk us through the most dramatic parts of the caves. We will also visit Predjama Castle (entrance extra), a unique Gothic structure built right in the mountains under a natural rocky arch high in the stone wall, making access to this castle very difficult in the olden times.
FRIDAY, 31ST DECEMBER:
We board our coach, and our full-day optional excursion will take us to spend a day surrounded by nature and culture. After breakfast, our coach will take us to Bled and Bohinj. Bled is the “pearl” of the Slovenian Alpine region. It has an emerald-green lake, a church on a small island in the middle of the lake and an 11th century medieval castle on a cliff overlooking the lake. This tour will also take us to the largest glacier lake in Slovenia, situated in the region of the Julian Alps mountain range, with the highest Slovene peak Mt Triglav rising above it. We can ride a cable car up Mt Vogel (extra – weather permitting) where we can admire the stupendous view till we reach the summit. In the evening, we will join the locals in the main square to greet the New Year!
SATURDAY, 1ST JANUARY – HAPPY NEW YEAR!:
After a late breakfast, a full-day optional excursion takes us to the lovely Krvavec Skiing Resort. We will ride a cable car (extra) up the mountain and enjoy some stupendous views. For the adventurous ones, it is also possible to rent a sledge (extra). We then have time to enjoy lunch (extra) in one of the restaurants. We return to our hotel.
