Check out our suggested 3, 5, 7, 10 and 12 days Travel itineraries in Slovenia and start planning your trip to this exceptional country.

Some refers to Slovenia as a “Smaller Switzerland”, others say it is the “Real life Narnia Land” but I believe the country deserves to be know for its own wonders, which are many and unique.

Actually, I must say that Slovenia was the most wonderful surprise of my trips around Europe so far and it left me quite impressed with the natural and wild beauty of the country.

Featuring majestic mountains, the most clear rivers I have ever seen and one of the kindest people I met in Europe, Slovenia is a treasure that hasn’t been totally discovered yet, but this situation will certainly not last for long.

So, be sure to plan a trip to this gorgeous contry as soon as possible in order to enjoy its genuinely tranquil atmosphere, very attractive prices and the greateful feeling of visiting sights that are not widely advertised online and in social media yet.

During my trip to Slovenia I received many questions on Instagram about the best travel itinerary to enjoy the most out of the country, but the truth is that the best itinerary must be custom designed according to your interests and available time to travel.

However, I have sumed up some great itinerary ideas to help you plan your trip, but please remember you can always change the order or the number of days in each city according to your traveler profile and schedule.

Before we start, I would like to warn you that the suggested itineraries were designed considering a roadtrip using a rental car, but it can also be adjusted for public transport, as it is highlited bellow in each topic.

That being said, it’s time to start planning a trip to Slovenia, which will for sure be one of the best in your life!

 

SLOVENIA IN 3 DAYS

 

Let’s put it straight: Slovenia deserves much more than just three days, but if you only have this parcel of time available, it is good to know that you can take advantage of this wonderful country and then leave with the desire to return soon to explore more!

So, first, if you are planning a three days trip to Slovenia, I suggest you stay in only one city or a maximum of two cities: Ljubljana and-or Bled.

If you chose to stay in Ljubljana, make sure to save a full day to explore the cute capital of Slovenia and to optimize your time there be sure to check our suggestion for what to do there in 1 day.

For the next couple of days, you can choose to rent a car or join tours organized by agencies, depending on your travel profile or budget.

On the second day, you can take a trip to Postojna Cave combined with Predjama Castle and return to Ljubljana or even sleep in Bled.

On the third day, take time to explore Bled, its lake, castle and take a bike ride around the place and I promisse you will fall in love with the fairy tale landscapes.

If you still have time left, be sure to visit Bohinj Lake and-or Vintgar Gorge and thus you will have visited the most iconic postcards of Slovenia.
