Overview

Book
This amazing family adventure holiday in Slovenia is based in Kranjska Gora, at the foot of the Julian Alps and minutes away from the Austrian and Italian borders. Formerly part of Yugoslavia, Slovenia has much more in common with its Alpine neighbours than Eastern Europe. Based at a comfortable hotel, with a swimming pool, we spend the week enjoying a variety of activities. On our first full day we hike up to the Martulk Waterfall, taking lunch in a mountain hut en route. Then, after mountain biking by the Italian lakes, we return to Kranjska Gora in time for a fun descent of the summer toboggan. No visit to Slovenia would be complete without a visit to Bled and its picturesque lake, where we manage to get our adrenaline fix at the 'high ropes' park! After a day to rest and enjoy the scenery, or experiment with other activities in Kranjska Gora, we drive over the Julian Alps via the dramatic Vrsic Pass. After lunch in the pretty town of Bovec, there's an optional rafting trip on the Soca River. A chance to try out some easy rock climbing and an afternoon spent walking to Jasna Lake, conclude this fantastic family adventure in Slovenia. This is a family adventure holiday with the ideal mix of activities and free time.

Can’t really speak highly enough of our local agent and trip leaders. They made last minute changes to collection and drop off plans to accommodate the group, they sorted out all our special requests, they were efficient, friendly and knowledgeable on all the activities, they were brilliant with the kids (giving them the freedom and independence they crave at this age and us parents a break)and were good fun to spend time with. They were also flexible with timings and arrangements so that we never felt rushed and everyone’s needs were accommodated. The lunch food that was arranged was particularly good - especially at the mountain hut (on the hike) and in Bled after the hire wires course. It is the people that make a trip like this memorable and we felt very lucky to have great fun fellow holidaymakers and such good trip guides. We all felt that we had been away longer than the week as we had packed so much in. The activities were pitched just right for the group - there was some challenge for every person on every activity. The adults enjoyed all the fun stuff as much as the kids. This area of Slovenia is also so beautiful, the scenery too is uplifting. We enjoyed all the activities - something to challenge everybody on every one of them. The area of Slovenia - just beautiful, the friendliness of the group The feeling of freedom from parental control for the children. The holiday met and probably exceeded all expectations. Delighted!

The trip leader hit a perfect balance with our group. He had lots of stories and knew the history of the area inside out. He was great with both kids and adults and on the last day pushed us with great sensitivity well beyond our comfort zones with the rock climbing. I had expected this to be a climbing wall and therefore a bit tame. Instead we found ourselves facing a real cliff face alongside professionals and doing OK. Great sense of achievement. Really pleased with our choice of holiday - the boys' stamina was tested with the cycling and we loved the adrenalin of the rafting and the beautiful surroundings. White water rafting was our favourite but we enjoyed everything and felt a huge sense of achievement with the high ropes and climbing.

Our family adventure was simply perfect. The scenery throughout the entire trip was breathtakingly beautiful, from the snow capped mountains to the emerald-green rivers and lakes. Our guide was amazing. So friendly, enthusiastic and fun, we all loved him! It was certainly an active week - the high ropes offered several different levels to keep everyone happy, the rock climbing was challenging enough for my 2 who are fairly experienced climbers but The guide and his brother were so supportive with those of us who were a little less certain on the rocks. The cycling, the white water rafting, the summer toboggan were all brilliant fun as well. Tips....we were lucky with the weather so if you go in October take plenty of layers as it can be very cold early in the morning. No need to take wet shoes for rafting as the company supply proper boots. Also the 'base layer' is actually just a swimming costume for the rafting (though the base layer was useful as an extra layer for the kids on other days). Me and my 2 kids loved every single second of this trip and would wholeheartedly recommend it. Thank you!!

We all loved the activities organised by our guides, and the pace was good. The guides were fun, enthusiastic and also professional. They encouraged everyone to challenge themselves, but not too much! They helped out if anyone struggled. I fail to find a favourite - from the hike on the first day, the mountain biking, summer toboggan, white water rafting, rock climbing and high ropes plus a swim in lake Bled to finish off - such memorable experiences; we loved them all! My only criticism was that we had a substantial buffet breakfast and buffet dinner at the hotel, and on three days, we ate out at local restaurants and had four course meals - it was simply too much, and I felt, rather a waste of food (we couldn't eat it all) and time. On one day we lost an opportunity to swim in lake Bled. The sun was out, a picnic would have been perfect, but by the time we had sat through four courses of unnecessary food, it was pouring with rain!

So many amazing new experiences. There was great variety of activities with enough time to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We were all challenged at different times during the holiday and there was a great sense of achievement in succeeding and completing the activities. Our guide could not have been more helpful throughout the holiday - she was cheerful and easy going. Bring comfortable sports shoes and clothes. The hotel was very helpful at catering for our 2 coeliac children and went to great efforts to ensure they were well catered and looked after.

Our leaders were excellent trip leaders who worked very well with the children. They were very patient and knew just how far to push/encourage them. Adults were also challenged! Expect a full-on week. The days were always busy. If you are looking for plenty of chill-out time this trip probably isn't for you! Bear in mind the actual days of the itinerary may be changed to make the most of the weather. Make sure you book the white water rafting. Nearly everyone said this was the highlight of their trip. We would recommend this for people looking for plenty of action experiences.

I choose adventure holidays because I feel they put together a programme of activities and give you an insight into the country you are visiting that it would be incredibly difficult to put together yourself and this holiday did not disappoint. David and Ales were fantastic guides - kind, supportive, flexible and funny. They were brilliant with the group on the activities, going out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. Our family's favourites were the white water rafting, mountain biking, high ropes and grass toboggan. I am ashamed to admit I knew very little about Slovenia before I arrived but they imparted so much knowledge on history, music, customs and everything Slovenian .... and it is a truly beautiful country. They also made changes to the itinerary based on the weather, group's ability or our requests, to make sure everyone got the best experience possible during the week. Top marks to David for going above and beyond when he completed a 3 hour round trip to collect my daughter's forgotten bag with all her kit in on our last day!! On a practical note bring cycling shorts if you have them and we didn't need any base layers or special shoes for the white water rafting - it was all provided. We just wore swimming costumes under the kit provided. Also be prepared - everyone challenged themselves on this holiday - we were tired after the activities although incredibly satisfied.

This was our first time with Adventures. The whole holiday, from webchatting, through to booking and then travelling was top notch and all went very smoothly. It made the holiday effort-free (apart from the physical aspect of some of the activities!) and therefore relaxing from start to finish. The Hotel Spik was in a fantastic location in the alps. There's a campsite next to it, with a handy mini-market there, plus a childrens' low ropes course. We upgraded to the 4* rooms, which were much more modern, spacious and had a balcony and mini-bar (useful fridge for chilling water bottles and beers!) No tea and coffee facilities though, which was much missed. Maybe take a travel kettle if you like a regular cuppa. We managed to get adjoining rooms for us and our daughter. The food was buffet and plentiful choice. But note, no English breakfast tea at breakfast until the weekends! So if you need a morning cuppa, take your own! Swimming pool area was lovely, great pools and jacuzzi open 9am-9pm, plenty of reclining chairs for all. A nice terrace outside the pool for sunny days. Extra charge for sauna/steam rooms. Charge for towels (we took sporty lightweight towels, easy to dry). Spa treatments rooms on 4th floor - We had a massage on the last day and it was excellent. Drinks in the hotel were reasonable. You can drink the tap water in your room. But they will not provide tap water in the dining room at dinner time. You have to buy bottled water, quite expensive at 2.5euro for 500ml

Mum, Dad and 8 year old son thoroughly enjoyed all the activities on offer. All the activities were of an equally high standard, including the optional rafting, which we think should be included in the full trip price. Quality of service from tour guides was exceptional - fun and knowledgeable guys (David and Ales). Every day is action-packed and can be tiring. However, the hotel pool was a great end to the day. Plenty of decent food at buffet breakfast and dinner, with something to suit most tastes. Top tips - bring sturdy boots/trainers for walking, cycling shorts and suntan lotion! Would recommend for an adventure-seeking family.
