Lakes & Mountains..
We take great pleasure in introducing you to this beautiful and friendly country bordered by Austria and Italy. The scenery like its neighbours is Alpine but the Slovenia Alps are less well-known and therefore quieter. The resort we have chosen lies in the Bohinj valley at the foot of the Julian Alps and on the shores of Lake Bohinj. The nearby village of Stara Fuzina can be visited with its Austrian style chalets, beautiful displays of flowers and the sound of cow bells on the surrounding hillsides. And by bike we visit Studor, the oldest village in Slovenia.
This destination is a paradise for those who love the outdoors with endless activities on offer to while away the balmy days. We can picnic and sunbathe on the meadows by the side of the lake whilst the children take a dip in its crystal clear waters. We can hire bikes and cycle to nearby villages. For the more adventurous there are lots of optional additional activities such as, an Adrelin Park with a high ropes course, a chance to learn how to Kayak, try canoeing, climbing, paragliding or have a go at Hydrospeed. There's a Water Park at nearby Bohinjski Bistrica. You can learn to fish in the river and lake, where you can see the trout swimming in the crystal clear waters.
We take the ferry boat across the lake at Bohinj and take an easy amble back around the beautiful shores. We can visit the Savica waterfall. "Its water bursts from under the ground of the Dolina sedmerih jezer (The Seven Triglav Lakes Valley) through the walls of Komara at Savica Waterfall, which is the most famous Slovenian waterfall. The Savica falls almost 51 meters into a natural basin.
We will have easy access to local bus services and we visit Lake Bled and its medieval castle. We can take a boat trip or if you prefer you can hire a boat and row across Lake Bled to the island and its picturesque church. We can take a ride on the little tourist train around the lake. For the more adventurous you can have a go at hurtling downhill on the luge!
Once visited, never forgotten - Slovenia, heaven on earth!
We will be staying 7 nights half board in a friendly family run pension in the village of Ribcev Laz and just a 5 minute walk from the shores of Lake Bohinj. All rooms have en suite facilities, balcony and TV. The pension has a lovely restaurant which is homely with typical Slovenian rustic décor, where we have our evening meal. Breakfast will be self service (hot and cold) and your evening meal will be a set 3 course meal with waiter service. The pension is proud to introduce you to homemade dishes typical of the country and region. (Vegetarians can be catered for.) The pension has an outdoor terrace and a pub which affords splendid views of the Bohinj mountains and will be our meeting place to reminisce after our days activities. There are other bars, cafés and a Pizzeria close to the pension. There is usually one evening of entertainment of local dance in traditional costume.
Mango Group Holiday Fun
Each morning after breakfast your Mango co-ordinator will meet up with the group and will organise a programme of events and visits. There will also be a get together before dinner so that the group can go into the restaurant to dine together.
