DAY 1 - 4

SLOVENIAN ALPS 

Slovenia is a secret pearl full of natural beauty: mountains and forests, hills and meadows, idyllic villages and towns. 
The Slovenian Alps in the north-east of Slovenia are a few degrees rougher than the rest of the country and are reminiscent of the Austrian and Swiss big brothers.

 

Discover beautiful landscapes, mountain peaks, roads and nice villages everywhere where you are always welcomed with open arms by the locals who greet every visitor as a very welcome guest. Tourists are not seen too much here.

NATIONAL PARK PLITVICE

The Plitvice Lakes are magical nature reserve that has been under the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is a truly impressive  area, where one scenery is even more beautiful than the next. It is a large park with a total of 16 lakes, divided into the 'upper lakes' and the 'lower lakes.

 

The spectacular routes lead you along streams and waterfalls. Everywhere you look you will see the unbelievably blue and crystal-clear water.

ZADAR & ZADAR'S ARCHIPELAGO

The 3000-year-old World Heritage town is beautifully situated in the Adriatic Sea with traces of the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Venetians who were all temporarily in charge during history. Historic old town of medieval churches, Roman ruins, cosmopolitan cafes and quality museums set on a small peninsula, Zadar is an intriguing city. 


With a sailing boat you will be able to visit the islands of Ugljan and Dugi Otok, which are less crowded than the other more famous islands off the Croatian coast. Enjoy discovering secret bays and small villages.

ŠIBENIK

Where cities like Zadar and Dubrovnik attract a lot of visitors, Šibenik stays a bit behind for some incomprehensible reason. It is the underdog of the Adriatic coast even though it is the one of the very few cities to have two buildings under UNESCO protection: the famous St James Cathedral and St. Nicholas Fort.

The surrounding nature ismagnificent: the beautiful Kornati islands National Park are easily accessible while the world-famous waterfalls of Krka are only a fifteen-minute drive away.

 

The city also has a great culinary trump: restaurant Pelegrini is one of the best in all of Croatia and was awarded a Michelin star in March 2018.

Istria has the six largest Roman amphitheatre in the world situated in Pula. Many visitors compare Istria with Tuscany due to its medieval hilltop towns, stunning views and excellent wines and restaurants. It's a culinary paradise and many of the refined Mediterranean dishes are flavoured with truffle and accompanied by the unique wines produced in Istria vineyards.
