The Best of Croatia & Slovenia

Our twin centre tour includes 4 nights at a lovely private island resort off the coast of Rovinj followed by 3 nights on Lake Bled, one of the most beautiful Alpine resorts renowned for its mild climate and thermal springs.
Day 1 Arrival
Today we travel to Rovinj in Croatia and take a 15 minute boat trip to our private island resort.

Day 2 Rovinj Driver’s Day Off
We spend today either exploring our private island at leisure, relaxing on the beaches or taking the ferry to Rovinj, famous for the St Euphemia Cathedral, the largest baroque building in Istria. Rovinj was originally an island too, but 250 years ago the narrow channel which separated it from the mainland was filled in. Rovinj is extremely pretty with numerous cafés and restaurants, galleries and an active fishing port and worth the effort if we can bear to leave our resort island!

Day 3 Brijuni Islands & Pula
This morning we head to the port of Fažana, close to Pula, and enjoy a 20 minute boat journey to the Brijuni National Park, comprising 14 beautiful islands. During our visit we enjoy a sightseeing tour on a land train which includes a visit to a Safari Park, archaeological museum, Roman ruins, a Venetian Castle and Mediterranean Gardens. Cafés and restaurants are available for a lunch stop (not included) before returning to the mainland. In the afternoon we visit Pula, the largest town in Istria famous for its magnificent Roman amphitheatre.

Day 4 Opatija
Today we visit the elegant coastal resort of Opatija. We can stroll along its 12km promenade lined with impressive villas and pretty gardens and wander through the historic centre brimming with chic shops, Viennese style coffee houses, bars and restaurants.

Day 5 Lake Bled via Postojna Caves
Today we leave Croatia behind and travel towards Slovenia. We continue towards our stunning resort on Lake Bled via the breathtaking Postojna Caves. A specially developed train takes us deep within 24km of caves decorated with stalactites and stalagmites. Note: To complete the full tour of the caves will involve a lot of walking.

Day 6 Bled Driver’s Day Off
Today is a day at leisure to relax and enjoy the area. There are many things to do, but top of the list would be a boat trip across to Bled Island. Here we have a closer look at the Church of the Assumption and discover some of its history as well as what’s hidden behind the lush greenery, like the bell tower, chaplain’s house and more. For those who are a little more active, why not take a walk around the lake enjoying the various photographic opportunities or walk up to Bled Castle for magnificent aerial views?

Day 7 Julian Alps & Triglav National Park
Today we embark on a scenic drive into Triglav National Park and visit the picturesque villages of Soca and Trenta nestled within the scenic Trenta valley and framed by the remarkable Julian Alps.
