Check into you hostel, then meet with the group to outline the weekend.

Saturday: Soča River rafting, hiking and more
Drive to nearby Triglav National Park for a day of nonstop adventure.
You'll take 3 separate hikes throughout the day, each one lasting 30-45 minutes and taking you to incredibly beautiful vistas and points of interest. There's even an (optional) via ferrata section at the end of the second hike.
You'll also spend a couple hours rafting the crystal-blue Soča River. The moderate class II, III and III+ rapids are the perfect blend of fun and adrenaline, but if that's not enough excitement for you, try jumping off cliffs and bridges into deep pools in the river.
Other major landmarks you'll visit throughout the day are Lake Bled, Jasna Lake, a Russian chapel, Vrsic Mountain Pass, the source of the Soča River, many waterfalls, and Bohinj Lake.
Return to Bled in the evening for a well-earned night's sleep.
Head out in the morning for either Grmecica Canyon or Jereka Canyon, two of the most scenic and dynamic canyons in Slovenia.
Spend two hours navigating the narrow limestone slots, abseiling off ledges, jumping into still pools, and sliding down waterfalls. Canyoning is a rush, and Slovenia is the perfect place to try it.
Return to your hostel for lunch and a shower, then enjoy the rest of the afternoon exploring Bled in your own time. In the evening you'll be transferred to Ljubljana for your flight home.
Note: This itinerary and the duration of the activities are subject to change due to group abilities and preferences, weather conditions and forecasts, special events, etc.
All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
You'll stay at the Jazz hostel in Bled. The hostel is located in a peaceful part of town just a 5 minute walk from the lake and town centre. Depending on availability you'll be staying in either a twin, 3-bed room or dorm room with shared bathroom. Jazz Hostel includes free wifi, computer use, printing services for boarding passes, city maps, linens, shampoo and soap, lockers, and luggage storage.
With immense natural beauty, Bled ranks among the most beautiful alpine towns in Europe, renowned for its mild climate and thermal lake water. Bled's attractions include walking paths around the lake, traditional boat rides to the castle-topped island at the lake's centre, nearby mountain trails and more.
Triglav National Park was named after Triglav Mountain, the highest peak Slovenia (2864m). Triglav means "three-headed", referring to the shape of the mountain as seen from the southeast. The mountain is Slovenia's national symbol and is featured on the national coat of arms and the flag.
Triglav is among the oldest European parks, protecting a beautiful landscape of limestone rock walls and cave networks, rushing rivers, and endless green hills and forests. Wildlife in the park includes golden eagles, griffon vultures, lynx, chamois, marmots, ibex and hares.
