Note: The actual itinerary and the duration of the activities are subject to change due to group abilities and preferences, weather conditions and forecasts, river conditions, etc.

Ljubljana is a mid-sized city with a small-town feel. Known for its thriving cultural scene and relaxed atmosphere, the capital city is sure to impress. You’ll have plenty of time both on and off the river to check out famous sights like the Dragon Bridge, Prešeren Square, castles and more. Ljubljana is home to plentiful fine dining at a much more affordable price than what you’d find in western Europe.
The Soča River runs 138km from the Julian Alps to the Adriatic Sea. Known as the “Emerald River”, the vivid green-blue water of the Soča is almost too beautiful to be real. The valley surrounding the river is home to forested hills, dramatic canyons, and spectacular lookouts.
Wedged between two high plateaus, the Vipava Valley is a diverse landscape of rugged hills, high cliffs and endless, rolling agricultural land. The Mediterranean climate is perfect for growing grapes and other fruits, and the region is famous for its wines. It’s the perfect place to get off the beaten path and have a unique Slovenian experience.
