The Experience

Day 1: Arrival in Ljubljana followed by an airport transfer to your boutique accommodation in the heart of the city’s old town. After your welcome meeting, spend the rest of the day as you choose, perhaps visiting the Ljubljana’s castle perched high up on a hill, enjoying the stunning panoramic views of the city or simply stroll through the cobbled streets of the incredibly charming old district.

Day 2: Morning transfer to breathtakingly picturesque Lake Bled. First you will visit Bled Castle which sits high up on a cliff top, the perfect photo opportunity, before taking a local boat to explore the Church of the Assumption which is sitting pretty in the middle of the lake. After Lake Bled, you will travel further into the mountains for lunch in a local tavern and sample some traditional Slovenian fare (not included). After lunch you will travel to the Husky mushing school for your Husky Experience where you will meet your adorable new fluffy friends and feel the rush of husky riding with your team of huskies. Finally, you will head back to your chalet hotel for a well deserved dinner and some mulled wine (not included).

Day 3: Get involved in some of the various optional winter activities on offer, varying from skiing, snow boarding, cross country skiing, more husky activities, visiting a local spa for some pampering or simply find a nice spot, relax and enjoy the mountain scenery. Afternoon transfer back to Ljubljana.

Day 4: Transfer to Ljubljana airport for return flight

Ljubjana

Slovenia’s capital perfectly mixes baroque facades with the 20th-century native architecture. Its iconic Tromostovje (Triple Bridge) spans the tightly curving Ljubljanica River. With colourful houses, cobbled streets and Ljubljana Castle, that sits impressively on a hill looming over the city, it is impossible not to be charmed.

Lake Bled

Lake Bled is a glacial lake fed by hot springs. The town of Bled contains a church-topped islet and a cliffside medieval castle offering the perfect photo of the Lake. Sometimes during particularly harsh winters it even freezes and the boat ride to the Church of the Assumption turns into an icy walk!

The Season

Slovenia’s winter season is comparatively mild compared to its more eastern neighbours due to its central location but you can still expect temperatures below freezing so you’ll need to wrap up warm. Winter snow typically arrives in Slovenia around mid November, finishing at the end of March but with the effects of global warming winters are becoming harder and harder to predict. We highly recommend you pack for very cold temperatures as it’s always best to be too warm than too cold!

December:  The husky season starts at the beginning of December when you can expect temperatures of around -5 degrees Celsius and low lying fog in the mornings. Unsurprisingly, the festive period is a peak period.

January & February: The peak winter months where snow is almost guaranteed, with fog less likely and a good chance of crisp clear skies, especially in the mornings. You can however expect the temperatures to be closer to -10 degrees Celsius.

March: Offers your best chance of blue skies and slightly warmer weather, with temperatures pushing up towards 0 degrees and occasionally above freezing level.
