Slovenia in 2013
Last month, Lonely Planet named Slovenia as the number one destination in the World for spending active holidays......high praise indeed but well deserved we think......
The article described Slovenia as follows:
"Slovenia has a reputation as one of Europe’s best adventure playgrounds. The towering Julian Alps offer all the adrenalin pursuits you’d expect, as well as some fantastic marked trails to stretch your legs. These mountains are home to rivers that offer plenty of thrills – from hydrospeeding (travelling downriver on a boogie board) to rafting, canyoning and kayaking. Waterskiing is possible at coastal resorts such as Izola. Slovenia’s diminutive size makes getting around the country a breeze: travel from the capital Ljubljana to villages around Lake Bohinj will take an hour by car. This area is a good base for hikes in Triglav National Park and for watersports"
It is difficult to beat that description but we would highlight a couple of holiday thoughts:
Christmas markets in Ljubljana are great
