Lovers of green, untouched nature and outdoor activities, welcome! You have found your dream destination. No less than 60% of Slovenia is covered with forests. The country is also awash with rivers, lakes, and crystal clear mountain springs, where you can quench your thirst without a care in the world. Numerous plains and mountains offer ideal environments for camping and caravanning.
Every day, more than 150 “hotels under a million stars” allow you to be in touch with unspoiled Alpine, Mediterranean, karst, or Pannonian nature, very rich in drinking water. Lovers of holiday crowds can visit one of the tourist destinations, but if you prefer peace and quiet, visit a camping site in the idyllic countryside, in a remote village far away from the hustle and bustle. Both those who simply wish to spend a single night in a tent and those who love camping and caravanning will be able to find an ideal place for themselves in nature. To experience true luxury in nature, treat yourself to glamping or family glamping by spending the night in incredibly comfortable tree houses, wine barrels, tipis, wooden huts, etc.

Next to water, under mountains, or in towns and cities
In Slovenia, you can enjoy camping and caravanning on the outskirts of towns or in untouched nature. You can enjoy your first morning coffee listening to streams, the waves of the sea, or you can go for a run on one of the endless trails that take you past lakes, waterfalls, or farms, where farmers prepare sour milk first thing in the morning.
Most camping and caravanning opportunities can be found in western Slovenia, where camping sites are available anywhere from the coast to Triglav National Park. Camping sites in eastern Slovenia are often near health resorts that are famous for exceptional wellness and health programmes. They are of special interest to visitors with children who love pools.
A romantic weekend or a fun family holiday
While camping and caravanning in Slovenia, even your most romantic and daring family plans can come true. Fairy-tale nature, as well as the catering and wellness opportunities, will allow you to have an unforgettable getaway for two, and extensive offerings for children and families will make sure that holidays are truly memorable even for your youngest family members. Miniature golf, basketball, football, badminton, table tennis, tennis, adrenaline parks, or the usual children’s playgrounds, etc. All this will help you rest.

For lovers of biking and other sports
Bikers will absolutely love biking camp sites, where you and your bicycle will be well taken care of. Local biking enthusiasts at the camp site, who know the surrounding biking trails like the back of their hand, might even reveal a local biking secret or two to you.
There are also endless opportunities for unique experiences, such as paragliding, rafting, kayaking, canyoning, adrenaline parks, bike parks, Nordic walking, sledding on grass, skiing, climbing, ice climbing, hiking, and much more.
In summer and in winter
Are you one of that rare and hardy breed who like to go camping and caravanning in winter as well? You’re welcome to come. Most camping sites are open from April to October, but there are always some in every part of Slovenia that are open all year long and will warmly welcome you even in cold weather.
Great caravanning facilities
You can explore every nook and cranny of Slovenia in your caravan. More than 70 specialised caravan stops or rest stops with all of the necessary fixtures and toilet facilities are available for your comfort. If it so happens that you are unable to find any in the part of the country where you are travelling, you are welcome in all regular camping sites or at major stops along main roads. In the countryside, some tourist farms provide caravan stops, where you can also have the opportunity to try some local culinary delights.
