Given our modern pace of life slow tourism has become a great counterbalance to the often too fast daily routine. Green, active and healthy Slovenia is, with its dynamic landscape, diverse regions and pristine nature an ideal setting for enjoying "slow" activities. Slow tourism stories, in the land nestled between the Alps and the Mediterranean, are based on three key elements: culture, cuisine and most importantly – nature. Nature and man have coexisted in harmony in Slovenia for centuries. In Slovenia, breathing in the crisp forest air, feeling the grass under bare feet or taking a rest on a haystack is as customary as a cup of coffee first thing in the morning.
Try the package "Become a Local" is definitely one of the most authentic ones. It is an ideal option for visitors who wish to peacefully and contemplatively explore nature. You can discover Alpine tradition, with the hospitable locals and music, in seven days, in the embrace of the two Alpine gems - Bled and Bohinj, medieval Radovljica, the magical Trenta Valley and the Soča Valley.
Slow tourism can be described best with the words: time, tranquillity, cohabitation, authenticity, sustainability and emotion. The tourism providers that are part of an international network Slow tourism, have found an important added value in this innovative product as they have enriched the standard offer to suit the modern visitor and tourist.
Cyclists will be interested in the 8-day package "Slow Biking". In an animated fashion it introduces visitors to places with diverse landscapes and many natural and cultural attractions. All the way from the towns of Bled, Bohinj, Most na Soči, past Nova Gorica and Lipica to Piran. Romantics and hikers can enjoy the 7-day package "999 Hills", which unwinds in the dreamy countryside in Triglav National Park, Sorško polje and the Polhograjski Dolomiti regional park. Those explorers at heart, who enjoy discovering emerald waters, can choose the 11-day "Green Experiences along the Water" package. This entails a trip to Slovenian and neighbouring Italian locations, where tradition, art and history live. You will travel all the way from Ljubljana, Kranjska Gora, the Soča Valley, Portogruaro, Venice and Ferrara to Ravenna. Here nature plays the leading role, as this is a world where time passes more slowly.
Slow tourism in Slovenia is based on a long-term vision, environmental consciousness and solid relations with local communities.
