Next spring, experience Europe’s best-kept secret destinations in the company of their most plugged-in tastemakers—from the charming cobblestone streets of Ljubljana to Lake Bled, the Julian Alps and beyond. Home to exceptional wine regions, this itinerary appeals to foodies, history buffs, nature lovers and urbanites. Plus, learn how Slovenia has helped set the gold standard for sustainable tourism, and explore this special place at a time when few other travelers will be there.

What to Expect
Highlights and special experiences:
Visit two up-and-coming destinations, with an itinerary that balances historical touring, a fascinating food and wine scene and alpine adventures.
Experience Slovenia’s natural treasures—from the country’s old-world cultural center, Ljubljana, and the Soča Valley to the aquamarine Lake Bled and otherworldly Škocjan Caves in the Karst region—and traverse emerald green forests and glacial lakes on hikes through the Julian Alps.
Immerse yourself in the richness of the Croatian landscape through such culinary experiences as olive oil and wine tastings—with their producers, in their homes—and a privately guided truffle hunt and gnocchi-making class with a family of third-generation truffle hunters (and their dogs!).
