Description of Slovenia tailor made tour

This week in Slovenia unlocks the ancient wine cellar doors and invites you into the traditional flagstone kitchens that have long been the reserve of only those lucky locals in the know.

Discovering Slovenia’s secrets in the company of a local guide is a real joy for cultural travellers. Sightseeing in Ljubljana lets you explore the capital on foot and by boat whilst outside the city you’ll find the UNESCO-listed Skocjan Caves inviting you to descend deep, deep, down below.

Elsewhere, the inimitable forms of Lake Bled and Mount Vogel, in Triglav National Park, provide some fabulous excuses for a walk before you depart for the coast and indulge in a spot of foraging in the company of a professional truffle hunter and his dog.

From wine tasting sessions to meeting local herdsmen, bee keepers and cheese makers; this tailor made week makes the connection between Slovenian cultural heritage and the land.

Home cooked family meals in traditional kitchens are just as good as they sound and no day is complete without a schnapps or a brandy to ensure a warm welcome is never in doubt.

This is a country that’s small in size but huge in ambition with environmental protection and preserving rural lifestyles at the top of the agenda when it comes to sustainable tourism.

From pungent pine forests and alpine mountain slopes to karst landscapes, vast lakes and mist shrouded waterfalls, not to mention naturally thermal springs, this tailor made tour is your chance to seek out Slovenia's secrets as you take a walk on the wild side.

Slovenia tailor made tour

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We support locally-owned businesses. Try to eat in locally owned restaurants and order local drinks and produce rather than international brands. You can encourage community initiatives such as handmade crafts by buying locally produced souvenirs.

We work with local partners in our destination and use local guides and drivers wherever possible. Most of the hotels have a policy of reusing sheets or towels, try to support this as often as you feel you can. Remember to turn off lights and electrical equipment in your room if you’re not using them, and turn off air-conditioning units. When visiting national parks and nature reserves, stick to set paths in order to preserve natural habitats and leave animals undisturbed.

Aim to recycle what you can. Water bottles can often be refilled hygienically. Try to throw away or recycle any extra packaging you may have before you travel, and bring items such as batteries home to be recycled if they can’t be locally.

Community

Social responsibility is perceived as a lasting commitment to work together with the environment in which we operate. Supporting and helping our environment is embedded in our long-term growth strategy. Caring for social and environmental is part of Grand Cuvée tours operations and its wider social activities.

We’re committed to making your trip have a positive effect on the destination you’re visiting. That's why we use locally owned and environmentally and socially responsible accommodation wherever possible.
Different cultures have different attitudes to tipping – ask us or your guide for advice.
Observe local cultural sensitivities and engage with local people and avoid embarrassment or even offence.
Learn a few words in a local language and open the doors to a more authentic experience.
Always ask if it’s OK to take a person’s photograph, and be aware that flash photography can damage artwork.
