We’ll kayak a section of the gorgeous Alpine River and hike the beautiful Lower and Upper Falls in Martuljek Gorge. Our gay group will pause to appreciate Slovenia’s unique red wines, delicious artisan cheeses, and flavorful local produce. Join us for this truly remarkable week in a hidden corner of Europe.

Lunch will be in Bohinj, and then we will visit Radovlijca’s Apicultural Museum. A highlight of today is the Beekeeping Museum situated in a baroque manor house, detailing Slovenia’s rich tradition of apiculture, or bee farming.
As we leave the valley, our forest trail leads us into Martuljek Gorge where we will slowly start ascending along a stream with beautiful falls. Winding our way through the forest, we will emerge and enjoy another spectacular view at our rest stop at the Lipovčeva Hut. The amenities are famously known and it features a natural, open kitchen plus delicious homemade mountain soups.
Our trail along the stream arrives at the Lower Fall which cascades down into the valley, and today, we’ll also see the stunning Higher Falls, plus stop to appreciate a monument dedicated to Slovene climbers.
After lunch, we gear up for our zipline adventure that starts with a gorgeous drive up the mountainside in the instructor’s 4×4. This ride on a beautiful mountain road is a 10 km scenic dream.
At the zip line starting point, we will be harnessed in then we’ll whizz down to the mountain base. An estimated top speed for these lines are 40 to 60 km per hour (should you wish to go that fast) on one of four installed, roughly 2.4-kilometer lines.
This evening, we’ll enjoy a feast featuring locally grown ingredients at the award-winning Hisa Franko, voted one of the world’s top 50 restaurants in 2018. The head chef, Ana Roš, was in 2016 voted most talented chef in the world and has since claimed the title of world’s best female chef in 2017.
Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it’s usually because they’re looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn’t have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you’ll be traveling with friends. You don’t need to pay the single supplement if you’re traveling alone. We’ll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself.
For selected trips, including cruises, we will charge half the single supplement if you request a roommate but we can’t match you with someone.
This tour starts and ends in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The main daily activities involve hiking, cycling, kayaking, zip-lining and walking around town on guided tours.
