Slovenia’s unique sleeps: camping, glamping and offbeat lodgings

Blessed with natural splendour in abundance, Slovenia has been crafting itself a well-deserved reputation for clean, green travel.

The journey is a spectacular tour of Slovenia’s upland highlights, climbing through mountain villages along the Soča River, passing through superb Alpine scenery near Lake Bohinj, and on past Lake Bled’s iconic castle.

Some services continue south from Nova Gorica to Sežana, from where you can hop onwards to Trieste via a historic tram.Tom Hall (Lonely Planet)
