Discover Slovenia’s secret corners committed to sustainable tourism 

The European Destinations of Excellence Network or EDEN for short is a European network of relatively unknown, but substantively exceptional places and regions that invite tourists with new experiences and discoveries. The European Destinations of Excellence are boutique and mysterious and committed to sustainable and responsible tourism. They are selected within the framework of a topic determined by the European Commission every two years. The network includes seven hidden gems of Slovenia that are waiting to be uncovered and experienced. Let them charm you. Explore their rich natural and cultural heritage and breathe in the freshness of green nature.

 

Meet Slovenia’s seven destinations of excellence

Slovenia prides itself on exceptionally picturesque nature and diverse culture and flavours, which is seen also in the diversity of the European Destinations of Excellence.

 

Koper

Feel the culturally and historically rich old town centre of Koper and the varied green countryside surrounding it.

Brda Hills

Try local delights and noble wines saturated with energy of the sun and love of the local people for their soil and tradition.

Idrija 

Follow the story of Idrija, where lace is interwoven with mercury and where new ideas are borne from the rich cultural heritage.

Valley of the River Soča 

Take part in the wave of active adventures in the Valley of the River Soča, one of the most magnificent Alpine rivers, which has been writing unique stories for centuries with its emerald reflections: from folk tales and legends to memories of the atrocities of the First World War.

Solčavsko

Stop time and seek refuge in the embrace of pristine nature in Solčavsko, which excites with its impressive mountain scenery, harmony of three glacial valleys (Logar Valley, Matkov Kot Valley and Robanov Kot Valley) and the hospitality of the locals, who live in accordance with surrounding nature.

Laško

Health and well-being, brewing tradition and beekeeping are the pride of Laško, the friendly destination accessible to everyone. Swim in Slovenia’s warmest river, stir your imagination with fairies and the devil, Green George and the folk hero Peter Klepec, and feast your eyes on the natural and cultural particularities of the region situated by the River Kolpa.

  • She has a thousand things to say to you... and a thousand reasons not to 💫
  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
@joalimaldives
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia. 
Click the link in bio and join our Adventure Travel Movement in Finland in March 2019! Spaces are very limited 😊 and it’s an adventure of a lifetime in the most authentic way!! ♥️
  • Dubai still super hot but nothing a weekend at the pool won’t fix! It’s still summer here with 40 degrees Celsius... What’s the weather like where you are?
