Discover Slovenia’s secret corners committed to sustainable tourism

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.

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.

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
