A SPECTACULAR IMMERSION INTO THE MAGIC OF SLOVENIA, WITH POSTCARD PERFECT GREEN LAKES, MOUNTAIN PEAKS, EMERALD WATERS AND A VISIT TO THE COASTAL TOWN OF PIRAN
We are delighted to bring you this wonderful three-night short break to Slovenia. This trip provides the perfect relaxing getaway, based at the stunning 4* Hotel Bohinj, which has been awarded the Ecolabel certificate for its ecological efficiency. Escape to postcard-perfect blue green lakes, surrounded by mountain peaks, and let us look after you.
This weekend starts on Friday and finishes on Monday. Swims are gentle (2-4km) and all ages and swim speeds are welcome. Swim to Lake Bled’s island before lunch, explore beautiful Lake Bohinj and wander through the pine forest. Transfers are included, so all you need to do is book flights and let us know when you will arrive!
Duration: Friday to Monday – 3 nights (see GETTING THERE tab for flight suggestions and transfer information)
Water temperature: 22-26˚C
Daily swimming distance: Most distances will be around the 1.5-2km mark, with an optional longer Bohinj crossing of 4km for those who are keen. Swim dips in stunning river locations are also built into the itinerary.
Swimming ability: Ideally you should be comfortable swimming up to 1.5km in a pool or in open water, however speed doesn’t matter. This trip is about experiencing this stunning part of the world, rather than cracking out huge distances. Unsure? Contact us!
Are non-swimmers welcome? Non swimming partners are welcome to join the tour and make the most of the spectacular scenery. Please note we use SUPS / Kayaks as safety escorts on these trips so non-swimming partners will not be able to watch from a boat as with some other SwimQuest trips.

With a relaxed atmosphere, year-round warm water and a kaleidoscope of marine life, in The Maldives you will find yourself swimming over teeming coral reefs, floating over schools of fish, mingling with mantas and soaring with rays. If you’re lucky, you may even bump into a pod of playful dolphins. This is a true ‘bucket list’ swim vacation.
