Best time for me to visit Slovenia in the spring?

Jump to last reply

I prefer to travel to Europe and other locations in the second half of September as the weather is still nice but the crowds are greatly reduced from the summer months.

Below is my itinerary that I was all booked for to Venice/Slovenia starting this September. Unfortunately, I suffered an injury recently that required surgery last week so it is looking like I'm going to have to cancel. I'm pretty bummed about it :-( .

While there is still a chance I'll heal enough to still make this fall's trip, it is a long shot. So, my options would be to push the trip to next fall (for obvious reasons I'd prefer not to wait that long) or to look at a date in the spring. For those who know Slovenia, what time period meets the criteria stated above as well as the snow having safely cleared from the roads/valleys/etc. of the mountainous areas listed below with no more possibility of a winter storm? I'm into photography so I do like the idea of spring wildflowers in the mountain meadows! My itinerary would remain the same.

Days 1-3 in Venice
Day 4 - Venice to Bovec
Day 5 - Bovec to Lake Bled on Route 206 through Vrsic pass
Day 6 - Second night in Lake Bled
Day 7 -Lake Bled to Bohinj for the day and then onto Ljubljana
Day 8 - Ljubljana
Day 9 - Day trip circular route to Jezersko - briefly through Austria and then into the Logar Valley - Kamnik - back to Ljubljana
Day 10 - Day trip to Predjama Castle, the Postojna Caves and Sleznik castle
Day 11 - Another day in Ljubljana.
Day 12 - Return to Venice for two nights

Thanks!
