Help with Rough Plans for Slovenia

Jump to last reply

We (me, DH, and 2 children - ages 7 and 9 at the time) are planning to visit Slovenia for 7-8 days at the end of October. Probably flying on 23 October and returning either 30 or 31 October. We plan to hike, see the natural beauty, visit some caves, and relax. My husband is an avid landscape photographer and will be up early every morning and out at sunset every night for photos during the golden hour.

I've read through our Slovenia guidebook and our very rough plan at the moment is to fly into Ljubljana, rent a car, and drive to accommodations. We are thinking of staying the entire week near Lake Bohinj and using that as our base. We prefer to rent an apartment or cottage in one location and then do day trips (unless it is too far and makes sense to move base).

Our day trips are very roughly
Arrival Day - won't get in til late afternoon/evening - just get to accommodation
1 day visiting Ljubljana
1 day at lake bled
1 day at Lake Bohinj
1 day in surrounding areas of Lake Bled or Lake Bohinj (Vintgar Gorge, waterfalls, etc)
1 day at Pradjama Castle, Postojna Caves, Skocjan Caves (should we do both cave areas? is one much better than the other?)
1 day driving the circular route through the alps, stopping where we want along the way, Soca Valley
Departure Day - just get to airport

Does the above sound reasonable? Anything people would suggest we move around? If we had one more day, what extra should we add? Some people on the forums have mentioned Logarska Dolina? Googlemaps shows that as 2 hours one way from Bohinj. Is it worth 4 hours in the car to see this? Something else we should add/change?
