Please help me solidify itinerary - Slovenia, Vienna, Budapest

Jump to last reply

I'm headed to central/eastern Europe for 3 weeks in late July-early August. So excited! I'd like to get comments and suggestions on my tentative itinerary. I'm traveling with my husband, we're in our 30s and enjoy the outdoors, architecture, history, art/culture in moderate doses, and unusual or unique places/experiences. We'll be camping and/or staying at tourist farms for this trip, so no hotel recommendations are needed. A one-time splurge at a great restaurant is possible, since the rest of the time we'll be cooking or otherwise eating on a budget.

Arrive LJU Wed Jul 22 @ noon
2 nights Ljubljana, rent car
Drive to Triglav, visit Idrija and Kobarid en route
2 nights Lepena (near Bovec) - rafting trip, hiking, etc.
2 nights Bohinj - hiking, day trips to Bled, beekeeping museum
Drive to Ptuj OR Logarska Dolina, visit Kropa & Skofja Loka en route
1 night stay in Pjuf or Logarska Dolina (tourist farm?)
Drop off car in Maribor Wed Jul 29, train to Vienna
~6 nights Vienna - including day trip to Melk Abbey
Train to Budapest Tues Aug 4
~7 nights Hungary - Budapest and possible overnight to Danube bend area
Leave BUD Tues Aug 11 @ 9:10 am

My main questions at this point have to do with allocation of time - should I decrease time in Hungary or Vienna to have a bit longer in Slovenia? We had been thinking of spending a day or 2 seeing the Karst region, for example, or could add a day to one or more of our stops.
Also, I'd love to hear feedback from anyone who has rafted the Soca River and can recommend a company, or give opinions on tourist farms in any of the places I mentioned staying.
