Slovenia and Istria 13 day itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello to all. I am planning a trip with my boyfriend for late September to Slovenia and Istria. Would like to see the most scenic places, such as fairy tale, lush green valleys and mountain type scenery in Slovenia and then a little taste of coastal and most importantly the hilltop towns in Istria (hoping for an old world Italy feel). We plan on renting a car, ideally having scenic drives in transit, easy hiking, renting boats on the lakes. We like museums (19th century art and history) but will sacrifice museums for more time to take in the scenery. Maybe Kobarid WWI museum if a very rainy day. We do not want a too rushed pace. We are flying to Venice b/c we can get a direct flight there, spending the day and night there and plan on taking GoOpti transfer the next day to Ljubljana, Slovenia. I have been to Venice before but BF has not. Need a little help with itinerary.

Day 1: Arrive in Venice, spend the night.
Day 2: Shuttle transfer from Venice to Ljubljana, spend the afternoon and night.
Day 3: Drive from Ljubljana to Logar Valley
Day 4: Logar valley (Logarska Dolina) - hiking (hope to get scenery reminiscent of Bernese Oberland)
Day 5: Logar Valley
Day 6: Drive to Bled. Lake Bled.
Day 7: Lake Bled (Vintgar gorge in morning)
Day 8 and 9: Bohinj area and more of Triglav National park and Soca river valley
Days 10: Goriska brda region? (no wine tasting visits, just scenery). Drive to Istria, stay maybe in Rovinj for a couple of nights.
Days 11,12, 13: Visit inner hill top towns of Istria (Grozjnan, Motovun, etc.) and more of Istria coast.
Day 14: Drive back to Slovenia (Piran) to drop off rental car and look into GoOpti for transport back to Venice.
Day 15: Flight out of Venice.

Still trying to figure out an itinerary, especially for Istria. Not sure if we will go all the way down to Pula or not and if 4 days is enough in Istria. Am I giving enough time to the Logar Valley region for hiking? Am I giving too much time for the Triglav national park area?

Any insight would be appreciated.
