Slovenia/Northern Croatia in mid-August - hotel and other advice?

Jump to last reply

Hi - we are looking to travel to Slovenia/northern Croatia in mid-August. How busy will it be? Will we need to book all our hotels in advance?

Also, I'm wondering about distances. We will be flying into/out of Zagreb, and not counting the two flight travel days, we will have 9 days on the ground. We will be traveling with our 10 year old daughter. We want to travel around for the start of the trip and then spend about 3-4 days at the end in one place. It all looks so beautiful, that it is hard to choose what to see and not see in such a short time. We live in London, so would like to have some beautiful nature, hikes, swims, maybe some rafting/canoeing horseback riding, plus some stops in charming towns, probably as part of a day trip or en-route to somewhere else. We tend to be somewhat of slow travelers, rather than rushing around trying to see everything, but WOW, it looks all looks so beautiful, that some road-tripping is called for!

Based on initial research, these are some of the areas which interest me, but I'm not sure about distances, or if how to link them all together (apologies in advance for any spelling mistakes!)

Plitvice
Rovinj and maybe Piran or Trieste
Lipic to see the horses
Soca
Bled or Bohinj (probably end up there for our last 3-4 days)

Any thoughts, suggestions would be very welcome. Is Zagreb worth spending a day in? Or Ljubljana? Any suggestions of great places when we can stop en-route to somewhere, walk around, have lunch, then continue on to more natural beauty?

Many many thanks
