Solo Holiday in Slovenia

Come and join us on a short break for solo travellers in Slovenia! Whether you are a single parent with children too old to join you on holiday, or just feel like a break on your own, this solo trip has something for everyone. You’ll have one of our team members there to look after you throughout the trip, while a local guide shows you the highlights of Slovenia and gives you an insight into the country’s varied culture and history.

For this solo holiday, we will be staying at the beautiful 4-star boutique Hotel Triglav in Bled, with its breathtaking views of Lake Bled and the Julian Alps beyond. Rich in history and culture, our hotel features original antiques and artwork, and offers all the comforts our discerning guests need after a day out exploring the main sights of this beautiful country. We have reserved comfortable and spacious double rooms for single occupancy with balcony and lake view, which come with cable TV, telephone, safety deposit box and mini bar, and an ensuite bathroom with hairdryer and bathrobe.

Our hotel also has an indoor pool and Finnish sauna, a terrace with lake view to enjoy your coffee or a drink, and a restaurant specialising in local cuisine with a modern twist. Breakfast is in buffet form, while dinner is a 3-course meal with table service. If you have any special dietary needs, these will be accommodated, naturally.

Slovenia is a small Slavic country south of Austria, part of the EU and the most northerly region of the former Yugoslavia. It borders Austria to the north, Hungary to the east, Croatia to the south and Italy to the west. Famous for its vast network of caves and rivers, most notably the renowned Postojna site, and its numerous vineyards and endless forests and mountains, Slovenia has rapidly been transformed into Europe’s best-kept secret for holidaymakers. With a population of fewer than 300,000, the beautiful city of Ljubljana is one of the smallest capitals in Europe and its much-envied national parks are one of the few parts of Europe still to be roamed by brown bears in the wild. Due to its Alpine-Mediterranean climate, Slovenia benefits from dry hot summers.

Bled is Slovenia’s beauty spot and one of the prettiest Alpine resorts in Europe. Famed for its emerald green lake, picture-postcard church on an islet and medieval castle, Bled is home to some of the highest peaks in the Julian Alps and Karawanks mountain ranges. The main sights are the beautiful Lake Bled itself and Bled Island. There is plenty to do here, from leisurely hikes around the lake to ascending the old castle perched on top of a steep cliff above Lake Bled. And to ensure you see as much as possible of this beautiful country on this solo holiday, we have put together a programme, which includes some of the best things to do in Slovenia.

Slovenia is a new destination in our solo holiday programme. Please see below the testimonials from our last solo trip, which was our solo ski holiday in Schladming, Austria, in March 2017.

"Being the first SPOH ski trip without our children I was a little bit apprehensive before the holiday. The size of the group was perfect, not too small and not too large that the group gets divided. The first couple of days was strange as I missed the noise of the children but after that it was one of the best SPOH holidays I have been on. All the adults were nice and with different skiing ability. I will most likely book this trip again!"

"SPoH know how to put a holiday together. They make sensible and wise choices regarding location, hotels and facilities. Sandra, our host, made every effort possible to ensure that each and everyone of our needs were catered for which is not easy. Unlike some companies which just meet and greet you in the morning and evening, SPoH stay with you helping you to find the best bits and get the most out of your holiday. It requires great skill, patience, judgement and careful handling to manage a group of unknowns especially on a ski slope but Sandra made it look easy. Thank you for a wonderful time. I look forward to travelling with you again."

"A great way to meet other single parents where the kids have flown the nest - lots in common and time to have fun and share stories!"
