Your Holiday

We offer an all-inclusive week-long walking holiday package based at our award-winning hotel, Pri Lenart. Available dates run from Saturday to Saturday, with pick-up and drop-off at Ljubljana airport, or city centre, included in the price of your holiday, for more information take a look at what's included in your holiday package.

During your stay, we offer a range of guided walks in the beautiful countryside surrounding our hotel, as well as some further afield. You can choose to join us for guided walks, or take a route card and explore the surrounding area independently. Our guided walks usually last around 6-7 hours including stops for refreshments, picnic lunch, etc. Take a look at our walking routes for more information.

There is a free day during the week, Wednesday, when we don't offer a guided walk, but instead, provide time for other activities. Transport to the pretty Medieval town of Skofja Loka is included in the price of your holiday and you can spend a relaxing day visiting the town and its excellent ethnographical museum. From Skofja Loka you could also choose to catch one of the regular buses which run to  Ljubljana, where you can explore Slovenia's tiny capital.

Alternative day trips are available by booking a taxi (at an extra cost) and there are many destinations to visit such as the lace and mercury museums in Idrija, Postonja Caves or the coast to name just a few. On a Wednesday evening, the hotel kitchen is closed and instead, we will drive you to a local organic farm to enjoy a truly authentic experience of a traditional Slovenian dinner made from all home-produced ingredients - this is included in the holiday price.

In addition to walking and exploring the local area, we can help to arrange many other guided activities from fishing experiences to e-mountain bike tours.

Fitness Levels for Walking Terrain

To enjoy the accompanied walks we recommend that you are comfortable walking in hilly areas at a steady pace for around 6-7 hours each day (including rest stops). Walks generally include up to 800 metres ascent which involves walking steadily uphill, sometimes for several hours - but the rewards are great in terms of views, and there is usually a mountain hut for rest and refreshments at the top of the longer ascents!

Generally, one ascent will take you to a flattish area where the views are spectacular, and from there the rest of the walk is quite level and then finishes with a descent. If you don't regularly do day walks in hilly terrain, please ensure you are fit enough to enjoy the walking programme by doing some aerobic exercise and hill walking prior to your holiday!

Please note we do not accept children under the age of 14 years, due to the nature of the hotel and the unsuitability of the walking for children. Please advise us before booking if you are over the age of 70 or if you have any health issues so we can discuss the suitability of the holiday for you.

Our Reviews

"I can honestly say I do not have a negative comment about Zana, Luka, Pri Lenart Hotel, all the staff, Slovenia or the walking adventures. From the friendliest welcome from Luka at the airport to saying a sad goodbye a week later to Zana and Luka we had the best time. Slovenia is an incredible country with the most amazing views, countryside, people and things to do. Pri Lenart Hotel was absolutely spotless, a first class retreat in the mountains, and the best hosts in Zana and Luka. The most delicious food from morning, to lunch, to afternoon tea to incredible dinner, everything explained and from different parts of the world. Zana also bent over backwards to accommodate different dietary requirements. The after dinner chats over a schnapps was one of my many favourite moments. Hot tub outside was marvellous after a days walking. My walking fitness was not quite up to par but Luka was so thoughtful in adapting walks for me and making me part of the group/ team. I could go on and on but must finish with a huge thank you to Zana, Luka and all the team for a magnificent holiday. Could not recommend Pri Lenart enough."

"'We will make sure you will enjoy the walks, food, learning about our society, history and culture and in general have a great time'. Not my words, but Luka's 'high bar' when we booked. Well, he and Zana certainly did all of that and more! Such generous hospitality is very special. Luka and Zana provided us and our fellow guests with wonderful food and accomodation in a stunning landscape, led us on amazing walks in glorious weather and were so generous with their time. All of which made for an unforgettable holiday."

"We came with high expectations, but Luca & Jana took things to another level. Their care & attention to all their guests was first class, Jana’s meals were exceptional & Luca was such fun & entertained us all, both on our wonderful treks & during meals. Slovenia is a great country with stunning scenery- I can honestly say that this was one of our most memorable holidays & we will definitely be back- we cannot recommend both Slovenia & Luca’s & Jana’s hospitality high enough."
