Hiking in Slovenia’s Triglav National Park in the Julian Alps is a must! Slovenia’s nature is so breathtakingly beautiful, it’s a shame not to explore it. Walking through forests along rivers and canyons, guiding you to impressive waterfalls and valleys surrounded by snowcapped mountains; sounds good, doesn’t it? I spent 10 days at the Triglav National Park and even though it rained every day, I still enjoyed all the sights and adventures.
The Bohinj Lake at Slovenia is the prettiest lake of Slovenia, completely surrounded by snow capped mountains, a few cute villages and not overrun (yet) by tourists. I stayed here for 2 nights and if it hadn’t rained the complete first day I probably would’ve done way more like paragliding and taking the cable car to the top of Mount Vogel. But the second day it was sunny and warm so I could really enjoy the beauty of the lake’s surroundings. This is what I suggest to do when you can only spend one day at Bohinj Lake!
My Slovenia road trip at the Julian Alps was probably my best planned ever! I’ve spend just enough time at every place I stayed at to see everything I wanted to explore.
Planning one day at Bled and in need of knowing how to do it? Wondering what to see and do at Lake Bled? I got you covered! A lot of people visiting Ljubljana drive to Bled for one day to admire the clear lake surrounded by the snow capped mountains. In one day you can already explore a lot over there! Here’s what I think you should definitely do!
Madeira sure put a spell on me as soon as I arrived. It made me climb mountains and cliffs I never would’ve dared imagine climbing. I conquered my fear of heights, drove the wickedest roads and I met so many nice people! So I can truly say my stay at Madeira was simply wonderful for many different reasons! So of course I needed to share this Madeira travel guide with you!
Hiking in Madeira is a must if you want to explore the island’s most beautiful places. The canyons, impressive landscapes and waterfalls that are hidden in the lush forests and mountains can’t be seen from the road. Especially the levada walks are very popular. There are about 2500 kms of levadas (irrigation canals) so if I tell you there are over 100 hikes spread over the Portuguese island, you know I don’t exagerate…
The Azores are all about nature with their volcanoes, crater lakes, waterfalls and hot springs. These paradise islands are one of the most impressive and beautiful places I’ve ever visited. Situated in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Azores are still unspoiled, not (yet) packed with tourists and probably the greenest islands you’ll ever encounter in your life. They are a true paradise on earth and they’re not called the Hawaii of Europe for nothing. Oh, and a fun fact; there are more cows than humans.
Flores was the island on top of my Azores bucket list. The moment I saw a photo of the wall of waterfalls at Poço da Alagoinha, I knew Flores needed to be added to my itinerary. That picture bedazzled me so much that I got more and more curious about what this tiny island had to offer. And boy, was I amazed by what I found!
