If you love earning that sense of achievement in a trip and are looking for a unique adventure holiday, this is the trip for you. Join us as we show you and your friends the wonder of open air lake swimming and the stunning sights you’ll find when you escape the pool and discover open water in the emerald green lakes of the Triglav National Park. You’ll not only gain confidence swimming in the open water, but you’ll also discover along the way the hidden beauty of Slovenia.
Our trip includes a swim in the iconic Lake Bled and a crossing to the 17th Century church on Bled Island, a swim around the beautiful Lake Bohinj itself, and exploring the national park and Kozjak waterfall by foot. With such an action-packed four day adventure, we know it's important to recharge your batteries and the Hotel Jezero on the banks of the Bohinj Lake is the perfect place for it. The hotel offers comfortable accommodation, beautiful scenery, friendly staff and there's even a pool if you just can't get enough of swimming. The hotel is a central hub for all our excursions by land and water, and a great place to explore the charm of the mountainous Slovenian landscape.
