New gourmet and cultural experiences in Slovenia

Pocket-sized Slovenia is one of my favourite destinations in Europe. 

Clean and green with terrific people and great wine and food experiences, Slovenia is easy to get around and easy to get to - just catch a bus from Venice. 

Four new experiences have been added to the Slovenia Unique Experiences collection; the Yummy Market Walk at the Ljubljana market, Fish & Fly Trio, with fly fishing on three rivers;  Meet Meat & Eat at Kodila in Markišavci; and Sound of Holidays in Bodešče. 

The tours - added to experiences that include cheese tastings and discovering local brown bears - are all designed to underline Slovenia's position as a green boutique destination for five-star experiences. 

Yummy Market Walk

The urban experience of the Ljubljana market as a central city hub is based on a personalised, local experience. Walk around the market, accompanied by a local guide who reveals the most interesting stories ond shows hidden secrets. Guests taste fresh seasonal delicacies produced by local farmers from the vicinity of Ljubljana and finish their visit with a  fresh local breakfast. 

Fish & Fly Trio

The Fish & Fly Trio tour takes place on three Slovenian rivers (the Kolpa, Krka and Soča) using 'catch and release' principle for three different fish species (grayling, brown and marble trout). It connects fishing guides, accommodation and gastronomy providers of three destinations. Guests are transported by helicopter between individual locations and sleeps and get to taste the local delicacies of three regions. 

Meet Meat and Eat

For the last twenty years, Janko Kodila has been connecting top Pomurje providers from the left and right banks of the Mura River through various products, including Gourmet over Mura. The Meet Meat & Eat product is an experiential experience of the Kodila culinary centre in Markišavci. With a chef, guests walk with the beef cows and explore organic, social farm Korenika. This is followed by cooking grilled meat delicacies and tasting beef and vegetarian dishes. 

Sound of Holidays is an interpretation of cultural heritage, folk tradition, customs and habits, folk singing, dancing and music. The event takes place at Sodar's Homestead, a more than 500-year-old house in Bodešče. Participants can join the artists for traditional dances and festivities from Gorenjska, while also discovering ancient clothes, tasting local delicacies and listening to village stories.
