"Magical Slovenia & Croatia: Alps, Archeology, Architecture, & Adventure" - Sorry, this tour is filled

May 23 - June 8, 2022 

The area surrounding the northern Adriatic Sea is one of the most diverse regions in the Mediterranean - from coastal marshes and plains near Venice to the Julian Alps in Slovenia to the myriad of islands and fjord-like coast of Croatia. This is a land of contrasts. But, the diversity doesn’t end with geology. This region has had centuries of different cultures, religions, and civilizations converging, sometimes merging to create something new while other times ending in brutal conflict. It is a beautiful area, too - often referred to as the eastern riviera!
Our 17-day (16-night) adventure begins in Venice (Italy), then explores the highlights of Slovenia before moving down the rugged Croatian coastline and ending in Dubrovnik. While not a garden-heavy tour, our dates are timed to encounter the best of the wildflower bloom in the region, including a botanical hike near Lake Bohinj during the annual Slovenia Wildflower Festival.  We will see Alpine lakes (including famous Lake Bled), cosmopolitan cities and museums, castles, caves, Roman ruins and antiquities, wineries, medieval hilltop towns, ancient churches and cathedrals, national parks, and coastal resorts!  We will experience the magic and diversity of this northern Adriatic region on our HPSO adventure. Please join us!
