There are tons of reasons why Slovenia is the perfect destination for a family vacation. It is a country that has everything you need to spend your vacation well: sea, mountains, lakes, fairy-tale landscapes and magical towns. Browse through the best campsites in Slovenia and see how much this corner of Europe has to offer!
Although Slovenia is a tiny country, what it has to offer could be divided into several countries. It is sometimes called Europe in miniature - a surprising diversity of landscapes is concentrated in its small area: the Adriatic coast, impressive panoramas of the Julian Alps, picturesque lakes and unique architecture. As a starting point for exploring this amazing country, it is worth choosing a camping or campsite - Slovenia has a lot to offer in this matter.
Lake Bled is one of the most popular places in Slovenia and its holiday flagship. An island grows out of its surface, with a small church with a soaring spire and the Alps in the background - a sight so characteristic that some people come to Slovenia only to capture it in photos.
Camping Bled is the perfect place for a weekend as well as a longer vacation. You can swim in the lake in designated areas. Thanks to the thermal springs that feed it, Bled is the warmest alpine lake - almost as warm as the Mediterranean Sea! It is also worth visiting the castle, which is located on one of the hills surrounding the reservoir, and going to the Vintgar Gorge. Above all, however, Bled is a great place to relax - time can be filled with baths, walks in the stunning surroundings or trying local specialties in numerous restaurants overlooking the lake.
The second most popular destination in Slovenia is Lake Bohinj. This is a place other than Bled - less crowded and wilder. It is located in a picturesque valley surrounded on one side by the massif of the highest mountain in Slovenia, Triglav, and on the other by the Vogel massif (you can reach its top by gondola). It is worth spending time on Lake Bohinj in an active way: go for a long walk around the reservoir, go for a SUP, go on a bike trip or trekking.
Although Slovenia has only 44 km of coastline, you can find some charming places here - for example Piran, considered one of the most beautiful cities in Istria, or Izola, famous for the best seafood in Slovenia. Where to stay?A good choice will be, for example, the camping Adria Ankaran with a swimming pool and a wide range of sports attractions, located right next to the sea.
Slovenia is not only mountains and the sea. You will also find numerous thermal baths. Caravanning enthusiasts who have visited these areas highly recommend camping Terme Čatež with an aquapark full of various pools, amazing slides and other attractions for children and adults.
