Stroll in the late-summer sun on a self-guided walking holiday through The Karst – Slovenia’s breath-taking area of woodlands, meadows and unspoilt villages. Experience vast cave systems, rivers that vanish into cliffs and a mesmerising lake while walking between Ljubljana and the lively Italian seaport of Trieste. Marvel at the gorgeous colours and aromas of the grape harvest on local farms while spending the evenings sampling home-produced food and wine.

The six-night trip costs from £680 pp (two sharing) including B&B, some other meals, taxi transfer to the start and luggage transfers. Flights extra.
