Slovenian Holiday & Dance Experience

Thirty years ago, long before Strictly Come Dancing was even a twinkle Len Goodman’s eye, Philip Wylie formed Holiday and Dance following on from a social dance festival in the West Country. The festival continues to this day and the Dance Holiday People, as they have come to be known, have gone from strength to

A Taste Of Slovenia

Slovenia is a small country but don’t that fool you, it has been heavily influenced by the neighbouring countries of Austria, Italy and Croatia but still holds its own with some unforgettable culinary flavours.

Hiking In Bohinj: From Ribcev Laz to Ukanc

This year Bohinj has 22 marked hiking trails and as the Inghams representative in Bohinj I set myself the challenge to complete all of them over the coming weeks. This week I ticked another three off the list. Route number two takes you along the South side of Lake Bohinj from Ribcev Laz to Ukanc.

The Legend Of Goldenhorn

Slovenia is a country full of Myths and Legends and as you travel around the country you will understand why; we have so many special natural attractions that it is easy to imagine what inspired sure stories.
