It seems a lot of journalists and photographers, bloggers and Instagrammers visited Slovenia over the summer, with their content now coming online. Much of this is just people posing at Bled and Dragon Bridge, but the latest high-end offering is from National Geographic, presenting a 10-day road trip that takes in much of the country. While missing out on the delights of the south east, the tour takes in the following locations, and thus with any luck will help expand tourism outside the usual hotspots and inspire visitors to spend more than the usual one or two days in the country:

Day 1: Ljubljana – Paddleboarding, the Old Town, fresh water and the Castle

Day 2: Alpine Slovenia – Bovec and Hiša Franko

Day 3: Maribor – Lent and the Old Vine House

Day 4: Logar Valley and Rinka Falls

Day 5: Pannonian Slovenia – Podčetrtek and thermal spas

Day 6: Lendava and the Vinarium Tower

Day 7: The black waters of Moravske Toplice

Day 8: Portorož and Piran

Day 9: Škocjan Caves

Day 10: The saltpans of Sečovlje Salina Nature Park and some time at the Thalasso Spa Lepa Vida

The story was produced as part of National Geographic’s series of partner content with the aid of the Slovenian Tourist Board, and you can find more of those stories here, along with some of the great pictures the publication is famous for, here. If they work as intended then they should help expand tourism outside the usual hotspots and inspire visitors to spend more than the usual one or two days in the country.
