Slovenia is a corner of Europe you will love. There is a special atmosphere here, a mix of natural stunning landscapes and beautiful cultural heritage, and a fun and relaxed population that will enchant you.
Slovenians really know how to live well, and whether you are looking for outdoor sports, museums or nightlife, here you will find something for all tastes and ages. And at very reasonable prices. Ljubljana is a charming city, complete with a castle, art museums and a historical centre with shops and great food and drinks, but that is just the beginning.
The Soca river has formed through the centuries a stunning valley, with waterfalls and rocky gorges and the mere colour of its water is incredible. It is considered one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe and you can do a number of adapted water sports there, from kayaking to rafting (or some good old-fashioned fishing!).
Slovenia is also famous for its wine region and the quality of local food: a lot has been done, especially in recent years, to revive a gastronomic tradition that was well worth the effort. If you like your food, you’ll want to note a few addresses before landing in Ljubljana, so you are sure not to miss anything. On your list there shoud absolutely be the Mohant cheese, the Carniolan sausage, the Potika sweet delicacy, Karst hams and salamis and the Idrija žlikrofi (curious?).
If you like a delightful seaside town, then Piran is the place (and you can visit the salt mines). You want to relax in a SPA or go to the beach? Then you have to go to Portoroz. You want to ski? There is Rogla. You want it all? You have to ask our Slovenian partners No Limits Tours.
The team at No Limits is young, dedicated, specialized and fun. They are an experienced tour operator and know their country very well: they benefit from direct experience with people with disabilities – and they also consult on how to remove architectural barriers. They can take you for a guided tour or sports activity, or they can set you up for a full trip and a bag of fun, organizing all the transfers, renting equipment and finding the perfect hotel for your needs.
So if you want to do it all: get sporty, get lazy, fill up with nature, culture and great food… Maja, Petra, Anze, Danijel and Miha are there for you. Check out a selection of their No Limits tours or ask them for something tailored to your taste and rythm!

Slovenia is a tiny country (only two million inhabitants) but it has done some very good work for accessibility, especially for people with reduced mobility.
Ljubljana, the capital city, is flat and largely pedestrianized and served by accessible electric vehicles. This city is one of the most wheelchair friendly places to visit and its main attraction, Ljubljana Castle, is reachable via accessible funicular or bus-train. Many of the centre’s famous bridges have recently been made accessible, and also the award-winning Butcher´s Bridge, which allows wheelchair users access to the boats.
Moving around in the rural areas is a little less easy, but there is plenty of facilities that are at least partially adapted, making your trip more pleasurable. This includes sports facilities, such as ski or rafting, and the beaches (yes, Slovenia is tiny but has a mix of countryside, mountains and the coast).
The airport in Ljubljana is all fully accessible except for the Business Lounge. It is equipped with a passenger service, to be booked through the airline 48 hours in advance if you need it at the arrival, while if you are leaving from Ljubljana you can call assistance directly at the airport. Instructions and location of the meeting desk are at the link below: of course it is better to reserve it in advance, but this way you know that in case of an emergency you’ll be taken care of properly nevertheless.
