If you are interested in the newest developments in the meeting and event industry of Slovenia, Intours DMC shares its in-depth local knowledge and presents five C&IT novelties.
1. Newly opened Eco Resort beneath Velika Planina
In September 2016, a new, sustainable resort, the Eco Resort beneath Velika Planina will open its doors. In the untouched nature of the Kamnik Alps, half-hour drive from the capital of Ljubljana, the Eco Resort will offer a unique experience in an environment coloured by tradition and ethnological value. The resort will include 30 cottages, resembling the unique architecture of real herdsmen’s huts and 20 glamping tents, offering event planners an opportunity to privatize the resort for their incentive groups.
2. Completely refurbished Hotel Slovenija 5*
The recently refurbished Hotel Slovenija will open in June 2016. The five-star hotel will be the newest luxurious five-star hotel in Portoroz. It will feature 128 rooms and 16 suits as well as a modern congress centre with a view of the sea as well as two top-class Mediterranean restaurants. The à la carte restaurant will treat guests with its creative, healthy and “Brain Food” concept. The Istrian Tapas, a trendy restaurant on the Adriatic Coast, will impress the guests with modern Istrian cuisine.
3. Culinary journey through Slovenia
When searching for a unique incentive program in Slovenia, Intours DMC advises the guests to embark upon a culinary journey through Slovenia. Influenced by the diversity of its landscape, history and neighbouring cultures, the Slovenian cuisine is very diverse. Starting the journey in Ljubljana, where the highest quality of modern gastronomic delights is offered in a number of restaurants, an incentive group heads towards the Adriatic Coast. On their way the guests can stop for some prosciutto tasting, while they can learn about fish breeding and 750-years-old tradition of salt production on the Coast. Exploring the inland Istria, the guests can embark on a truffle hunt, finishing with some truffle and wine tasting. In the Alpine region the group can get to know the rich culinary heritage by tasting the Bled cream cake or the traditional Potica.
4. Glamourous surprise in pristine nature
A special outdoor adventure is jeep safari, when the participant can get behind the wheel and test their driving skills on a test and training range. They can drive jeeps through the really rough terrain of south eastern Slovenia, exploring the Slovenian countryside off the beaten path. Under the guidance of experienced instructors, the guests can blind drive on the training area, rescue vehicles stuck in mud and enjoy abseiling 70 meters in depth. To add a bit of glamour and elegance to an adventure day in nature, Intours DMC suggests to surprise the guests with a fine dining experience in the middle of the nature park. An elegant culinary experience is in a striking contrast to the mud-drenched off road 4×4 adventure and a glamorous surprise to all guests.
5. Yoga Class in the Postojna Cave
Postojna Cave, Slovenia’s most remarkable natural sight, is the best-known cave in Europe. A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, the astonishing diversity of Karst features as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for such popularity of the cave. For an offbeat experience, an incentive group can shortly visit the cave and stop in a magnificent underground hall to practice yoga. Having a yoga class in the peaceful surrounding and inspiring atmosphere of the Postojna Cave, is one of the money can’t buy experiences Intours DMC proudly proposes.
