After a successful first year at Hotel Spik, we are pleased to be returning to this stunning location in the Slovenian countryside,. From the hotel terrace we have amazing views of the surrounding mountains.
We use the bedrooms in the three-star part of the hotel. On the site, there is a swimming pool, beach volleyball and a badminton court plus table tennis, all of which are available free of charge. Other options, which are payable locally, include a water pool and sauna complex, plus bike hire.
Walks available from the hotel include a trail to a waterfall and there is also a cycle path towards Kranjska Gora. If you would like to head further afield on the free days, there is a bus stop 10 mins walk from the hotel.
Our optional package of three excursions includes Ljubljana, Postojna Caves and Lake Bled.
The capital city, Ljubljana, is small and pretty, easy to get around, and full of surprises. It offers rich tradition, youthful vibrancy, and numerous green spaces. Ljubljana has a medieval city centre with a castle and beautiful Baroque buildings. Picturesque bridges across the River Ljubljanica and the vast Tivoli Park, stretching into the pedestrianised city centre, make up the mosaic of the city.
The Postojna Caves are an amazing natural site - perhaps the most impressive public caves in Europe. They are a fantastic web of tunnels and galleries, with an astonishing diversity. As the only cave system that can be reached using an underground train, its easy access makes it the perfect place to explore. We travel for 2km on the cave train before continuing the tour on foot.
We also visit the striking Predjama castle, which was built in the mouth of a cave, high up in a cliff face. Its intriguing history includes a secret passage which enabled the inhabitants to repeatedly replenish their supplies, to the confusion of their attackers.
After each day’s activity we meet together to hear an inspiring Bible talk.
Join us this summer to explore a hidden gem at the heart of Europe.
