Tucked away in a snowy corner of Europe, the distinct cultures of Slovenia, Austria and Italy come together.

Upon peaceful plateau and below the craggy spires of the Alps, we’ll explore this haven of snow and sensational vistas by way of our skis. We’ll get to know locals and their heritage though hearty cuisine, reviving drink and enchanting yarns about generations past. As we travel, we’ll enjoy a traditional Slovenian cooking class, we’ll have a chance to drive a dogsled under the guidance of an Iditarod musher (and we’ll treat ourselves to relaxing and invigorating sauna treatments). Join VBT in exploring a European destination full of unforgettable scenery, crisp temperatures and warm, inviting locals.
