Dates for your diary in 2020: Garden Trips

WILD FLOWER MEADOWS OF SLOVENIA - 27th May - 2nd June 2020

We are proposing a trip in May 2020 to Slovenia.  This will include free time in the historic university town of Ljubljana and at picturesque Lake Bled.
On this occasion we will not be visiting any gardens. The highlight of the trip will be Lake Bohinj and its surrounding wild flower meadows which lie at the heart of the Triglav National Park in the Julian Alps of Slovenia.
At present this area remains a magical haven of natural beauty and tranquillity.
This trip will entail a little more walking than usual and applicants should be reasonably fit and able to walk a mile or two on the flat. More taxing excursions to see wild orchids may be available for those who like a challenge.

Dates:-   27th May – 2nd June 2020
Hotel Accommodation:- 2 nights in Bled, 3 nights in Bohinj & 1 night en route in Italy.  Dinner, Bed & Breakfast
Travel:-  Air & coach

We estimate the cost will be in the region of £700 based on two people sharing and depending on the cost of flights and the rate of exchange.

Irene Randow   01275 857208   or   Jen Thyer   01275 462234
