Fly Water Slovenia Europe

Fly Water Travel is proud to offer a unique and exclusive array of custom tours in the remarkable nation of Slovenia. The tiny nation of Slovenia (which borders Croatia, Italy, Austria and Hungary) showcases the grandeur of the Swiss Alps, the quaint charm of Tuscany's wine country and crystal clear trout streams that rival New Zealand's finest. Moreover, this small, exceedingly safe country of 2 million is among the most progressive, well-educated and greenest in the EU where the majority of the population speaks impeccable English. Slovenia is not only a mecca for fly fishers but also for foodies, wine enthusiast, cyclists, boaters, hikers, skiers and climbers. 

Together with our in-country partner, Fly Water Travel now offers some of the greatest custom couples tours imaginable. These trips are perfectly suited to groups of two to six guests but larger groups are easily accommodated. All you need to do is let us know the desired dates and duration of your trip, how many days the angling contingent might like to fish, the nature of the guided activities for those that will not be donning waders, and from there we will help design a custom trip that will show you the best of what this remarkable little country has to offer. Your head guide/driver will pick your group up at the airport and every detail will be taken care of from that point forward. 

While these trips are most popular for couples and families, they can also be built for serious anglers who want to fish hard every day. The county offers countless rivers and regions with excellent sight fishing for rainbow, brown and indigenous marble trout, as well as native grayling. Come experience the wonders of our new favorite country before the rest of the world catches on! 

Fly Water Slovenia Location: Slovenia borders Croatia to the south, Italy to the west, Austria to the north and Hungary to the east. Many of our most popular tours focus on the northwestern region and include the Julian Alps, the Soca River Valley, and the western wine country. 

Fly Water Slovenia Fishing Program: Fly Water Slovenia has great many angling options, the vast majority of which are walk and wade opportunities. There are also some great float-tubing options where, at specific times of the year, guests can target large wild fish.  Slovenia is known for excellent sight fishing and their rivers tend to all be under special regulations. In most cases, rivers are single fly only and some rivers do not allow the use of additional weight or strike indicators. Where our guest will fish will depend on the dates of their trip and the nature of their trip as well as their preferences and abilities. 

Fly Water Slovenia Additional Experiences: Fly Water Slovenia is a program ideally suited to groups with a broad range of interests and travelers who elect not to fish will find an endless array of thoughtfully guided activities to enjoy. Our partner in Slovenia is very well connected and can arrange for all of the following.

  • City tours of Ljubljana

  • Walking tours of villages

  • Lite hiking to waterfalls and other points of natural interest

  • Longer hikes in the Alps and other mountain ranges

  • Cooking classes

  • Road biking

  • Mountain biking

  • Whitewater boating 

  • Tours of numerous WWI sites and museums

  • Winery tours with tastings

  • Canyoneering

  • Via Ferrata climbing

  • Resort and off-piste skiing/snowboarding

  • Winter fly fishing for huchen

Fly Water Slovenia Meals and Accommodations:  Fly Water Slovenia is plugged into a vast network of fine hotels, boutique inns, and restaurants. Broadly speaking, the accommodations are very nice and the dining experiences tend to be exceptional. When working out the foundation of your custom trip please be sure to let us know how much emphasis to place on meals, accommodations and or wine tastings. In some cases, somewhat simpler meals and accommodations can be arranged to pair with trips that are solely focused on fishing, but generally speaking, these trips are of the highest quality. For guests particularly fond of fine dining experiences, a night at the world-renowned Hiša Franko can often be arranged with advance notice. If you are looking for a budget tour of the country with the most simple meals and accommodations, this program will not be a good match.

Multi-Sport Adventures
