Because holidays shouldn’t cost the Earth…

Slovenia

By Hollie Wicks

We know life can be tough. Sometimes all you want to do is pack up your things and take a long vacation. Well, what’s stopping you? We’ve hunted high and low for the crème de la crème of eco-friendly hotels across the globe…

Bohinj Park Hotel Eco Resort & Spa

The Bohinj Hotel is located in the Bohinj Valley in Slovenia. Hidden amongst the beautiful scenery of the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park, sophisticated energy systems allow the hotel to run in a sustainable and green fashion.

The hotel offers a family-friendly Aqua park complete with whirlpools, caves and waterfalls. But don’t expect intimacy here as it’s essentially an adventure land for the kids.

Nonetheless, you can reclaim tranquillity on the top floor where an adult-only spa is filled with saunas, steam room, jacuzzi and loungers. Make sure you get the ultimate experience and visit the hotel’s second spa surrounded by beautiful views of the nearby mountains. And when you’re feeling suitably relaxed, hit the five-lane bowling alley for some evening entertainment.

If you want to explore Slovenia a little more, you can do so in various ways. In the winter you can hit the ski slopes of Vogel, just 20 minutes away via the hotel transfer service. Vogel is great for both beginners and intermediates. And in the summer you can enjoy a relaxing walk by Slovenia’s largest lake, or kayak and cycle if you’re feeling sporty. And if there’s time left you can even try your luck at golf in the mountains!

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
