New Year in Austria, Slovenia and CastelBrando

A truly spectacular New Year Adventure

Celebrate New Year in wonderful Salzburg, exciting Slovenia and stay in a centuries old castle

Spend New Year’s Eve exploring the Austrian Lakes District followed by dinner celebrations in a 1,200-year-old restaurant in sensational Salzburg, and New Year’s Day on an exhilarating horse and carriage ride through the mountains. Relax over 3 nights beside gorgeous Lake Bled, follow the shoreline of beautiful Lake Bohinj, catch a cable car up into the snow clad Slovenian Alps, glide on a historic boat across the lake to a Church on an Island, and visit elegant Ljubljana. In Postojna take a mesmerising train ride deep into to a stupendous labyrinth of massive caves and later wander through a cliff clinging fortress. As a finale stay in a massive baronial Castle in the foothills of the Italian Dolomites. First-class, fabulous food, festivities, fun… what a way to celebrate the New Year!
