Easyjet now flies London Gatwick to Ljubljana!
Great news for people connecting or flying from the UK to Green Slovenia.. Easyjet has started another new route from Gatwick to Ljubljana airport, which is just a 50 min drive to Lipizzaner Lodge and our second closest international airport! With Easyjet flights.. the earlier you book then the better price you get.. in November for example, 2 couples from South Wales got terrific prices for their 4 day June getaway to the Lodge. Here is a link to the new Gatwick route at EASYJET
And more exciting news.. British Airways have started a summer service to Pula in Istria, just 1hr 40 mins from the Lodge!
We have been telling anyone who will listen all about Green Slovenia as Europe's outstanding new holiday destination, but people only really truly believe us when they actually arrive here, seeing it with their own eyes and feeling the incredible beauty of the place. Well, we've also been saying for years that the cute little Ljubljana airport is absolutely perfect for some expansion to accommodate the number of people who are finally discovering Slovenia.
Really.. do not worry that Slovenia will fill up with tourists, it won't happen..
Slovenia is 13 times bigger than greater London and whilst the tourist busses will always pack the very few "known" tourist destinations in July and August, there is soooooooooooo much else to explore here.. just check out our SECRET PLACES TO VISIT page or our DAYTRIPS section if you don't believe it)! Look at another one of the many amazing secret waterfalls we found for the first time this year, (above).
The approach to Ljubljana airport over the Alps and then descending into a green corridor surrounded by mountains is one of the prettiest landings you can have in Europe.
Additionally the runway is huge, there is plenty of space everywhere and the terminal building is modern and welcoming, hosting our absolutely favourite airport cafe anywhere.. Oh yes, hidden away at the side of the building on the way to the outdoor car park you go up some stairs or in the lift up to the terrace where a wonderful little cafe awaits you with a view to the planes and runway in front of you and backed up by towering mountains behind you. What a great place to slurp an ice cream or sip a coffee!
The car rental firms are friendly, generally excellent value and close by opposite the terminal.. (but we are still mildly irritated that some of them are still overcharging you each day for the vignette motorway toll sticker that is stuck on the window in any case).
So all in all, we are absolutely delighted that you can now fly directly to Ljubljana from 4 different London airports, (Stanstead, Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton). We have lots more info about flying to Lipizzaner Lodge.. there are lots and lots of choices.. on our FLIGHTS page, please check it out or just ask us to help you out with routes and ideas for your next adventure to Green Slovenia!
