I know you have a ton of dedicated “escapees”, but I just want you to know that not a week goes by that I don’t think of my trip with Escape To Shape. It was a game changer for me. Your business has the ability to open doors, eyes and experiences to people and change them. What a gift you have. Thank you!!!

Nourishment

We are going to let you in on a secret? The food in Slovenia is fabulous! Sharing a border with Italy, there are many similarities — the freshest of ingredients, simple, healthy, and delicious. Oh! And let’s not forget the wines! Local Slovenian wines are beginning to be recognized as some of the best in the world, winning prestigious international awards. Find out for yourself what all the buzz is about. Gluten-free or vegan? We’ve got you covered.

Home

From city sleek to a fairy-tale castle in the middle of a river, the gem of accommodations in Slovenia and the only Relais & Chateaux property in the country. Experience the best of both worlds while exploring this diverse and beautiful country.

Unique

Slovenia has a bit of something for everyone — breathtaking natural beauty, beautiful charming medieval cities and architecture, fresh and delicious food, flavorful wines — and is on the cusp of being discovered. Experience the best of this beautiful country before the onset of tourism really sets in!

Tour Details

Join Escape to Shape as we explore Europe’s hidden secret and most naturally diverse, culturally rich country – Slovenia. This Escape is ideal for trend-setters, those who like to break the mold and experience off-the-beaten-path, emerging destinations. A perfect combination of European history, charm and elegance along with breathtaking natural beauty give this Escape its unique flair. Days will be spent exploring the culture and cuisine as we hike, bike, kayak and raft through the natural landscapes of this vivid country, complimented by yoga classes along the way!

As distances within Slovenia are short, Ljubljana is a perfect starting point and base for our first four nights as we explore Slovenia’s diverse history and natural beauty. Highlights include visiting the Postojna Cave — a fantastic web of underground tunnels, passages, galleries and halls; learning about the grand Lipizzan horses at Lipica Stud farm; wandering Ljubljana and hiking the surrounding areas (Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj). From there we move on to deeper explore the culture and cuisine, with biking and wine tasting, rafting, kayaking or hiking in Carniola plus much, much more.

Slovenia is just a 2-hours drive from the Venice airport. By plane it takes only 1 hour from Rome, Munich, Frankfurt, Dubrovnik and only 2 hours from Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam.

We are happy to assist with flights and any travel extensions you may want to add to your trip.

Accommodations

While in the elegant and vibrant riverside city of Lubjiani, guests will stay at the intimate Hotel Cubo. Housed in an impressive 1930’s protected Art Deco building, Hotel Cubo opened following a full renovation and conversion of the interior, transforming it into a luxury hotel. While the exterior has been preserved, the interior is modern, sleek. contemporary and stylish, combined with a genuinely warm staff and top-notch service. Conveniently located on the edge of the old town, there is simply no better place to stay in the Slovenian capital.

With 26 spacious modern rooms — complete with luxurious linens and designer touches — please note that we will not have exclusive use of Hotel Cubo, rather, we will be sharing it with other discerning guests.

After four nights in Lubjiani we will then move on to Hotel Grad Otočec, a Relais and Chateaux property often referred to as Otočec castle. This unique castle is on an island right in the middle of the Krka River, offering a magical setting that feels as if it emerged out of a fairy tale. Hotel Grad Otočec is a haven of peace where the spirit of the past blends marvelously with the rhythm of modern life, offering an atmosphere that has retained its character and authenticity. Everything here, right down to the attentive staff keen to fulfill every wish, contributes to well-being and hence is the perfect backdrop for Escape to Shape while in Slovenia. From here we can explore the areas of Carniola and Bizeljsko — two areas of gorgeous natural beauty.

With 26 spacious rooms, please note that we will not have exclusive use of Hotel Grad Otočec, rather, we will be sharing it with other discerning guests.

Lorenzo Toffano

Certified Yoga Teacher; Degree in Sports Science

Lorenzo played basketball for many year and first discovered yoga in 2005 through a friend of his mother’s — Hatha yoga, very mellow, beautiful classes. Soon after, he moved to Ibiza, where he met acclaimed yoga teacher Meghan Currie (Alo yoga, Gaia), who introduced him to her whimsical, powerful, playful Vinyasa practice. He considered Meghan a primary influence in his teaching and practice and has been fortunate enough to train with her in Milan, Tulum and Vancouver. Lorenzo spends much time in Tulum, where he has further deepened his yoga practice and knowledge, taking classes daily and participating in many yoga retreats of very accomplished teachers, such as Elena Brower, Baron Baptiste, Shiva Rea, Jessica Bellofatto, and Michael Gannon. He has over 500 hours of yoga teacher training certification in Ashtanga and Vinyasa, and teaches in Tulum, Mexico as well as in Italy, and when we are lucky enough, on Escape To Shape. Lorenzo loves nature, yoga, fly fishing, kite surfing, snowboarding, traveling, and meeting new people. We are honored to have him teaching with us in Tuscany!
