Vipava is a small town in western Slovenia. It is approximately 80 kilometers west from the capital Ljubljana.
The valley of Vipava river is known for its natural beauty and wine production. There are many hiking possibilities in the near by hills and it is a home to some of the most beautiful caves (e.g. Postojna, Skocjan) in the region.

Traveling to Slovenia:
Slovenia has one airport near the capitol Ljubljana LJU It is connected to most major cities over Europe.
There are also two Italian airports that we recommend:
Trieste (TRS) which is actually closer to Vipava than Slovenian one and is bigger and has more connections.
Venice airport Marco Polo: offers low fare easy jet flights in addition to many standard airline connections
We recommend that you use GoOpti for transfer from your chosen airport.
GoOpti company offers shared and private rides connecting all the airports to the address of your choosing. This service can only be booked through their website. We urge you to book it as soon as possible, since it will be cheaper this way.
