Steam Train experience
100% steam power day.
All aboard a vintage steam train for a great family day out!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go back in time and enjoy a nostalgic trip in an original working steam train and authentic period carriages powering through picturesque scenery?
Here is your chance to experience the sights, smells and sounds of an original steam locomotive.
The 100 year old Bohinj railway takes you on a 2 hour journey through the Slovenian Alps, overlooking deep gorges, passing over the Solkan bridge, the largest stone arch railway bridge in the world, following emerald coloured rivers and thundering through many tunnels, the longest one being 6.3 kms or 3,93 miles long.
Feel the rhythmical and soothing vibrations of the locomotive, enjoy watching the plumes of smoke trailing the valleys and bring back childhood memories hearing the steam train whistle echoing across the mountains. The vintage era is further brought to life with guides dressed in period costumes (conductors, guard and Franz Ferdinand and Sofia) together with an accordionist playing folklore tunes in authentic styled carriages.
The train leaves Jesenice in the North East of Slovenia, then stops at the legendary Bled lake railway station where it continues South West to its final destination in Nova Gorica. You can get on and off at various way points and also book a culinary visit to the wine region of Goriska Brda where you can enjoy lunch with regional dishes and some wine tasting in a family owned vineyard.
