In September indulge your wild side and explore the world with a UNT Travel Learn trip:
Slovenia: Julian Alps and Lake Bled
September 10 — September 17
Slovenia’s historic capital city, Ljubljana, is the starting point for this journey through one of Europe’s most unspoiled and diverse landscapes. Taking in the Julian Alps and the vast underground caves of Skocjan, we meander through flower-filled meadows and along the bluegreen shores of Lake Bled. We discover cheese making and bee keeping, enjoy spectacular waterfalls and gorges, explore ancient castles and breathe Slovenia’s pristine air. A highlight of this tour is a boat trip across Lake Bohinj in the protected waters of Triglav National Park where we discover the many myths and legends that surround the mystical Bohinj Valley.
Brittany and Normandy: D-Day Landings and Mont St. Michel
September 25 — October 1
History buffs will love this tour, which includes a day-long tour of the D-Day landings site and a visit to the U.S. cemetery. We visit the scene of the largest airborne night assault in history, the center of the U.S. 82nd Pointe du Hoc where the battery has been left as it was on D-Day. A tour highlight is our overnight stay in Mont St Michel and a tour of the famous abbey. Our stay here gives us the luxury of exploring the famous islet in the peace of the evening after the crowds have gone home. Back on the mainland a stroll through Normandy’s famous ‘bocage’ a picture postcard landscape of woods, meadows and orchards enables us to sample the renowned local apple brandy and ice cream.
