7. Ljubljana: Scenic Bled and Škofja Loka Self-Driving Tour
Discover scenic lakes and historic towns as you drive, read stories provided on the tour app, and stop for photos whenever you like. Begin your drive in Ljubljana, and make your way to Škofja Loka at your own pace.
Begin your journey with a short drive from Ljubljana to discover the famous Apline jewel of Lake Bled. Choose your itinerary from the curated list of options, and stop to hike along the lake’s scenic routes, explore Bled Castle perched on the top of a cliff above Lake Bled, or enjoy a relaxing boat ride on a pletna — a traditional flat-bottom boat.
Continue on to one of the most stunning natural canyons, the impressive Vintgar Gorge, where you can walk along wooden platforms and bridges above the rushing Radovna River, ending your walk by the 13-meter high Sum waterfall.
Next is Lake Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest glacial lake, in the Triglav National Park. Swim, canoe, and walk in the verdant park, or simply relax next to the calm waters.
Head back to Ljubljana, and on your way stop in Škofja Loka, one of the oldest and best-preserved Slovenian towns still standing today. Walk through the charming town center and marvel at the castle and monastery perched high above you. Round up your trip by driving back to Slovenia’s capital city at your own pace.
