Full description
Following pick-up from Ljubljana, travel in comfort to the beautiful resort town of Bled in the foothills of the Julian Alps

Journey up to the castle perched on the top of a steep cliff above the glacial Lake Bled. Get spectacular views of the lake and its tiny island from the terraces, and then board a traditional pletna boat and sail across to the only true island in Slovenia.

Alternatively, visit Vintgar Gorge and walk the wooden paths to marvel as the River Radovna runs through the canyon to end at the amazing Šum Waterfall. Stop for lunch in a typical Alpine restaurant before going to the glacial lake at Bohinj in Triglav National Park.

Cool down with a swim or explore the lake on foot, or by canoe if you prefer. End with a visit to the well-preserved town of Skofja Loka. Walk around the medieval town center, overlooked by an historic castle and monastery.

Wonderful tour. Our guide was Val and she was very knowledgeable about every facet of the area and answered all our questions. Her English was great and she had a wonderful sense of humor. The pace of the tour was perfect and we really felt we gained an understanding of the area. Like this tour so much that we booked another through the same company for the next day.

Amazing experience! All the stops on this tour are incredible. I like the fact that it mixes the must see sights with some hidden gems! Our tour guide Val was brilliant, she made everything really easy and relaxed and has so much knowledge about Slovenia. I can't recommend highly enough!

Overall great

Excellent guide, for the price of the tour we we're amazed at how many amazing sights we saw. The group was small which was nice. The guide adapted the schedule for the day in the morning after looking at weather forecasts and such. All together we could not be more satisfied with our experience.
