Highlights

  • Relax by the Lake with a cup of coffee and a tasty Kremšnita (typical Slovenian dessert)
  • Enjoy the amazing views from Bled Castle
Full description
Start your small-group tour with a pick-up from your central Ljubljana hotel, and depart for Lake Bled in Slovenia’s Julian Alps, in an air-conditioned minivan. Enjoy a scenic 1-hour journey whilst you admire rural Slovenia and listen as your guide tells you fascinating details about the glacier-formed lake and the legends that surround Bled Island, the church-topped islet in its center.

On arrival, drink in the views of the lake and towering mountains, and gaze up at medieval Bled Castle, the fortress perched high on a cliff above the water. Then, ride a two-oared pletna to the island and enjoy free time to explore, visit the Church of the Assumption of Mary (at own expense) or sample some scrumptious potica at the island cafe.

Next, drive up to Bled Castle and delve inside the red-turreted fortress. Absorb the bird's-eye views of the lakes from the walls and visit the museum to chart the castle’s story from its roots in the 11th-century. Return to the lakeside for free time to walk around, and if you wish, sample a local speciality, kremšnita vanilla cream cake (own expense). Then, after a break for lunch (own expense), travel onward to your next stop, Bohinj Lake. Visit Vingar Gorge, the first touristically arranged gorge in Slovenia and be amazed by the rapid river under the vertical wall, as you walk on the 1.6 km path full of wooden bridges above the water. Afterward, you can enjoy your free time by the lake. Take a swim, sunbathe or walk around the lake - it's totally your choice! Then, return to your minivan and end your tour in Ljubljana, with a drop-off at your hotel.
