Full description
An ‘Image of Paradise’, as it is often described, Bled has been attracting visitors with its breathtaking beauty for centuries. The calm and inviting waters of its lake spurred the tradition of making the typical ‘pletna’ boats back in the 12th century. Optionally you can board one of these wooden beauties to reach the island, with its romantic church and mysterious wishing bell. Sightseeing in Bled continues with a visit to the impressive castle, perched on a cliff high above the lake. Guides will roll back time in its museum, and enjoy the unforgettable view of the surroundings. Surrounded by alluring summits, the Bohinj Valley charms visitors with its inspiring scenery, crystal lake waters and the harmonious coexistence of man and nature. The picturesque lakeside boasts the frescoes of Church of St. John the Baptist. You will have time to discover the legend of Zlatorog (Goldhorn), enjoy a stunning view over Mount Triglav and try the hearty local cuisine. To experience a bit of trekking, you'll end the day with an enjoyable 20-minute hike to the beautiful Savica Waterfall, thundering from a high rocky cliff, and enjoy a rewarding view of the Lake.

Highly recommended. Lakes Bled and Bohinj are both spectacular and well worth a visit. We were lucky enough to have great weather for our trip but it would have been lovely even in the rain. Our guide, Primoz, was fantastic - incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. He personalized the tour to our interests and made sure that we had a great time.

We visited these two gorgeous lakes, a medieval castle with an incredible view and a beautiful church on the romantic island in the lake bled and Bohinj in a Triglav National Park. Though I had a slight hiccup at the beginning of the trip regarding picking up from the hotel, the local tour agency professionally resolved the issue. The tour guide, Elena, also went above and beyond to ensure that I enjoyed the rest of the trip.

A great trip at a very affordable price. An excellent, likeable and helpful guide. Professional organization, I received a phone call confirming the trip, as well as a text message with the time and place of collection. I definitely recommend this organizer. Fully professional, on time. Thanks to them, my memories of a trip to Slovenia are the best possible.
