  • From Ljubljana: Day Trip to Bled and Vintgar Gorge

    1. From Ljubljana: Day Trip to Bled and Vintgar Gorge

    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.

    The trip was phenomenal! We enjoyed every bit of it! Our helpful guide, Urban, showed us around with unwavering patience and kindness and enthusiasm. What we liked the most about the trip was that even though it was a pre-planned trip, our guide gave us several options! This felt like a tailor-made trip and allowed us to explore the Slovenian culture and hear all about it from a Lake Bled local! We highly recommend this experience! We had a fantastic day!

Amazing !!!!!! 5 stars ++++ We first went to the Vintgar Gorge for about 1h30, that was a beautiful landscape. Then we climbed our way up to the Bled castle with an astouding point of view (and great Bled cake). Then we had the choice between a boat trip to the Bled island or a hike around the lakeshore (we did the last one and it was gorgeous). Then we drove to Bohinj lake where we could go for a swim, it was so peaceful! And then we went to a cute médiéval village named Skojka Gora and our guide told us the whole story about it. Our guide was very useful and told us many many stories about the country. Thanks a lot again!!! Would definitely recommand +++

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.

Super day seeing Lake Bled and other sights.highly recommend this trip. We could never have beaten the crowds and made the most of our time without such an experienced guide. The trip was personalised and suited the needs and interests of the guests on board. A brilliant experience.
