Description

Be enchanted by the fairy-tale sights of Lake Bled and beyond on this small-group, half-day tour from Ljubljana. Travel by air-conditioned minivan to the beautiful Alpine lake in rural Slovenia. Ride a traditional ‘pletna’ boat to Bled Island, where you can visit the church or try local sweet treats at the cafe. Then, explore Bled Castle, perched high above the Lake Bled’s tranquil waters, before enjoying free time at the lakeside. Numbers are limited to eight people, ensuring personalised attention from the guide.

Begin your half-day tour in the morning with a pick-up from your centrally located Ljubljana hotel. Then, sitting comfortably in an air-conditioned minivan, depart for the beautiful Lake Bled, nestled amid the Julian Alps on the edge of Triglav National Park. During the approx. 1-hour drive, gaze out at rural Slovenia and listen to your guide’s commentary about the glacier-formed lake.

On arrival, spend a few moments drinking in views of the picturesque lake, backed by towering mountains, and the fairy-tale steeple of the Church of the Assumption of Mary on Bled Island, a tiny rock islet in the centre of the lake.

Then, climb on board a two-oared wooden pletna and relax during a 15-minute boat ride to the island. With roughly 30 minutes of free time to explore, perhaps visit the church (own expense) or sample potica, a traditional Slovenian cake, at the cafe (own expense).

Next, join back up with your guide and travel to Bled Castle, a mediaeval stronghold perched atop a sheer cliff overlooking the water. Listen to a brief introduction of the castle’s history from your guide, and then make the most of free time to visit the museum and absorb the bird’s-eye views of Lake Bled.

When the time comes, return to your minivan and drive down to the lakeside. With time here spent at your leisure, perhaps enjoy a stroll along the lake, snap photos of the swans, or recharge with a kremsnita(vanilla cream cake) and coffee (own expense).

Your half-day tour then concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel in Ljubljana.
