Description

There is no doubt, you can definitely find a lot of beautiful spots in Slovenia to spend your holidays at. However, the iconic Lake Bled is definitely a spot you should not miss when visiting. Not only the breathtaking scenery and numerous fun activities for families, Lake Bled also provides a good starting point location to explore other beautiful nearby parts of Slovenia .

This 3 day holiday is a perfect package for you and your family to visit all the must-see attractions of Lake Bled, and also to actively explore sights of gorgeous Lake Bohinj and Ljubljana’s old town.

As a perfect start to your holiday you will visit all the important sights of Lake Bled - the magnificent Bled Castle that sits upon a hill overlooking the lake, giving you spectacular views of the lake and surroundings and a ride with a traditional Slovenian boat to the unique church on the lake’s island. The next day is reserved for beautiful Lake Bohinj, views of the lake and surrounding mountains from Vogel mountain, the gorgeous Savica Waterfall and the fairy-tale scenery of Mostnica Gorge. When in Slovenia, you definitely need to visit its charming capital, so our last day is reserved for the sights of Ljubljana, with a walk through the old town, a boat ride on the river that runs through the middle of the city and a short trip back in history by visiting the medieval Ljubljana Castle.

If you choose to be active and explore further, you also have the option of taking a bike ride around Lake Bled and through the old villages near Lake Bohinj. Besides the mentioned activities, we will provide you with transfers between the locations and a guide to accompany you and your family every step of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the pickup and which transfers are included?

The included pickup and drop-off at the end of the holiday in the price published on our website is in Bled. For any changes, please notify us upon booking. The included transfers are all the transfers between places and/or activities specified in the itinerary.

Where do I eat when the food is not included?

Both our back office team and our guides know where to go. We can give you recommendations or even pre-book some places for you. You can be adventurous and find places on your own. Either way, let us know if you would like any sort of help.

What should I wear?

It is important to dress for the season. Slovenia has all 4 seasons, so please check the weather forecast before the day trip regarding temperatures and rainfall. When you are close to the Alps, the weather can change fairly quickly, so your best bet is to always bring an extra layer. We recommend shoes you will be comfortable in.

I have food restrictions. Are there any restaurants for me?

It really depends on the level of your restriction. Vegetarian options are fairly easy to find in Slovenia, but vegan dishes, on the other hand, are extremely hard to come by in rural areas of the country and in smaller towns. Please note that the places where we stop for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind.

Will I have some time to myself?

Yes! Our holidays are designed to give you some free time every day to relax and spend it the way you want to. It is your holiday after all! For any advice and suggestions you can always turn to your tour leader or our back office, who will be more than happy to help you out.

What is the tourist tax that is not included in the price?

A tourist and promotion tax is a fee that every visitor has to pay for each overnight stay all over Slovenia. It consists of two parts: each municipality charges a tourist tax fee, which goes towards financing and maintenance of tourist facilities in the area, and the Slovenian Tourist Board charges a promotion tax, which is used to promote Slovenia. Depending on the municipality, the tax rates vary - from 1.5€ in some locations to 3.13€ in Ljubljana or Bled (per person, per night).
