  • Spend 3 days in Lake Bled area and discover the best things to see
  • Enjoy a different activity planned each day, such as hiking and cycling
  • Visit the best attractions of Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj
  • Explore some lesser known yet beautiful areas and towns around Bled 

This active holiday includes the main sights of the area while ample opportunities are given to explore the less visited spots away from the main tourist trail. For the main part you will be kept busy with outdoor activities, either hiking or cycling and optionally paddle boarding on the lake - all fantastic ways to experience the place without being in a rush to do so.

Staying at Lake Bled will give you the chance to spend some time on your own and create your private memories, while we will take care of the more active activities, such as cycling around the lake and to the town of Radovljica, hiking in Vintgar and Mostnica Gorge, Savica Waterfall, Mount Vogel, Ojstrica viewpoint and many more. You can opt to try out paddle boarding on Lake Bled, which makes a brilliant trip to the island in the middle.

If your holiday time is limited, this city break works wonders as it presents you with ample active time in nature and some leisure time in one of the best spots in Slovenia.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a single traveller, how can I book?

Don’t worry, just drop us a line in our inbox. We will do our best to try and find you some company, so if you are flexible in your travel dates, let us know as well. Do you want a private trip? No problem, we got you covered too.

Why is the accommodation not specified?

We are always looking for the perfect fit for you. We use a few different accommodation providers that fit our standards but they are subjected to availability, especially in the high season. We can also adjust the holiday, keeping in mind your preferences and budget and can always find a more suitable solution for your taste.

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).
