Spending a family holiday in Slovenia’s beautiful Alpine region is always a great idea. So what could be better than choosing the country’s iconic and idyllic Lake Bled as your destination? Adding a list of super fun and adventure-packed activities to your stay, of course!

Bled is undeniably the most famous Slovenian landmark. It’s steeped with legends and history, has the oldest castle in the country, a pretty church in the middle of a stunning glacial lake, and is situated in one of the most picturesque environments on the planet. But what many visitors don’t know about Bled is that it offers a bunch of possibilities for an active holiday the whole family can enjoy. This 4-day holiday will allow you to see all the main attractions and give you the option of choosing numerous extra activities suitable for all ages.

In addition to hitching a ride to the island with a traditional pletna boat and visiting the medieval castle on a cliff for some spectacular views, you'll be able to choose between various destinations in and around Bled, as well as indulge in fun activities this Alpine gem has in store. Each day you’ll be able to pick a different adventure tailored to your needs. From cycling around the lake and countryside lanes or horse-riding in the forest, to easy hiking in nearby Vintgar Gorge or paddle boarding on Lake Bled itself. For a dose of adrenaline, there’s ziplining above a scenic river valley and an adventure park overlooking Lake Bled. Whatever your preference, we’ve got you covered. We’ll be there to transfer you to your chosen location and guide you through all these awesome activities. Families can also opt for a slower pace and explore on their own or relax in the spa. Parents can enjoy some alone time by going wine tasting and sharing a romantic dinner. We’ll provide a guide, that you can consider your holiday nanny that will keep your children entertained for hours with some fantastic lakeside activities.

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 Ljubljana or Ljubljana airport. 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.

How difficult are the activities?

All the activities are appropriate for beginners. However, some activities require children to be above a certain age or height. Limitations: Canyoning: height more than 150 cm Kayaking: height more than 130 cm Zipline: minimum 6 years White water rafting: minimum 6 years

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. If you are visiting caves, please remember that the caves are cold in the summer, as the cave temperature is constant throughout the year.

Some of our family members have food restrictions. Are there any restaurants for them?

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 off for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind and let us know upon booking.

How does the “choice of activity” work?

As there is so much to do in Slovenia, we wanted to give you the option of choosing exactly how you would like to spend your time here. Which is why we have compiled a list of popular activities in the areas of your visit and categorized them as extras. Therefore, the choice of which and how many you would like to experience is entirely up to you. You can book all of your chosen extras in advance. Your guide will confirm the bookings with you on the tour and make sure you are fully informed.

Will we have some time to ourselves?

As much as you’d like! We are well aware that some people love to have a packed holiday, full of activities, while others prefer some more alone and quiet time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! Please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!

Who will be our tour manager?

Our family holiday guides are professional and experienced guides who are also very good with children. They will look after the whole family, help you out with the itinerary, your activities and will also be a wealth of local information. If you want to join activities such as wine tasting, your guide will be happy to keep your children entertained and busy.

What sort of accommodation do you arrange?

The price published on our website includes 3* accommodation with the whole family staying in one room or suite. If you prefer to have separate rooms, let us know upon booking. The accommodation is placed centrally in areas that have restaurants, shops, cafes and other entertainment, so you are not stranded somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

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).
