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.
