A short holiday break at Lake Bled is a fantastic value for money, as it includes all the best attractions of Bled - from the romantic island in the middle of the lake to the castle with spectacular views, Lake Bohinj in the Triglav National Park, as well as Ljubljana, the beautiful capital, which is not to be missed.
Packed with sightseeing opportunities, natural beauty and rich culture while still having plenty of free time will give you the chance to enjoy a relaxing holiday and really experience the magic of Lake Bled and Slovenia’s gorgeous countryside.
Ljubljana, Europe’s loveliest green capital, is sure to enchant you as you stroll down its streets. Steeped in culture and architectural splendour, Ljubljana’s charming squares, colourful markets, the majestic castle on the hill and lively riverside cafes will make you want to move there permanently.
Your holiday at Lake Bled will start with all the most popular attractions - we will visit the magnificent Bled Castle with its spectacular views and enjoy a traditional boat ride to the island in the middle of the lake. You will be able to tick off the famous Bled cream cake and enjoy the bustling resort town of Bled. You can spend the rest of your day in and around Bled or you can opt to head to Vintgar Gorge* for a bit of hiking.
Bohinj Lake is Bled’s slightly less famous neighbour but unjustly so. Surrounded by the peaks of the Julian Alps, it is a true gem in the heart of Triglav National Park. In order to get the best views around, we will take a cable car to the Vogel Mountain, rising above the lake and offering some of the best views in the country. If you are up for a short hike, Savica Waterfall**, nested at the head of Bohinj Valley, is another must see.
A visit to Slovenia must include a stop in its charming capital, Ljubljana. Only a short drive from Bled, this lovely city will welcome you with its cheerful atmosphere and beautiful architecture. The walking tour will take you to all the main attractions in the old town and for a change of perspective, we will take you on a leisurely boat ride on Ljubljanica River. Making sure you get to see it all, we will head up to one of the best vantage points, the Ljubljana Castle and visit all the different exhibitions it has to offer.
Why not spend a few more days in Slovenia? Extend your holidays with a pre- or post-holiday extension. Accommodation, sightseeing and activities can be arranged. Add as many extra days to your holiday as you wish.
