Full description
Start your small-group tour with a pick up from your central Ljubljana hotel, and depart for Lake Bled in Slovenia’s Julian Alps in an air-conditioned minivan. Admire rural Slovenia and listen as your guide describes the glacier-formed lake and the legends that surround Bled Island, as well as the church-topped islet in its center. Drink in the views of the lake and towering mountains, and gaze up at medieval Bled Castle, the fortress perched high on a cliff above the water. Then, ride a two-oared pletna to the island and enjoy free time to explore. Visit the Church of the Assumption of Mary or sample some scrumptious potica at the cafe. Next, drive up to Bled Castle and visit the museum to chart the castle’s story from its roots in the 11th century. Return to the lakeside for free time to walk around, and if you wish, sample a local specialty, kremšnita vanilla cream cake. After a break for lunch, visit Vintgar Gorge, and be amazed by its rapids as you walk along a 1.6 km path of wooden bridges above the water. Admire Pokljuka plateau, covered with coniferous forest and famous for its Biathlon Centre, where some of the best Slovenian athletes train in the winter time. Continue to Lake Bohinj, the largest and most beautiful Alpine lake in Slovenia.  Discover alpine villages such as Ribčev Laz and Ukanc and take a short hike to picturesque Savica waterfall. Then, return to your minivan and end your tour in Ljubljana, with a drop off at your hotel.

    The trip covered many beautiful sights and natural scenery. Our guide had answers to all our questions and told many interesting stories and facts about the places we visited. She was very attentive and made sure everyone im the group felt comfortable with the activities. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who visits Ljubljana and also wants to explore the surroundings.

    A stunning experience!

    A more than amazing experience. We were picked up on time from our hotel and started our tour. We had the pleasant surprise of a French speaking guide and we were alone in the van! A resplendent day with the lake of bled, its castle, the gorges of vintgar ... it had snowed up which gave a very special charm! Excellent value for money for a great day! Many thanks to our guide
