From Ljubljana: Lake Bled and Bohinj Trip

From Ljubljana: Lake Bled and Bohinj Trip

Enjoy Bled, or the “Image of Paradise,” which has been attracting visitors with its breathtaking beauty for centuries. The calm and inviting waters of its lake spurred the tradition of making the typical ‘pletna’ boats back in the 12th century.  Optionally you can board one of these wooden beauties to reach the island, with its romantic church and mysterious wishing bell. Sightseeing in Bled continues with a visit to the impressive castle, perched on a cliff high above the lake. Step back time in its museum and enjoy the unforgettable view of the surroundings. Surrounded by alluring summits, the Bohinj Valley charms visitors with its inspiring scenery, crystal lake waters, and the harmonious coexistence of man and nature. The picturesque lakeside boasts the frescoes of the Church of St. John the Baptist. You will have time to discover the legend of Zlatorog (Goldhorn), enjoy a stunning view over Mount Triglav, and try the hearty local cuisine.  Take your bathing suit with you in the summer and take a late dip in the lake.

We had an amazing day. Our tour guide Matt was great, provided lots of information and history of the area and Slovenia. The bus was comfortable and the other tourists were great too. Lake Bled was incredible, we swam and ate ice cream, with Bled cake too. Lake Bohinj was also spectacular we swam again and had a quick lunch before heading to Vintnar gorge. That too was incredible what a beautiful place. Thank you, we had a trip of a lifetime.

This was a trip I will never forget. Getting to explore the mountains and lakes of Slovenia, our guide was very knowledgable and good. This is perfect for anyone wanting to explore nature and get out of the city for a day. Slovenia is a beautiful country and having the opportunity to be driven into the rural mountains was an amazing experience. Everything was communicated clearly so you knew where to meet the guide!

Had a great day. Tour was sensational and there was a driver and a guide, so lots of commentary. We did another tour with To Do In Slovenia. They are a professional company who does the very best for their customers. Would highly recommend booking tours with them.

Keenen was excellent, great knowledge and a great host. 10/10. Hvala from Greece

super guide, well informed, excellent English and very friendly
