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.

0ur trip was was wonderful. We really enjoyed everything and especially Nina the driver and tour guide. She was a fabulous driver and had so much knowledge about the area and the history of Slovenia. We had an unforgettable trip with Nini and would love to come back in the future! Slovenia is a beautiful country ad Nini gave us enough free time to really relax as well as gain so muck knowledge about the area.

She was very attentive and made sure everyone im the group felt comfortable with the activities.
