From Ljubljana: Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj Day Trip

1. From Ljubljana: Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj Day Trip

An ‘Image of Paradise’, as it is often described, Bled 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. Guides will roll 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 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. To experience a bit of trekking, you'll end the day with an enjoyable 20-minute hike to the beautiful Savica Waterfall, thundering from a high rocky cliff, and enjoy a rewarding view of the Lake.

From Ljubljana: Trip to Lake Bled and Bled Castle

3. From Ljubljana: Trip to Lake Bled and Bled Castle

Lake Bled is often mentioned as the pearl of the Slovenian Alpine region due to its emerald-green waters, picture-perfect postcard church on the island, medieval castle on the rocky cliff, and some of the highest peaks of the Slovenian Alps as the background. Take a short walk along the lakeshore as the beauty of the surrounding mountains reflects off the lake surface. No matter the season, you'll enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the lake and the fresh mountain air.  Perched atop a steep cliff more than 100 meters above the lake, Bled Castle is the iconic image of a medieval fortress, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views. The castle houses a unique treasure - a reconstruction of Gutenberg's wooden printing press, on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using hand-made paper. Take the Pletna boat, a traditional boat known only to this region, to the tiny tear-shaped island on the lake. Upon returning from the island, stop at the local patisserie and taste Bled’s famous cream cake, kremšnita. In the last 60 years they have sold as many as 12 million of these cakes - they are definitely a can't-miss and a perfect way to top off your day.

What people are saying about Central Slovenia

Amazing !!!!!! 5 stars ++++ We first went to the Vintgar Gorge for about 1h30, that was a beautiful landscape. Then we climbed our way up to the Bled castle with an astouding point of view (and great Bled cake). Then we had the choice between a boat trip to the Bled island or a hike around the lakeshore (we did the last one and it was gorgeous). Then we drove to Bohinj lake where we could go for a swim, it was so peaceful! And then we went to a cute médiéval village named Skojka Gora and our guide told us the whole story about it. Our guide was very useful and told us many many stories about the country. Thanks a lot again!!! Would definitely recommand +++

Highly recommended. Lakes Bled and Bohinj are both spectacular and well worth a visit. We were lucky enough to have great weather for our trip but it would have been lovely even in the rain. Our guide, Primoz, was fantastic - incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. He personalized the tour to our interests and made sure that we had a great time.

Primoz was an excellent guide. You could see his knowledge and passion about Slovenia. He took us to the waterfall even if it wasnt on the plan for the day, just because i asked him to!! I really appreciate that!

Great trip, nice guide! We liked the tour and there were only three people in the car, thus we indeed liked it. Note that entrance fee is not included and it might be a bit expensive all in all over 120 euro.

Great experience! The guide was very kind and full of knowledge about the history of Slovenia and Bled.
