Full description

You will start your small-group tour with a pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel and depart for Lake Bled in an air-conditioned minivan. 

On the 1-hour journey, you can admire rural Slovenia, the glacier-formed lake, and the legends surrounding Bled Island, the church-topped islet in its center.

On arrival, you can 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, you will 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 island cafe. 

Next, you will be driven up to Bled Castle and can delve inside the red-turreted fortress. Absorb the bird's-eye views of the lakes from the walls and visit the museum to chart the castle's story from its roots in the 11th century.

You will then return to the lakeside for free time to walk around. If you wish, sample a local specialty, kremšnita vanilla cream cake. Then, after a break for lunch, travel onward to your next stop, Predjama Castle. You can marvel at this remarkable cliffside castle and hear how it was extended through the centuries after being built in 1202. Then, you can choose to explore its stairways and chambers on your own or with a guide. 

Lastly, you will continue near Postojna Cave, Slovenia's most-visited tourist attraction. Ride the mini-train into the depths of this underground network and then follow a guide through its eerie caverns.

Admire the bizarre stalactites, stalagmites, and rock formations. Hear the tales about the cave's creation and the rare amphibians that live in its underground rivers — the blind salamanders known as 'human fish.' 

Then, return to the minivan and end your tour in Ljubljana with a drop-off at your hotel.

We absolutely loved this tour!! Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and being a small group of only 4 of us meant there was flexibility for people to do their own thing. The caves and castle are absolutely incredible and worth paying the extra money to visit (entry fee not included in tour). Then we set off to Bled and caught a pretna boat to the island, again ticket not included but worth the experience. Bled castle was interesting but very different to Predjama!

What a great experience!! Tine (Martin) was an amazing guide - he drove through the places with such ease, calm and awesome commentary. He made sure all our questions are answered and we have the best experience. The day was well planned. While the entry tickets are not included and have to be bought directly at the ticket office, there was enough time to explore all the four locations. Tip - though there is nothing major to explore in the Bled castle, the view from is absolutely breathtaking especially at sunset! The transport was very comfortable as well. Highly recommend this trip!

Highly recommended tour!! Prepared and attentive guide. Punctuality and professionalism. In just one day it is possible to see many sights. It is the optimal solution for those like us who have little time available. The navigation on Lake Bled with the pletna is suggestive, the caves of Postumia are interesting and the castle of Predjama is unusual!
