What to Expect
Your half-day tour of Lake Bled begins with a pick-up from your Ljubljana hotel. Travel from Ljubljana to Lake Bled in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Upon arrival at Lake Bled, take some time to admire the lake’s peaceful, emerald waters. Then, after a ride in a traditional, wooden boat, explore Bled Island as you wish. Tour the photogenic Our Lady of the Lake Church or enjoy a snack in the cafe. Next, journey back to shore for a tour of Bled Castle. The castle was built precariously on the edge of the lake during medieval times and offers stunning panoramic views of Lake Bled from atop the cliff. Reconvene with your guide back at the lake where you enjoy some free time for photographs or a quick dip in the lake. Finally, hop into the van for the trip back to your Ljubljana hotel.

This was a fantastic half day tour from Ljublana to Lake Bled and Bled castle. It was easy to book (I was given a list of options at my hotel reception and they rang up and booked for me). I was picked up from the hotel reception by Ivanna in the minbus and joined the tour.

A visit to Lake Bled offers most beautiful and stunning views. One cannot take eyes off from the beauty of castle and church in the middle of lake surrounded by crystal clear water. A boat ride to it is equally beautiful. Breathtaking views from all sides add on to the beauty
