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.

Booked with Slovenia Explorer and we got an awesome guide-driver, Vesna — she is the perfect guide who gives you history and culture with anecdotes to keep you interested. So much so, you know the island and castle before you explore on your own.
