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.

We visited a number of countries and Slovenia was by far our favourite: however, nothing compared to the beauty and magic of Lake Bled. This tour was a good pace and the tour guide was very informative and helpful. We would definitely recommend the tour to anyone wanting to go
