Full description
Begin your half-day tour in the morning with a pickup from your centrally located Ljubljana hotel. Then, sitting comfortably in an air-conditioned minivan, depart for the beautiful Lake Bled, nestled amid the Julian Alps on the edge of Triglav National Park. During the drive, gaze out at rural Slovenia and listen to your guide’s commentary about the glacier-formed lake. On arrival, you can spend a few moments drinking in views of the picturesque lake, backed by towering mountains, and the fairy-tale steeple of the Church of the Assumption of Mary on Bled Island, there is a tiny rock islet in the center of the lake. Climb aboard a two-oared wooden boat and relax during the short boat ride to the island. Here, you will have around 30 minutes to explore, perhaps visiting the church or sampling potica, a traditional Slovenian cake, at the cafe.  Next, you will travel to Bled Castle, a medieval stronghold perched atop a sheer cliff overlooking the water. Listen to a brief introduction of the castle’s history from your guide, and then make the most of free time to visit the museum and absorb the bird’s-eye views of Lake Bled. The tour will finish with some time spent at the stunning lakeside. Perhaps enjoy a stroll along the lake, snap photos of the swan, or recharge with a kremšnita (vanilla cream cake) and coffee. You will then be dropped off back at your hotel in Ljubljana.

Nina was a very knowledgeable and fun guide! The tour left enough time for us to explore the island, castle and promenade by ourselves, perfect foto ops and nice recommendations for food. We were so lucky to go between Christmas and New Year's, so we caught some Christmas Markets and special events as well. Can wholeheartedly recommend!

This half day excursion provided excellent value for money. It included all the highlights of Lake Bled but was conducted at a well judged pace so that it never felt rushed. Our guide was outstanding. His local knowledge, delivered in a lively and interesting manner, was excellent and he was able to answer any questions posed by the group ensuring that everyone felt included. A well organised and very enjoyable trip to a stunning location.
