From Ljubljana: Lake Bled and Bohinj Trip

1. From Ljubljana: Lake Bled and Bohinj Trip

Enjoy Bled, or the “Image of Paradise,” which has been attracting visitors with its breathtaking beauty for centuries. The calm and inviting waters of its lake spurred the tradition of making the typical ‘pletna’ boats back in the 12th century.  Optionally you can board one of these wooden beauties to reach the island, with its romantic church and mysterious wishing bell. Sightseeing in Bled continues with a visit to the impressive castle, perched on a cliff high above the lake. Step back time in its museum and enjoy the unforgettable view of the surroundings. Surrounded by alluring summits, the Bohinj Valley charms visitors with its inspiring scenery, crystal lake waters, and the harmonious coexistence of man and nature. The picturesque lakeside boasts the frescoes of the Church of St. John the Baptist. You will have time to discover the legend of Zlatorog (Goldhorn), enjoy a stunning view over Mount Triglav, and try the hearty local cuisine.

Really can’t think of a better way to explore Bled and Bohinj. The guide was awesome, full of knowledge about Slovenija’s history and a bunch of fun facts! He took us to the snowy mountains of Bohinj, to see a beautiful waterfall, to a cozy little village that seemed to come out straight of a Christmas postcard and to a tasty restaurant with all of Slovenija’s classics. Then we went to Lake Bled and the castle and he stopped at all the right spots to get the best views. Just wonderful overall and definitely worth it!

What an incredible experience, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!! Our guide Vasco (I think that was his name) was amazing! He gave us lots of information about Slovenian history and culture on the drive there which was great. We had amazing weather and both Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj were absolutely stunning despite the cold. The stop offs to try cream cake (delicious), visit the castle and the boat ride to the island were very worthwhile. What an amazing experience!

Our guide, Vasko, was very informative. He went out of his way to make our tour a great experience. We were picked up at our hotel, which was very convenient.

Amazing trip, would recommend this activity to everyone looking to explore Lake Bled and the surrounding area :)

Very good experience in winter, wonderful landscapes and discovery of local culture !
