The Basics

Lake Bled is lovely to admire from any vantage point. Wander the paved path that circles the entire lakeshore, take a traditional pletna (wooden flat-bottom boat) ride to the island in the lake’s center (or rent a boat and row yourself), or tour the medieval Bled Castle perched on the cliffs above and enjoy panoramic views from the castle terrace. For the more adventurous, take a guided rafting trip down one of Bled’s emerald rivers, rappel down cascading waterfalls on a guided canyoning tour, or rent a bike and explore the surrounding countryside. Other popular activities in summer include swimming, kayaking, fishing, and stand-up paddleboarding.

Guided tours to Lake Bled depart from cities such as Ljubljana, Piran, Koper, Zagreb (Croatia), and Trieste (Italy). Some tours include a stop at Postojna Caves.

Magical Experience
Sanda was very friendly and welcoming. Lake Bled and Postojna Cave were truly breathtaking and experiences that I will always cherish and remember. Be sure to take a boat ride to the island and try Bled Cream Cake. Both are a must!

Dino is an awesome tour guide through and through, in regards to all things both Croatia and Slovenia! It was a nice day going through part of a very clean and green country. Lake Bled is simply stunning. Happy I did a day trip tour to Slovenia from Zagreb and even happier that Dino was our leader!

Private Tour: Ljubljana and Lake Bled Day Trip from Zagreb
Great tour! We spent a few hours at Lake Bled, which gave us time to enjoy a boat ride to the island and back. Ella recommended the Cream Cake after that and she was right! Then to Ljubljana, a quaint city. Really liked the main square, though a popup rain shower (that never showed up on weather app) shortened our time in town. Ella shared so much great info about the region and our driver (can’t spell his name) was great too. We highly recommend this trip.

Slovenia in One Day: Small-Group Day Trip to Lake Bled, Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle from Ljubljana
Sanda was excellent, caring and informative not missing a beat. Got to know her and a little of her family life as well. Lake Bled: astonishingly gorgeous, a place not to be missed when coming to Ljubljana, the latter a lively, moving, grooving place when sun dips it’s head. As for the Caves, a bit tiring after a long day in sun. Slovenian Alps, nature at its best, mountains that leave a deep impression. Love Slovenia!

Lake Bled Paragliding
We booked it over a phone where a nice lady was helping us with the reservation. One day before the flight we got the confirmation that the weather’s gonna be okay and we can fly. We were waiting for a while in the office and then got on the van and went to the starting place. Taking off was pretty chill and we were flying for around 20 min. Landing was also pretty soft. Overall, it was an amazing experience.

Canyoning And Rafting Adventure in Lake Bled Slovenia
Great day out for a small group of friends, family or work colleagues. A day full of fun and excitement. The guides are fantastic and well knowledged. They provide transport for you for the day and let you enjoy a lunch break between activities at bled. A great way to fill a day and see some of the beautiful sights of Slovenia while experiencing something new.

Grand SLOVENIA: Ljubljana + Lake Bled + Postojna Cave - fully Private Tour
Tanja from Viatica Travel was such a great guide. She was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the day and even the days leading up. Since it was just me she was happy to hear what I wanted out of each stop and customize accordingly. She advised me that the cave was cold and to bring warm clothes, I'm glad she did! Every part of the day was planned to optimize your time and was flexible enough to accommodate what interests you. I would recommend this tour to anyone!

Lake Bled and Ljubljana Tour from Trieste
Our driver. Bojau, was on time, very friendly and a good driver. Bojau made sure we saw all the high-lites of the city and Lake Bled. He did not rush us when taking photo's or enjoying the beautiful scenery. He gave us information about his country and his way of life. Bojau truly cares about his passengers, their safety, and that we enjoyed our tour.
