Lake Bled

Gregorchicheva ulica 22, Bled, Upper Carniola, 4260

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.

Excellent trip with a wonderful guide
Excellent trip with a wonderful guide who looked after us with great commentary along the way. She offered us great options at each location. It's a long day, but it was made to be a comfortable and highly enjoyable one. Picked up and dropped off at hotel. Highly recommended!

Lake Bled and Ljubljana Tour from Trieste
Exploring Slovania's countryside and city as well as Lake Bled was an unexpected surprise. What an amazing part of the world. There is a lot of driving in this tour (unfortunately we experienced some traffic, it happens)but enjoyed seeing a part of the world. Highly recommend this tour.

Lake Bled & Bohinj

Lake Bled and Bohinj - Beyond the Alpine Lakes - Vintgar Ticket Included
Excellent day out. Initially we were concerned about the length of the trip (it was the only one available) but our worries were unfounded. Our host Irina was superb and very knowledgable. Lake Bled is a must see and we were given the flexibility of deciding how we spent our time there. Bohinj is also a beautiful area and with hindsight this is the trip to do as we could have missed this wonderful part of Slovenia. Whole day was superb with no negative aspects whatsoever. Recommend!

Private Tour: Ljubljana and Lake Bled Day Trip from Zagreb
This tour was our favorite part of our trip to Slovenia and Croatia. Most importantly, it was stress-free. Ella was a fantastic guide. She spoke great English, was very helpful and easy to talk to, and made sure we were able to get around safely and peacefully. Crossing the boarder from Croatia was very simple with our guides. Ljubljana and Lake Bled were both gorgeous. Highly recommend!
