A trip to Lake Bled is a must on any visit to Slovenia. Join our half-day tour and visit this charming Alpine town on the edge of the Julian Alps.

Bled Castle is more than a thousand years old and one of the most spectacular castles in Slovenia, perched high above the calm waters of Lake Bled. You will be able to admire the view of Lake Bled from various vantage points of the castle. 

Pssst... we will show you some of the best viewpoints from where you can enjoy a magnificent view of Lake Bled and the island of Bled and take beautiful photos.

During your trip to Lake Bled, treat yourself to a ride on a traditional pletna boat to Bled Island, one of the top attractions in Slovenia. Pletna boats are unique on Lake Bled and are steered by a single oarsman with two long oars. After the boat ride, you will have some time to explore the small island and enjoy the breathtaking views of the surrounding area. Optionally, you can visit the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and even ring the wishing bell that has been ringing over Lake Bled since 1534.

You can also take a short walk along the shore of Lake Bled and watch the majestic swans and playful ducks swimming on the lake. Or you can relax and take a break in one of the cafes - where you should definitely try kremšnita, the traditional Bled cream cake.
