Daytrip highlights

Bled island with Pletna boat

A trip to Bled must be a part of any visit to Slovenia. On our tour to Lake Bled we treat you with a traditional pletna boat ride to Bled island, a top attraction in Slovenia. Pletna boats are unique to Lake Bled and operated by a single rower with two long oars. Following the boat ride, you get some time to explore the little island and enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding area.

Optionally, you can enter the Church of the Assumption and even ring the wishing bell, which has been ringing over Lake Bled since 1534.

Bled castle above Lake Bled

Our tour to Lake Bled takes you up to Bled castle, perched on a sheer cliff high above Lake Bled. Visit the Bled castle museum, which gives you an insight into the history of the entire area, and admire the views of Lake Bled from several viewpoints at the castle. Bled castle is more than a thousand years old, and one of the most spectacular castles in Slovenia.


On the shore of Lake Bled it is possible to take a short walk along Lake Bled, admire the views, and watch the majestic swans and playful ducks swimming on the lake. Or you can relax and take a break in one of the coffee shops - where you need to try kremšnita, the traditional Bled custard cream cake.
