Tour Details

Pearl, locked in mountainous Alps

Morning mists during sunrise or evening sunsets over majestic Alps are perfect for that »self/ie« moment. And there is much more to be experienced at Bled, Slovenian prime Alpine resort-town! Climb the rocky castle for magnificent areal views, cruise to church island with traditional wooden »Pletna« boat, ring a Bell of Good Luck, take a break and try »kremšnita«, local pastry, stroll around the lake and embrace the nature.

Many options to choose, which you can combine into your own individual package!

What to Expect

Small group approach with carefully planned time, where experienced local tour operator’s chauffeur guide will collect you at designated location for an informative hourly ride to mountainous Alpine region to visit Bled. Upon arrival you will be introduced to destination and possible activities to experience:

Take a short walk along the lake shore. The beauty of the surrounding mountains reflects on the lake surface. Throughout the year visitors will enjoy the peace of the lake and fresh air.

Climb atop a steep cliff more than 100m above the lake, Bled Castle is how most people imagine a medieval fortress to be, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views. The castle houses a unique treasure – a reconstructed Gutenberg’s wooden printing press on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using hand-made paper.

On the lake shore take ‘pletna’ handmade wooden traditional boat to the lake island. Rowers still use man power as in old days, making your experience more memorable. The tiny, tear-shaped island beckons from the shore and the ride with the ‘pletna’ boat is a real thrill. Climb atop 99 stairs and ring a bell for your wishes to come true.

Upon return from the island stop at the local patisserie and take a break; taste Bled’s famous cream cake – kremšnita. Since the last 60 years, as many as 12 million cream cakes have been sold. Try it yourself.

After a nice half day experience we will return back to Ljubljana.

Drop off will be at same location as pick up.

  • Enjoy the view from the ramparts of Castle Bled
  • Have a memorial certificate on hand-made paper and printed on a reconstructed Gutenberg's wooden printing press
  • Take the »pletna« boat to the tiny island on the lake
  • Ring the »lucky bell« three times
  • Do not leave Lake Bled before tasting its famous cream cake - kremšnita

Lake Bled and Bled Castle
Great half day trip – there were 4 of us and we had a nice, knowledgeable driver and a great vehicle for the trip. It was drizzling, but the rain stopped just in time for photos of Lake Bled from the ferry. Wonderful. The island is small by scenic and 90 steps to get to the top from the ferry landing. The ferry is man powered like in Venice! The Castle was just ok but with incredible views of the countryside and Lake Bled and the famous church. Worth it to see this famous attraction.

A Day Well Spent
This is a great half day tour of Bled. Milan the tour guide was excellent and provided good suggestions of how to best use the time at our disposal. You will have ample time to take a stroll through town and take a pletna boat ride to the island in the lake.

FAMOUS DESSERT

We left Portoroz, which is on the west coast, and drove to Lake Bled on the way to Ljubljana. It was raining lightly during the first week in May. Our guide took us to Vila Bled for their famous cream cake and coffee. The portions are very generous so you can share. After the rain subsided we had an opportunity to go outside on the patio to get some pictures of the castle, the island with the church, the boats that take you to the island, and the people with umbrellas waiting for the next boat. It is a picturesque location. We can say we were there. Then it started rising again and we were on our way.

The sun shone upon us.

Had a great time with Lidija as our guide. She was friendly and informative and knew a great deal about her country. The day was wonderful.

Excellent tour

We booked this tour well in advance knowing it might be cancelled if there were insufficient numbers. No-one else booked but Milan ran a personal tour for us for which we were very grateful. He was extremely knowledgeable about Slovenia and shared that with us on the drive out in his clean, modern air conditioned van. At the lake he drove us around to see the views then left us for 3 hours to do as we chose, which meant not paying for unwanted extras. We chose the pletna boat ride to the island and coffee and cake on return. On the way back to our hotel he gave us good information on what to do for the reainder of our stay in Ljubljana. I would recommend his tour.
