Package Itinerary

From Ljubljana head to the Alpine region below the Julian Alps, to reach Bled, the magnificent Alpine resort. Ascend the old castle perched on top of a steep cliff above the glacial Lake Bled. The castle terraces offer spectacular views of the lake and its tiny island in the middle. Take a boat ride with ‘Pletna’ – a traditional boat made by the locals, and reach the only true island in Slovenia or visit the fascinating Bled Vintgar gorge, one of the most popular natural features in Slovenia.


Lake Bled, Serbo-Croatian Bledsko Jezero, glacial lake in the extreme northwestern region of Slovenia. Situated at 1,558 feet (475 meters) above sea level at the foot of the Julian Alps northwest of Ljubljana, it is a summer health and holiday resort and a winter sports center with good road and rail connections and summer air service. The mild subalpine climate affords a long summer season for bathing. Nearby is Triglav National Park and other mountains in the Julian Alps and Karavanke.

The town of Bled has historic landmarks. On a small island in the lake is the Church of the Assumption, on which a Slavic pagan shrine stood until the 11th century. Bled Castle stands atop a 460-foot cliff on the lakeshore. Lake Bled is surrounded by vibrant green forests and overlooked by Bled Castle, the oldest castle in Slovenia which can only be accessed by a Plenta, a traditional wooden boat. Lake Bled is the very quintessence of 'picture perfect' and an absolute must-do on your travel itinerary for Slovenia.

Bled is a very small town and the main attraction is the lake, which is walkable or you could rent a bicycle to go around the perimeter. Bike rentals can be found around the lake or through your hostel in Bled.
