Meet your guide at your central Ljubljana hotel for a small-group tour of Lake Bled, Postojna Cave, and Predjama Castle. Buckle up as your air-conditioned minivan sets off for Lake Bled nestled in Slovenia’s Julian Alps.
Appreciate Slovenia’s green countryside during the hour drive and learn about the mixed glacial and tectonic formations of Lake Bled. Hear about Bled Island’s iconic 17th century pilgrimage church decorated with Gothic frescos. As you wind into town through majestic peaks, notice the 11th century Bled Castle rising high atop a stony bluff.
Next, hop aboard a wooden pletna and enjoy crystal clear waters on your cruise to the Island. Disembark and spend time roaming the Church of the Assumption of Mary (own expense) or tasting local slovenian treats at the island cafe.
After returning from the island, head up to Bled Castle to explore its restored buildings and historic walls. Enter the museum and delve into the castle’s history as you see its artifacts, armor and weaponry. Then grab stunning panoramic views of the lakes from atop the cliff.
Enjoy more time on your own and stroll the lake stopping for lunch (own expense). Perhaps try some tasty potica, a slovenian nut roll pastry (own expense). Then meet back up with your group for a drive to Predjama Castle.
Arrive at this eerie Renaissance-era castle tucked away in the rocky cliffs of south-central Slovenia. Discover the legend of Erazem Predjama as you weave through many dark staircases into mysterious rooms.
Finally move on to Slovenia’s most popular site Postojna Cave. Wind along a mini-train through the second longest cave network in the country. Then follow your guide into the creepy natural chambers and witness strange stalactites, stalagmites and rock formations. Learn about the blind salamanders referred to as ‘human fish’ which live in the subsurface rivers.
On your way back to your hotel in Ljubljana, enjoy sharing your memorable day in Slovenia.

Beautiful cold frosty day with blue skies . We saw the Postojna caves and the Predjama castle with minimum people . We loved the boat ride across lake Bled then onto the castle . We then enjoyed the special Bled cake and Christmas market . It made many great memories

I really enjoyed this day tour. Patricia, our guide, was very nice, knowledgeable, kind and funny. They were really punctual, everything was well organized (despite visiting some of the most crowded locations in Slovenia). It's a long day but it's certainly worth it if you have only a weekend or so in the area around Ljubljana.

Foreign person (did not understand English) gave us wrong information and company called us night before to tell us they couldn’t pick us up. We lost an entire day. They use foreign customer service reps and local companies that don’t care. Horrible experience.

Vezna, our tour guide was wonderful at explaining all the sights we visited. Slovenia in One Day was an excellent way of seeing the different beautiful areas of Ljubljana, Lake Bled, Predjama Castle, and Postonja Cave.
