Visit two of Slovenia’s highlights on a full-day, small-group tour from Zagreb to Ljubljana and Lake Bled. Take a walking tour of the historic Slovenian capital, enjoy the view from the Ljubljana Castle, then drive into the Julian Alps to see Lake Bled’s medieval castle and island church. This full-day Slovenia tour includes all activities and round-trip transport from centrally-located Zagreb hotels, and it’s limited to 15 people for a more personal experience.
  • Visit Slovenia on a day-trip from Zagreb
  • Walking tour of Ljubljana
  • Ride a funicular to Ljubljana Castle
  • Tour Bled Castle and Lake Bled
  • Small group tour for personal service
  • Pickup and drop-off in centrally-located Zagreb hotels
Meet a driver at your Zagreb hotel or at Zrinjevac park (see Booking details for more information about hotel pickup), then begin the 87-mile (140-km) trip to Ljubljana in a climate-controlled vehicle, crossing the border into Slovenia en route. Upon arrival in Ljubljana, stretch your legs on a walking tour of the center, learning about Ljubljana history, architecture, and culture along the way.

You’ll see a quirky cement bridge decorated with dragons, long a symbol of Ljubljana, and board a glassed-in funicular railway up to the Ljubljana Castle, a medieval fortress with views across the city.

From the castle, continue to Lake Bled, a 34-mile (55-km) trip with views to the Julian Alps, a rocky stretch of mountain peaks that extend from Slovenia to Italy. You’ll have an aerial perspective on the lake from the ramparts of Bled Castle, which is perched high above the water on a rocky outcropping. Descend to the small town at the edge of Lake Bled for a walk by the water, or stop in a local café to try the local specialty, a cake layered with fragrant vanilla custard.

Following your time at Lake Bled, begin the 122-mile (197-km) return trip to Zagreb, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Excellent tour. Guide was excellent and on-time. Ljubljana beautiful and Lake Bled spectacular. Used Viator twice before in Spain and was also impressed there.

Our Driver Karlo and the city guide Mitta were excellent! Very informative, friendly, and gracious hosts. Well worth the money. Wish we had more time to spend in Slovenia!

Both parts of the trip were incredible. There was a perfect balance of guided tours and free time to be able to explore the area on your own. The guide was on time and very friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend!

My niece and I took this tour the first day of our trip to Croatia. Unfortunately, I got violently ill (not sure from what) so I missed the tour of Ljubljana! However, the local guide as well as our driving guide could not have been more helpful. The local guide found a cafe for me to rest while my niece took the tour - they were so gracious and let me sleep! My niece said the tour was very interesting - history, folklore and current events. It’s a beautiful city! I was able to rally and see Lake Bled, the castle and the surrounding area. We even saw a wedding at the castle! The whole area is like a fairytale. Don’t forget to get cream cake! Thank you so much to the guides again!

Had a wonderful day with Petra’s the driver and guide Ursula. I expected a large bus but instead it was 7 passengers in a mini van . Petra’s shared lots of information on population, ethnicity and economic climate of both Croatia and Ljubljana. Ursula met us at the market square and took us to the castle via funicular. Then we walked around the town and three squares. Ursula showed us a good place to eat a traditional Slovenian meal. Petros then drove us to Lake Bled, first to the castle so we could take photographs of the stunning blue water, then down to the lake to walk around the shore and sample some Bled cake The drive home was spectacular, a photo oppertunity in every direction, Alps, forests,, rolling hills, red roofed villages, church steeples. A simply magical day.a
Great Day

Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept the day entertaining. The drive was comfortable and unrushed, I would recommend this tour if you want an overview of both of these locations. You can't go wrong.
Great Tour

This is one of the tours I'll recommend when in Zagreb. Slovenia is beautiful and a nice country to visit. Also Lake Bled is simply amazing. Actually will recommend one night stay in Slovenia near Lake Bled to immerse in its beauty and take a stroll along the lake.
Slovenia was a lovely place to visit

The trip was nicely organised and I would highly recommend. We were lucky to be in a small group and there was a medieval show at the castle
