What You Can Expect

Alpine Region Day Trip from Ljubljana

Visit the stunning Lake Bled

Your adventure begins with a convenient pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel or other meeting point. After a brief introduction with your guide and fellow travelers, settle in to your comfortable minivan and set off for the journey to your first point of interest. Admire the views from your window as you travel into Slovenia’s green hillsides.

First up: Lake Bled, an emerald lake surrounded by dramatic mountains. After a brief stroll, board an apletna (a Slovenian wooden boat) and journey to the tiny island in the center of the lake—Solvenian’s only island. Explore the island as your guide reveals its fascinating and quirky history, while pausing for photos along the way.

After, it’s a quick drive to the Vintgar Gorge, a must see. This stunning canyon is known for its grand walls that rise 330 feet (100 meters) into the sky. Nearby you’ll discover Šum, a beautiful waterfall that drops 85 feet (26 meters). Enjoy lunch on your own (additional expense) before heading to Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest glacial lake. Take advantage of free time to rent a canoe (own expense) or to swim in the lake’s cerulean waters.

Before the tour winds to a close, stop at the town of Škofja Loka, which has a fairytale castle and the oldest bridge in Central Europe. Take some time to explore the quaint town and take some photos as the sun begins to set. You tour ends back at the starting point.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

This was truly a lovely day out. It did not feel rushed at all, which had been my main worry. The locations are fantastic, with Bled being every bit the fairytale location it is marketing as, and Vintgar Gorge being absolutely worth the cost of entry. Swimming in a glacial lake, Bohnij, was a lovely cap off to the day.

You really pack in a lot on this trip but nothing feels rushed. In fact, as nice as the lakes and castle were, I'm not sure how much longer you'd want to spend at these locations when you've only got a day to play with. Lake Bled is incredibly pretty and clearly growing in popularity, but didn't feel too busy. The guide answered every question from the group, drove sensibly, made a good restaurant suggestion, took plenty of couples pictures and genuinely seemed to be a decent guy. Highly recommended!

It was a scenic full day. The second half of the day was more authentic, however the entire day should be experienced. Adrianna was an excellent guide. We stopped in villages to walk around and have lunch. She made it a charming experience.

Had an absolute blast on this day trip! Fantastic group of just 7 people, with an incredible tour guide. Highlight of the trip was without a doubt, Lake Bohinj, which was absolutely perfect for swimming. We managed to cram a lot into just one day, making this the perfect tour to soak up some of the beautiful lakes of Slovenia.
