What You Can Expect

Slovenia in One Day: Small-Group Day Trip to Lake Bled, Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle from Ljubljana

Enjoy a train ride in Postojna Cave

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.

Excellent is an under statement. Urska, our tour guide was amazing. It was a small group of 5, and that made it wonderful to gel in. Urska not only is very good with her knowledge about the tour/Slovenia but she is a well read and informed person. She could strike conversations and jokes with all the fellow tourists which made the day well spent. Her love for her country reflect in how proudly she passes on the information. Thanks to Urska, Slovenia Explorer and Viator for making it an amazing day!!

And the country itself is so beautiful and scenic.
