What You Can Expect

Ljubljana and Lake Bled Full Day Excursion from Zagreb

Castle Bled view

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.

Beautiful tour, great guide. The other people in my group were super irritating, but that isn't the company's fault : Traveler tip: Would recommend not going on a Sunday, because Ljubljana is a little dead. Such a beautiful country, though.

I loved the experience! Petros was a great option. I also did Plitvice with them and was awesome as well. Small group in a van, which makes border crossing easier. Our guide Steve was great. Very friendly and caring. Gave us tips for photos and where to eat. Shared great info regarding Slovenia!

My guide, Goran, and the local guide in Ljubljana, were outstanding. Besides the usual infor mation you'd expect on a tour, Goran and I talked about all sorts of topics which gave me a much better understanding and appreciation for the region. Another plus was that even though I was the only person going, they didn't cancel on me and I ended up having a private tour. The local company Viator uses was also very helpful when a second tour I'd booked did have to be cancelled due to heavy snow and road closures including the national park.

Slovenia is a beautiful country and I highly recommend anyone visiting Croatia to go. But what made my tour wonderful was a knowledgeable, caring and happy tour guide, Stjepan! He had so much to tell me about the history and lifestyles of both Slovenia and Croatia! You must request him!!! Amazing!

Goran was a fantastic guide, very knowledgable and was able to answer all of my questions with ease. The tour was well organized, not at all rushed. The local guide in Ljubljiana was equally amazing and full of knowledge. It felt like a day with friends!

The tour guide was super knowledgeable about Croatia and Slovenia. He was passionate about telling us from the Roman empire. The hospitality was superb. When we were at the Ljubljana, we ran into a mayor. He was a great and humble man, which it made the city more attractive. Ljubljana was small, but intimate city with a taste of Austria architecture.
Lake Bled was just amazingly beautiful. I've always living and working in big cities most of my life. I always appreciate something only nature and history can offer.
