Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet a driver at your Zagreb hotel or a central location (see Booking details for more information about hotel pickup), then begin the journey 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.

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, with views to the Julian Alps, a rocky stretch of mountain peaks that extend from Slovenia to Italy. You 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 return trip to Zagreb, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Ljubljana and Lake Bled Full Day Excursion from Zagreb

, Dec 2019
My wife and I really enjoyed this day trip to Ljubljana and Lake Bled. Our driver, Luka, who was also a guide for a part of the trip, arrived in good time to pick us up in a comfortable minibus, where there were 5 of us altogether. He was full of interesting information and was kind and courteous throughout. When we arrived in Ljubljana, we were met by our local guide for the walking tour of Ljubljana, Urša, who was excellent at explaining the history and legends of the area. She even brought us to a free tasting of locally produced liquors and honeys which went down very well, and knew her stuff when she was asked any questions. We then met up with our driver Luka again after lunch and we travelled to Bled Castle and Lake Bled, who was our guide for this part of the tour. He was very knowledgable in the history of the area, and made sure all of us were comfortable when accessing some of the steeper parts of the castle pathway, before we were safely transported back to Zagreb in the evening. Overall, this was an excellent experience, and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning this day trip from Zagreb.

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

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.
