Slovenia is brimming with beauty — from the charming cobblestoned lanes of Ljubljana to the natural allure of the Alps. This small-group day trip gives a ‘greatest hits’ of the country, visiting the jaw-dropping Lake Bled and Bohinj located inside Triglav National Park, and then discovering the town of Škofja Loka, one of the oldest towns in the country. Numbers limited to eight people, ensuring a small-group experience with personalized attention from the guide.
Begin with a pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel, or if you're staying in a pedestrian zone, meet your guide at the prearranged meeting point. Then, sit back aboard your air-conditioned minivan and relax during the pleasant journey to Lake Bled, one of Slovenia's many stunning natural wonders.
At Lake Bled, stroll around the picturesque lake, and then hop in a
pletna (a traditional wooden boat) and cruise to the island in the center — the only true island in Slovenia. Visit the striking Vintgar Gorge, a canyon about 2.5 miles (4 km) southwest of Bled. The canyon’s sheer walls are as high as 330 feet (100 meters). And don’t miss the beautiful waterfall Šum, dropping water from 85 feet (26 meters).
Break for lunch (own expense) and then carry on to Bohinj, the largest glacial lake in the country. Take some free time to go for a swim or embark on a canoe ride (own expense) to indulge in the natural beauty of the place.
Finally, visit the castle-topped Škofja Loka, boasting the oldest bridge in Central Europe. Stroll the narrow lanes of the charming town, which has been in existence for over a millennium. And then hop back on the shuttle and return to the original start point in Ljubljana.
