From Ljubljana to Lake Bled and Bled Castle Half-Day Tour

Begin your half-day tour in the morning with a pickup from your centrally located Ljubljana hotel. Then, sitting comfortably in an air-conditioned minivan, depart for the beautiful Lake Bled, nestled amid the Julian Alps on the edge of Triglav National Park. During the approx. 1-hour drive, gaze out at rural Slovenia and listen to your guide’s commentary about the glacier-formed lake.On arrival, spend a few moments drinking in views of the picturesque lake, backed by towering mountains, and the fairy-tale steeple of the Church of the Assumption of Mary on Bled Island, a tiny rock islet in the center of the lake.Then, climb aboard a two-oared wooden pletna and relax during a 15-minute boat ride to the island. With roughly 30 minutes of free time to explore, perhaps visit the church (own expense) or sample potica, a traditional Slovenian cake, at the cafe (own expense).Next, join back up with your guide and travel to Bled Castle, a medieval stronghold perched atop a sheer cliff overlooking the water. Listen to a brief introduction of the castle’s history from your guide, and then make the most of free time to visit the museum and absorb the bird’s-eye views of Lake Bled.When the time comes, return to your minivan and drive down to the lakeside. With time here spent at your leisure, perhaps enjoy a stroll along the lake, snap photos of the swans, or recharge with a kremšnita (vanilla cream cake) and coffee (own expense).Your half-day tour then concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel in Ljubljana.
