Avoid bus or train hassles on this guided half-day tour of Lake Bled from Ljubljana. You’ll enjoy round-trip transportation in an air-conditioned coast to the shores of this picturesque, emerald-green lake. Take a wooden boat ride to Bled Island and a tour of the clifftop Bled Castle. Hotel pickup and drop-off make for a seamless trip, while a small group size ensure you’ll receive plenty of personal attention.
What to Expect
Your half-day tour of Lake Bled begins with a pick-up from your Ljubljana hotel. You’ll travel the hour from Ljubljana to Lake Bled in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan.

Upon arrival at Lake Bled, take some time to admire the lake’s peaceful, emerald waters. Then, after a 15-minute ride in a traditional, wooden boat, explore Bled Island as you wish. Tour the photogenic Our Lady of the Lake church or enjoy a snack in the cafe.

Next, you’ll journey back to shore for a tour of Bled Castle. The castle was built precariously on the edge of the lake during medieval times and offers stunning panoramic views of Lake Bled from atop the cliff.

Reconvene with your guide back at the lake where you’ll enjoy some free time for photographs or a quick dip in the lake. Finally, hop into the van for the trip back to your Ljubljana hotel.

Hi Lydia, we took this trip on this last 26th October so it is likely to run during the winter also. It was raining quite a bit, but we enjoyed it very much anyway.
