Alpine Region Day Trip from Ljubljana

    What to Expect
    Your adventure begins with a convenient pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel or other meeting point. After a brief introduction with your guide and fellow travelers, settle in to your comfortable minivan and set off for the journey to your first point of interest. Admire the views from your window as you travel into Slovenia’s green hillsides.

    First up: Lake Bled, an emerald lake surrounded by dramatic mountains. After a brief stroll, board an apletna (a Slovenian wooden boat) and journey to the tiny island in the center of the lake—Solvenian’s only island. Explore the island as your guide reveals its fascinating and quirky history, while pausing for photos along the way.

    After, it’s a quick drive to the Vintgar Gorge, a must see. This stunning canyon is known for its grand walls that rise 330 feet (100 meters) into the sky. Nearby you’ll discover Šum, a beautiful waterfall that drops 85 feet (26 meters). Enjoy lunch on your own (additional expense) before heading to Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest glacial lake. Take advantage of free time to rent a canoe (own expense) or to swim in the lake’s cerulean waters.

    Before the tour winds to a close, stop at the town of Škofja Loka, which has a fairytale castle and the oldest bridge in Central Europe. Take some time to explore the quaint town and take some photos as the sun begins to set. You tour ends back at the starting point.

    A great day out from Ljubljana, with a good variety of different activities. The Vintgar Gorge was very crowded, which made it difficult to do the whole walk in the time available.

    Good round-up for one day. Jan our guide was knowledgeable and helpful and spoke well. Maybe a little too much time spent at Lake Bled by ourselves as each allowed to do what they wanted, specially as I was not prepared for a swim !...More

    Probably not - although you could skip visiting the cat. A couple on our trip did the white water rafting and we picked them up later but they also missed the lunch stop too. So depends what you want - may be easier to go... More
