Bled fairytale in winter
A half day tour to Bled will astound you with it's magical lake with an island and a magnificant castle above it. Visiting a lesser-known but very interesting town of Radovljica on the way back.
From US$54.71
Escape the bustle of the city on a scenic half-day tour from Ljubljana to Lake Bled. Over six hours, accompany your guide and small group on a ride through the dramatic Slovenia’s countryside to explore stunning natural settings and main attractions like Bled Castle (or the medieval town of Radovljica in the winter time). Finish with an optional relaxing float on Bled Lake by Pletna boat before heading back to Ljubljana.
What to Expect

From Ljubljana to the Alpine region below the Julian Alps, you will reach Bled, the magnificent Alpine resort with the only true island in Slovenia. For centuries Bled has been the symbol of natural beauty and home to fairy tales. Ascend the old 12th-century castle, perched on top of a steep cliff with spectacular views of the lake, the famous Bled island and the surrounding peaks. The castle is not only home to fairy tale weddings, cultural events and important protocol meetings, but also a museum of manual printing and a wine cellar.

A boat ride with ‘Pletna’ – traditional boat made by local, is among the must-do things when visiting Bled. Not only because of the authentic boat experience, but a true journey back in time. Standing paddllers will take you to the island with 99 stone steps on the way to the Assumption of Mary church and the fortune bell. Make sure not to miss the Bled cream cake, the notorious local dessert famous all around Slovenia, before leaving town.

In the winter season (November – March) we visit a nearby town of Radovljica instead of free time in Bled. The town is known for it’s completely preserved medieval main sqaure layout originating back to the 15th century. Radovljica is also the Slovene center of apiculture and various crafts related to honey. In December, festive markets take place and give the town a very festive vibe.

Each guest can decide which places he/she would like to visit and can communicate that with the guide.

Sorry for the delay - i don't check this often enough, apparently. If I'm not mistaken there were morning and afternoon tours. Enjoy, Slovenia is really beautiful!

Hi. That, I'm not sure. All the ladies on my tour wanted to go see the church on the island so no one opted to go into town to shop. Afterward we went to the castle and before returning to Llubjana we stopped for the famous... More
