Lake Bled Tours

Lake Bled
Nestled into the foothills of the Julian Alps in northwest Slovenia, glacial Lake Bled is a place of spectacular natural beauty. Subterranean thermal springs keep the lake’s exquisite blue-green waters relatively warm during summer, making it a hot spot for water sports. Bled also makes a perfect base for exploring the Julian Alps. 

The Basics
Lake Bled is lovely to admire from any vantage point. Wander the paved path that circles the entire lakeshore, take a traditional pletna (wooden flat-bottom boat) ride to the island in the lake’s center (or rent a boat and row yourself), or tour the medieval Bled Castle perched on the cliffs above and enjoy panoramic views from the castle terrace. For the more adventurous, take a guided rafting trip down one of Bled’s emerald rivers, rappel down cascading waterfalls on a guided canyoning tour, or rent a bike and explore the surrounding countryside. Other popular activities in summer include swimming, kayaking, fishing, and stand-up paddleboarding.

Guided tours to Lake Bled depart from cities such as Ljubljana, Piran, Koper, Zagreb (Croatia), and Trieste (Italy). Some tours include a stop at Postojna Caves. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Lake Bled is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure travelers. 
  • Hike to the Ojstrica viewpoint, in the hills above Bled, for the best views of the lake. 
  • Relax at the private beach closest to town for a fee, or enjoy the public beach on the west shore of the lake for free. 
  • Be sure to grab a slice of Bled’s famous cream cake. 
  • The path around Lake Bled is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.

How to Get There
Lake Bled is located in northwestern Slovenia, an easy 34-mile (50-kilometer) drive from Ljubljana. Bled is serviced by two major train stations, and direct buses run frequently from Ljubljana to Lake Bled. The nearest airport is in Ljubljana.

When to Get There
Lake Bled is a joy to visit in any season. The high season is from mid-June through August, but September, October, April, and May are great months to visit thanks to mild weather and fewer visitors. Bled gets cold during the winter months, however the lake is very picturesque when blanketed with fresh snow.

Cycling Lake Bled
Cycling is an excellent way to explore Lake Bled and the surrounding countryside. Choose between a guided cycling tour or renting a bike and exploring on your own. There is no shortage of bike rental providers in Bled, and most bike rentals come with bike locks, repair kits, and maps of the area.
