Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Our guide Urban was an excellent tour guide giving good information with a sense of humour. The main sites we saw included gorgeous Lake Bled, glacial Lake Bohinj, Vintgar Gorge and Skofja Loka, a charming non-touristy village. Lovely day.

Good tour (with sour end)

Our tour—just 3 of us—was fine. Bled didn’t disappoint. The day ended on a sour note when we all 3 misunderstood our instructions from the driver:guide, Valentina. At the gorge, she told us to either walk to the last bridge then turn around and come back, or she would meet us at the end. We opted to meet her at the end, altho she didn’t explain clearly that that meant we’d walk 30 minutes on a dusty, hilly road away from the river. We eventually had to call the office to get picked up. Valentina seemed frustrated with us, even though all 3 of us felt that the instructions were unclear. She never took responsibility and never apologized. She even told us we were the first group to do this, making us feel even more stupid. (And we were not a stupid group!). In the end, we made it back safe. Lesson learned: Don’t give confusing “options” that can be misconstrued, and apologize when your customers are unhappy.

Almost 11 hrs of touring. Our tour guide Primus (hope I got the name correct) was exceptionally good. It was a small group just 5 of us. Had an awesome day!

Lake Bled is beautiful and the walk to the waterfalls was amazing. When in Lake Bled be sure to get the Cream Cake, delicious. I would recommend this tour when in Slovenia.

Astonishing places

Urban was the best guide ever. With a great sense of humor and the detailed info he gave about Slovenia he made the tour special. Lake Bled is stunning but Lake Bohinj and Vintgar Gorge are just out of this World. I do however think that for the price of the tour, at least one attraction should be included, as there are extra 15 euros for the castle, 9 for Vintgar Gorge and 11 for the boat ride to Bled Island (optional but not to miss). I would also suggest more time at the Castle and Lake Bohinj.

Excellent Day

We had a fantastic day and our guide was extremely friendly and gracious! The van was brand new and quite comfortable. We enjoyed that we had free time to explore as well as partially guided. We were fortunate to have perfect weather which just added to an already great day. One note: the Vintner Gorge can be a bit tough if you are uncomfortable with many stairs as my dad was. He stopped halfway (but honestly the best part is the first half anyways). Overall just a wonderful day and I highly recommend!

Our guide, Urban was informative and flexible which made for a great day. There was a mixture of guided activities and free time to do your own thing. The scenery was amazing and can definitely recommend going in the lakes for a swim!

Tour started by a pick up from Hotel visiting first the small village of Sofia Loca, proceeding to the beautiful Lake Bled boat ride to the island, then tour continued to Bohinj with another great Lake. Then experiencing the natural beauty of Vintgar Gorge. Ending in the Bled Castle for some magnificent views & some local wine. Ending the tour back in our hotel by the smart guide & driver tour leader Nena from Roudabout company.
