You’ve seen nothing ’til you’ve visited Lake Bled. The stunning, picturesque area of Bled belongs on a honeymooner’s postcard; with the Julian Alps as it’s backdrop and an ancient castle clinging to a craggy cliff-face overlooking a tiny church-topped island in the middle of an emerald-green lake… it has it all. The clean, crisp air will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and you will fall totally in love with this place.
Things to do:
- Take a boat to the island of Bled and visit the pilgrimage church atop it, before taking a walk to the top of the bell tower and giving the bell a ring (it’s considered good luck for the groom to carry his bride up the stairs and for them to make a wish inside)!
- Hike to the top of the cliffs and explore the medieval castle that holds stunning views of the whole area of Bled
- Outdoor activities; canyoning in pristine rocks, canoeing, kayaking, snorkelling, white water rafting, cycling… Bled has it all for the outdoor lover! Research beforehand and find a good excursion company to take you for a day of all your chosen activities, or else use one of the tourist info spots in the town to help you.
Tie this awesome trip in with a visit to Ljubljana. Fly to the capital, stay in the gorgeous Bed and Breakfast Atticus right by Ljubljana castle, take a walk to the top and enjoy the contrast of old architecture and trendy bars in this beautiful city. This is a trip not to be missed!
