Raft 'n Free (Bled)

Excursion to one of Slovenia's most popular resort towns, famous for its alpine lake with an island in the middle, includes a raft ride down the Sava river.

Bled became a popular tourist resort in the 19th century, when the Swiss doctor Arnold Rikli discovered the beneficial properties of the area's natural resources and founded a health centre there. Bled's premier attractions are a lake of glacial origin with an island in the middle and a castle whose history dates back to the 11th century. On the way back to Ljubljana there is a possibility of a stop at the historical city of Škofja Loka. The town of Škofja Loka boasts more medieval features than any other place in Slovenia.

The price includes transfers, guidance, raft ride down the Sava river.
