Alpine Lakes (Bled & Bohinj)

Add to MyVisit Add to MyVisit

During this excursion to Bled and Bohinj, Slovenia's most beautiful alpine lake resorts, you will learn about the local history and see the area's major sights.

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. The Alpine Lakes excursion includes a tour of the town of Bled, a visit to Bled Castle and a traditional "pletna" boat ride to Bled Island.

At the Bohinj lake resort, famous for its unspoiled nature, you will visit the 14th century Church of St. John and the Savica Waterfall, both located in the vicinity of Lake Bohinj. The Savica Waterfall is the source of the Sava Bohinjka river, immortalised by the greatest Slovenian poet, France Prešeren (1800-1849), in his epic poem The Baptism by the Savica.

The price includes transfers, guidance, admission to Bled Castle, the Savica waterfall and the church on Bled Island, and a return 'pletna' boat ride to the island.
