Alpine Region Day Trip from Ljubljana
At Lake Bled, stroll around the picturesque lake, and then hop in a
pletna (a traditional wooden boat) and cruise to the island in the center — the only true island in Slovenia. Visit the striking Vintgar Gorge, a canyon about 2.5 miles (4 km) southwest of Bled. The canyon’s sheer walls are as high as 330 feet (100 meters). And don’t miss the beautiful waterfall Šum, dropping water from 85 feet (26 meters).
Break for lunch (own expense) and then carry on to Bohinj, the largest glacial lake in the country. Take some free time to go for a swim or embark on a canoe ride (own expense) to indulge in the natural beauty of the place.
Finally, visit the castle-topped Škofja Loka, boasting the oldest bridge in Central Europe. Stroll the narrow lanes of the charming town, which has been in existence for over a millennium. And then hop back on the shuttle and return to the original start point in Ljubljana.

Urban was an amazing guide, energetic, funny and engaged with the group of 16. Loved the Vintgar gorge hike especially.
Mini van arrived on time and was comfortable.Our tour guideNadja was very informative of her country and it's history, this she delivered with a smile and humour. Throughout the day there was no rush to move you on leaving us the time to enjoy our experience which gave us very enjoyable and loving experience of Slovenia. Amazing trip.
The whole experience was exceptional in every respect. We saw many interesting aspects of the alpine region- gorges, mountains, lakes,castles, old villages, countryside, community living, local farms. We covered a lot in one day. Our local guide was exceptional- friendly, informative, personal and obviously had a passion for his country. All in all a wonderful day in Slovenia. Can thoroughly recommend.
