A Weekend of Activities in Lake Bled

A Weekend of Activities in Lake Bled, Bled, Slovenia (B)

After just half a day in Lake Bled, I was already thinking about how great it would be to spend a week there. If you can’t spare a week, you can do a whole lot with your time in Bled in a weekend that includes hiking, boating, and enjoying local delicacies. Here are some ideas for activities in Lake Bled.

If you’re a fan of quiet but tough hikes, Lake Bled has got plenty of activity for you. There are a couple of viewpoints in the surrounding hills that will get your heart pumping and give you sweeping views of the area around the lake. One is located on Straza Hill where you can also do toboggan runs in the summer. The viewpoint shows up on Google Maps as Sunset View Straza. This point is accessible by the chairlift or by a hike. The hike wraps around the back of Straza Hill away from the lake. Once you get up there, Bled Island and Castle will be beneath you.

Two other hikes in the area are on the western side of the lake, Mala Osojnica and Ojstrica. They share part of the same route up but one is shorter and less arduous. You can do both by starting with Ojstrica at the signpost that divides the two routes, then when you reach the peak, double back to the signpost and go the other way. We decided to do Mala Osojnica which was a little steeper. I had seen this described as a challenging hike. My arrogant ass was like lol please, I’ve hiked up 15,000 foot mountains, I think I can handle this little hill. False. I could not. ......
