Top Things to Do In and Around Lake Bled

Slovenia, Bled Guide (B): Top Things to Do In and Around Lake Bled

Lake Bled is Slovenia’s leading mountain resort and deserves at minimum a day trip visit from Ljubljana. Nature lover and hikers, however, would enjoy at least a three day stay if not longer. A whole day can be spent just around the area and many side trip excursions are sublime. If visiting Slovenia, this area should not be missed!

We stayed at Hotel Triglav at Lake Bled for two nights. What a wonderful spot! It is perched atop a hill that provides magnificent views of the lake and its island below. Its Restaurant 1906, surrounded with windows for a spectacular view, serves a tremendous 4-course dinner which included cheese and nuts, pea soup, beef or fish, and a tasty dessert. Both the restaurant and the hotel are a delight.

The walk from our hotel, down the stairs and around the Lake Bled is four miles. A portion of the walk is on a quiet road that the tourist train follows, but it also follows a shaded past pletna boat rental stations, villas, and resorts. I was short on time, so if I had to do it over again, I might have rented a bike to pass along the road quickly in order enjoy some of the idyllic spots with amazing views of the island a little longer. ......
