3-day family getaway to Bled

Day 1

  • The island and the wishing bell

    Do you believe in magic? Then take your place in one of the traditional “pletna” boats, a modern electric-powered boat, or rent your own rowing boat and visit the island on Lake Bled. It was once a temple to Živa, the goddess of love, but today it is the home of the romantic little church of St. Mary Help of Christians and its famous wishing bell dating back to 1943.

The park is full of traces of prehistoric life in these parts. With petrified flora and fauna, local cultural heritage, spruce forests with an educational forest path, an emerald green lake, the Karl Zois botanical garden, the proximity of mountain trails and many other highlights, visitors will find plenty of sights and activities to keep them busy. Learning about petrified objects, the remnants of animals and plants that lived millions of years ago, is interesting not only for experts, but also for young explorers, stirring their imagination when they find fossils of tracheophytes, horsetails, bryozoans, sea lilies, urchins, shells and snails.

What follows is a half-hour walk through the 1,600-metre-long gorge carved out by the emerald-green mountain river Radovna. The path through the gorge leads over wooden bridges, from which you can observe waterfalls, rapids and pools created by the river along its path. (© Photo: Jošt Gantar, www.bled.si.)

Clear mountain streams and small rivers, which later merge into two larger ones - the Sava and the Soča, flow through the numerous ravines, beautiful gorges and troughs like Vintgar, Mlinarica and Mostnica. High up in the mountains lie the Triglav and Kriška jezera lakes, and in Bohinj, you can find Lake Bohinj – the largest permanent natural lake in Slovenia.

  • Lake Bled through the eyes of carriage drivers

    Lake Bled and the beauty that surrounds it can be viewed in several different ways. One of them is taking a traditional horse-drawn carriage called a fiacre, which will take you for a ride around the lake or sight-seeing in the surrounding area! The fiacre represents one of the many customs that has been passed on from one generation to the next, with fiacre drivers being easily distinguishable by their traditional livery. (© Photo: Jošt Gantar, www.bled.si.)

3-day getaway to Bled for active holiday-goers

Day 1

  • Jelovica – a unique protected environment in the highlands

    Start the day by climbing up to the Jelovica plateau, which stretches between 900 and 1,600 metres above sea level. Its highest peak is Partizanski vrh, which reaches an altitude of 1,441 metres. Jelovica is quite similar in composition and appearance to the Pokljuka plateau, only smaller. Fewer mountains means less space for livestock, and the forests there are home to many bird species that cannot be found elsewhere.

  • A bicycle trip along the trail of famous Slovenian beekeepers
    Are you ready to take your bike and discover the history of famous Slovenian beekeepers? Taking your electric bicycles that you can rent at the Hotel Park reception, you will start from the centre of Bled, ride along the lake and on to the village of Mlino, continuing past other scattered villages with interesting cultural sights and many old farms still active today. The whole trip is quite easy and lasts about 3 hours. However, we would suggest that you undertake it in the company of an experienced cycling guide.

    You can find more information about cycling routes in and around Bled here.

  • Experience adrenaline on the Dolinka Zipline

    Do you like the feeling of flying? Then you absolutely must try the Dolinka Zipline! Experienced guides will take you through the Sava Dolinka valley, a Natura 2000 area, protected as a natural monument due to its exceptional natural properties. You will cross the valley above the river on seven different ziplines measuring between 325 and 700 m, with a total length of 4 km.

Day 2

  • Mežakla
    Mežakla is a plateau with an elevation between 1,000 and 1,300 metres. It is situated between the rivers Radovna and Sava Dolinka, and is mostly covered with a spruce and beech forest. The plateau is part of the Triglav National Park, untouched and undeveloped for tourism. It is interspersed with pastures, where cattle still graze today, and many clear springs and torrential streams. However, the real attraction on Mežakla is the natural 15-metre-high bridge over a ravine, which was created due to the erosive action of water and the uneven weathering of various different rock types.
