What it feels like to be there...

Bled is a fascinating mix of West and East, old and new, active and laid back, yet somehow it succeeds in being all things to all people. Whether you gallop through the verdant Alpine hills, sip sparkling wine from your hot air balloon, descend a steep mountain on your bike or row across the still surface of the lake, a fun time is assured. 

What to do there…

Lake Bled is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Lake-swimming, Boat-trips, Hiking, Cycling, Mountain-biking, Rock-climbing, Horse-riding, Hot-air-ballooning, Rafting, Kayaking, Hydro-speeding, Skiing/Snowboarding, Cultural-visits, Spa/Massage.
  • Other: Swimming, Lake-side-lido, Golf.

Where to stay…

The 5* Grand Hotel Toplice is a 1930s icon set right on the lake and oozing authentic style and splendour. Take one of their rowing boats for a fabulous tour of the lake. 4* Vila Bled is a presidential manor house by the water, packed with old-fashioned Eastern European charm, warm hospitality and exciting activities.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: By car, Bled and Idrija are both about 1h from Ljubljana and <1.5h apart. Predjama is 1h from Ljubljana.
  • Weather: warm Apr-Oct, wet Oct-Nov, cold/snowy Nov-Mar.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

For a place with so many exciting, rejuvenating adventures on tap, the hotels and restaurants of Lake Bled have a charming, old-world quality. But loosen the collars of the well-to-do and you will find it is the same crowd jumping down a gorge with a hydro-speed float and distance swimming the refreshing lakes. Enjoy the rituals of dressing for dinner and acknowledging fellow guests. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

What it feels like to be there...

Slovenia is blessed with an amazing Alpine landscape, and the al-fresco gelateria in Ljubljana could just as easily be in Milan. This country is fascinating in its own right though, and ripe for adventure travel. Try rafting, climbing, canyoning, caving or lake swimming – or check out the amazing castles to get a feel for the local culture. 

Some practical information worth knowing…

The country’s main airport is in the capital Ljubljana, and from there this pretty country is small enough to make travel overland both practical and pleasurable. Dress for warm, sunny days, but take a jacket to wrap up in for the Alpine evenings. Since joining the Eurozone, currency and visas are straightforward.

5* Kendov Dvorec is a stunning 14th-century riverside manor house, dedicated to refined Slovenian cuisine. A place where time runs slowly, at a pace which modern life seems to have already forgotten. Explore the hills and historic sites by day, then retire here for decadent dining and deep sleep. 

The manor is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Upon crossing the threshold time loses importance. The alluring scent of the past, great works of art, beautiful hand-made Idrija laces, careful attention to the smallest detail, excellent cuisine accompanied by an exquisite selection of wines and soft music will fill you with unforgettable warmth.

4* Vila Bled is in an idyllically peaceful part of the city known as the jewel in the crown of the lovely Slovenian Alps. It reigns directly on the shores of Lake Bled, embraced by a magnificent park. This former presidential residence is nowadays a synonym for warm hospitality, comfort, timeless elegance, top-end gastronomy and unforgettable experiences. 

Bled is one of the most beautiful corners of picturesque Slovenia. The view across the lovely Lake Bled with its idyllic island is sure to take every visitor's breath away. The fairytale image is supplemented by the mighty medieval castle which broods over the lake on a steep cliff and the necklace of Alpine peaks that surrounds it. Swim across the lake to the island or head further afield for rafting, horse riding, mountain biking and other exciting adventures. Then retreat to the relaxing spa or gastronomic restaurant, apt to satisfy the most demanding gourmets.

What it feels like to be there...

For many people this region conjures up visions of spy dramas and narrow escapes. The Communist era in the East left behind lots of interesting sights and a few strange practices. But the region’s beautiful landscapes, grand castles and homely food are a recipe for pure enjoyment. Relax and be prepared for exciting surprises! 

Some practical information worth knowing…

This region is easily reached using connecting flights from all the European super-airports. Cheap flights are common even to smaller cities in tourist areas. The road network is generally good. In the former Communist states, some architecture, infrastructure and furnishing styles look functional or dated to a Western eye. The service style is also often perceived as abrupt because here it is good manners to be unobtrusive, not familiar or hands on. Visas can usually be obtained on arrival now, but queues can take time. Getting money from bank machines, airports and hotels is largely straightforward, especially in urban areas.
