Bled is a good base from which to partake in any number of hikes into the eastern tranche of the Julian Alps. Although there is some good walking around Bled for all levels of expertise, there are some very enjoyable walks in the immediate vicinity of the lake. Velika Osojnica; the south western corner of the lake or a gentler, alternative walk up to Straza, the south west of the Grand Hotel Toplice. Take a stroll around the lake, climb up to the castle for some spectacular views over the lake. The hills surrounding Bled offer a choice of interesting walks.


Nestled in this picturesque area are the intriguing destinations of Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj, Kranjska Gora and Bovec: Lake Bled's beauty is renowned, nestled amidst dense pine forests and surrounded by the dramatic snow-capped Julian Alps, and its famous tiny wooded island has become the national symbol of Slovenia.


Discover Slovenia by combining the contrasting resorts we feature. Stay in the cultural city of Ljubljana and enjoy the restaurants and great nightlife; relax in the beautiful resort of Lake Bled where you must sample the famous Bled cream cake and visit the only island in Slovenia.
