Overview
Discover three of Slovenia’s top attractions in one day on this scenic small-group day trip from Ljubljana. Marvel at beautiful Lake Bled and ride a traditional ‘pletna’ boat to Bled Island to explore and perhaps try scrumptious ‘potica’ nut cake. Then, explore Bled Castle perched above the lake before free time for lunch. Finally, visit cliffside Predjama Castle and ride a mini-train into Postojna Cave, the famous cave network of stalactites, stalagmites and eerie halls. Numbers are limited to eight on this small-group tour for a personalized experience.
Highlights
  • A great choice for travelers with limited time in Slovenia 
  • Hassle-free transport to Bled Castle, Predjama Castle, and Postojna Cave
  • Learn the Slovenian legends and history of the three sites from your guide
  • Views of Lake Bled from a pletna boat ride to Bled Island
  • Convenient round-trip transportation from your Ljubljana hotel
What to Expect
Begin your day with a pick-up at your Ljubljana hotel in an air-conditioned minivan and travel with your small group and driver-guide to Lake Bled. On the hour-long drive through the countryside, you’ll learn about the history of the area from your guide. Catch a ride on a traditional wooden pletna boat and float across the lake to Bled Island. Once you disembark, you’ll have time to independently explore the Church of the Assumption of Mary (own expense). When you return from the island, make your way to Bled Castle and visit the museum. Enjoy the views of the lake and snap pictures from the clifftop. Drive onto Predjama Castle, a Renaissance-era structure built into the side of a cliff. Afterwards, journey to Postojna Cave, where you will ride a mini-train through the rock formations. At the end of the day, your guide drives you back to your hotel.

Port of Koper is an hour from Ljubljana. It would be best to contact the tour company to see if they will pick you up at your ship.
