With its crystal-clear emerald lakes, picture-perfect castle and fairytale island at the foothills of the Alps, Bled is the perfect spot to base your eight-day active adventure in Slovenia. Hike lush trails on Mt Vogel in Triglav National Park, go cycling next to the Radovljica River and hold on to your helmets on an exhilarating white water rafting trip on the Soka River with expert guides. Walk the Vintgar Gorge boardwalk, discover the secrets of Ljubljana and see the little village of Ribcev Laz. Along with all this adrenaline, there’s plenty of free time to discover bled at your own pace – kayaking or ziplining, anyone?

Slovenia is Beautiful! Well planned itinerary with enough time to enjoy your free time walking around Lake Bohinj, or take a swim. Vlad was a great tour leader and created a memorable week for our tour group! Highly recommend!

I spent a wonderful week in the Slovenian mountains with Vladamir and our Intrepid group. My daughter (18yrs) and I loved the whitewater rafting and hiking through stunning summer weather in the alps. Highly recommended.

Slovenia is beautiful. Great architecture & museums & fun things to do in Ljubljana (I arrived a few days early). Lake Bled & Bohinj areas are beautiful. Went on a few hikes on my own (free time). Happy country (lots of babies!).
