I highly recommend doing this tour with Roundabout.
We had a stop at Koper on a long & enjoyable Oceania cruise from Barcelona to Venice. For the day in Koper, we were fortunate to book with Roundabout for a full day tour to Lake Bled, which was gorgeous, and to Ljubljana, which was amazing.View all reviews
A charming half day trip to lake Bled
From Ljubljana to the Alpine region below the Julian Alps, you will reach Bled, the magnificent Alpine resort with the only true island in Slovenia. For centuries Bled has been the symbol of natural beauty and home to fairy tales. Ascend the old 12th-century castle, perched on top of a steep cliff with spectacular views of the lake, the famous Bled island and the surrounding peaks. The castle is not only home to fairy tale weddings, cultural events and important protocol meetings, but also a museum of manual printing and a wine cellar.
A boat ride with ‘Pletna’ – traditional boat made by local, is among the must-do things when visiting Bled. Not only because of the authentic boat experience, but a true journey back in time. Standing paddllers will take you to the island with 99 stone steps on the way to the Assumption of Mary church and the fortune bell. Make sure not to miss the Bled cream cake, the notorious local dessert famous all around Slovenia, before leaving town.
