Lake Bled holidays

A tourist pearl on the edge of Triglav National Park. This paradise on Earth is swelled by green tourism, which is why the Bled is one of the places with fresh air and a healing climate.

Lake Bled
Slovenia family holidays

The city and its surroundings offer you many natural experiences and a really large selection of activities for families with children, adrenalin lovers and athletes. If you want to explore it all, you will have to take several days off.

Because we are a free-spirited family and I want my children to have a relaxed holiday, I decided to take an amazing house with a pool from a private provider with a beautiful yard in front the house with a wonderful large green area, so kids can play on it, garden furniture, deckchairs and barbecue. Of the apartments in the house, some of them have modern furniture, and the other has slightly older furniture but it's cute. The provider also has bicycles for rent.

Lake Bled holidays- accommodations and more

In terms of other accommodations, hotels, apartments, glamping, holiday homes and other providers are available.

Let us take a closer look at the treasures of this oasis paradise on Earth. One of them is a magical lake of a unique shape carved by a glacier. In some places it reaches a depth of up to 30 meters, it is home to 19 different types of fish, and beautiful colourful water lilies float on the surface.

Access to the lake is provided by well-maintained paths and wooden jetties. In the summer you can swim in the lake, diving while in the winter, if the surface is enough frozen, you can go ice-skating.

We recommend a visit in the summer or spring when nature wakes up, everything turns green and there are many flowers, ornamental shrubs and trees.

In the middle of the lake is a unique natural island and you can get there by boats called platina or rent your boat and row towards the islet.

There is a path, which is 6 kilometres long or just sitting and enjoy a view of the lake by the beautiful terrace of the hotel.

On the cliff by the lake stands the fairy-tale Castle of Bled. You can access it by stairs through amazing trees on both sides or by car from the other side but the price of the parking lot is quite expensive. In general, Bled is also expensive when it comes to food in restaurants. We don't recommend visiting the top of the castle with a stroller because of the steep path.

Other available activities in Bled and its surroundings are an adrenaline-filled descent with a summer sledge, zipline, river rafting, fishing and incredible panoramic flight with a balloon. Discover the charms of caves, Vintgar Gorge, and popular hiking spots of Ojstrica, Mala and Velika Osojnica or just let yourself be pampered in the thermal pools and don't forget to visit a Dinosaur Park with your kids.

A Few Local Tips:

  • Bled can be a pricier destination, particularly regarding restaurant meals. Consider self-catering in your chosen accommodation.

  • Bled Castle's pathway to the top is quite steep, making it unsuitable for strollers.

  • Pre-purchase tickets online for popular attractions, especially during peak season.
