Bled, Slovenia and the Julian Alps

One of the most beautiful towns in Europe, Bled is situated on the stunning Lake Bled at the edge of the Julian Alps in Slovenia. There are many outdoor activities to get the blood pumping in Bled like rafting, caving, canoeing, swimming, and biking to name a few. Or, just walk, cycle or Rollerblade the lake’s six kilometer circumference and admire the scenery that has made Bled famous. Visitors can also hire a bike and head out to Vintgar Gorge for a walk through the natural canyon or explore Bled Castle perched atop the 100-meter cliff overlooking the lake. Still looking for something to do? Then catch a pletna, small wooden boat, over to the island in the middle of the lake to ring the wishing bell. No trip to Bled is complete without trying Bled cake which is a vanilla custard pastry delight.
