Alpine Region Day Trip from Ljubljana
From US$66.03
Explore Slovenia’s vast natural beauty on this Alpine day trip departing from Ljubljana. Join a small group and an expert guide and set off for the Alps, Lake Bled and Triglav National Park. Stroll Škofja Loka, a quaint old town in the countryside and many other cultural and natural points of interest. Group size is limited to eight people to ensure an intimate and personalized experience.
What to Expect
Your adventure begins with a convenient pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel or other meeting point. After a brief introduction with your guide and fellow travelers, settle in to your comfortable minivan and set off for the journey to your first point of interest. Admire the views from your window as you travel into Slovenia’s green hillsides.

First up: Lake Bled, an emerald lake surrounded by dramatic mountains. After a brief stroll, board an apletna (a Slovenian wooden boat) and journey to the tiny island in the center of the lake—Solvenian’s only island. Explore the island as your guide reveals its fascinating and quirky history, while pausing for photos along the way.

After, it’s a quick drive to the Vintgar Gorge, a must see. This stunning canyon is known for its grand walls that rise 330 feet (100 meters) into the sky. Nearby you’ll discover Šum, a beautiful waterfall that drops 85 feet (26 meters). Enjoy lunch on your own (additional expense) before heading to Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest glacial lake. Take advantage of free time to rent a canoe (own expense) or to swim in the lake’s cerulean waters.

Before the tour winds to a close, stop at the town of Škofja Loka, which has a fairytale castle and the oldest bridge in Central Europe. Take some time to explore the quaint town and take some photos as the sun begins to set. You tour ends back at the starting point.

Lovely trip but I don’t think it was safe.

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that our guide/driver (Nadja) was a woman. Hooray, I thought we will have a comfortable ride in the minibus with 8 of us. Wrong! She drove too fast and the journey was very stop/start and I felt quite...More

Getting in the van might be challenging but I think if she takes the front seat it might be fine, as long as there’s some space in the van for the three wheeled walker. Of all tours I’ve been on, this would be best suited... More
