Bled and Bohinj lakes & river Soca valley with private guide
We'll be discovering some of the best locations Slovenia can offer. In the Alpine area we'll start with two biggest lakes, the fairy tale Bled and the remote beauty of Bohinj. The second day a visit of the emerald river Soca is on schedule. You are free to choose any stops in between - boat trip to the lake island, castle with the breathtaking view, walking through a pristine alpine gorge with refreshing river cascades or to the majestic waterfall high in the cliff. Rewarded museum and many remains of World war I may also be of interest to many.
Note: mountain pass is closed in winter
Don't hesitate to combine any other day tour of Slovenia !
From Ljubljana we will reach Bled lake in about 3/4 hour, then Bohinj is 20 minutes away. Beside the usual musts - transfer with a traditional wooden boat to the fabulous island & castle on top of the rock with probably the most wanted view of the country - we may take a 1 hour walk into the once hidden gorge (Bled vintgar) featuring pristine alpine river. For the lunch we shall try local cuisine in a typical "gostilna" on our way to Bohinj lake. It will be to decide there which waterfall to visit (1 hour walk) or to just take a cable car onto the ski resort with a view over the lake. Instead of returning to Ljubljana you may overnight in one of the hotels/apartments there. This would make a more comfortable start of the next day, when we shall drive over the mountain pass into the river Soca valley. Following the emerald river we have several view stops to do and some walking, but also rafting/kayaking may be arranged. Beside for its nature beauties, the valley is known for remains of the I. World war.
