Choose exactly how much you would like to pack in one day and opt for the activities that suit you best. On this day trip, you will be able to see all the must-do attractions in Slovenia while saving time and money. It’s a full day, packed with different sights, from caves and castles to mountains, lakes, and gorges considered the best in Slovenia.

We will start the day underground in Postojna Cave, the most visited cave in Slovenia, and hop on the subterranean train that will take us deep into the limestone fairy tale, full of towering dripstones and magnificent halls. Learn about the cave and its history on a walking tour (1.5 km /0.9 mi) that passes through the most beautiful parts of the cave system, which is in its entirety almost 25 km / 15.5 mi long.

After coming back to the surface, we will go for a short ride and stop by Predjama Castle, the largest cave-castle in the world. Some 800 years ago, someone came up with the idea to start building a structure at the mouth of the cave, which eventually grew into a Renaissance castle that was used by law-defying individuals as well as noble families and became one of the most unique castles you can see in Slovenia. You can decide to take an audio-guided tour inside the castle (200+ steps) or take some free time for lunch or rest and enjoy the view of the castle from the outside.

Leaving the Karst region behind, we will head back towards the north and the Alps into Triglav National Park where we will continue straight to Bled. We will take you into the lakeside resort town, where you can enjoy the numerous restaurants and shops or take a walk around the lake (6 km /3.7 mi – 2 hrs).

Our next stop will be the docking platform for the traditional “pletna” rowboats, which you can take to get to Bled Island and explore on your own. Enjoy the time on the lake with beautiful mountain vistas and a great view of both the island and the castle. Besides the Church of the Assumption of Mary and the wishing bell inside, there is a cafe and a souvenir shop, or you can choose to walk around the island on a small path.

Our final stop of the day will be at Bled Castle, which sits atop a 100-metre cliff, offering some of the best views of the lake. The 1000-year-old castle is now home to a small museum exhibition about the history of the area, souvenir shops and a restaurant, which offers the famous “Kremšnita” cream cakes.

This day trip covers a lot, so if you choose to join all of the activities, make sure you bring snacks, as there will not be a lot of time to stop for lunch. If you opt-out of any of the stops, your guide will make sure to communicate meeting points and times and will give you plenty of options for what you can do on your own. In the summertime, Lake Bled is a popular choice for swimming, rowing or paddle-boarding, with some great hiking spots, restaurants and shops too.

We give you the opportunity to spend the day exactly the way you want to and return to Ljubljana in the evening feeling like you’ve truly experienced Slovenia.
