THE FESTIVE BEAUTY OF LAKE BLED.

The scenery of Lake Bled becomes all the more enchanting during wintertime. The flurries of tourists are long gone and snowfall is virtually guaranteed on the mountaintops. It’s a place that is as beautiful as it is peaceful – an ideal location to relax and enjoy the festive period. We have plenty of time set aside for you to do just that, along with a visit to the quaint capital of Ljubljana where Christmas festivities are in full swing. You can even explore the magical caves of Postojna. So join us in exploring a real winter wonderland, discovering the festive beauty of Lake Bled.

Day 1: London – Munich

We journey from London to Paris by Eurostar and continue by TGV to Munich where we check in to our overnight hotel.

Day 2: Munich – Villach – Lake Bled

We continue our rail journey which follows a stunning route through the Austrian Alps and across the border into Slovenia. We alight from the train at Lake Bled and are taken by coach to our hotel.

Day 3: Ljubljana

The capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, is our destination today. Its compact size makes it easy to explore and there are treasures at every turn. With its hilltop castle and riverside location, Ljubljana is a wonderful place to visit, especially when the festive fair and Christmas markets are in full swing. The public squares are alive with music concerts and entertainment. You can warm yourself with a cup of mulled wine or fragrant tea from one of the many festive stalls.

Day 4: Lake Bled

Enjoy a day at leisure. A walk around Lake Bled is highly recommended to take in the views of the island with the little Church of Maria and the traditional Pletna boats with the back drop of the mountains.

Day 5 Christmas Eve: Postojna Caves

Today we visit Postojna Caves, a magical underworld. We join a little train that winds through a web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls filled with stalactites and stalagmites. We are transferred back to the hotel this afternoon where you have free time to explore.

Day 6 Christmas Day: Lake Bled

Merry Christmas! A particular highlight of this special day is our delicious included lunch taken inside the medieval walls of Bled Castle, where you can enjoy heavenly views from more than 100 metres above the lake. We also enjoy a unique spectacle by the lake’s edge this evening, when divers perform an enactment of the Legend of the Sunken Bell before we return to our hotel.

Day 7 Boxing Day: Lake Bled – Turin

We leave our lakeside paradise and travel by coach and train to Turin for our overnight stay.

Day 8: Turin – London

We take the morning train to Paris and board Eurostar for our return to London.
