After a leisurely breakfast, we take a stroll along the promenade to the Park Cafe where we try out the famous Bled cream cake, with tea or coffee included. The rest of the day is free for you to enjoy at leisure in the peaceful and beautiful resort of Lake Bled. A walk around the lake to take in the wonderful winter scenery is highly recommended. At 6 kilometres it can take up to a couple of hours, but there’s definitely no rush.

Here we’ll have a guided tour before returning to Bled.

With its hilltop castle and riverside location, Ljubljana is a wonderful place to visit, so we have set aside a full day for you to enjoy here.
