Meet your group and Tour Manager at the Grand Hotel Toplice in Bled, the hotel is excellently situated by the lakeside. Encompassed by the Julian Alps, the serene emerald-green waters and mountain surrounds make this a delightfully scenic retreat.
On Day 2, we begin our adventure with a traditional pletna boat ride across the shimmering waters of Lake Bled to Bled Island, a diminutive islet topped by dense woodland and a 12th century church. On arrival we enjoy a short tour of the island, followed by free time to explore.
After returning to the mainland, we visit Bled Castle, an incredible medieval fortress that stands on a rocky outcrop overlooking the lake. We discover the castle, including its fascinating museum dedicated to the region's history, on a guided tour, before returning to our hotel.
