Board a gondola and make a trip to the little island with a church in the middle of Lake Bled, or just walk through the pristine nature around the lake. Surrounded by mountains and forests and rich with birdlife, this glacial lake is 2.1 km (1.3 mi) long and up to 1.4 km (0.9 mi) wide. Rent a bike and cycle around the lake or play some golf. The lake is also very popular among rowers. Walk up to the medieval castle towering over the north shore for panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding landscape. Several hotels in the area feature swimming pools filled with water coming from thermal springs.

  • Absolutely stunning. Had the best day renting a SUP and spending time in this beautiful blue water. You can’t rent a SUP or paddle boat at the dock near the public beach park for 10 euros. Wish we would have spent a few more days here.
  • Nice and clean waters in this lake. Captivating Views of this lake and of the surroundings on both sides of this lake. Surrounded by trees gives eye-catching views with pleasant weather conditions. Better arrangements near the lake for visitors recreation.
  • WoW Slovenia! What an amazing place to spend the day; clean water. Paddle surf, boat renting. Amazing views: castle, church in an island, forest and mountains! Family friendly, friends friendly. Restaurants. Parking. YOU MUST visit it. Price: free!
  • I lived in Slovenia for almost 24 years and never visited lake Bled. I must say that was a huge mistake. May 2018 was month to finally visit it and I must say that view is simply astonishing. From shore of lake Bled a ride on a rowboat took about 20 min (depending from which side you hop on), in this time you can enjoy gorgeous view of island and church on it as well as view of beautiful surroundings around the lake. On island itself you can refresh yourself with cold drink or ice-cream, climb up the church tower and have a view of a shore and beauties that Bled holds. If Slovenia is within your goals to visit then I highly recommend visiting lake Bled.
  • The best thing to do here is go swimming... The island is great and all but your pictures will never be as good as the ones you can buy.. Rent a boat if you have time and swim at the island or one of the beaches. Parking is painful..the crowds get big early
