Day 1

DAY TRIP PLAN

Morning pick up at the hotel. Our journey will take us to the Vintgar Gorge. The 1.6km long Vintgar Gorge carves its way through the vertical rocks of the Hom and Bort hills, and is graced by the Radovna with its waterfalls, pools and rapids. The path, leading over bridges and Žumer’s galleries, ends with a bridge overlooking the mighty 16m high Šum waterfall. Due to its natural beauty, Vintgar was classified as one of more important tourist sites in Slovenia, and the number of visitors increases every year. After a walk through the gorge and back, we stop at Bled. We visit the historical Bled Castle, which offers a great view of the lake as well as the town itself. Time for picnic in beautiful nature. After picnic, there will be some free time to take a ride on a pedal boat “Pletna” (supplement) to the island in the middle of the lake, where you can make a wish while ringing the church bell. Once in Bled, take time to have a cup of coffee in one of the local bars accompanied by the famous Bled cake “kremšnita” (cream cake) while enjoying the view of the lake. Return to the hotel in the late evening.
