Ljubljana and Lake Bled tour


You’ll be picked up from Trieste pier.

Leaving Trieste and entering Slovenia is an experience that awakens your senses as you enter the striking, alpine setting that is a stark contrast of scenery. First, you’ll drive to the boutique, capital city of Ljubljana. Ljubljana has the most beautiful historic center, contained within a sprawling pedestrian zone that flanks both sides of the willow-lined Ljubljanica River, with animated cafés and restaurants, magnificent Baroque buildings and bridges.

Afterward, drive to Lake Bled. Lake Bled is surrounded by high mountains, a dramatically placed 11th-century cliffside castle, and its tiny island with 99 steps leading up to the exquisite Church of the Assumption. The lake presents a fairy tale setting like no other.

After some free time, you’ll be taken back to Trieste.

Departure: by agreement from your accommodation throughout the year.

On request.

Three countries in one day (SLO, CRO, IT) - July 2017

“Spectacular scenery with 5-star personalized and attentive service!” My multigenerational family, including two toddler daughters and 70 year-old mother, loved our experience with Slovenia 4 Seasons! We serendipitously found their brochure in the lobby of our hotel, the Starhotels Savoia Excelsior Palace in Trieste. Thus began the best part of our trip, which up until then had consisted of lovely but somewhat impersonal train rides through the Swiss Alps and a self-guided (i.e. lots of walking in the hot sun, waiting in line behind hordes of other tourists, overpaying for water taxis) tour of Venice. We had the time of our lives with Slovenia 4 Seasons, with our jovial tour guide Jernej regaling us with the history and culture of Slovenia and Italy as we were driven smoothly in an air-conditioned and very comfortable minivan through the pristine countryside and perfectly preserved storybook villages of Slovenia--just about half an hour from Trieste, but so orderly and clean compared to Italy--and unspoiled due to its status as a hidden gem and also the national character of cleanliness and pride in caring for their small but self-sufficient country. On the first day, we drove up the mountains to a hilltop playground where my daughters gleefully swung on monkey bars seemingly located at the top of this new world, then back downhill through rich green forests, and around picturesque stone and stucco clad villages, each with a proud little church that hosts every villager's wedding, funeral, and a book that contains hundreds of years of ancestry records. Our tots found the bumpy cobblestone streets of Groznjan, a beautifully-preserved and refreshingly uncrowded medieval Croatian village, to be as charming as they were fun and challenging for their little feet to traverse, an entertaining obstacle course on the way to a feast of sumptuous prawns and grilled fish. We ended the day in Lipica, the site of the Lipizzaner stud farm with gorgeous white horses as well as three roly-poly ponies that the girls delighted in meeting. The next day Jernej took us to the graceful capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, where we visited the colorful and spotless and bustling city center and delicious Farmer's Market. The highlight for the girls, however, was a fantastical indoor playground--Mala Ulica--with a little kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and cafe where they were served freshly squeezed orange juice, grilled cheese, and milk. It was hard to convince them to leave, but our next stop was the most spectacular yet--the dramatic Predjama Castle, built into the side of a cliff with a soaring network of caves extending overhead and through to the other side of the mountain. Jernej introduced us to his friends at the welcoming onsite restaurant, where we dined on savory venison goulash. Our experience with Slovenia 4 Seasons could not have been better or more personalized to our needs and interests--Jernej was willing to literally drive us anywhere we wanted to explore, and stop anywhere for photo ops--and allowed us to see and do so much more, in comfort and safety, than ever would have been possible on our own. We wish we could take them with us on all of our travels--having spent time with tour guides from all over the world, their service truly stands out for their attentiveness, flexibility, creativity, and warmth. We can't wait to go back and see more with Slovenia 4 Seasons!

Andre drove us in a comfortable air conditioned large vehicle into Slovenia. We visited Lubijana and Lake Bled. We had a perfect lunch overlooking the castle on the island. Andre is so knowledgeable and really gave us an insight into the history, geography, and present day story of Slovenia. Everyone spoke perfect English. Andre was very open to whatever we wanted to do as well as his own plan. I highly recommend the tour and it will always be a special memory of our trip.

Customize your day with Andrej

We had a spectacular day seeing Lake Bled and the town of Ljubljana,and I guess if you have only one day in Slovenia this is where I would suggest you go. In our 7 hours Andrej took us to the best spots giving us history, geology , biology and many other interesting facts along the way. He also talked about Croatia and Slovenia and the many other things he offers for future trips. He definitely wetted our appetite for a return visit .

Becky and I had great time with you but I am writing to tell you your suggestions for the next 4 days really hit the spot. The next day we did not go to Split.  We met some new  friends that were going to Plitvice and they had room for 2 more. Spectacular. In Rijeka we took the bus up to the  Castle wandered around, walked down and around town before we went to Place Podrum. We had your suggested wine with great fish. IN Dubrovnik we walked the walls first. We then had a drink in a bar in the cliffs. When then took the ferry to Lokrum where I swam and we had a nice meal at the place you recommended . Today we got a guide who took us up the serpentine road the 25 turns to Njegusi where we ate ate a private house and got wonderful prosciutto , homemade wine and stronger Alcohol:) . I even bought some of the ham that I hope to take home . Thanks again Art Brown, USA
