A member of our team will drive you to the lush green Radovna Valley, amid soaring mountain peaks, to where the Radovna River has carved the 150 m-deep Vintgar Gorge. You can then walk the trail that leads along a wooden walkway through the gorge and onwards to the world-famous Bled Lake, via the lovely Katarina Church viewpoint.

Bled is a uniquely picturesque town sitting on the shores of the glacial Lake Bled and overlooked by the imposing medieval Bled Castle perched atop a rocky ridge. Traditional wooden barges called Pletna to ply their trade to a small island that is the location of the Assumption of Mary Pilgrimage Church, itself sitting on the site of a temple of Ziva, the Slavic goddess of love and fertility.

There is no better way to finish your day’s walk than with a welcome vanilla and cream kremna rezina pastry while overlooking the lake.

Author’s recommendation

Make sure you bring a packed lunch as the first food stops will be later in the day, try some fresh trout at the exit if the Vintgar Gorge. 

There is an entrance fee of 5 Euros to the Gorge (cash only)
