Hire a boat!

Great value to hire a boat to row to the island yourself. Watch out for the guys hiring out the boats, as they may try trick you into paying more. We wanted the boat for two hours... read more

Great value to hire a boat to row to the island yourself. Watch out for the guys hiring out the boats, as they may try trick you into paying more. We wanted the boat for two hours and he gave it to us for a certain price then wanted more for the second hour when we returned (stating that we... More

A small lake with a castle perched on its banks, a small island, against a backdrop of snowcapped Julian alps, this is a magic place. It is well worth a visit of a few days so as to enjoy it and surrounding attractions.

A very nice & quiet place to relax. The scenery from the castle on the mountain is magnificant. If you got time, take a boat trip to the castle in the middle of the lake. This place is truely a heaven on earth.

Significantly more developed than anticipated (I guess all photos are shot from the side with extensive building!) Even so, a beautiful lake with a fairytale-like castle perched on the cliff overlooking it. We rowed to the centre island (great fun in itself although not too much to do once there). We also hired bicycles are cycled down to Vintgar Gorge... More

Think of every word that resembles a fairytale destination. Enchanting, magical, breathtaking, magnificent might come to mind - now picture that as a glimpse of Lake Bled until you arrive in spectacular Slovenia. Lake Bled is one of those places that's so perfect words can hardly do it justice. To give some background, there's an island in the middle of... More

is that Bohinjsko Jezero ( Lake Bohinj ) is more beautiful than Lake Bled. Let's compare : * Lake Bled - you can have a walk on a paved path, you can hire a boat, look at the image of the church reflected on the lake water, all the facilities you might need are at a walking distance; * Lake...

You can walk completely around the lake -- there is a path the whole way -- about 6 km long. There is a beautiful island with a church on it. Rent a boat and row yourself out there or hire a boat to motor or row you to the island.

One of the most beautiful places i have ever been. Couldn't stop taking photos. Walked round the lake and the take in the sights from every angle. Every photo i took looks like a postcard. Will not disappoint

Before touring, we just checked lot of images. Everything matches with it. It was actually more than our expectations. Cheapest option in April. Try to visit more view points, ask the hotel or hostel receptions about best view points.
