About
Discover the magic of the lake that attracts travellers from near and far. The current unique shape of the year did not emerge coincidentally. A tectonic hole made by the Bohinj glacier through the years, was once at the location of the present lake. Its path was obstructed by a huge rock which was so persistently scraped that the only thing that remained was the present island. The ice melted and the basin was filled with water, thus Lake Bled emerged, which is in some places up to 30 metres deep and quite popular amongst divers. 19 species of fish live in the lake, including carp, sheatfish and lake trout. Ducks and swans as well as diverse plants also swim and thrive on its surface.

A fairytale
Sep 2021
Unless somebody hit your car or you tripped and sprained your ankle there is no way that you could not be impressed by the natural and architectural beauty of this small gem.

It's stunning.

It's a fairytale come to life.

Go see it. Stop reading this and go see it.

Bled You'll be glad you came!
Aug 2021
Great place, lovely setting, lots of local flavor, and tons to do and see. A short drive away or arrange for a pickup will bring you to ballooning and parasailing.

6 kilometres - easy and beautiful
Aug 2021
The fine asphalt path round Lake Bled makes it easy for anyone to enjoy the 6 kilometres walk. You can ‘do’ the lake walking, jogging, biking and on e-scooters - or in a wheelchair if necessary.

All the way you can enjoy the views to a white church (The Church of Mary the Queen) on an island in the middle of the lake. And to tell you the truth - it’s impossible not to take several photos in that direction.

It’s possible to take a swim in the turquoise waters - or rent a boat - or jump on a small fun train that’ll do the job for you.

You don’t have to bring water. There are a few taps with clean drinking water along the path.

If you come by car you can park in front of the railway station and take a narrow path and some stairs down to the lake.

Arrive early
Aug 2021
Beautiful lake no doubt all year round, and definitely with a lot to offer at least in the summer. You can: hike above the lake, walk around the lake, kayak/SUP/boat on the lake, swim in the lake, eat/drink at one of the lakefront cafes/restos, camp by the lake...I'm probably missing a few things.

A few tips:
1) Arrive at the lake early, at least on weekends in the summer, if you want to find parking anywhere near the lake. (Also, bring Euro coins for all the paid parking).
2) Hike early if you want to avoid people.
3) Rent bikes early in the day, as apparently shops close at lunchtime (around noon or one), close early altogether (an employee of one shop said they were closing soon, for the day, and it was before 1pm on a Saturday in August...what?), or they rent all their bikes quickly.
4) Basically, start your day in Bled early if you want to maximize your fun and minimize your hassle.

Paddleboarding to the island as alternative for the boat trips
Aug 2021 • Family
Lake Bled is a beautiful place to be on a sunny day. A nice park surrounds it. Swimming can unfortunately only be done at the official swimming spot (1 entrance fees), but a nice alternative is to hire a boat or better a paddle board to go to the island in the middle of the lake. No experience required, 20 min one way and from the island you can swim.

Beautiful, scenery, good walks, family and dog friendly
Jul 2021
What a place! Gorgeous, easy walks around the lake or up into the hills ….the lake is so clear, you can swim or rent a boat to the Island In the middle….quite busy on a summer day, be sure to be ready to search for a parking space although to be fair the many hotels also let you use their car park for 10 Euros per day…h

Check out the photos. Must do.
