Itinerary help Lake Behind / Lake Bled

Hi

We are 2 families planning to visit Slovenia in July. We are planning a 6 night stay either at Lake Bohinj or Lake Bled.

We love scenic spots and nature. We plan to rent a car and stay in one of these places and make day trips to different places. Is this a good option or is it better to move base to another place after few nights in one place.

Also appreciate recommended places to visit during our stay.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thank you :)

Hello!

Well it's better to stay in Lake Bled than in Bohinj because it's much prettier and have got lots to do around. You could even do glamping for a night in Camping Bled. Bohinj can be done as a day trip, and you can even go to Soca valley from Bled if you are interested in doing Adventure sports. However, Ljubljana as a base is better because it's in centre and most places are closer like Piran, Maribor than they would be from Lake Bled.

Lake Bled being prettier then Lake Bohinj ... well each eyes see differently. However, from the natural point of the view, Lake Bohinj must be prettier then Lake Bled. They are both close to each other so it is more important which accommodation you will like. As a base camp to other locations in Slovenia, those 20-30 minutes extra drive does not count much. And I do agree with Mamte24 that Ljubljana is a much better base camp. And if you are looking for a more natural setting, then you will find those around Škofja Loka and Cerknica; both are close to the highway and Ljubljana.

Lake Bled prettier than Lake Bohinj? Most definitely not, and particularly not in summer when Bled is swarming with tourists and traffic jams. Bohinj gets busy too, but it's infinitely more beautiful and the crowds are somewhat more dispersed.

Both are lovely but Lake Bohinj is definitely prettier than Lake Bled in my opinion, not commercialized, nice for those who enjoy nature.
