“Beautiful area”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The area has so much to offer from hiking, skiing, swimming, etc. The water is very clean and blue. We took a boat ride to the island in the middle with a church. I couldn't stop taking pictures. What a lovely way to end our tour and relax a little too.

“Don't Leave Solvenia w/o Seeing Lake Bled”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Solvenia is a great tourist attraction in general but Lake Bled stands out as exceptional. The Lake is straight out of a wonder picture book...castle on top of cliff at the back of the lake, story book island with old church reachable by gondola type boat, plus cream cakes! Who could ask for anything more. Worth two nights. Walking around the lake takes about 90 minutes or you could rent a bike. And bring your swimsuit as there's a swim beach.

“Best View: Short Hike Away”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Lake Bled picturesque with the surrounding mountains, castle, and small island housing a church. We enjoyed a short hike to two different viewpoints that provided wonderful views of the lake, castle, and the island in the centre on Mount Osojnica.

The paths are well marked (trail 6 on any tourist map). We started our hike from the Camping Resort and ended it at the exit which is closer to Villa Bled. I preferred this route because the trail on the west (closer to the campground) was very dry and had fallen leaves that could potentially be quite slippery; whereas on the east (closer to Villa Bled) the trail had many stairs and roots that helped provide a safer decline from the mountain. We enjoyed both view points and would highly recommend hiking one of the peaks hills surrounding lake Bled for fabulous views of the lake, castle, and backdrop of mountains. The took 40 minutes to 1hr total and was well worth it. I found this link which describes a few options afterwards: http://www.bled.si/en/what-to-see/natural-sights/hills-around-the-lake

“A gorgeous lake”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Frankly, I had never heard of Lake Bled until our tour took us there and what a delightful surprise. It is of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen. We were there on a stunning day so I know that helped but the water and views are beyond compare. Worth the effort if in the vicinity.

“A dream”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

I was wanting to experience Lake Bled for over a decade when a friend of mine went and described it as 'heaven on earth'. I would agree. We were lucky to be there on a gorgeous hot day. The water is so clear, so clean, so blue. Surrounded by hills and a castle, in the middle an island with a church.
It is a dream.
We rented a paddle boat and went to the church. The water looked so inviting we jumped in and swam around. I couldn't wipe the smile from my face. It was bliss. An incredible day. A dream come true.
