Trip Planner: Lake Bled
Board a gondola and make a trip to the little island with a church in the middle of Lake Bled, or just walk through the pristine nature around the lake. Surrounded by mountains and forests and rich with birdlife, this glacial lake is 2.1 km (1.3 mi) long and up to 1.4 km (0.9 mi) wide. Rent a bike and cycle around the lake or play some golf. The lake is also very popular among rowers. Walk up to the medieval castle towering over the north shore for panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding landscape. Several hotels in the area feature swimming pools filled with water coming from thermal springs.
