Eating Out



Events - The Planina pod Golico village fęte happens at the end of August each year.  Dancing, music, goulash, beer and homemade blueberry liquor are plentiful.  Everyone is very friendly, but beware the blueberry hangover!


Throughout the year, especially in the summer months, there's always something going on in Bled. You'll find folk dancing, classical music, exhibitions and sporting events.  The highlight is Blejska Noč, at the end of July, when there are candles floating on the lake, concerts, markets, a fęte and fireworks.  At the end of June there is a violin festival and in August a music festival.  See the Bled website for information.

Golf - Golf Bled or Golf Club Bled is the largest in Slovenia and renowned as one of Europe's most beautiful!  18 holes, par 73.  Season is Mar - Nov.


Mini-golf - behind the Park Hotel on the main street in Bled.



Fishing - A license may be required.  There are numerous fishing rivers in the area, in particular the Bohinjska.


'Wellness centre' - Very popular in Slovenia; massages, baths and beauty treatments galore!  Bled has been a spa town for 100s of years.  Bled Živa is one of many, with nice views over the lake.


In-line Skating Try Bled Rafting for skate hire; the road around the lake is prefect.  There's a big skating competition round the lake in early June!


Ice Skating - Skating is possible on Lake Bled, when it freezes in the winter.  There is also an indoor rink behind Hotel Krim, on the main street in Bled.


Scenic flights, Skydiving and Gliding - Lesce airfield is 20 mins away in the direction of Ljubljana.  Lesce ALC - call for more info


Tandem Paragliding - Jump from Vogel ski resort and cruise out over Lake Bohinj.  No experience neccessary.  Contact Pac Sports.  Agora can organise paragliding at Lake Bohinj.


Horse riding - Mosnje near Bled, among others.  Horse riding is also possible at the Lipizzaner horse stud in Lipica (along with golf and tennis).   Agora organise horse riding trips in the National Park.


Rafting and Hydrospeed - There are many tours but try Bled Rafting, Pac Sports or Alter Sports.

Kayaking and Canoeing
- Pac Sports and others can arrange days out for beginners, intermediate and advanced.  There are also courses available.


Rowing - Rowing boats can be hired at various places around the lake: near the castle or below the ski run.  There's a proper Rowing Club on Lake Bled but not sure if tourists can row here?

Caving - The Karst region offers caves galore with many (such as Postojna or Skocjan) catering for tourists.  A few tour operators run day trips including Alter Sports.


Climbing - Pac Sports can arrange days out.  There is an outdoor climbing school at Bohinj.   Agora offer rock climbing for all grades at Bohinj.


High Ropes Course - Pac Sports has a high ropes circuit at Hotel pod Voglem on the shore of Lake Bohinj.


Via ferrata - There's a via-ferrata guide book at the chalet. The best short routes are from Vršič Pass (Prisojnik Window or Hanzova Pot on Mala Mojstrovka).  If you hike up to the Staniča Hut on Triglav then Triglav or Rjavina are highly recommended routes requiring 2 days minimum return from Aljažev Dom in Vrata.



Canyoning - Raging Alpine rivers have carved out beautiful canyons throughout this area of Slovenia.  Canyon Mostnica in Triglav NP doesn't reqiure a rope and has 3m jump-offs.  We recommend you go on a guided tour though.  There are plently more technical canyons to try.   Pac Sports, Alter Sports and others run day trips.


Swimming - The mountains provide shelter from the North wind, so swimming in the lakes is possible well into Autumn (summer temps up to 24°C!)  Bathing is possible near the castle, or at Camping Bled in Zaka.  If cooling off in the lake, doesn't appeal, many hotels have pools and thermal pools or there's an indoor pool near the outdoor bathing area below the castle.


Tennis - There are tennis facilities at a few places including Hotel Ribno (near the lake), Little Zaka (near Camping Bled and the Regatta Center), Koritno (at the Bio-Fit Fitness Centre), Golf Hotel or Alp Pension.  Lessons are available.


Zorbing - Strap into a padded ball and roll yourself down a big hill!

Zorb Slovenija.
