Hiking in Bled: Top Outdoor Adventures Awaiting You


(19 reviews)

Land of churches, castles and a magnetic lake

The Slovenian village of Bled is located in the Julian Alps, very close to the Austrian border and right next to the Triglav National Park, the most important protected area in Slovenia. Although its landscape and hiking options are really beautiful, Bled’s main attraction is the glacial lake at the foot of the Julian Alps. Its crystal clear waters are surrounded by forests that lead to ancient castles and churches. Get lost on these trails, Bled is a magically perfect place to do so.

FAQs: Hiking in Slovenia

Why should I choose Slovenia for my Hiking adventure?

The island

In the heart of Lake Bled there is a small island with a church. You can get there by boat. It is located more than half a kilometer from the shore. You can visit the area with a motor boat or, if you like water sports, rent a rowing boat.

Get started in other sports

Bled is the perfect place to do a mountaineering route along the beautiful mountains of the Julian Alps. It also offers the possibility of trying other sports such as cycling, canyoning or rafting.

Its surroundings

The surroundings of Bled are also impressive. Do not miss the hermitage of Santa Catalina or the Vintgar Gorge, a gigantic ravine that stretches 1,5 km along the Radovna River. You can walk through its large wooden walkways that lead to rapids and waterfalls.

When is the best time to travel to Slovenia for Hiking?

The presence of the Julian Alps enables a milder climate, since they protect the area from the cold north winds. Due to its nice weather conditions, Bled is a perfect location to visit both in summer and winter.

What people are saying about Hiking | Bled



Dean was prompt and super knowledgeable about the area we were going to. He guided us safely to Slemenova Spica to enjoy the Julian Alps. As two girls from the city, we don't have much hiking experience, and he was patient and super helpful. We enjoyed our trip so much and it has been the highlight of our Slovenia trip. Thanks once again, Dean, for taking us on this experience!



Our guide was Mitja Drinavec (not Matevz Vukotic), he was very nice and responsible during the entire trip. Thank you for the great experience.



Dean is an excellent guide. He's friendly and conscientious and throughout or trip was focused on getting us to achieve our hiking goals while being aware of our abilities and experience. We chose a relatively tough hike (8hrs, 1,700m elevation gain) but Dean made sure we completed it safely and at a good pace. He also took photos throughout so we could concentrate on the hiking and shared them with us later. He was also good company on the hike. I would thoroughly recommend his services.



I had Uroš Grilj as a guide for a 7-day hike and I recommend him wholeheartedly. He is highly skilled and competent. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, for which I had no previous experience and which were nonetheless perfectly comfortable and fun, entirely thanks to him. He constantly adapted the routes to my level and the weather conditions, checked in on me and discussed the options for the next days with me. He is also a very nice person and it was a pleasure to talk to and learn from him. Thank you very much, Uroš!



Stunning hike up Debela Pec with our guide Timotei from Altitude Activities. Everything was exactly as we hoped - super kind and friendly guide, beautiful scenery, fun hiking in the snow and a great traditional Slovenian lunch at the hut on the way down. Great experience!
