Join UIMLA certified mountain guide Dean for this delightful 1+ day hiking trip around the stunning lake Bled and beneath the picturesque Julian Alps of Slovenia!
Discover the stunning picturesque beauty of Bled and Lake Bled
Swim in the lake and visit the island and ring its bell for luck
Visit the medieval Bled Castle situated on a hill over looking the lake
Lake Bled set beneath the Julian Alps is prized by Slovenians for its stunning natural beauty.
The area including the town of Bled is a top Slovenian tourist destination. During the winter with ample snow there are many ski touring and snowshoeing options.
Truly a picturesque setting, the lake has a small island in the middle, a castle on a hill that overlooks the lake and then the Julian Alps in the backround.
There are plenty of trails weaving amongst the forests and mountains for the avid hiker and there is more than enough for multiple days if that is your preference.
On this 1+day of hiking you can explore the lakeside and take a dip, it reaches 25 degrees during the summer. In the winter it freezes over and we enjoy some ice skating!
You can visit the impressive medieval castle on the hill that overlooks the lake and has a drawbridge and moat surrounding it.
You can take a traditional flat-bottomed wooden boat and arrive at the lake’s island to ring the bell for good luck.
There are endless breathtaking vistas to enjoy that even the best painter could not recreate.
If your excited to visit Bled and get hiking around this wonderful landscape then sign up now and don’t miss out on this natural Slovenian beauty!
If you’d like to get up higher into the Julian Alps and also Triglav National Park then sign up to this great 1-4 days of hiking in the nature! Alternatively, if you like the cold then consider this half-day of snowshoeing in winter to experience the beauty that snow brings to Triglav National Park

Dean was very attentive to all. Easy to talk to and informative
Dean was very helpful and responsive to our enquiries. He was enthusiastic and devoted to show the prettiest side of Tre Cime to us. Although we were a bit behind, Dean was patient to wait for us and cater to our speed. 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.
Dean was simply wonderful ! Sure footed and quick to notice when we needed a break. Conversation was easy and he was very pleasant and professional. We had a fantastic time and would absolutely hike with Dean again. What an enjoyable experience!!!

We were looking for a hike suitable for 4 adults with reasonable experience in hiking.Dean not only crafted a 5 day activity for us but was also able to adjust for routes to fit our needs during the hike itself. Dean proved to be a great guide with both knowledge and an amazing attitude and was simply so much fun to be with, Dean also went \'the extra mile\' for us taking some of us to special activities which we did not plan for. If you are looking for hiking in Slovenia and getting an experience of a life time - I would highly recommend Dean. 5 starts all the way (And if there 6 he would get them as well :) ) Dean, thank you so much !
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!
He guided us to really fun hiking depending on the weather ,our skill and preference.We had a great time.
Dean is a super experienced guide, he is very qualified to do all sorts of mountineering too if you are interested to try. I had a good time learning how to do snow shoeing and he is very patient in teaching me and assessing my abilities to suggest different routes which is suitable for my build and stamina. It was great and safe to have him as a guide because he knows the terrain well and that is good to know.
