FAQs: Water Sports in Bled

What should I know about Water Sports Bled?

Bled — a very scenic alpine town in north-western Slovenia — is the most famous tourist destination in the country and a perfect starting-point for outdoor adventures around the mountains of the Julian Alps.

The turquoise alpine rivers, wild gorges and impressive waterfalls in this area allow many water activities: canyoning is one of the most exciting! It consists of a mix of swimming, jumping, abseiling and climbing. There are different levels of difficulty, but it’s usually a family-friendly activity that children will enjoy a lot.

Bled is easily reached from Ljubljana and the nearby major international airport (LJU). Most guides will opt to meet you in or around Bled, but if you have the chance to spend some time in the capital, you should lake it.

Why should I choose Bled for my Water Sports adventure?

Stunning scenery

From the iconic church on the island in the middle of Lake Bled to some of the country’s tallest peaks towering above Fratarica canyon, there is plenty of splendid scenery to see in this little country.

Come for the culture

When you are not out exploring the local canyons, take a look around Bled and explore this lovely lakeside village. Take in the architecture of the Romanesque Bled Castle before enjoying a kremšnita, the town’s signature vanilla and cream pastry.

Enjoy the adventure

With hundreds of canyons spreading throughout the northern Julian Alps, there are plenty of places to explore., Many are right nearby as well, so a one or two day trip can get you out into multiple canyons to see, climb and splash through as much scenery as you can.

During the spring, temperatures are quite pleasant, but get colder with more altitude. Rain is not infrequent either.
