Pedallin’ along charming lakeside paths, through the valleys of the astonishing Julian Alps and around characterful towns, with plenty of time for activities by the lake, this trip has something to suit everyone in your family – adventure, culture and plenty of laughs!
Your base is the gorgeous town of Bled, a destination bursting with fun-filled activities, providing plenty of gentle routes that will enable you to take in all that the area has to offer. The centre based trip gives you the flexibility to take a break from your cycling and enjoy the lake’s variety of offerings.
This family adventure is all about discovering the magical Bled area, so your daily rides will take you along routes with awe-inspiring sights. You’ll discover plenty of fascinating history, with a trip to the iconic Bled Castle, perched on a cliff overlooking the lake, as well as taking a traditional Pletna boat over the Bled Island – don’t forget to make a wish by ringing the church bell! You’ll enjoy well-deserved sweet treats during your rides, especially the famous Bled Cream Cake.
If you’re into nature, you’ll love the tranquil forest and valleys, and might even get splashed as you visit the gorges and waterfalls. An exciting cable car ride will take you up the astonishing Mount Vogel, where you’ll be able to get some great family snaps!
