Pack light and make sure to bring bathing suits and towels if you're planning on swimming. Bring cash with you too, as some of the activities are cash only.
The lake will be busier during the summer months, so be prepared to wait a bit for a bit for boat rentals during particularly crowded times.
Although you can explore Lake Bled year-round, this itinerary is probably best for families visiting the area outside of the snowy season. That way, you can fully enjoy all of the activities that Lake Bled has to offer without winter weather getting in the way!
If you're looking to save a bit of money on this adventure, you can forgo buying tickets at the church and castle and simply enjoy their beauty from the outside!
Thinking of visiting Slovenia with kids? Here’s the perfect day-long itinerary for families who are planning Lake Bled holidays. You’ll begin the day by renting bikes to take out on the 6 km (about 3.7 miles) loop along the water. After riding for a bit, make a pit stop to rent a rowboat and paddle over to the church on Bled Island. Next, continue biking along the lake until you reach the Castle Bathing Area, where you’ll stop for a quick dip in the water if weather permits. After your swim, don’t forget to go to Vila Preseren for a slice of Bled’s famous cream cake! Finally, it’s time for your last destination – Bled Castle. Admire the castle from below, or hike to the top and explore the castle grounds with your kids. After a fun-filled day, return your bikes and get some well-deserved rest after exploring all that Lake Bled has to offer!
