Activities & Day Tours

Emerald River Adventure

Emerald River Adventure

The Emerald River Adventure is one of the most popular tours in Bled. There's 2.5 hour scenic drive with stops every 10-30 minutes for points of interests and activities (hiking, swimming, rafting, all optional). At the end there is a 1h car train ride on one of the most scenic railway lines in Europe.

There are 3 major and very scenic hikes of moderate grade involved throughout the day, around 30-45 minutes each. Any or all of these hikes can be skipped and guests can wait by the mini-van which is always parked on a scenic spot.

Bled certainly lives up to its winning reputation with its quaint picture-postcard town, emerald-green lake and medieval castle all surrounded by the Julian Alps. With all of this beauty there is no wonder this is a popular spot luring all walks of life from backpackers to honeymooners by the droves in the summer to both relax and take in the beauty, or to head out and explore the great outdoors.
