Around Slovenia in a Campervan or Motorhome (10 days)
Day 1-2 - Breakfast in the capital’s old town and lunch at Lake Bled
Drive: Ljubljana - Bled (40min)
Stay: 2x Camp Bled
The picturesque image of the centre of Ljubljana has been marked by different historical periods and most notably by the works of the world-famous architect Jože Plečnik. Take a walk through the Ljubljana Old Town, ascend to the castle and have some coffee before you start your road trip.
A picture perfect location, this is even better than you could have ever imagined. Shaped like a teardrop, the crystal clear blue-green lake has an island right in the middle topped with a church. Check out the views from the cliff top castle or take a boat ride to see the view from a different perspective.
Standing 100m above the lake the castle has not only a good viewpoint of the lake but also a great place to visit in its own right. Arranged as a museum, the castle holds a large collection of weapons and armoury.
In the immediate vicinity of Lake Bohinj, the Gorge has some incredible waterfalls and fantastic scenery. In theory, the walk should only be around half an hour, but if you stop to admire the views you could be there all day.
Day 3 - Discover Bohinj and relax
Drive: Bled - Bohinj (30min)
Stay: Camping Ukanc
No apology for having two lakes as Lake Bohinj is just as beautiful and great for swimming. There are some good walks and lots of activities to try if you are feeling energetic. If not, take the cable car to the top of Mount Vogel and walk along the gorge to see the Savica Falls.
Kayak or canoe trip
Kayaking and canoeing are the most popular water activities in Slovenia, especially in Bohinj. Exploring the lake and Sava Bohinjka river is pure joy and unforgettable experience for beginners and intermediate kayakers.
