Day 1: ARRIVAL IN LAKE BLED 4* hotel (voted best overall hotel in 2014 by our guests).
Bled is a world famous town on the shore of a beautiful glacial lake. Defined by its distinctive island church and towering alpine mountain backdrop, all guarded by the imposing clifftop castle, Bled is one of Slovenia’s most popular tourist attractions. Visit the island church and marvel at the ornate golden altar and ring the church bell and make a wish, it might come true.

TOUR A: BLED – SIGHTSEEING (15 km).
A leisurely day around Lake Bled for your first day. Cycle around the lake and up to the castle, then hire a rowing boat or be rowed out in style in a traditional Pletna boat, to the island church. For the best photos and views of the lake, castle and Karawanke range, head up to Osojnica.

Radovljica TownTOUR B: BLED – BODEŠCE – KROPA – RADOVLJICA - BLED (34 km).
As the sunlight floods over Lake Bled, you'll be cycling 750 m up to the Jelovica High Plateau for a lovely view into the Triglav National Park. You can stop at Slovenia's foremost blacksmith town, Kropa and visit the iron forging museum. You can even learn how to make your own nail. After this it is heading off to the beautifully preserved old town of Radovljica with its interesting beekeeping museum and even better - nice ice cream shop...

TOUR C: BLED – BEGUNJE – BLED (41 km).
Today you'll head out to the home of Slavko Avsenik, a legendary Slovenian Folk musician, in the sunny village of Begunje. Have lunch at his restaurant, Avsenik Gostilna. After lunch you can visit the museum of hostages and the ruins of
Kamen Castle. In the afternoon you will pass Brezje Basilica, an important religious site and pilgrimage destination of many Slovene people.

TOUR D: BLED – GORJE (17 km).
Today's trip will take you to the beautiful Vintgar Gorge, carved 150m deep into the mountains by the Radovna River and ending with the Sum Waterfall. Then it's on to the less-visited Pokljuka Gorge, carved 10.000 years ago at the eastern edge of the plateau. Here you can leave your bike and take a stroll through ancient woods and a fossilized ravine left behind by the retreating glacier.

Church in BohinjTOUR E: BLED – BOHINJ (47 km).
After a car transfer to the top of Pokljuka high plateau, you will cycle back down into the Bohinj Valley through alpine villages and past the unique Slovene hayracks until reaching Lake Bohinj, a true gem in the heart of this alpine valley. Cycle around the lake to Savica Waterfall, and then take the cable car up to Vogel Mountain for a spectacular view of shimmering alpine scenery.

TOUR F: BLED – KRMA VALLEY (37 km).
First you cycle through the Radovna valley, between two great plateaus to the foot of Mount Triglav. Here you can have lunch in the shadow of this mighty mountain before continuing on through a valley of peaceful forest littered with WW2 monuments and traditional farmhouses, one of which has been adapted into a museum that was even visited by Prince Charles.

Day 8: DEPARTURE FROM LAKE BLED.
