Description

An action packed weekend upon Slovenia's idyllic Lake Bled and meandering Soca River, a real treat for any intrepid adventurer.

The picture perfect Lake Bled can be found within the Julian Alps in north-western Slovenia, where it adjoins the beautiful town of Bled. Long established as one of Europe's premier destinations, Lake Bled, enclosed within a lush evergreen forest, is home to one of the most stunning vistas in Europe. The idyllic region, which also includes Triglav National Park, and the Soca, or Emerald River, is well known amongst those with a keen interest, as having ideal conditions for water sports and a myriad outdoor activities. As a testament to the quality of environment, Lake Bled has played host to the World Rowing Championships in 1966, 1979, 1989 and 2011. With the luxury accommodation, the most picturesque surroundings, and the optimum conditions, embark on a 5-star adventure break that is sure to thrill and excite.

On your first full day in Slovenia, join the Emerald River Adventure, a full day of action packed adventure, that takes you hiking, swimming and white water rafting across Bled.
