Make your way to Lake Bled, a charming resort in the Slovenian Alps that offers stunning views of snow-capped mountains and a picturesque setting. If you arrive early enough, we’ll start off this adventure break by night sledding, one of the most thrilling ways to experience winter.
Overnight stay in Bled
The Pokljuka Plateau just above Lake Bled offers a gateway to the Triglav National Park. Its pine forests make for some beautiful scenery, and the area is a great starting point for winter hikes up higher peaks of the Julian Alps as well as easier trails around the plateau. Your guide will adjust the hike to the weather conditions and your capabilities, whether you are an expert hiker or a novice. You might be able to even hike to an iconic Triglav viewpoint.

Depending on the weather, you can opt for the incredible dog-sledding experience in the afternoon.
