Have you ever wondered how insanely beautiful Lake Bled must look from above? Wonder no more. Here’s your chance to find out in the best possible way – by hot-air balloon!
As hot-air balloons rely solely on the wind, it’s difficult to predict exactly where our adventure in the sky will begin, so a take-off point will be arranged a day or two in advance. But don’t worry, although these change daily, we have plenty of options to make sure you don’t miss out on the main highlights.
Arriving at our take-off zone, you can also take part in the balloon preparations. After approximately 20 minutes, everything is set and we’re off. Our flight path will take us over the wonderful Bled Castle perched proudly on top of its glorious cliff. The sight of stunning Lake Bled is memorizing, so get ready to be amazed. We then drift on towards the town of Bled and neighbouring towns of Lesce and Radovljica. As we float around softly, the views of our surroundings take us into a world that can only be described as magical. Triglav National Park is stretched out in front of us and the majestic Julian and Karavanke Alps rise up in the background like giant reminders of nature’s powerful splendour. The Sava river Valley with its tiny villages only adds to the scenic flight, as the lush forests of Jelovica Plateau greet us with their peaceful presence.
After about an hour, the pilot lands the balloon safely and the ground crew begins packing our transport vehicle away. This is followed by a traditional Balloon Ceremony with a glass of premium Slovene sparkling wine. Like in the days of old, when only a select few could travel by hot-air balloon, you will be awarded a Certificate of an Honourable Baroness or Baron, before being taken back to Bled for a traditional kremšnita cream cake and coffee.
