Bled is located in the north-western corner of Slovenia near the border of Austria and Italy, right on the edge of Triglav National Park and the Julian Alps. It’s a perfect playground for outdoor activities and adventures with a unique diversity of crystal clear rivers, lakes and canyons surrounded by lush green mountains. Bled town is a great starting point for numerous explorations of the great outdoors that are within the reach of a few minutes' drive from the town.
The Emerald River Adventure runs daily from April to October. This tour takes around 12 hours starting from Bled at 08:00 and returning back to Bled town at around 20:00. There are approximately 2,5 hours of scenic drive throughout the whole day with stops every 10-30 minutes for points of interest and activities (hiking, swimming, rafting, all optional). Throughout the day we will take you on three major scenic and rewarding hikes of moderate grade, around 30-45 minutes each.
One of the tour highlights is definitely white water rafting on the river Soča which offers a fun and scenic experience with some moderate II, III & III+ class rapids. No previous experience needed. River Soča has a very special and emerald crystal clear color and is considered one of the most beautiful rivers in the world. The rafting trip takes around 2,5 hours and you spend approximately 1,5 hours rafting down the river.
Emerald River Adventure is and should be just fun. Nothing extreme, so a short via ferrata section at the end of the second hike is totally optional and we encourage people who don’t feel comfortable with that to skip that part.
