**Lake Bled and Bled Castle Tour: this was a very low key excursion, there and back in about four hours. We booked a tour on Viator. It’s famous for its beauty – and it is pretty, a small natural lake with an island chapel and a castle on the highest peak. Compared to the scale of the Alps, there’s very little that’s exciting here, it feels a bit miniaturized, but if you have the time – sure. In the summer, you can swim. In the winter, crowds were very low. 

I see this often on cruise line day trip itineraries – not worth it in my opinion, given the distance from the sea.

Ski note: the local hill is very small and I suspect rarely has enough snow to open.
