Went on the Zipline Dolinka trip and white water rafting - both superb. Experienced lake bled in all its glory including a trip up the castle, took a rowing boat across to the church on the island walked the perimeter of the lake and up to the viewing platforms across the lake. Hired a car as the transfer to and from the airport and to get around - very economical option.

Topped off the trip on the last day with a visit to Lake Bohinj, went up in the Vogel cable car to walk around the ski area and take in the last views and mountain air before visiting Savica - climbing up by foot to the water fall before driving to the airport.
