The Bled area is surrounded by beautiful scenery and things to do from walks around the lovely Vintgar Gorge and various hills surrounding the lake to great mountain walking and mountain biking on the Pokljuka Plateau, kayaking, canyoning and rafting on the Sava River and its tributaries, as well of course as swimming and boating on Lake Bled itself. The Alpine Retreat, Zasip - Bled Chalet is in a great postion to access a extensive array of activities and leisure pursuits. Zasip is a delightful rustic alpine farming village situated on the sunny southern slope of Hom hill. France Prešeren, the greatest Slovenian poet, called Zasip the "altar of Gorenjska" because of the beautiful view you can enjoy here towards Stol Mountain and in the other direction back towards Bled. The Bled area is a great place to be based for exploring Slovenia's many ski areas - there is a small resort in the town itself but most skiers based in Bled visit the excellent resorts of Vogel, Krvavec & Kranjska Gora which are each half an hour's drive away (or there is a ski bus from Bled to Vogel / Krvavec). There is a wide range of other ski areas in Slovenia / Italy / Austria within day trip distance from the property. Please click here for a map / guide to these resorts.
