Emerald River Adventure™ departs at designated time and it’s recommended to be at meeting point no earlier than 5 minutes before departure and no later than exact departure time.
(TIP for guests staying in LJUBLJANA: Catch a bus leaving at exactly 7:00am from Ljubljana main bus station and we’ll pick you up at Bled main bus station at 8:19am. After the tour we’ll drive you back to Bled station to catch a bus for Ljubljana leaving at 8.30pm. You can buy tickets on the bus, each way costs around 6 EUR. You’re welcome to store your luggage in our vans or office while you’re on adventure free of charge.)
Brief route plan of our original Emerald River Adventure™ is a mini-van day trip from Bled all around Triglav National Park and right into the heart of the Julian Alps.
There’s approximately 2,5 hours of scenic drive throughout the whole day with stops every 10-30 minutes for points of interests and activities (hiking, swimming, rafting, all optional).
There are 3 major and very scenic & rewarding hikes of moderate grade involved throughout the day, around 30-45 minutes each.
Any or all of these hikes can by skipped by request of individual guests who can wait by the mini-van which is always parked on a scenic spot.
Emerald River Adventure™ is and should be just fun. Nothing extreme, so a short via ferrata section at the end of the 2nd. hike is totally optional and we encourage people who don’t feel comfortable with that to skip that part.
Major landmarks you pass by on our original Emerald River Adventure™ day tour are Lake Bled, Karavanke Mountain Range, Kranjska Gora, Jasna Lake, Russian Chapel, Prisank Mountain Window, Vrsic Mountain Pass, Ajdovska Deklica, Soca River Source, Soca River, Velika Korita Soce, Bovec, Kobarid, Boka Waterfall, Kozjak Waterfall, Most na Soci, Bohinj Lake.
*Car-train experience that we usually incorporate into original Emerald River Adventure™ operates from last Saturday in April till last Sunday in September every year. Outside this dates and sometimes on a busy summer season days or on any other unpredictable situations beyond our control we choose alternative route via scenic Sorica pass.
*We also choose alternative route via scenic Predil pass on any days that road conditions, special events or other situations beyond our control do not allow safe drive via Vršič pass.
