Incentive & teambuilding programmes
Bled’s setting amidst unspoilt countryside, its rich history and cultural heritage, as well as traditional local fare and contemporary Slovenian cuisine all make a solid base for entertaining group activities. Whether your preference is for an adrenaline rush, a mysterious legend or a farmer’s task, or you would rather get to know the secrets of one of Slovenia’s best chefs, Bled is sure to live up to your expectations with its wealth of programmes designed for groups and teams.
Stunning nature and invigorating exercise
There are almost limitless possibilities for spending an active day in the great outdoors with your options including a rowing regatta on the lake, cycling through traditional villages, hiking to the waterfall at the end of Vintgar gorge, a round of golf, a white-water quest or a visit to Bled Adventure Park. In winter, you can test your skills at telemark or old-timer skiing, enjoy sledging from a mountain pass, learn the basis of ski jumping or try biathlon at the Pokljuka World Cup venue. Whatever the season, a balloon ride over the lake is always simply unforgettable.
Historical facts and mysterious legends
Legends shrouded in mystery swirl around Bled, such as that of the beautiful goddess inhabiting the island, or the sunken bell chiming from the depths of the lake. Claims about Arnold Rikli, King Alexander Karađorđević and President Tito of Yugoslavia, prominent personalities who left their mark on the history of Bled, wait to be proven or discounted. Alternatively, you can step back in time watching a medieval performance at Bled Castle or enjoy a ride aboard a steam railway.
Traditional farms and ancient crafts
Why not visit a local farm and get to know the secrets of organic farming, cattle breeding, beekeeping, distilling, herb-gathering or cheese-making? The cultural heritage of the region is tightly linked to its rural lifestyle, and teambuilding programmes include hands-on activities as well as a chance to sample locally produced delicacies. Time-honoured crafts, such as the production of honey-bread hearts, can also be incorporated into a fun group task.
Teambuilding: sports or games?
A number of professional teambuilding agencies are on hand to guide your group through specially-designed activities to strengthen co-operation and enhance team spirit. Innovative treasure hunts, programmes comprising unusual sporting activities, competitions and races, as well as entertaining teambuilding games to get to know the town and its attractions are all available.
Bled cuisine: rustically filling or contemporarily sophisticated?
Get to know the local ingredients for a satisfying meal: buckwheat, cottage cheese, fresh mushrooms, apples, honey and wild garlic. Make your own lunch from what you have gathered in the woods and picked from farms in the area or join a culinary workshop led by a renowned chef of the new generation, learning to use innovative methods to transform a traditional dish into a modern culinary masterpiece and matching it with the most complementary noble drop.
