Water, air and sun baths with Arnold Rikli

Water is, of course, beneficial, but more so is air and even more is sunlight.

Already in the second half of the 19th century, the Swiss healer recognised the advantages of air baths, clean water, sun rays and a proper diet. Exercising in nature restores health and strengthens the spirit. Bled is a true paradise for this kind of experience. We invite you to spend the day with Arnold Rikli!

The first stop of our therapeutic path is the Triglavska roža Infocenter, where we will be greeted by our personal assistant on the trail, Arnold Rikli. There we will fill our bottles with fresh drinking water and download the app. Together with Rikli we will head toward the weather house in the Spa Park, from there past his villa on a picturesque path to Bled Castle, where we will visit his room. Across Višce, a small hill above Bled, we will head toward the Garden of Tastes. Experience the spirit of the herb labyrinth and enjoy preparing Rikli’s meal. With a genuine contact with the earth you will restore your energy and try the traditional barefoot walk on dew. There, a traditional horse-drawn carriage will wait for us and take us for a romantic ride to the Živa wellness centre. After a long day, we will take a Rikli's bath or enjoy Rikli's massage and step into the evening with a magnificent dinner at the Julijana restaurant. The restaurant boasts a Michelin's dish, and we will enjoy a true culinary experience. And last but not least, everybody will receive Rikli's gift at the end of the day!



The experience takes place every Wednesday all your round and you need to apply by Monday by 12:00 writing to

Price: €500/person (2–4 persons), €450/person (5–12 persons).
