Slovenia is an outdoorsman’s dream come true. It’s a country that’s far more rural than it is urban. Rolling green hills, lakes that ripple and flow from horizon to horizon, and snow-capped mountains all make for one of the world’s most gorgeous natural landscapes.

Who could resist glamping in Bled out in such an incredible wilderness? 

And, if you go with glamping in Bled rather than traditional camping, you get all the views, all the fresh air, all the joys of relaxation with none of the stress and hard work of traditional camping!

Let’s take a look at the best glam caping sites in Lake Bled.

Glamping in Bled

Wondering what glamping in Bled is? Let’s answer this question first.

The word glamping (or glam camping) is a mix of ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’. Glam camping! It’s a relatively new and trendy way of enjoying the great outdoors for people with no experience at camping whatsoever.

Glamping means having a tent, camper or cabin and being out in the wilderness, except your home is massive, has working private toilet facilities, WIFI, and electricity. Imagine the baby of a beautiful house and a rugged tent. Glamping in Bled is the ultimate way to be a part of nature without giving up your luxuries.

Best glamping in Bled (pros & cons)

There are five major glam camping spots at Lake Bled, and each one is a little different. Each has its pros and cons, depending on what you’re into. So, let’s take a look at the differences before you make your decision.

Lakeside glamping

Camping Bled Glamping – This glamping with hot tub offers two different kinds of glamping: one for couples or solo travelers, and one for families. They’re right at the edge of the lake, and perfect for a weekend getaway. And there’s an outdoor hot tub with each hut.

More like traditional camping

Camping Garden Park – If you want glamping that’s closer to traditional camping, but you don’t have to do it yourself, this is it. You get a barbecue, and food is served, but you are in a more rural, less glam situation.

Glamping with hot tub

Glamping Ribno – This is the real luxury glamping, right here. You get a hot tub, private terrace, and shared bathroom. The downside is that you’re deeper into the forest and away from the best views of the lake and mountains. And, as I said, the bathroom is shared.

Glamping in a tree house

Garden Village Bled – More a village than a campsite, this network of lodges is perfect for anyone from solo travelers to families. It’s all about relaxation, offering massages and a natural pool, but it’s certainly the furthest removed from camping. You might forget all about the lake when you’re here.

Glamping with a natural pool

Glamping Pibernik – Pr’ Hostar – This selection of wood chalets has full electricity that includes a TV set and even a games console! It’s a real home-away-from-home, but like the other most glamorous options, you’re a little far out from Lake Bled itself here.

The final option, Family Glamping, is exactly what the name suggests: glamping lakeside as a family. You’re situated at the edge of the forest with easy access to the lake, and you get glamping with hot tub!

Camping Garden Park

This is the happy middle ground between camping and glamping. It’s not super luxurious but it does offer you a comfy wooden cabin, a continental breakfast each morning, and a barbecue! With Camping Garden Park, you’re getting the feel of camping outdoors but with the luxury of not having to go fishing or hunting; or having to put up your own tent.

You’ve got a comfy bed to sleep in, but you’re still in-touch enough with wilderness to feel that soothing calm that comes with getting back to nature!

Glamping Ribno

Private cabins with private deck terraces that look out across the forest. Everything is wooden, and nothing is wasted. It’s an eco-friendly option that allows you the feeling of being totally immersed in nature but with privacy. The only downside is that the bathrooms and showers are shared on-site; you don’t get your own private facilities.

But the price of the glamping allows you access to the breakfast and the restaurant of the nearby hotel.
