Ice Skating

Ice skating is such a fun activity, not to mention it’s great exercise! Our area offers ice skating possibilities both outdoor and inndor.

When it’s cold enough and when Lake Bled or the Zavrsnica reservoir have frozen over in winter and the sun is shining through, it is difficult to imagine a more magnificent sight than to see adults and children gliding over the ice. The number of days that the lake and the reservoir are frozen is obviously dependant on the weather and some years will see several weeks of ice, while others will see hardly any! The locals know when and where it is safe to skate and where it’s not! Ask if in any doubt!
