At the top you can soak up the dramatic views across the Julian and Carnian Alps, and the Hohe Tauern, the highest alpine range in Austria, forming a picturesque backdrop. The trail then descends through the valley to the source of the mighty Sava River, the longest in Slovenia, and back to Kranjska Gora.

You will be dropped off at the start of the stunning 1.6km Vintgar Gorge, carved 150 m deep into the mountains by the Radovna River. The trail leads along a wooden walkway through the gorge and onwards to the world-famous Bled Lake, via the lovely Katarina Church viewpoint. Your hotel is on the western side of the town, overlooking the lake.

Bohinjska Bela

Today you will take a leisurely stroll into Bled, a world-famous town on the shore of a beautiful glacial lake, with its unique island church sitting proudly in the lake, and the castle perched high upon a cliff standing guard over the town. A short panoramic walk can be taken to the villages of Kupljenik and Bela. For the best photos of the lake, castle and Karawanke range, photographers will want to ascend Osojnica. End the day with the local specialty – the cream cake “Kremšnita” – in one of the great little tea shops beside the lake.
