As you embark on your warm-up stroll, you'll journey past the first of the many stunning lakes you'll explore during this excursion: the enchanting Lake Jasna. Framed by the rugged peaks of the Julian Alps, Lake Jasna provides an idyllic setting for relaxation. Yet, save your leisure for the return trip, as there's more beauty to behold ahead. As you venture further through the scenic Jasna Valley, you'll be met by the majestic mountain amphitheater formed by the Prisank and Razor Mountains. Your journey will conclude with a visit to the poignant "Russian Chapel," a tribute to Russian prisoners of war who perished while constructing the military road over Vršič Pass during World War I.

Today's adventure leads you alongside rivers as they carve their paths through verdant valleys, embraced by majestic peaks. Your journey begins in the village of Mojstrana, where you'll venture into the Krma and Radovna valleys. As you approach the exit, don't miss the chance for a short detour to marvel at the roaring rapids of Vintgar Gorge. Soon after, you'll step into the enchanting realm of Lake Bled, a place that feels straight out of a fairy tale.

Day 4: CYCLING BLED - KROPA - RADOVLJICA - BLED (↔ 35 km, ↑↓ 510 m)

Day 5: RAFTING LAKE BLED (↔ 8 km, grade 2-3)

A three-hour rafting trip on the Sava Dolinka river (grade 2-3). This trip is suitable for all, no extra experience or equipment needed. With a free afternoon in Bled you'll have time to explore its lake, row yourself over to the island church, and hike up to the clifftop castle for a splendid view across the lake and valley, then end the day by treating yourself to Bled's famous cream cake.

Day 6: HIKING POKLJUKA – USKOVNICA - LAKE BOHINJ (4 hrs, ↔ 14 km, ↑ 30 m, ↓ 830 m)
