The popular ski resort of Kranjska Gora, most famous for hosting the annual World Cup Slalom every January, is the starting point for this tour. You will spend your first night here amid the jagged peaks of the western Julian Alps (family hotel 3*).

16 km round trip / ascent 400 m. Valleys and hillside walk (hotel 3*).
Today you'll visit the beautiful Lake Jasna and then head into the equally lovely Jasna Valley, where you'll be greeted by the glorious mountain arena of the Prisank and Razor Mountains. Stop at Krnica hut for a traditional homemade stew. On the way back you can visit the “Russian Chapel” a touching monument dedicated to Russian POWs who died during WW1 while building the military road over Vršič Pass.

11 km / ascent 200 m. Valleys & meadows walk (4* hotel).
You will be transferred through the lush green Radovna Valley, framed by soaring mountain peaks, to where the Radovna River has carved the 150m-deep Vintgar Gorge. The trail leads along a wooden walkway through the gorge and onwards to the world-famous Bled Lake. Along the way you can stop at the Katarina Church viewpoint. Here you will get a unique view of Bled Castle. Your hotel overlooks the lake. If you arrive early enough, head up to the castle for a great view of the church on the island.

12 km / ascent 200 m. Mountain meadows & treeline walk (4* hotel).
You will be driven by car up to the Pokljuka Plateau to begin your hike across mountain pastures and rustic farmhouses to a viewing point into the beautiful Bohinj Valley. As you descend, you can stop at the little historic village of Studor and journey back in time. Your final destination is Lake Bohinj. Framed in a dead end valley by the Julian Alps, Lake Bohinj is the pearl of the Triglav National Park.

Day 5: DEPARTURE after breakfast or extension of your stay. You may wish to continue hiking onward over our Goldhorn Trail!
