Approximately a half-an-hour drive from Bled, in the very heart of the Triglav National Park, which is at its 838 square kilometers the largest protected area in Slovenia, a plethora of dreamy hiking trails connect valleys with the rugged mountainous world. One of them is a picturesque trail from the Vrata Valley to a high-Alpine plateau set underneath prominent 2.5K peaks. Named after the 2,410-m-tall mountain Križ, the Kriški Podi plateau is home to countless marmots, chamois and Alpine ibexes. Yet that’s not all. The fairytale hike lets you soak up breathtaking views of the highest mountain of Slovenia, Mt. Triglav, and its 3-km wide and 1-km tall Triglav North Face. With sheer rock walls towering all around you and the land so bountiful with wild animals, it feels like being in the middle of remote and dangerous mountains, while in reality it’s the very opposite. The steel cable secures only a couple of more exposed sections on the otherwise technically easy trail, and is as such appropriate for anyone normally fit and with a hearty sense of adventure.

Exploring Slovenia is at Velika Milanja.
2 days ago
Somewhere in the southern Slovenia in the heart of the Goričko, Notranjsko and Snežniško hribovje range, where you’ll also find the largest forested area in the country that among other animals houses also bears, wolves and lynxes, ascends quite modestly Velika Milanja. At 1,099 m, it’s not by far anything grandiose, yet it impresses with a different type of appeal. Its special flora with tall and very particular looking flowers and gentle grasses gives Velika Milanja its own distinctive character, making it appealing to hikers regardless of its modest height. In case you’re wondering, the views around it are beautiful too. 😊Photo by 📸 @simonspilar ...
