Alpine pastures of Pokljuka
Day Tour, start from Pokljuka, pick-up in Bled or Bohinj
Set against a playground of high peaks of the Julians Alps and yet so snugly hidden in the otherwise thick forest, Pokljuka’s Alpine pastures offer perfect easier hiking with breathtaking views. Recommended throughout the year to anyone that is fairly fit (kids aged 12+ years).
As many great treks in the Julian Alps, among them also the most scenic tour to Triglav, this one too starts from Rudno Polje in Pokljuka, a sports center at 1,350 m mostly focused on Nordic skiing and biathlon. We park our car there and head out on our 18-km loop among three breathtaking Alpine pastures of the Julian Alps.
First, our trail takes us to Planina Konjščica, a beautiful pasture with around a dozen little huts scattered along a kilometer-long clearing surrounded by tall mountains. From there we continue towards Planina Uskovnica following the Ribnica stream, weaving through a fluffy white landscape between snow-capped rocks and white fir trees. From Uskovnica, a small village spread across a remote hummock-strewn clearing, we head towards the last Alpine pasture of the day, the Zajamniki Pasture. Much smaller than Uskovnica, it’s one of the most romantic Alpine meadows in the Slovenian Alps. Surrounded by forests, about sixty huts lie stretched across this high-altitude pasture with a backdrop of mountain peaks of the Julian Alps to the west and the beautiful Bohinj mountains to the south.
If you do a private tour, the loop can easily be adjusted according to your wishes with an option of seeing a sunrise or sunset at one of the pastures.
