1-Day Tour, start from Lake of Predil, pick-up in Krajska Gora / Bled
Join us on an amazing hike in the Julian Alps to admire spectacular mountainous landscape with the 1,400-m long and 400-m wide glacial Rabeljsko Jezero (Lake of Predil) dominating a thousand meters below. Jerebica, a beautiful peak right on the border between Slovenia and Italy, shows a formidable and precipitous north-eastern side from Lake of Predil, but we tackle the mountain from its much friendlier and greener northern side. A long and partly exposed hike takes us to the 2,126-meter peak where on a nice day the glacial lake glitters a thousand meters below, looking much smaller from a distance, but no less spectacular. Idyllically surrounded by steep green mountains that stretch forever in every direction, both to Slovenia and Italy, while also to Austria in the distance, the turquoise Lake of Predil looks so surreal that it’s hard to imagine it exists outside of a fairytale. Perfection in its broadest sense.
We meet in the morning either in Bled or Kranjska Gora (also available from the Soča Valley as a private departure) to drive to the starting point of our day’s mountain adventure right across the border on the Italian side of the Julian Alps. We start with a beautiful hike through a forest which then continues across open wildflower-strewn meadows with spectacular views of even higher neighboring mountains. On the way to the top we also make a short detour to the 2,008-m Gorenji Rob, yet another charming grassy peak where we can enjoy stupendous 360 views of the mountainous world of the Julian Alps. The last section becomes a bit more technical and you’ll have to use your hands to scramble over a few bits. Those of you who do manage to overcome the last few more exposed details are rewarded with breathtaking panorama from the top. Comfortably seated on the soft grass we can admire the dreamy Lake of Predil, the Trenta and Soča Valleys, and countless gorgeous peaks of the Julian Alps like the 2,753-m Montaž, 2,666-m Viš, a colossal 2K wall with the 2,208-m Rombon, and Jalovec and Mangart, the sixth and the third highest mountains of Slovenia.
