Komna – Lake Krn Trek

3-Day Tour, Lake Bohinj to Lepena Valley

High Alpine scenery with enchanting rolling hills and great peaks; an open sunny trail with scenic vistas that passes the mountains above Lake Bohinj, goes past the largest alpine lake in Slovenia, Lake Krn, and eventually ends by the emerald green River Soča, considered one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe. A truly picturesque trek suitable for anyone 8+ years.

Itinerary

Day 1 | Lake Bohinj - Komna Hut

Starting above Lake Bohinj from the parking lot at the Savica Waterfall, we continue in the direction of Komna. Notorious for its 48 serpentines that ascend slowly through a forest, the trail opens to beautiful views of Lake Bohinj here and there, yet once we hit the tree line, the views turn spectacular, showing a whole amphitheater of peaks and Lake Bohinj below. After we reach the Komna Hut, we can either spend the rest of the day at the hut or hike to one of the panoramic nearby peaks. Please note that it's about 2.45 hours to the Komna Hut for adults, which should make a 4-hour walk up for young families.

Day 2 | Komna Hut - Lake Krn Hut

After spending the night in an enchanting mountain hut at Komna, we head towards Lake Krn along a gorgeous path. Alpine scenery, scenic vistas and a nice family-friendly easy trail. Please note that it's about 3 hours from the Komna Hut to Lake Krn for adults, which should make a 4.5-hour walk up for young families. Since most of the elevation gain is done on the first day, 867 m, the second day of the trek is much easier in this respect as it requires only about 300 m of elevation gain. Once at Lake Krn, the largest high Alpine lake in Slovenia, we can spend the rest of the day by the lake, eat at the Lake Krn Hut, or hike to the scenic peaks nearby.

Day 3 | Lake Krn Hut - Lepena Valley

After spending the night at the Lake Krn Hut, we leave for the Lepena Valley after breakfast. The descent usually lasts about 2-2.5 hours, giving us enough time to explore the beautiful Soča Valley and its famous emerald green river in the afternoon. We return back to Lake Bohinj in late afternoon.
