Day Tour, Soča Valley (pick-up in Kobarid / Bovec)
Venture out to Slovenia’s largest high Alpine lake. Nestled among towering mountains, the lonely Lake Krn is a picture-perfect 300 m-long and 150 m-wide lake overlooking Mt. Krn, the highest mountain of the Krn Mountains in the southwestern Julian Alps. An unforgettable experience for everyone.
Starting from Lepena, a valley just underneath the Alps, we head towards the lake on a wide forest trail. After about an 1.5-hour hike through a forest, the trail opens up to the peaks above, and after another hour we finally arrive at the lake. For the hungry, the Lake Krn Hut, located 15 minutes from the lake, serves great local food. Please note that it's about 3 hours to Lake Krn for adults (one way), which should make a 4-hour walk up for young families (one way).
