Half-Day Tour, start from Prtovč, pick-up in Ljubljana
Ratitovec, a mountain popular with hikers of all ages and experience, is a long mountain ridge with several peaks, the most visited being Gladki Vrh a few steps above the Krek mountain hut. Surprisingly friendly with inviting open meadows and stellar stunning views of the Slovenian Alps and Triglav, it calls for sunrise and sunset hikes and everything in between.
We park in an enchanting little village of Prtovč and start our round trip to Gladki Vrh, the most visited peak of the Ratitovec Ridge. Considering the weather, we take either the "Čez Povden" trail up and "Čez Razor" down, or the other way around. If the first trail offers more dramatic views of the steep face of the mountain, the other ascends slowly offering numerous spots for a break. Please note that it's about 1.5 hours to the Gladki Vrh peak for adults, which should make a 2-hour walk up for young families.
