Stol

One-Day Tour, start from Završnica / Valvasor Hut (pick-up in Bled)

One of the best one day missions is just a stone throw away from Bled, Mt. Stol. You should not miss it if you have the time and the energy. It’s doable in practically all conditions. You can expect idyllic blue skies and a light breeze on warm summer days, or foggy and windy weather in autumn. You may also be wading through flower speckled meadows in spring, or making your way up with crampons in a snowy fairy-tale landscapes. This stunning mountain offers epic views of the valley with the Triglav National Park rising above it, and an endless sea of the Karawanks peaks.

Itinerary

We meet in your chosen location and head towards the Valvasor Hut, where we start our hiking adventure to the highest peak of the Karawanks mountain range. Headed towards Mt. Stol, 2,236 m, the highest mountain of the Karawanks mountain range, the hike will serve us idyllic vistas across the valley floor, the Sava River, and Lake Bled. The top will literally blow your mind away as the landscape suddenly transforms into an Alpine fairytale with seemingly never-ending peaks all around. After we enjoy ourselves at the top for a while, we go for a good mountain lunch to a hut just a few minutes down the peak. Afterwards, we descend down to our car, from where we drive back to your chosen location.
