Half-Day Tour, start from Pokljuka, pick-up in Bled or Bohinj
Discover an amazing peak above Pokljuka, just 20km from Bled. Comfortably accessible and with astonishing views of Triglav, amazing neighboring peaks and rolling hilltops of Pokljuka and Bohinj, Viševnik is one of the most rewarding and popular mountains in Slovenia. Not too demanding and suitable also for the less experienced, yet equally beautiful, it is one of those mountains you will never forget.
We park at the recreational center's parking lot at Rudno Polje on Pokljuka, only to follow a nice forest trail to the old ski slopes not far away and then further up the slope until the view is clear and open to the whole beautiful south face of the mountain. From there on, it's nothing but pleasure to walk up enjoying nice views of the forest-covered hills of Pokljuka. What is most stunning about the route are the views of the other side of the mountain where Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain, stands so close you could most probably grasp it. No matter how many times you've conquered Viševnik, the view from the top never gets old, truly. The ascent is a mere 2-hour walk, while the descent is usually over in half the time.
"After my July vacation in Slovenia, when I joined Exploring Slovenia on four tours in the mountains and had such a great time, I simply had to go back in August. It really absorbs you, you know. The first new tour we did was Viševnik. It wasn’t a difficult hike - could be fun for families with children too! - and the nature and scenery along the way were beautiful. The abundant wild flowers and their scents resembled a walk in a flower garden. Since it was a weekend the top was pretty crowded, but we found a perfect spot nearby where we were alone and the views stupendous (the location is our little secret lol)! "
