Jelovica Plateau

The karst landscape of the Jelovica Plateau offers endless opportunities for recreational activities in the green natural surroundings. Hike into the vast forests and search for mushrooms in the undergrowth, or set out on a cycling trip to one of the sun-drenched mountain pastures and treat yourself to a home-cooked meal or fresh forest fruits.

The forested Jelovica Plateau dominates the views from the Radovljica Plain towards the south-west. This high karst-relief plateau is separated from the rest of the Julian Alps by the valley of the Sava Bohinjka. The majority of the plateau is taken up by a flat, table-like landscape that ranges between 1,000 and 1,300 m.a.s.l.

The plateau's karst features, which are due to the predominance of limestone, make it a natural landmark and it therefore enjoys the status of a special protected area. Still today, it features sun-drenched mountain pastures with farm animals at pasture during the summer season, and moors with their characteristic flora and fauna.

The Jelovica Plateau offers countless possibilities for cycling and hiking. From the Lipnica Valley, access is possible along forest roads and hiking trails to the mountain pastures of Vodiška planina and Goška ravan, as well as to Talež Hut, from where vistas open up of the entire Radovljica Plain with the Karavanke Range, the Julian Alps and lake Bled. The Bohinj region and the Selca Valley can also be reached along the network of forest roads on the plateau.

As a consequence of mankind's limited impact, the plateau’s fauna remains well preserved. A number of bird species endangered elsewhere have found shelter here, and the plateau is part of the Natura 2000 ecological network of protected areas. The Jelovica Plateau is protected as an ecologically significant area and as an area of valuable natural features.
