Hiking Trails in Radovljica and its Surroundings

The most popular hiking trail in the Radol'ca area is undoubtedly the one that leads to the famous Roblekov dom mountain hut. In addition to 'Roblek', you can also hike to Dobrča, the Vodiška planina mountain pasture, Talež, Jamnik and on a network of other trails.

On hiking trails you will encounter stunning views and wonderful mountain pastures, where cattle graze in summer, and can sample some of the delicious, hearty food available in mountain huts. Two of the most scenic of the circular trails are the Shepherds' Trail, which leads from the Draga valley to the Preval mountain pasture then onwards beneath the slopes of Mt. Begunščica to reach the Roblekov dom mountain hut, and the trail around Kropa's mountains to the Vodiška planina mountain highland.

 

You can also reach the slopes of Mt. Begunščica from Ljubelj and the Završnica valley. From the latter, which is just a 15-minute drive from Radovlijca, you can hike up to the Stol, the highest peak in the Karavanke mountains, or to the peak of Vrtača, while the starting points for hikes to other peaks in the Karavanke mountains are also not far away.

 

The Vodiška planina mountain pasture on the Jelovica plateau can be reached via a number of trails from Kropa, while there is also a path to the prominent church on Jamnik from where there are stunning panoramic views.

 

Radovljica's location in close proximity to the Gorenjska motorway enables easy access to Triglav National Park. You can set off to explore the park from several directions. The closest access points of the Pokljuka plateau and the Vrata valley, and Bohinj and Kranjska Gora are just a little further afield.

 

Two long-distance hiking trails run through the Radovljica area:

 

Slovenian Mountain Trail

The Slovenian Mountain Trail leads across the Karavanke mountains. Its course within the municipality of Radovljica runs from neighbouring Tržič up to Dobrča and from there to the Preval mountain highland and up to the peak of Veliki vrh on Mt. Begunščica. From there the trail descends via the Roblekov dom mountain hut before continuing towards Zelenica and onwards to Mt. Stol – the highest peak in the Karavanke mountains. There are control points at the Koča na Dobrči mountain hut, the mountain hut on the Preval mountain pasture, Mt. Begunščica, and the Roblekov dom mountain hut.

 

 

Juliana Trail Long-Distance Hiking Trail

The trail has been designed to traverse around Triglav National Park via hilltops with wonderful views and through quaint villages. It offers a combination of the natural and cultural heritage of the Julian Alps. Stage 4 of the Juliana Trail, which begins in Begunje na Gorenjskem, leads through the Radol'ca area. From there the trail leads across meadows and through rural villages to reach the old town centre of Radovljica and onwards alongside the Sava river to Bled.
