The green Završnica valley is ideal for walking and cycling; the high Karavanke mountain range invites lovers of hiking and offers views of Lake Bled and the surrounding area.

The Završnica recreational park is situated in the Završnica valley, surrounded by the mighty Karavanke mountain range. The park is easily accessible and yet remote enough to allow you an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 

The natural position of the valley, that locals call Zavrh, and the well thought out setting of the facilities for recreation and free-time bring a smile to every face. Rest amid unspoilt nature, enjoy sports, peaceful walks and other green activities that invite families, hikers, climbers, mountaineers and school groups to the park.

Završnica Valley is the starting point for the various peaks in the Karavanke Mountains on the north side and hikes to the reef, called Reber on the south side of the valley.
