Osojnica is one of the favourite viewpoints for photographers so prepare for a stunning view.
There is an approximately 45 minute long walk along the steep forest path leading to Mala Osojnica (685 m). The ascent will reward you with the finest views of Lake Bled and its outlying areas, Karavanke mountains, Kamnik Alps and the Gorenjska plain. All the well-known panoramas of Bled have been shot from there for a reason.

Getting there

Signposts for Little and High Osojnica and Ojstrica are seen by main road from Zaka to Pristava. Footpath to Mala Osojnica (685 metres) goes after steep forest way. At the end of the path you can expect almost vertical wooden stairs. At the top we are awarded with wonderful views to Lake Bled, Karavanke mountain, Kamnik Alps and Gorenjska plateau. There are wooden benchs where we can rest and enjoy in a beauty of the country. In the Mala Osojnica is also a small hut which is convenient in rainy weather. The footpath to Ojstrica leads us from Mala and Velika Osojnica. We can also make a circular way.


The closest parking lot is Parking Velika Zaka, located by the Camping Bled.
