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.

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.
