Lake Bled is surrounded by monadnock hills acting as guards and closing access points to the lake. Every single hill represents a popular and intriguing point of interest. Our path “From Hill to Hill around the Lake” connects these individual endpoints into a single unit – a ring of higher grounds above Lake Bled providing different viewpoints. Dobra gora is less known, less crowded and provides shelter for the animals. Straža offers a fitness trail and a ski slope, Mala Osojnica and Ojstrica are a paradise for photographers. And if you would like to take in the natural beauty and not meet many people on the way, then Stan would be your choice, where you can witness the famous Bohinj railway line from above. Višce provides the foreground of Bled Castle – an icon that does not need any introduction. All in all, the “From Hill to Hill” path provides a real joy for enthusiastic hikers. You need to be in a fairly good shape, as you will walk on this path for 5 hours and cover a total height difference of 766 m. This path can be walked in one go as a round trip or in stages.
Don’t forget to bring your camera!
There is an entrance fee to go into Bled Castle.
