Hiking Around Bled

25 Apr 2024
Bled is situated in the middle of several mountain ranges, namely the Julian Alps, Karavanke mountains and further to the east the Kamnik Alps, all of which form the awesome views from the lake itself. In the immediate vicinity are mountains of medium elevation, such as Galetovec and Lipanca at Pokljuka, Mežakla (between Bled and the town of Jesenice) and Jelovica (in Talež). Lipanca is also home to the Bled Mountaineering Club and its mountain hut (+386 45 74 26 05), the perfect place to start your trip.

If the medium heights are more of a testing ground for you than the final goal, trips further afield will surely ensue; the beautiful yet technically not too-demanding trails to Begunjščica (2060m), Stol (2236m) and Debela Peč (2015m) are good options. There are also numerous others in the aforementioned ranges to be discovered. Aside from marked trails, the mountains can be traversed with a guide from one of the agencies in Bled, which is also recommended for trips to Triglav (2864m), unless you are an experienced mountaineer.

Should you be restrained by inexperienced company, there's always the Vintgar gorge, castle hill or one of the small hills lakeside to conquer to introduce your hill-virgin friends to the joys of hiking. Why, even the Church of the Assumption on Bled island has 99 steps to be ascended in style.
