Hiking and Walking


There Walking back down to the village from the top of Klekare plenty of walking and hiking opportunities directly from the chalet.  Planina pod Golico features in quite a few hiking guides and websites. 


In May, the meadows in the valley are awash with blooming wildflowers, including the white Narcissus that make the village famous across Slovenia.  Planina pod Golico is very popular with local hikers and gets busy on summer weekends, when the beech forests are ideal for shady walking on a hot day.  In early Spring and later in Autumn, the peaks are often capped with Narcisus in bloom in the meadows of Planina pod Golicosnow and the changing colours of the trees ensure beautiful views.


There's lots more hiking in the local area, including the Julian Alps, Vintgar Gorge, Lake Bled or Lake Bohinj.  A multi-day trip into the high Alps is possible with nights in the mountain huts.  The closest access to the Julian Alps is in Vrata valley, about 25 mins from the chalet.
