TRIPS and ACTIVITIES in hostel
As well as pleasant accommodation, we offer the following trips from 26.6. until 29.8.2014. Trips are organized for min five participants, price €10, with transfer €20 per person. Reservation is needed one day in advance.  

Monday – The Pokljuka ravine
Departure for Pokljuka ravine at 4 p.m.. We will take you to the village Krnica from where we will access the ravine. It is 2 km long and 40 m deep at its most picturesque part. Paths for visitors lead into the most beautiful central part of the ravine. 

There are numerous natural sights. These include: the Pokljuška Luknja – a spacious rocky cave with a fallen ceiling, a large natural bridge which is 24 m above the bottom of the ravine, and small round fields called “vrtci” (little gardens) by the locals. We will pass the very narrow straits in order to reach the most beautiful “little garden” and a small natural bridge by the means of wooden boardwalk. A diversity of vegetation, from ferns to forest and mountain flowers, grows at the bottom and on the rocky walls. The paths are similar to mountain trails – we recommend good footwear. To make walking easier you can use walking sticks.... 


Wednesday – »Pokljuka day«
Departure at 9 a.m. in the direction of Pokljuka forest plateau. We will have amazing views over both the Bled lake and Bohinj lake in one day. We will stop in a village, called Gorjuše. From there we will walk up the mountain Galetovec (1265m). From the summit you have a breath taking view across the Bled lake to the Karavanke mountain range. Afterwards we will drive to the village Koprivnik and from there we will walk to Vodnikov razglednik – an amazing view point above the Bohinj valley and the Bohinj lake. After this we will drive to the Bohinj lake, where it is possible to swim in high summer. On the way back to Bled we can visit a private Etno museum with degustation of local products (optional – €6/person).


Friday – hiking to DEBELA PEČ – 2014 m
Debela peč is easy to walk and hike, but it has anamazing view to the highest Slovenian mountain – Triglav – 2864m, Karavanke region and Bled valley. We walk distance of 13 km and climb 700m  altitude over  5 hours. Depart at 9 a.m. from hostel. Option – lunch in mountain hut.  


Friday evening - »Cinema under the stars«: At 9 p.m. we meet on the hostel terrace to join the slide show – »Julian Alps – story from the backpack«. In the case of bad weather the slide show will be shown in the restaurant.   


Those are only three of many possible trips in the Bled region. You have to go to visit Vintgar Gorge, make a walk to Bled castle or around Bled lake and then after taste a delicious sweet, named »kremšnita« - the traditional Bled cream cake. They made 12 million of them in the last 60 years. 

We wish you a pleasant stay.
