Hiking in Slovenia
The route from Rudno polje to Lipanca makes a virtually ideal family trip – it starts as a gentle walk through the mighty Pokljuka spruce forests, continues with a slight ascent on the margin of the Pokljuka plateau, becomes somewhat more diverse and ends on the fairly steep grass slopes below Lipanca, from where you finally reach the mountain hut Blejska koča. Hardier mountaineers will need about one and a half hours for the trip, but if you take children with you, more time will be necessary, especially if you tackle the route in August, when these forests are full of strawberries and bilberries.
A further tip: If you click on any picture, you will get a larger picture in a pop-up window.
