A circular route of Velika Planina

The unique Velika Planina boasts the highest still an active shepherding village in Slovenia. You can get to know this beautiful environment by hiking an interesting circular path fitted with 11 information boards, each presenting one of the plateau’s characteristics. The boards are positioned all across Velika Planina and the path will take you about 2 hours and 15 minutes.

With the help of an experienced local guide, you will also learn why Trnič cheese is the only cheese of love in the world, and get to know ancient traditions. You are invited to experience the joy of exploring the beauties of this mountain pasture with magnificent views of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, and to treat yourself to homemade delicacies such as sour milk and Žganci porridge. Those who prefer to explore the beauties of the circular path on their own can use an interactive mobile app available here.
