Winter tours Slovenia - Velika Planina
Just a few steps from the capital city Ljubljana and in the north part of Slovenia lay the Kamnik – Savinja Alps where you can enjoy outstanding winter tours Slovenia. Along with the Julian Alps and Karavanke they represent one of the three mountain ranges in Slovenia. Right below the Alps we can find the spring of the clear mountain river Kamniška Bistrica and above her we will find, on the altitude of 1500 m above the sea level, the most famous village of Alpine herdsmen in Slovenia, Velika Planina. In the winter this village changes into a pleasant ski resort and it is a great area for winter tours.
As a part of trekking Velika Planina, the path will take us along the colourful canyon of Kamniška Bistrica river, that in some parts carved a 35 m deep and 2 m wide river bed in the limestone in Predaselj. In Kamniška Bistrica we will take a look at the lake and hunting residence of the former Yugoslav president Tito, which was designed by the most important Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik. Gondola will take us to Velika Planina, where we can try fresh, still warm, milk or some other dairy product.
