Hike to one of the best panoramic views in the region
Today walk up the northern side of the Kamnik Alps - Goli Vrh. A meadow and forest walk brings you to an amazing viewpoint above the Jezersko valley. With one foot in Slovenia and the other in Austria, you’ll enjoy splendid views of the Grintovec range.
Take care on the trail today. There are some sections of path that are difficult underfoot. Slippery logs, steep areas of ascent and descent make for harder going. Keep concentrating on where you put your feet, and take your time, particularly if it is wet.
Weather conditions can change quickly in the mountains - always be prepared and carry appropriate clothing; warm as well as waterproof layers, hat and gloves etc. Please see your information pack for a detailed packing list.
Tips and hints
Virnikov Grintavec is one of the best lookout point for Kamnik and Savinja Alps and the panorama from its summit is great also in all other directions. Kamnik and Savinja Alps are stretching on the SE, further towards the E the rest of Karawanks is stretching (towards Olševa and Peca), on the N is the Obir massif and its mountains, futher more to the W is the whole long range of Košuta. Left of Košuta in the distance Julian Alps with Triglav can be seen. On the SW we see the sharp summit of Storžič and its neighbourhood.
Trekking poles are highly recommended for today’s walk. They will aid your balance and make the more difficult sections of trail much easier to navigate.
