If you’re not quite ready to take on Mt. Triglav but would love to experience the magic of hiking in Slovenia’s incredible highlands, then this tour is right up your alley. Join us in climbing the highest easily accessible mountain in Triglav National Park. Viševnik is among the least demanding mountains to conquer, yet promises all the picture-perfect scenery and breathtakingly beautiful views of this Alpine heaven.  

Viševnik is a 2050 m (6725 ft) mountain, famous for being accessible to anyone with basic hiking gear and the desire to walk high above the world in an unspoilt Alpine environment. Not to undermine this sexy mountain, but reaching its summit is definitely less demanding than most peaks of its size, making it suitable for families and holidaymakers with minimal hiking experience. 

A very relaxing hike through the pristine forest of the Pokljuka Plateau leads us to our approach along a ski slope area. The ascent continues through an increasingly sparse forest, which gradually transforms into more rugged terrain, just as views of Pokljuka, the Bohinj Lake and surrounding mountains open up. Following this reasonably steep yet unchallenging ascent, we reach the southern slope that takes us to a lovely ridge just before the peak. From there, the highest peaks of the Julian Alps appear so close you could almost touch them. 

Besides views of Triglav, Slovenia’s pride and joy, Viševnik also offers unforgettable scenes of other surrounding mountains: The neighbouring peaks of Mali and Veliki Draški vrh and Debela peč, one of the most beautiful views of the famous Pokljuka Plateau, the Lower Bohinj Mountains, the western parts of the Julian Alps, the northern Sava Plain and even the northern Karawanks and Kamnik-Savinja Alps to the east.  

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear on Viševnik Tour?

It is important that your clothes are comfortable. It is recommended that you also have some warmer and windproof clothing with you as temperature can drop or in case of cold wind. You can always leave excess clothes in the van after consulting with our guide.

What happens in the event of bad weather?

Even though Slovenia is small, it has quite a diverse climate, so it is not unusual for the weather to be better in another part of the country. In that case, we will suggest a different tour where the weather will be nice. If offered alternative tour doesn’t suit you or if the weather is not suitable for hiking, you will receive a full refund if you have already prepaid our tour.

Is the tour only possible in stated season?

The season stated is informative. In case of dry conditions, the tour is also possible sooner or later in the year. If there is early or late snow in the mountains the season is shorter. I that case take a look at our Viševnik in winter tour.

We believe that your experience will be better in smaller groups. Therefore, there will be a maximum of 8 guests per guide.

    I found this hike just perfect for me, not too difficult and a bit challenging on certain parts. The view of Pokljuka is really nice.

    Loved this hike. The guide kept up a slower pace, which was perfect for me and my wife. The surrounding scenery is amazing, I highly recommend it.

    Great experience. I didn't wanna bother with anything to go hiking in Slovenia and this was superb. Besides, you really get a whole lot more from a local guide. And meet cool hikers.
