Mala Osojnica, Lake Bled

One of the best viewpoints in Slovenia which shouldn't be missed is called Mala Osojnica. To soak up the views over the world-famous lake Bled you need to conquer a steep 20-minute path to this hill. For the best outcome, try to ascend in the early morning hours or when the sun sets. If you are up to do some additional stretching, continue the path to Velika Osojnica - it will take you another 20 minutes. Absolutely loved that place! Here is how we experienced it!

Gonjace, Goriska Brda

Another great viewpoint can be found in Goriska Brda - a region full of vineyards! Oh, I love that part of Slovenia! To locate it, look for the observation tower in Gonjace. Once there, take the steps and immerse the beauty over the hills, those vineyards and the townlet called Smartno. What else to do when exploring this Slovenian area? Here are some further tips!

Neboticnik, Ljubljana

Neboticnik is the first skyscraper that was built in Slovenia. There is a cute bar at the top, serving delicious cakes and good coffee, but the most spectacular are the 360° panorama views over the city. We absolutely love coming here! 

Sabotin, Goriska Brda

This 609 metres-high mountain ridge makes it a great viewpoint over the turquoise and more and more famous Soca river. This 1h and 30 minutes hike starts in Solkan and ends at the Chalet pleached at the top of Sabotin. Don't worry, it's quite an easy hike. Once there the views are spectacular!

Vogar, Bohinj

Discovered recently, for me, the Vogar viewpoint is one of the best viewpoints in Slovenia. It is less famous than the one of the neighbouring mountain called Vogel, but hence less crowded and a touch more romantic. It offers stunning views over the lake Bohinj and its surroundings. How to access it, is written here.

Nanos

The ascend to the mountain called Nanos gives one a phenomenal view over the beautiful Vipava valley. This hike with a middle difficulty starts in Razdrto and takes about 1.5 hours to reach the Vojkova chalet at the top of the mountain. Go for it!

Triglav

Take a whole day or maybe even two to reach THIS viewpoint! It will require much of your energy and patience, as we're talking here about the highest mountain in Slovenia! Wouldn't be awesome to conquer Slovenia's highest peak?! Well, think about it. The views from the top over the Julian Alps are magnificent!

Jamnik

Jamnik with its church is a beautiful spot to enjoy the hilly landscape of the northern part of Slovenia. A picturesque path is leading to a church. But be adviced, to reach this place you would need to drive some narrow roads first.

The Strunjan Cliff

The lovely Strunjan cliff is a great spot to get a glimpse of the Slovenian coast! It can be visited when taking the trail from Izola to the Strunjan's Cross, which is pleached at the hill just at the town's seafront. I love this place and I could probably seat here all day long!

Velika Planina

Velika Planina makes it a great half-day trip from Ljubljana! This mountain can be found near the medieval town Kamnik. And what's so special? First, you have the herdsmen's settlement, known for its interesting architecture and then you have the chance to taste and buy local's diary products. The cherry on the top is definitely this amazing view from Velika Planina over the Kamniska Bistrica valley. There are two ways to reach the top - you can either go hiking or take the cable car.
