Selected mountain trails will help you discover the most beautiful spots in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. All are marked with the typical Slovenian trail blaze which marks the direction of the trail, but not the difficulty of the trail itself. For tehnically more demanding trails we recommnd you for your safety to book a mountain guide. 

In order to hike safely around the mountain trails, we recommend that you use appropriate mountaineering equipment, such as hiking shoes or mountaineering boots and comfortable mountainwear which will protect you from the heat, wind and rain. Please use a helmet and mountain protetion gear on technically more demanding trails.

The majority of trails lead past mountain cottages, providing mountaineers with food, drink and accomodation. Nevertheless, we urge you to bring a suitable amount of food and drink to sustain you on the selected hike. Most of the mountain cottages are open during the summer tourist season, which lasts from the middle of June to the end of September.

Grintovec, 2558 m 

The highest mountain peak in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps

With it’s 2.558 metres, Mt. Grintovec is the highest mountain peak in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. It’s characteristic pyramid shape can be recognised from afar, even from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. The trail has a nearly 2.000-metre difference in alltitude, one of the biggest in the Slovenian Alps. The world’s best mountain runners challenge themselves each year on this trail. Despite it’s lenght, the trail is not too difficult for fit hikers and can be covered in a day. However, we recommend taking a 2-day tour and spending the night at the chalet Cojzova Koča at the mountaion pass Kokrsko sedlo. One can choose to reach the summit by following other routes, but they are considerably more difficult and would require hiring a mountain guide.

From there, a marked mountain trail leads to the mountain top. On the southern slopes of Mt. Raduha, we find the cave Snežna jama, one of the most stunning mountain caves in Europe.
