Walks and hiking

Pleasant walk in fresh air amongst conifers and pastures

The mountain offers numerous possibilities for walks and hiking, which can be combined with the visits of the natural and ethnological sites of interest.

You can choose between two routes when you exit the cable car. You can either continue the drive by the double seat lift Šimnovec, or set off to the top of the mountain by foot (30 minute walk). In any case, we recommend that you walk a little further on the gentle slope of the mountain for additional 15 minutes and visit the herdsmen’s settlement, which is 15 minutes away. Pass the lodging house Zeleni rob and follow the signs for the herdsmen’s settlement- Mala planina.

The settlement is full of interesting sites worth seeing. You are welcome to peep into one of the herdsmen’ cottages and try home made dairy products. You can continue your hike to Mala planina and visit somewhat smaller herdsmen’s settlement or several lodging houses, where you can treat yourself to refreshment.

Our suggestion

The second route leads to the direction of mountains Konjščica and Dol. Pass the lodging house Zeleni rob and turn left after a few hundred metres. From there on follow the signs for the two mountains. You will reach Konjščica after 15 min. From there you can also descend to mountain Dol.

The most active visitors can set off on the mountain by foot. Foot paths are clearly marked. The exit points are Stahovica, Kamniška Bistrica- Kraljev Hrib and Krivčevo, which is located by the local road Stahovica-Črnivec. The estimated time to Velika planina is 3 hours. You can use the cable car to return to the valley.

The mountain is also a starting point for the hikes onto the higher summits in the Kamnik Alps.
