An opportunity to climb the highest, easily-accessible mountain in Triglav National Park. Visevnik is among the least demanding mountains to conquer, yet promises all the picture-perfect scenery and beautiful views of this Alpine heaven. Visevnik is a 2050m 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 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. Besides views of Triglav, Slovenia’s pride and joy, Visevnik also offers unforgettable scenes of other surrounding mountains: The neighbouring peaks of Mali and Veliki Draski vrh and Debela pec, 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.
