  • Forests and open pastures with cows and sheep
  • Famous authentic shepherd's houses
  • View of Ljubljana
  • The chapel of Snow Mary
  • Meet “old-school” shepherds and their cheese making tradition

When we think of a life full of laughter and free of stress, we think of people who are most connected to nature. Slovenia’s shepherds definitely fit into that category, and their centuries-old traditions are now available to you.

Our hike will start with a gondola lift from Kamniška Bistrica. From there, the paths will take us up grassy hills, where we will get to see an authentic shepherd's village while taking in the breathtaking views of the Alps from Velika Planina Slovenia.

The tour is easy and flexible, suitable for beginners, families, and children.

That was a nice, easy walk. The little houses on top are so adorable, it's like being in a fairy tale.

I imagined it would be more challenging, but you actually take a cable up to the mountain and walk on top, which is mostly flat. So it is perfect for older visitors or probably children. The scenery is beautiful
