  • One of the most remarkable days in our Slovenia 10 day tour. It was an amazing day of hiking and great scenery with fresh air and amazing views! We used the cable car taking us around "Grandische" from where we headed off to Velika Planina as a start of our hike. We have taken the long hike around Velika down to Mala Planina and back again. I have to admit and recommend that once at Mala Planina, the views and hike get less remarkable whilst the hiking directions get less and less clear which we ended up losing precious time (Point 7 to Point 9 on the shared trail was not properly marked)! Other that that it was a unique experience at and around Europe's largest pasture settlement with amazing views around the settlement from a distance and closeby, amazing trails and scenery and gorgeous cows everywhere :)) I strongly recommend hiking around between Grandishe and Mala Planina but visit the actual Velika settlement earlier as late afternoon we found the church closed and limited tasting options. This is truly one of Slovenia's hidden gems (not crowded in September) which makes me even more willing to come again as it was truly amazing!
  • This is a fantastic place to enjoy a half day in a very unique, clean, and beautiful nature. The two cable cars make a fabulous experience. Hiking in the rural areas and visiting nature and cows are lovely. Don't forget to buy cheese from the locals because they have good quality ones with perfect taste.
