Velunja - Hotel Golte

Starting at the stunning valley of Velunja stream, Day Four has a beautiful gorge, more streams and forest in store for you, ending at hotel Golte, where you will be treated to delicious food and magnificent views from this stunning ski lodge.

Our walk takes us to the cute Žlebnik homestead, where the famous poet, Karl Destovnik-Kajuh spent his final days, to the beautiful gorge of Hudi potok then we cross the valley of Ljubija stream until our final ascent to Golte. During our walk, the path almost disappears at times creating an ethereal feel. You’ll easily see why Slovenia is Europe’s hidden gem.

At Golte, you have access to the wellness centre with pools, spas and even a massage if you choose. Meals are delicious, with a variety of authentic and modern cuisine, along with a wider variety of wines.
