On Mountain Golica Among The Daffodils

May 14, 2022

Beautiful mountain Golica


For me, this incredible trip is the most beautiful spring experience in the Slovenian mountains, when thousands and thousands of daffodils bloom on the slopes of Golica. The blooming starts first on Planina pod Golico and in Javornišek Rovt, then the grassy slopes become covered in flowers higher and higher up. Depending on the weather and the amount of snow that needs to melt, the daffodils bloom from early May until the end of June. Last year I caught them at the top of Golica on 20 June, but they bloomed much earlier this year.

The city of Jesenice is about 30 minutes by car from the Jacobs Resort in Podkoren, and then you have to drive a little higher to the starting point at Planina pod Golico, where you can park only in the marked car park. By the way, this means another 20-minute drive from Jesenice to the starting point. But beware, during the daffodil bloom and the crowds, the road to Javorniški Rovt and Planina pod Golico is closed on weekends. In this case, you should leave your car in the city of Jesenice and take the free shuttle bus.

There are several easy or semi-difficult marked and unmarked trails leading to Golica. The circular route is the best option, as walking up and down the same paths is boring. This year, I headed to the summit with my mother, following the winter trail past the hut and back to the starting point via the ridge trail over the Suha saddle. I admired the most significant number of blooming daffodils on this ridge path and enjoyed the fantastic views. Golica is also suitable for slightly older children and puppies.

I want to stress at this point that you should respect the mountain flowers so that future generations can enjoy the crazy views of the blooming daffodils.

But a safe step, even such an easy path, should not be underestimated. I share my tips and ideas of what to see and experience, but each one must take safety care of safety alone. Therefore, for any injuries and accidents, I do not accept responsibilities. Everyone knows how much they can do.
