The sun, pure air, low relative humidity and bearable summer temperatures maka Pokljuka one of the natural health resorts. Walking on forest paths, watching fauna and flora or cycling on never-ending forest paths will restore your mental and physical shape.
Pokljuka serves as a gateway to numerous monutain paths leading into the hogh mountains of the Julian Alps, amongst them alsto to Slovenia's highest peak Triglav. Over many ancient alps lying on the fringes of the vast forest area, cattle are still being herded nowadays wanderers can always refresh themselves with a glass of home-made sour milk, cottage cheese ot they can even taste butter or cheese made just there in the alps. Althought each alp has a character of its own, their common feature is shingle-covered wooden cottages, carefully embedded in the natural environment.
Production of charcoal in charcoal kilns is an old tradition recently revived for tourists, reminding one of the events from the not-so-far 19. century when charcoal was the principal power source used in smelting furnaces for iron ore.
In wintertime, Pokljuka is normally covered with a thick sheet of snow. Despite this, the plateau is readily accessible both from Bohinj and from Bled. Ski lifts operating near the Sport hotel , the Jelka inn, under Viševnik and in Zatrnik contribute to extensive cross coutry skiing trails leading amid spruce woods.
