What you'll do

Arnold Rikli, a 19th century naturopath, has left an enormous mark on Bled. We will follow his trails in a non-conventional tour in Bled, lasting around 3 hours. We will start by the lake shore, get to know the credo of the Riklians, take a barefoot walking trail and then climb Rikli's fitness path to Straža hill. There, we will visit his monument and see some amazing viewpoints.
Other things to note
Some light hiking included. Parts of the path go through the woods.

Neža. Riklianer, mommy, translator, qualified tourist guide, Bled hop-on hop-off bus local guide, forest fairy, elf, bookworm.

Whatever I do, I do with enthusiasm and passion.

Beauties and stories of the Gorenjska (Upper Carniola) region in Slovenia are surrounding me my entire life. Family trips and exploring Slovenia in detail are something I grew up with. Knowing its history, folk tales and customs as well as its rich cultural heritage makes Gorenjska not only a stunning piece of nature, but also a place full of memorable stories. A native of the region with a degree in translation for Slovenian, English and French and a qualified regional tourist guide as well as api-tourist guide, I will gladly share these stories with you.

Where you'll be

We'll start in Zdraviliški park in Bled, a beautiful park by the lake shore where Rikli's Natural healing institute was based. Nearby, we will see the ruins of his villa. We'll continue by the lake shore, with a view of our goal, the hill Straža. Barefoot trail is on the way there, in front of Rikli balance hotel. After a climb on Rikli's fitness trail we wil reach our main goal, Rikli's monument on top of Straža hill.
