Slovenië: de ideale reisbestemming voor natuurliefhebbers

Slovenië heeft een uitzonderlijk rijke natuur met invloeden van de Alpen, de Hongaarse vlakte, het Dinarische gebergte, de Middelandse zee en de Noord Italiaanse laagvlakte. Je kan al deze gebieden bezoeken op dagreizen vanuit een enkele accommodatie.

Primaeval forest in Slovenia: how does it look?

Primaeval forest once covered most of Europe. This is the ultimate landscape without humans. Do nothing, and, after a succession of different vegetation types, eventually, an entirely natural forest will grow. Nearly any other landscape is to a certain extent man-made.
Spring Crocus in Panovec Forest in Slovenia

Panovec Forest: a spring flower paradise

Close to the city of Nova Gorica, at the Italian border, you find Panovec Forest. Slovenians will consider this a city park, but it is a surprisingly natural area. In early spring, many plants flower here.      

Škocjanski zatok: alles wat een vogelaar wil in Slovenië

Veel vogels, vogelkijkhutten, een vogelkijktoren en hete koffie: natuurreservaat Škocjanski zatok in Slovenië heeft alles wat een vogelaar kan wensen en meer. 

Slivnica: the Plum Mountain

From Mount Slivnica in Slovenia, you have the best view over the famous Lake Cerknica, but beware of the witches!

Mount Nanos: a mighty piece of rock 

For many centuries, mount Nanos forces travellers to take a detour. You might well have driven around it, but have you seen the view from the top?

Rakov Škocjan: a spectacular Karst Phenomenon

Close to the highway Ljubljana-Koper you find a beautiful small valley, which used to be a cave before the ceiling collapsed.

Bloke plateau: cold is relative

At the Bloke Plateau in Slovenia, winter lasts nine months. The rest of the year, it is just cold.

Lake Cerknica: the place which is, and then it is not

Lake Cerknica is unlike any other lake: here, the water comes and goes. Add the different seasons, weather and light, as well as the traditional use for hay-making, and you have a place which will always surprise you!

Javorniki: the Maple Mountain

At Lake Cerknica, when you turn around to the West, you see the great Javorniki Mountain Ridge: The Maple Mountain. For many centuries, the Maple Mountain was a formidable barrier, so much that the people on the other side still speak a different dialect and cook different dishes.
