Experienced Naturalist Guide
5* TripAdvisor Rating
Lake Cerknica is a seasonal lake, daily changing its shape and colours. During the rainy season (autumn and spring), this becomes the largest lake in Slovenia with a surface of over 26 square kilometres. During summer, the water retreats into an underground system of caves and the floodplain changes into colourful meadows flourishing in life. On this special nature walk, our naturalist guide will take you to a quiet part of the valley. Here, water emerges from the slopes, charging the main stream in the valley. On the way, we will see characteristic wet meadow plants, birds, butterflies and dragonflies. At the springs, we may find tracks of wild animals which come to drink to this silent corner.
From March until September. The exact route we take is depending on the water level.
The price of this 4-hour tour is 90 € for a group of 2-8 participants. For single travellers, we offer a discount of 20 % (72 €).
Easy to moderate. In the 4 hours, we will walk about 4 kilometres at an easy pace. We will follow unpaved roads and smaller paths. The whole route has almost no difference in height. This tour is suitable for children if they have the ability to walk the distance.
