The valley of stream Bloščica on the Bloke Plateau in Southern Slovenia is a perfect place for a relaxed nature walk. This is one of the slowest streams in Slovenia, but this is exactly what makes it so special. The stream calmly meanders through the valley, which gives the feeling that time has slowed down. Meadows along the stream are full of life. Join our 3-hour Wildflower Walk to search for wild orchids and perhaps find miniature carnivorous plants, as well as to observe dragonflies and butterflies.
From late spring to late summer, meadows are changing colours, when different plants are in full bloom. Here you can find several species of orchids, in July also the rare white-coloured subspecies of the Spotted Orchid, Dactylorhiza maculata subsp. transsilvanica. In summer many meadows turn red as they are densely covered with great burnet (Sanguisorba officinalis) and also host large populations of a beautiful butterfly Large Scarce Blue (Phengaris (Maculinea) teleius). On our walk, we will get to know several species of carnivorous plants, which have invented the most peculiar ways to trap insects.

This tour is suitable for children; however, it is up to parents to judge if they can walk the distance (or they can be carried).
