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 is calmly meandering through the valley, giving the feeling that the time has slowed down. Meadows along the stream are full of life. In a company of our naturalist guide, you will observe dragonflies and butterflies, search for wild orchids and even miniature carnivorous plants.
From late spring to late summer, meadows are chaining 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 is the shortest tour we are offering. We walk a circular path, which is only 1,5 km long. As we walk slowly to explore nature and take photos, the whole walk takes about 2 hours. We walk on level terrain, so this walk is also suitable for families with smaller children. As we believe that children should be given the opportunity to experience nature, children up to age 14 when accompanied by at least one adult are joining our one-day tours free of charge.
