Surprising natural phenomena will be revealed to you on this trip, aswell as life of the three karst fields inhabitants. The fields are strung along the eastern margins of the vast Javorniki - Snežnik forests: The Cerknica, the Lož and the Babno polje fields.
You will be fascinated by the Cerknica lake, the largest European vanishing lake, at the beggining of your guided tour. Its mysterious rhytm of appearing, vanishing and reappearing is demonstrated with the aid of the scale model at Jezerski hram (guest house) in the Dolenje Jezero (Lower Lake) village. You will have a possibility to admire the magical landscape between Javorniki and Slivnica (hilltop) when driving at the edges of the lake with a starting point at T'DOLENJ farm, where the hosts will be awaiting you with home-made spirits and liquors. From there you will follow the ancient paths toward the Lož field, where you will enter the karst world by the Obrh brook with its sinkhole, swallow hole and the Golobina cave sinkhole system at the Dane village. At the Kandare homestead, an ecological farm in Dane, you will get familiar with the rural way of life. Pushing the southern margins of Lož field, the Snežnik castle with authentic 19th century furnishings represents the most sophisticated monument of cultural heritage in Loška dolina (Lož valley). Beside the castle viewing, you will also have a chance of inspecting The Hunting collection and Dormouse Museum in the manor house. You will head further south to the highest of the three fields in the Inner Carniola country - Babno polje (field). Due to its specific positionning it is renowned as the coldest inhabited place in Slovenia. Its historic position of being a "border town" is a little less known..
We will conclude a pleasant day with a tasty home dinner in one of our taverns.
The program can be adapted to particular wishes of the group.
