Active Family Package
No cars – by bike
Are you looking to disconnect from city life? Do you want to spend an active weekend, and recharge your batteries in a green environment with endless possibilities for both exploration and relaxation? You can explore Lake Cerknica, Cross Cave, and Bloke Plain without having to turn the key in your ignition. All you need to do is hop a train, travel from Ljubljana towards the coast, get off at Rakek, and meet us there. You can also come to Rakek by car as it is a mere 5 minutes’ drive from the motorway exit (Unec).
PROGRAMME for a 3-day trip:
DAY 1: After arriving to Rakek, take a bike ride past the famous witch mountain of Slivnica and into Žerovnica, where you can enjoy a traditional local lunch at the Logar Farm Stay (supplement).After lunch, provided that the water levels are sufficiently high, take a canoe trip on Lake Cerknica or the Stržen Stream (supplement). If the lake is dry, you can visit it by bike. If you have time left, you can also see the model of Lake Cerknica, after which you can cycle over to Nova vas to dine at Hostel 24.
Hostel 24 Bloke, which was once an elementary school and a family home, is a renovated hostel located at the heart of the breath-taking nature and the local community.

On your return, dinner will be waiting for you at the hostel, where you will also spend your second night.
