Half-day tour near Ljubljana, pick-up in Ljubljana

Just 20 minutes from Slovenia’s capital we explore the southern rim of the Ljubljana Marshes, a Nature Park of 150 km2 and home to hundreds of species of birds, colorful butterflies and other animals due to its great landscape diversity. Our half-day together starts with a forest hike to a beautiful viewpoint at 794 m to admire Triglav, both Julian and Karavanke Alps, while also the neighboring Mt. Krim, the tallest in the Krim hills, ascending as much as 800 m above the plains of the Ljubljana Marshes. From there we delve several kilometers into the Iška Gorge to hike along a refreshing river. We continue to a cute church of St. Ana, one of many churches dominating scenic hillocks of Slovenia, and from there to the Podpeč Lake where we finally relax with a cool drink by the water.

The tour is appropriate for anyone.
