Explore the submerged part of the Mine by Kayak ! You can visit the submerged parts of the mine with magical subterranean lakes by kayak and experience the feeling of silence and complete darkness!!!
Lead mining under the mountain Peca began already in Roman times, the written records show, that from 1665 until the end of the previous century, when the mine was finally closed down, 900 km of tunnels were dug under the mountains of Koroška region. Today Tourism Mine and Museum Podzemlje Pece is one of the main attractions of Geopark Karavanke (member of UNESCO heritage) and the place for unique underground adventures.
More than half of Mežica mine tunnels, from 12 to 20th level are due to closure of water pumps now flooded and here our adventure begins. Peddling through tunnels where mining trains were pulling the ore wagons, discovering the underground lake in once leaded rock and discovering the labyrinth of tunnels while peddling in fresh drinking mountain water.
Summer, fall, winter, spring, rain, snow, it doesn’t matter our adventure begins at the Mining museum in Mežica, as miners once were, we are now seated in old mining train and driven in to the core of mountain Peca. After about 15 minutes the train stops and it’s time for new adventure. From 8th level to 12 level we need to overcome around 500 stairs to reach the water. Changing to neoprene boots and safety west we are ready to jump in to the water. Peddling for about an hour in the labyrinth of tunnels, in total silence and darkness gives us the feeling of being lost in time. Then we return through the maze of tunnels and chambers to the 8th level where the train awaits to take us back to the surface.
The entire trip takes approx. 4 hours. The age limit is 12 years.
