DAY 1 : ŽELJNSKE CAVES AND FIRST ADVENTURES
Our adventure begins at Kočevje Lake – we gather, introduce each other, check whether we have all the necessary equipment and briefly present the three-day adventure. We start our journey equipped with all the necessary information. Our first destination are the Željnske Caves which offered shelter to people 20,000 years ago. The path leads on to the forest reserve Pugled – Žiben where we will witness the cultural landscape which people had cultivated and nourished for 400 years and abandoned during the turmoil of the World War II. We will conclude the day in the forest hut with a snack, followed by a traditional feast (fish, potatoes, meat), prepared on the coals.
DAY 2 : THE VIRGIN FOREST RAJHENAVSKI ROG AND THE QUEEN OF ROG
We will climb the Mount Rog (1,099 m), the highest part of our journey, and visit the lookout tower at the top. Other highlights of the day are the saw Roška, the virgin forest Rajhenavski Rog where you will find contact with prehistoric times, inner peace and tranquillity of the centennial giants that will charm you and the fir tree – the Queen of Rog (50 m high, 160 cm thick, 500 years old). We will conclude our adventure in the forest hut with traditional dishes on the coals.
DAY 3 : EXPERIENCE THE FOREST RESERVE PRELESNIKOVA KOLIŠEVKA
The forest reserve Prelesnikova koliševka is a 70 m deep hollow cave covered with primeval virgin pine forest and diverse vegetation which can otherwise be found only in a cold climate, mountains, or in the far North.
