Day 5: Lake Bled
After breakfast the day will be dedicated to water. With a professional kayak guide, we will discover one of the pure rivers of the Julian Alps, located near Bled. After spending all the energy paddling, we will have a free afternoon at Lake Bled. We recommend you relax and enjoy the incredible nature of the area. You cannot miss a swim in Lake Bled; it will fill us with the strength necessary to continue the journey. Dinner and overnight.
Day 6: Bled - Vršic - Bovec
After breakfast, drive to Kranjska Gora, a popular ski resort in the foothills of the Julian Alps. Here the road begins to climb up to the mountain pass Vrsic at 1611 m above sea level. We'll stop at Lake Jasna, Russian chapel of the First World War, "the girl's face" and "The Window", both carved into the rock by nature. Down the valley of the river Soca, exceptional for its emerald color and its marmoreal trout. In Bovec prepare to experience fascinating canyoning or rafting (depending on water level). Dinner and overnight.
Day 7: Bovec - Notranjska Regional Park - Loški Potok
After breakfast we will continue the journey to Notranjska Regional Park, where we can find one of the largest intermittent lakes in Europe: Lake Cerknica. In the area there are; 276 bird species – one half of all European species; 45 mammal species – one half of all European species; 125 butterfly species – a little less than a third of all European species; 15 amphibian species spawn by the lake – nearly a quarter of all European amphibians. Biodiversity in this region is truly exceptional! In the afternoon we will continue to Loški Potok, our base for bear watching. In the evening we go to the woods to a designated hide to wait for the brown bear which usually feeds at this time of the day. An extraordinary and unforgettable experience. Please note that seeing bears is not guaranteed. Dinner and overnight.
