Day 6: In the woods of Istria on a Survival Camp.

Day 7: Transfer to Mežica Eco Hotel/Farm - certified organic farm since 2000 - home grown vegetables and herbs (for Your meals) - home baked bread.

Day 8: People usually seek mountain biking enjoyment in the mountains, but we will take You to a unique passage through the mountains, along the abandoned and mysterious tunnels under Mt. Peca. What You will experience is a more than 5-kilometre guided underground cycling tour, the route of which follows an illuminated path from one valley into another, for You to enjoy a safe and unforgettable adventure.

Day 9: In 1994 the excavation of ore in Mežica mines was stopped. This means water was no longer drained from the mine so its lower parts were completely flooded all the way to the water shaft where the water flows out. Flooded excavation sites now seem like magical underground lakes. This underground adventure starts in front of the mining museum in Glančnik in Mežica. Visitors board a genuine mining train which takes from the museum through the 3.5 km long Gačnik tunnel and up to Unionski vpadnik slope mine. From here you descend for 95 m and go down the stairs that lead to water. At this point, all visitors receive the necessary protective equipment (neoprene boots, life jackets and mining helmets with a flashlight). Then you enter a flooded shaft where special kayaks for three persons are already waiting for you. Your guide leads you along a small underground river until you reach the magical underground lakes almost 700 m below the surface. Visitors can now enjoy the peaceful and pristine water and explore the underground labyrinth, submerged tunnels and excavation sites. To end your journey, you will follow a narrow passage, paddle through some minor rapids and arrive back at the starting point. After the kayak ride is completed, you will take a walk pass the abandoned underground working sites to the mining train station. Allow your guide to take you back to a time when the mine was not immersed in silence, but rather full of miners working away with different tools and machines. After a real miner’s lunch, the train will take you to the mining museum where you can admire a number of interesting collections. These display the daily lives and work of miners in the heart of Mount Peca as well as precious ores and minerals, wonderful creations of Mother Nature. Transfer and night in Slovenian capital, Ljubljana.

Day 10: We will spend last day in Ljubljana. Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is one of Europe’s smallest, most compact and charming cities. With a population of less than 300,000, it has none of the seething crowds, gridlocked traffic and overwhelming noise synonymous with most major cities. But it does have a plethora of cultural treasures, excellent restaurants and stunning architecture, all flooded with a bewitchingly languorous atmosphere. It’s located in the centre of Slovenia at the crossroads of two mountain ranges – the Dinarides and the Alps – and forms the geographical, political, cultural and infrastructural heartland of the country.
