Enjoy Your Day Out

Green Slovenia is Europe's biggest nature & adventure park!
Right now, you probably won't believe the huge choice you have for places to see and things to do just a short walk, drive or cycle from the Lodge. We enjoy seeing the look of shock on visitors' faces when they arrive for just a couple of days and have to choose  from so many world class caves, for example, when they had maybe heard of just one. The list goes on and on and on and the wonderful thing is that there really is something for everyone here.
The other great thing about our recommended trips, is that you will get to see the real heart of Slovenia, whether it be meeting warm and friendly local people, or walking for hours on a countryside trail and seeing no people, but a lot of cows or deer! In a country the size of Wales, there are so many different micro climates, geological and geographical differences that you will be amazed at how varied your day out will be.
So the choice is yours. Some guests will prefer to be accompanied, some will go exploring alone, some prefer a mix. We can tell you ticket prices, distances, opening times, recommend places to park, eat & have coffee and as many tips as you wish, to help you have a special day out.
And when you have read this page, why not check out our SECRET PLACES TO VISIT page which shows a growing, exciting list of hidden places that you might like to know something about.

Should You take a Local Guide?
When you add up the cost of petrol, car rental, time lost etc, then it really isn't so expensive to take a guide. We have organised a team of trusted and experienced local guides who will quite simply light up your holiday. They will walk, cycle or drive with you. They will explain the culture and history of where you visit and will tell you about the flowers, trees or wildlife you are looking at. These things are often missed when you go alone. But above all you will get the chance to have a chat and experience the incredibubble warmth and humour of the Slovenian character. (And here are some of our guides below).
