Discover some of the fantastic secret places we have found for you to visit in a day or half day trip from the Lodge in Slovenia, north Italy, Istria & north Croatia. Just like us, many of these you might have never heard about before.. some like Venice or Rijeka, you might be amazed are so close, but all are hidden treasures just waiting to surprise you!

you will wander past these "Hobbit" huts with stunning Alpine vistas

Heaven on Earth aka Big Mountain Meadow

If you came to Green Slovenia with some hazy ideas about a nice lake with a church on it and a big cave somewhere and a pretty castle built into the side of a mountain, then when you arrive at Lipizzaner Lodge you are in for a very big shock.. cos we are gonna tell you about 100's and 100's of amazing places that you can get excited about.. and this one is possibly the best of them all.. and that is saying something indeed!

We can think of no better place to spend a warm clear day than on the flat, meadow like top of a 1,666m mountain with views all over Slovenia and across to the neighbouring Alps as cowbells jingle around a wooden hut "Hobbit" village where the inhabitants come over the summer to make a bit of cheese.

This place is so high, so relaxing and so amongst the clouds we had to call it Heaven on Earth. The mountain's name is Velika Planina, which means Big Meadow mountain and you get here by cable car and a medium demanding walk up the main track or just up the slopes. There are no steep drops once you leave the cable car and so if you are not too keen on high drops, but like being high up, then this is also the place for you!

A lot more to come..
