Wednesday, 03/21/2018 – Morning program

Excursion to Mežica (SLO)

Your choice – Underground biking

Mountain bikes were made for exploring the mountains, but in UNESCO Global Geopark Karavanke/Karawanken you can ride your bike through the mountain. Led by a guide and equipped with helmets and flashlights you can safely ride from one valley to another on a more than 5 kilometers long underground path under Mount Peca/Petzen. Prepare to experience an unforgettable adventure.

or Underground kayaking

In 1994, when the excavation of lead and zinc ore in Mežica mine was stopped, water was no longer drained from the mine so its lower parts were completely flooded. Guide will lead you along a small underground river until you will reach the magical underground lake. Explore the underground labyrinth and do some paddling almost 700 m below the surface! This will be the most unique experience for you ever! It will leave you breathless!
