Description of Caving Ljubljana

Become a proper caver and venture into the awe-inspiring caves near Slovenia’s capital and take a break from reality by experiencing the silent tranquillity only a cave can offer.

This caving expedition takes you to a system comprising of two awesome caves (Mala and Velika Pasica) located a 40-minute drive from the centre of Ljubljana. The big cave (Velika Pasica) has passages of around 125 m in length and just over 10 m deep and contain remarkable biological diversity. About 40 subterranean species of animals have been discovered. It is the only Slovenian cave where cave meteorology and cave studies are currently underway. Just a few dozen metres away is the smaller cave (Mala Pasica). It’s accessible mainly by crawling on the belly, sometimes even over small puddles of water, which is a unique and interesting experience. The total length of the cave’s passages is around 70 m. Both caves come in an abundance of gorgeous dripstones and bizarre underground sculptures. During WWII, the caves served as a shelter for the villagers during the shelling of the nearby village.

Your caving trip will last an approx. 2-5 hours, depending on the size of the group and the physical fitness of the group’s members, as there will be a certain amount of climbing, crawling and sliding involved. Our caving parties are kept to a small number of people to make the caving experience even more authentic.

I didnt know there were caves so close to Ljubljana. The approach is easy and there are two caves very close together. I liked the first one better but they were both beautiful and great fun. Thank you!

This is so different from a normal visit to a cave. You get to be the real cave explorer for a day, with the headlam crawling through the narrow caves, great fun for young and old!

I felt a bit claustrophobic at first but my kids (9 and 11) loved it so I relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The guide is very experienced and made us all feel very safe and secure. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.
