Explore one of the oldest and most remarkable caves in Slovenia by venturing the deepest parts of the cave, closed off to mainstream tourism. It’s a first-hand experience of cave climbing and descending by rope in small groups under the watchful eye of professional caving instructors. Located near Lake Bled, this amazing place invites visitors to discover a marvelous world under the surface of Slovenia’s picturesque Alpine region.

Accompanied by professional guides, you will embark on an hour-long very steep up-slope of the north-western edge of the Jelovica Plateau through a wooded wilderness. This forested area is also called ‘the rainforest’, as forestry works are forbidden and nature reigns free.

The entrance to the cave under the giant rocky hill called Babji Zob (Hag’s Tooth) has a rock-shelter, perfect for a snack break. It’s here that you will learn the basic techniques of caving in order to tackle the underground terrain that follows. Definitely not suitable for the claustrophobic and fainthearted, but an absolutely safe activity that presents you with a unique opportunity to see the subterranean workings of nature up close and personal.

Remember, extreme caving means you will enter inaccessible parts of the cave, which cannot be done without proper gear and scrambling skills. You will be taught basic rope handling techniques that will allow you to explore the cave safely. It’s a highly adventurous experience, but don’t worry, our guides will watch over you every step of the way and make sure you’re comfortable.

Descending down the 40-metre underground gallery where you’ll get the chance to put your newly learnt caving techniques to the test. Passing fantastic formations with calcite crystals and rare snail-shaped dripstones, you make your way deeper into the underground by scaling walls with ropes and dangling in the cave’s mysterious abyss. The cave was discovered by chance 200 years ago by a local villager and plenty of new tunnels and passages have been discovered since, allowing you to explore this incredible place to the fullest. While traversing down the slippery formations, you will learn a lot about the cave and the wildlife that lives there.

A fantastic combination of adrenaline and cave exploration, this tour presents you with a unique opportunity to witness the subterranean workings of nature up close and personal.

We took the 4-hour "City Bike Tour Ljubljana" with our guide, Andrej. Andrej was fabulous: filled with informative, historical, and humorous details. The ride allowed us to see many parts of Ljubljana in a short time, and Andrej tied it all together. The ride was not too difficult (we are seniors). The lunch stop was perfect (Slovenian charcuterie, plus a pour of local wine): enough to eat, water to drink, and a convenient WC. We recommend this tour (and Andrej) without reservation. We could not hope for a better experience.

It was really wonderful experience! Luka our guide is professional and passionately guiding us to the beautiful Pokljuka! We are beginner, but thanks to him, we were able to complete the snowshoeing safely. We highly recommend this!

This was a truly amazing experience! We really enjoyed our beautiful Seven Lakes Valley hike with an overnight stay at a mountain hut. The alpine scenery of mountains throughout the hike was simply stunning especially the crystal clear emerald lakes, which are absolutely breathtaking! The cosy mountain hut was a lifesaver after a long day’s hike, dinner was hearty and delicious, atmosphere was lively and the beds were warm and comfortable - overall a great experience! What made it all the more enjoyable was being in the safe hands of our brilliant guide, Klemen who was not only very experienced, professional and knowledgeable, but he was also extremely helpful and accommodating. He went out of his way to take care of our needs during the journey. From the start, he was very responsive and proactive in helping us arrange our itinerary in the best way possible to maximise our time there. We also did a private rock climbing session with him after the hike and it was awesome! We definitely enjoyed our time in Slovenia with him and highly recommend going with this company and a private guide like him if you are looking for a customised trip.

While in Slovenia we really wanted to go cave kayaking. We had booked in weeks in advance, but when we arrived another company cancelled our trip as it was off season and they didn't have enough people interested in doing it. We rang around some other companies and kept hearing the same thing, until we contacted Slovenia Activities. They usually need a minimum of four people but said they would make an exception for us (there were two of us). They arranged transport and that's when we met our driver Peter. It was a long drive, nearly two hours, but didn't feel long at all! Peter was so chatty and funny that the time flew by. We were taken back by all the beautiful scenery so he offered multiple times to make a stop so we could get some photos, he also bought us some bottles of water. The actual trip is quite physically active so you need to be on reasonable shape as there are a lot of steep stairs in the cave. You start off going in a miners train, and then go to a to where you put some waterproof overalls on. If you have a shoe size over 38 then the overalls have a waterproof pocket at the front where you can keep your phone. The actually kayaking was fun, you are allowed to explore it on your own and at the end of that part you go down a mini waterfall! Then after that you explore the mine and end on a miners meal of a meat platter, some bread and some spreadable cheese. On the journey back Peter was a delight again, and let us stop at McDonalds to get some dinner.

Had a great photo tour around Ljubljana with Nejc. He understands a lot about photography and also about the city and history of Slovenia. Visited a lot of photo spots in 4+ hours and he was also willing to share his knowledge around how to get great photos. He is also very friendly and reliable. Thank you so much Nejc and Slovenia Activities. Highly recommended!
