The macadam and field roads go through a mosaique of meadows, fields and irrigation ditches, which offer refuge to a variety of rare animal and plant species. As many of Europe’s most endangered wildlife species live here, a large share of Ljubljansko barje is protected by the Natura2000 project.

The highlight of the tour features the canyon of the Iška River: absorbing its pristine nature that surrounds the fresh and clear waters adds a touch of relaxation to the experience. It is also an ideal place for a picnic, which can be organized on request. This half-day tour can be run in all seasons, except for winter, for groups from 6 to 50 people.
