Treks will lead you through wild and beautiful areas, which are offered by unspoilt nature of wider range of Iški vintgar. On our way we can see the work made by two rivers, Iška and Zala. In a million years this two rivers have created their way to the swamp Ljubljana Moors (Ljubljansko barje). There are also other very important tributaries of rivers and numerous waterfalls, small cliffs and green refreshing river pools.

We will see the remains of cultural history (mills, sawmills, churches and how people lived in the past), ethnological heritage (cooking homemade brandy and making pork and sausages) and again wonderful work of nature (ravines, caves, rocky hills).
