Among the herdsmen on Velika Planina

Add to MyVisit Add to MyVisit

Have an authentic experience of traditional herdsmen life in a picturesque mountain environment not far from Ljubljana.

Visit Velika Planina, one of the most beautiful Slovenian high mountain plateaus, where you can still meet real herdsmen on green pastures, while the pleasant aromas of sour milk, buckwheat žganci and alpine tea waft from the typical cottages.

Listen to the sound of the herdsman's horn, breathe the fresh mountain air and enjoy the stunning views of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. The mountains will take care of your body and the local dishes of the Taste Kamnik brand will satisfy your appetite.

The price includes: transfer and guidance, cable car and double-chairlift ride, admission fee to Preskar's Museum, tasting of cottage cheese štruklji (rolled dumplings) on Velika Planina, lunch with traditional dishes of the Taste Kamnik brand
