Itinerary

Meeting
  • This Cave kayak adventure starts at our office in Bled or any other prearranged location. First we drive to the mining museum in Glančnik, Mežica where path leads us to abandoned lead mine in wonderful valley of Mežica.
Mining train
  • You board a genuine mining train which rides from the museum through the 3.5 km long Gačnik tunnel and up to Unionski vpadnik slope Cave.
  • From here you descend for 95 m and go down the stairs that lead to water. At this point you all receive the necessary protective equipment. 
Kayaking
  • Then you enter a Cave where special three person kayaks are already waiting for you.
  • Your Cave Kayak guide leads you along a small underground river until you reach the magical underground lakes almost 700 m below the surface.
  • You can now enjoy the peaceful and pristine water and explore the underground cave labyrinth, submerged tunnels and excavation sites.
  • You will end your Cave Kayak journey by following a narrow passage, paddling through some minor rapids and arriving back at the starting point. 
History
  • After the Cave Kayak ride you will walk past the abandoned underground working sites to the mining train station.
  • Allow your guide to take you back to a time when the mine was not immersed in silence but full of miners working away with different tools and machines. 
  • After a proper miner’s lunch, the train will take you to the mining museum where you can admire a number of interesting collections.
  • These display the daily lives and work of miners in the heart of Mount Peca as well as precious ores and minerals - all wonderful creations of Mother Nature.
