Postojna Cave is a cave that can destroy you. Both Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle in Postojna Cave Park are regarded as national treasures of Slovenia. First of all, Postojna Cave is one of the most fascinating and impressive caves in the world. This place is huge!

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is located in the Karst region, a limestone plateau that stretches from southwestern Slovenia to Italy. It is one of the most beautiful places in Slovenia and one of the highest caves in the world.

Cave biking in Mount Peca

Koroška is a treasure trove of surprises in northern Slovenia, a true paradise for hikers and mountain bikers. You can ride a bicycle through the tunnel of an abandoned mine, or even kayak through the tunnel for a truly unique adventure.

During more than three centuries of mining, more than 800 kilometers of tunnels were built on the deposit between Mount Peca and Mount Uršlja Gora. You can reach this part by train, and if you are adventurous, you can go underground by bike or kayak.

You can also ride a bicycle through the mountains of the Koroška area. During the two and a half-hour adventure, put on warm clothes and riding gloves, a helmet and headlights, and ride with your guide over 5 kilometers underground, from valley to valley.

After the closure of the Mežica mine, water is no longer drawn from the mine. These locations now look like magical underground lakes. In front of the Glančnik Mining Museum in Mežica, you will board a real mine cart and take you 3.5 kilometers into the tunnel. There are kayaks waiting for you, and then you paddle along a small underground river to a small lake nearly 700 meters below the surface.

In the underground of Mount Peca, you will be provided with a traditional miner’s meal, just like the miner’s meal before going to work. Enjoy some buckwheat žganci with crispy crust, bacon, rye bread and latte.

In fact, not only the Mežica mine, but the entire Koroška is a paradise for cyclists, and the route is suitable for almost any age and level.
