THINGS TO DO


RAFTING ON THE RIVER KRKA

It is possible to go rafting down the River Krka from Zagradec to Šmihel (6 km) or to Žužemberk (12 km). Rafting on the River Krka is not too demanding and is available to anyone who is healthy and able to swim. The Krka River Valley, with its inseparable intertwining of natural and cultural heritage, represents a unique symbol of Dolenjska. The rich heritage of the former mills and sawmills, well-preserved wooden bridges, castles and small towns and villages along the banks, as well as the naturally preserved river, which gives shelter to numerous plant and animal species will surely leave a lasting impression while a trip down the River Krka will be an unforgettable experience as well.

BEAR WATCHING

Naturally, the king of Slovenian forests is the brown bear. Because of all this pristine nature that surrounds us, the area is undoubtedly a very popular stamping ground for the brown bear. Seeing this formidable animal in person is quite a thrill. As of 2015, it is possible to observe the brown bear in its natural habitat in Loški potok. The local hunters will take you to their favourite hunting stand that can hold up to 6 people.

SCENIC FLIGHTS

Anyone who wants to see the beautiful town of Novo Mesto and the river that envelops it from a bird's eye view, can only do so from an airplane. Luckily, the town has an airfield located in Prečna, which offers scenic flights. You can fly up in a motor plane for shorter or longer scenic flights. Looking at Novo Mesto, the River Krka, hills planted with vines and the wooded Gorjanci hills from an aircraft is a beautiful experience. The more courageous ones and those with appropriate skills can also opt for a parachute jump and flying in a glider. Upon request, the pilots from Prečna can fly you over Triglav or Piran.
