Magical Springs of Lake Cerknica

Gorenje Jezero - 1384 Cerknica (NOTR.) - Slovenia
In a company of naturalist guide visit a quiet valley where water emerges from the slopes to fill Lake Cerknica.

During this 4-hour hike, we follow the forest edge towards the largest springs of Lake Cerknica. After heavy rain and when the snow melts in spring, an incredible amount of water comes out of the underground, on the lower edge of the hills. Even when there is no water appearing at all, the springs are a special place to see, because bare gravel and rocks mark where the water was flowing before. This is a quiet place and often, animals come to drink. We may not see them, but we will search for their tracks: deer, fox, badger and even brown bear often leave their footprints in the sand. The quiet forest edge, with water nearby, attracts birds as well. Woodpeckers are regularly seen and if we are lucky, we may observe black storks searching for fish and frogs.

With a water surface area up to 28 km², Lake Cerknica is the largest lake in Slovenia. That is, sometimes, because the water level in this intermittent lake changes from day to day. In most years, the lake is full of water in spring and autumn. In summer, it is often completely dry. The winter water level depends on snow, rain and the temperature and is unpredictable. This changing water level means that you never quite know what to expect at Lake Cerknica. And this is why our Magical springs of Lake Cerknica tour is never the same!
