4 hours in the cave (10 hours total)
This Cave kayak adventure starts at our office in Bled or any other pre arranged location. First we drive to the mining museum in Glančnik, Mežica where path leads us to abandoned lead mine in wonderful valley of Mežica.
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. 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.
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 when it was 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 the wonderful creations of Mother Nature.
Cave Kayaking is an obvious choice if you are looking for a unique experience while in Slovenia. The ride in to the mine is an adventure by itself! The local guide made the whole experience really exciting. We were taken good care, the only thing to keep in mind are warm clothes because the temperature in the cave is constant 11 degrees! Thanks again!
Cave kayak experience 650 meters underground in the old mines was amazing, the lakes and tunnels with crystal clear water were unforgettable. Our guide was amazing and Mamut Slovenia organised everything perfectly.
