NATURE IS OUR PLAYGROUND

The idyllic Jezersko landscape changes with the seasons and thus provides a wide variety of possibilities for active leisure or meditation in nature no matter when you visit. Find your way. Feel yourself.

Adventures and exploration

Test your limits and conquer the peaks. Feel the freedom of unspoiled nature and undertake challenging mountain tours alone or with a guide. Take an inspiring walk under the stars, fill your soul with rest at Planšarsko jezero lake, capture a rare view of a wood grouse courting, or discover the hidden treasures of Jezersko with the locals.

Planinka recommends:

  • Guided tour of Jezersko with a picnic in nature
  • Wildlife photography –photographing with the professional photographer
  • Star Walk, a unique sensory experience

 

Equipment Hire

The well-kept macadam country roads are perfect for exploring Jezersko by bicycle. At Vila Planinka, you can hire conventional 24-speed mountain bikes with hydraulic disc brakes and 9-speed electric mountain bikes with all the necessary gear. And if you have any other wants and needs, there are a number of other sports equipment options to choose from.

Sports adventures

A varied terrain, natural resources and the locals’ protective attitude towards nature have created a natural haven. The green colour beckons you to go hiking, biking, fishing or play a round of tennis. The white shades meanwhile present a magnet for adrenaline junkies and for those who are looking for an idyllic and calming sound of silence.

Planinka recommends:

  • Guided ski touring from the Skuta glacier (very challenging)
  • Guided trek to Ank’s waterfalls (challenging)
  • Fishing in the Kokra river or the Planšarsko jezero lake

Ethno adventures

Remoteness from the world shaped the rich history of Jezersko. Proud and wilful locals have always coexisted with nature. It is their healer, architect and chef. They developed a sustainable philosophy, manifested in their everyday life through culinary delicacies, art, endemic animal and plant species, as well as well-preserved churches and homesteads going back several centuries.

Planinka recommends:

  • Learn about over 1200 healing plants on a relaxing walk with a professional herbalist
  • Visit the local cheese dairy and partake in Jezersko’s own culinary delights
  • Get to know the local Jezersko-Solčavska breed of domestic sheep and taste the home-made dishes

Village traditions - events

Rich folk traditions and an awareness of the need to preserve a unique cultural heritage bring locals together several times a year. Get to know their history at the oldest ethnographic event in Slovenia, spur on the bravest at the traditional New Year’s swim in the icy Planšarsko jezero lake or cheer on the competitors at one of the traditional skiing competitions.

Planinka recommends:

  • Sheep ball; the oldest Slovenian folk event (August)
  • Skiventure; a traditional ski touring adventure through three valleys (April or May)
  • Traditional New Year’s dive into the Planšarsko jezero lake (1st January)

A cup of tea / A slice of tradition

Embrace the Planinka philosophy and take a step back. Replace social networks with genuine fellowship while doing arts and crafts based on Jezersko traditions and skills transferred from generation to generation. Enrich the contents of your bag with an eco ointment, made by yourself from the local medicinal herbs, and let your woollen knitting keep you warm even after departure.

Planinka recommends:

  • Relaxing handicrafts using the wool of the Jezersko-Solčava breed of domestic sheep
  • Create organic cosmetic products from Jezersko's herbs
  • Prepare herbal infusions

Local man Davo Karničar was the first person in the world to ski from Mount Everest. He is also one of the many Jezersko natives whose training, made possible by their very own backyard, enabled them to scale the Himalayan eight-thousanders and other highest world peaks. Take advantage of Jezersko natural bounty for effective fitness or height preparations.
