Magical springs of lake Cerknica – a 2 hour hike

A 2 hour guided hike

Lake Cerknica is like no other lake. Locals say that sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn’t (there). During heavy rain, the water rises in as few as three days’ time. Without rain, the lake empties through the limestone underground. Only a few weeks later, the water is gone and in summer, it is often entirely dry. Thanks to its fluctuating water level, Lake Cerknica is an extraordinary habitat in which many animal and plant species thrive. 

During our guided hike, we visit one of the least-known parts of Lake Cerknica, where the main karstic springs are located. How the lake looks and what we see depends on the water level and is a surprise, even to me, altough I go here rather often. The hike itself is relatively easy and goes along the forest edge on almost level ground.
