Lož valley – along the forest edge – a 2 hour hike

A 2 hour guided hike 

The Lož valley, Loška Dolina, is known for traditonal haystacks (ostrnice), the Snežnik castle and for the excellent opportunities to see brown bears from hides in the surrounding forests. It is also the place that I call home.

During this hike I take you along the forest edge to a quiet area where small meadows are interchanged with places where thornbushes grow. This is an area with a quiet beauty. It is also one of the best places to observe red-backed shrikes: fierce small birds which according to legend kill nine animals before they start to eat one. 

Just to be clear: during the hike, the chance to see bears is small, but we may see their footprints. If you want to see bears, check out the suggestions in the links.  

At the end of the hike, we can enjoy an optional picnic at a place with a fantastic view over most of the valley.
