Rakov Škocjan – the collapsed cave – a 4 hour hike

A 4 hour guided hike

A most spectacular landscape of steep cliffs and msyterious caves!

Once upon a time, there was a huge cave. Slowly, the cave became larger and larger until eventually the cave became so large that the entire ceiling collapsed. A stream dissolved the remaining rocks, and a lovely valley was formed. But this isn’t entirely in the past, because the proces still continues and at the “beginning and end” of the valley, where we find a most spectacular landscape with caves and cliffs.

Understandably, these places are frequented by both Slovene and international tourists. But there is more: mysterious places just around the corner, which most people miss. On this guided hike, we visit both the known and these not-so-well known places and you hear everything about this wonderfull valley.
