On the very same spot where you took a boat ride in spring or a stroll in summer, there is ice in winter.
When the water freezes, Lake Cerknica turns into an appealing ice-skating rink. If temperatures drop early when the lake is still full, the frozen surface offers unimagined opportunities to skate – with considerable caution, of course. The best spots for ice skating are right next to the village of Dolenje Jezero (walk a few meters from the parking lot to the ice) and at the lake's section called Ribiški kot (Fishermen's Corner). Because water in the Stržen stream rarely freezes, do not approach the stream bed too close, as the frozen layer is thinner there.
