Hike: The valley of natural bridges

nedelja 7. 05. 2023

What happens when the cave ceiling collapses?


The Rakov Škocjan valley, this picturesque karst valley was created when ceiling of the cave collapsed, will surely inspire you and leave you breathless. On a five-kilometre-long hike between two natural bridges that rise about 40 meters above the ground, you will learn about the karst phenomena and cool off in the shade of the trees that surround the valley by the Rak stream. 

The meeting point is at 10 A.M. at the parking lot next to the Rakov Škocjan hotel, where you will meet with your local guide Natalija Vrhunc. From here you will follow the educational path, on which you will see the Big and Little Natural Bridge, the valley through which the Rak stream flows, the ruins of the church of St. Cantianus, after which the valley got its name, springs that spew water after the rain and many other things. Towards the end of the circular hike, a little snack will wait for you at the Little Natural Bridge.
