From brunch to cycling in a mine

Slovenia is a magnificent, green and diverse country. It is a country that also hides its natural beauty beneath the ground. Numerous Karst caves with mesmerising stalactites and stalagmites, mines transformed into museums and cycling paths, and wine cellars that preserve the several centuries old winemaking tradition that knows how to ripen each grape to perfection. Every corner of the country also offers food and beverages that let you experience Slovenia as we, the locals, know it.

Mining has a rich tradition in Slovenia. The nations' foundations were built on the mined coal and other minerals that facilitated progress through the centuries. Today, these are giving way to newer and more environmentally friendly sources of energy so the mines are slowly being repurposed as museums and places offering amazing experiences. And despite being a small country, Slovenia has given the world several outstanding scientists. One of them is Herman Potočnik Nordoong who made sure that his life's work could be seen in these parts as well.

the program is intended for individual passengers, groups of 2–7 persons and larger groups for which the program can be adapted

Day 1 , From updating your knowledge to your brunch and then take off on a true odyssey through the underworld

Place visiting
learn about the universe "The Problem of Space Travel – Rocket Engine" and you expedition in the slovakian underworld by bikes
Today's Highlights

To start the day off, you will learn about the universe as Herman Potočnik Noordung's book "The Problem of Space Travel – Rocket Engine" has made him a pioneer of space architecture and astronautics. His most important design, the Habitation Wheel, which is the first plan in the world for a space station, was featured in the iconic film 2001: A Space Odyssey. After checking what the gravity is like on other planets, you will take your brunch and then take off on a true odyssey through the underworld. You will cycle through former mines shafts on rented bicycles and explore the interior of Mount Peca. If you prefer water-based fun, you can also kayak in some of the mine shafts. The soil is black and so is the best chocolate. To finish off the day, we will organise a tasting at one of the best chocolate shops in Slovenia. After checking-in at the hotel, you can have dinner and then fall asleep in a warm bed.

Day 2 , Today we descend into an old mine and Nearly all cities hide secrets beneath the ground visit the Coalmining Museum of Slovenia where they will organise a real coalminer's lunch in one of the mine shafts.

Place visiting
Visit the Coalmining Museum of Slovenia where they will organise a real coalminer's lunch in one of the mine shafts. Experience a stroll that takes you back nearly 2,000 years
Today's Highlights

After breakfast, you will descend into the shaft of an old mine and visit the Coalmining Museum of Slovenia where they will organise a real coalminer's lunch in one of the mine shafts. They have a display of 18 interesting scenes from the daily life and work of the coalminers as well as a rich central collection of the Slovenian coalmining tradition where guides will explain the development of coalmining from the first finds of coal until the present day. The underworld does not only feature mines. Nearly all cities hide secrets beneath the ground. One of the historically most important cities, Celje, has managed to preserve archaeological remains from Roman times beneath its streets. The stroll that takes you back nearly 2,000 years will certainly be an unforgettable experience. However, Celje was not only important in Roman times, but also during the times of the Counts of Celje (Counts of Cilli) when the city even competed with the great Vienna. The remains of the once mighty castle still stand above the city and you will visit it after lunch to learn about one of the most influential families of the Middle Ages that was certainly the most powerful family in Slovenian history.
