Kayaking adventure through the underground of Mount Peca – Slovenia Unique Experience
The adventure begins in the Karavanke information centre of the UNESCO Global Geopark, where experienced guides will welcome you. Equipped with a helmet and a flash light, you will take a real mining train along the 3.5 km long Glančnik tunnel to the Unionski vpadnik, where you will take the stairs to go 95 m below the water level. In the changing room, the guide will distribute the protective equipment (boots-pants made of neoprene and a non-sinkable jacket), and you will continue your journey to the kayaks which will be waiting for you almost 700 m below the surface of the earth. After exploring the underground labyrinth, flooded tunnels and excavations, you will return to the starting point through a narrow tunnel and over a small rapid, and walk back to the mining train stop. Before leaving the mine, a “miner’s” snack will be waiting for you.
The entire tour lasts 4 hours. There can be a maximum of 10 people in the group. The age limit is 10 years, and the minimum height is 150 cm. Visitors must wear appropriate clothes and shoes. We recommend spare clothes for the mine which you can leave in the dressing room in the mine. The temperature in the mine is 10 °C.
Advance booking is required!
