Situated on Medvedje Brdo (Bear Hill), the Šinkovc excursion farm has a marvelous view of the Julian and Kamniške Alps, the Karavanke Mountains, the Polhov Gradec hills, the Ljubljana barje moor, and the Trnovski forests.
The hostess serves a variety of traditional delicacies such as homemade salami, pršut (prosciutto), pork, beef, rabbit, young goat, Idrija-style žlikrofi, and good white wines or homemade apple juice.
Children can play in the playground in the yard and pet the tame deer and other farm animals. A hiking path and bicycle trail lead to the nearby marshland valley of Žejna dolina, and you can follow the Žejski stream until it disappears into a sinkhole at Kmetovo Brezno. Close by are also fascinating outing spots such as Hotedršica where an old mill is perched above a chasm, the mining town of Idrija with its lacemaking tradition, the church of Sv. Katarina dating back to the 11th century, and an old farm house turned museum dating back to 1721 with its ambience of days gone by.
