Summer adventures in the Cerkno hills

Idyllic hills make Cerkno one of the most popular family destinations for a winter holiday, but in recent years the green forests and trails have become a great summer getaway. Awarded with the Silver label, Cerkno is now member of the prestigious family of Slovenia Green Destinations. Explore its pristine nature by bike or on foot and try the Forest Selfness.

Visit the green world of Cerkno, a landscape mysteriously shaped by nature in the west of Slovenia. Spend an unforgettable day in the Cerkno Bike and Fun Park. Why not unleash the most adventurous and the most romantic potentials all at once? Enjoy a ride along the top bike trails surrounded by green forests and reward yourself with a romantic picnic in the unspoilt nature.

In need of some more peace? Try the innovative “Selfness” programme, exclusively based on natural materials and local products. The Cerkno Forest Selfness programme received the national Snovalec (Creator) Award for one of the most innovative programs in Slovenia. The guided natural sound therapy in hammocks beneath the treetops will fill your body and soul with healthy energy.

Cerkno is not only famous for its natural treasures, it also boasts an enviable cultural heritage. The trail of Slovenian soldiers from WWI still leads to a hidden hospital; the Franja Partisan Hospital is a cultural monument of national importance, and is listed on UNESCO`s Tentative List of World Heritage Sites. Thanks to its symbolic value in history, the Franja Hospital received the European Heritage label in 2015.
