Day 1: Šenk homestead – the Jezerski vrh pass (Seeberg saddle) – the Ankova planina mountain pasture – Šenk homestead

In the early afternoon, we expect you at Šenk homestead. After the check-in, you will settle in your room/apartment or set up your tent. Then you can do your first cycling tour while staying on Jezersko. Cycling ascent to the Jezerski vrh (Seeberg saddle) pass is (besides cycling through the Kokra Valley) one of the most popular cyclist destinations. Four kilometres of the winding road will bring you to the border with Austria. There you can turn around and descent back to the Valley or you can turn left at the pass and continue your tour on dirt, but a well-maintained road that will lead you to the viewing point called Rakeževo. There you will also notice a tower with a panoramic camera. But what is more important: This spot will reward you with an amazing view over the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. After soaking some sun and enjoying splendid views, you can continue your tour to the Ankova planina mountain pasture. There used to be a frontier watch house. This is also the final stop of your tour. It is time to go back to Šenk homestead. At your request, we can serve a delicious 3-course dinner, made of ingredients that we grow on our homestead. In the evening you can pamper yourself with a massage or relax in the sauna. Overnight stay.

At the crossroads turn left and cross a beautiful wooden bridge (you cannot miss it). Paved road very soon starts to ascend and leads you to the former ski slope called Mali vrh. From there you will continue on a dirt road that ascends to the Mlinarjevo sedlo pass.

At the viewing spot, there is also a bench where you can take a short break. Then the road becomes flat or even slowly descends. It leads you up above the Kokra Valley. When you arrive at the parking lot there is only one short, but steep ascent in front of you and then you arrive at the cabin called Ovčja koča (Sheep cabin).
