Day 1: Šenk homestead

In the afternoon we expect you on Šenk homestead. After the check-in, you will settle in your room/apartment or set up your tent. You can spend the rest of the afternoon actively and visit some of the most popular spots of Jezersko. Not far from our homestead there is a church of St. Andrew. From the church, you just follow the main road and after a couple of minutes of walk, you will come to the mineral water spring (Jezerska slatina) that is known near and far. The mineral water contains a lot of magnesium and is highly recommended to those with cardiovascular diseases. Return to the main road and continue straight forward. You will see a crossroads and a sign for Lake Planšar (Planšarsko jezero). At the crossroads, turn left and the road will lead to this lovely heart-shaped lake, the most visited spot of Jezersko. Passing the Lake you will find yourself in the part of Jezersko, called Siberia (Sibirija). When you arrive at the beginning of the Ravenska Kočna thematic path, turn left and continue towards farms Kropivnik and Jenk. A part of farm Jenk is also a majestic 500-years old building named Jenk's barracks (Jenkova kasarna), now an ethnographic museum. Right after Jenk farm turn left and you are back at Šenk homestead.

The trail is very well marked (just follow signs in colours of the Austrian flag – red and white). For the ascent, you can choose a shorter, but a bit more demanding trail that starts at the forest road and then leads you across a meadow and along the ridge to the north-western side of the mountain. Some parts of the trail are a bit exposed and require more caution. At the top of Mt. Pristovški Storžič stands a big iron cross. The view from the top is splendid: You can see all over the Valley of Jezersko, neighbouring Austria (Kärnten), the Karawanken and even the Julian Alps. For your descent, you can take the same trail or choose another, less demanding trail (past »Pastirkov vrh« and »Skalarjeva planina«). Return to Šenk homestead.
