Yes, there is a small fridge in the common area under the hut for storing food.

For safety reasons, open fires are not allowed on the campsite. Most summers are dry and the fire risk here is high. However, if you visit us during the cooler months, we can arrange a fire. You can prepare your own food in our shared kitchen, which has 3 hobs (two burners each), basic cooking utensils, plates, cutlery, glasses, and cups.
1. Is it possible to go swimming near the campsite?
There is no official bathing site in the Loška Valley, but there are some alternative options. The most suitable for tourists is Volčje lake, which is a tourist bathing site located in Bloki, a 30-minute drive from the campsite. There is also the possibility of swimming in certain areas of Lake Cerknica, which takes between 20 and 30 minutes by car.
2. Do you offer bike rentals?
We do not have bicycles at the campsite, but there is a possibility to rent electric bicycles (2 bicycles) at the Rihtar Homestead Institute and 5 bicycles at the TIC Lož. For larger groups (10 or more people), we can organize the delivery of regular bicycles to the campsite.
3. What activities are available for those who like to walk?
If you like hiking, you've come to the right place, as the Loška Valley offers excellent hiking trails that take you through the valley or to beautiful viewpoints. The first of these is Križna gora. The church is situated on top of an 857 meter high hill, from which you can see the Loška Valley, the Cerknica Field, and the Bloch Plateau. The next location is Gornje Poljane, which is situated at 1056 meters and is the highest place in southern Slovenia, offering a beautiful view of the Loška Valley. If you enjoy mountain walking, you will be delighted by the trail to Mount Snežnik, which at 1796 meters is the highest Slovenian non-alpine mountain, and if you are lucky enough to catch good weather, there is a chance that you will be able to see the Adriatic Sea from the top. For those who want to admire the Loška Valley up close, we recommend the Circular Route through the Loška Valley, which takes you in a circle through the most interesting parts of our region.
4. What are the opportunities for cycling?
Road and gravel cyclists can find their own way to our region, as there are forest paths leading from the campsite to Babno polje, where you can take a tour and a guided tour with Alenka Veber from Rihtar's Homestead (https://rihtarjeva-
domacija.si/). A popular place for cyclists is Mašun, which is a small tourist village below Mount Snežnik, where there is also a restaurant and many high altitude viewpoints in the surrounding area. The Loška valley borders Cerknica and Bloka, which are known for their natural beauty and are reached by good roads and dirt tracks. There are plenty of opportunities for longer hikes, and thanks to the proximity and ease of crossing the border, you can now easily head to Croatia. Interesting destinations in this direction are the Gorski Kotar, but you can also go to the sea, for example to the island of Krk or the town of Rijeka.
5. Do you have any other sleeping options besides tents and caravans?
Yes, you can sleep on the pergola (the space above the summer kitchen). The whole space is divided into 5 smaller, partially separated spaces. Each can sleep two or three people. Sleep on normal beds or hay.
