Kočevsko – guided tours

Tours

Explore - Discover - Feel Kočevsko

There is always a mystery about it; partly because of its history and partly due to restricted and closed area during the 2nd World War and later, but also due to the majesty of the vast forest and their wildlife. Bear, wolf, lynx – large carnivores, that stir our imaginations live here. But the live a hidden life, and rarely cross the paths with a human.

Although this region is often associated with bears, you will find plenty of beauty there, like bubbling streams that feed the outstanding river Kolpa, beautiful points of breath-taking cliffs and area rich of magnificent wild forests.

Do not be afraid, but allow your self to see wild. WITH US!

What people say?

"First of all, the time we spend in the forest with you is my best moment of our week of vacation in Slovenia. I really like the way you bring things up, get our interests, share your scientific knowledge in a simple way. I like the way you put it for the kids also."​

Our family joined Petra to track the bear. In fact, this was a birthday present to my son. I believe this is an exellent present, means much much more to a kid than any material stuff or toy, that would make him boring after some time. When a child can feel the wilderness of untouched forests, the excitement while fallowing the bear tracks or maybe even a chance to see a bear... This is a way how a child can feel respect towards nature, its forest and inhabitants. Well, a good ponit, next to that was also we spent time together as a family and this unforgettable day will stay with us forever. All in the company of Petra, who knows this wild and secret places.

The post-conference travel you guided for us "Following the footprints of the bear" in 2018 remains a highlight for both me and Scott. We have wonderful memories that are lovely to revisit, plus a whole set of rather fabulous photos. I loved our company, I loved our destination and we especially loved being guided by you, with Stane in support. Everything was marvelous. I count myself a lucky person to have seen a European virgin forest and been with people that I hold in such great esteem and who inspire me.

I just completed a three day tour with master-guide, Petra Draskovic Pelc. She is the most knowledgable, switched-on and fun guide that I can imagine, and I have been a tour operator myself. The countryside was beautiful and full of animal sign - we did see wolf and bear prints in the mud - and we heard all sorts of owls and roe and red dear engaged in rutting behavior. The European virgin forest was fabulous. Petra went all out to make sure I and our party of four others had a top notch experience. This trip (more like a wilderness adventure) has my wholehearted recommendation.​

This was a brilliant trip and truly unique experience. It was easy to organise with the help of nature trips. All acomadation was perfect with the right balance of remoteness and comfort. But the best thing that took the trip to another level was our guide Petra. Her knowledge and understanding of the area and wildlife in it was truly exceptional. It was a pleasure to be in her company for three days and she honestly taught me so much. I recommend the trip to everyone!

Petra, thanks to you and Stane we had the perfect tour of the forest. You thought of everything to make it fascinating and enjoyable for all of us throughout, thinking of our needs, interests and comforts, and becoming a real friend to us. How many tour guides do that? Happy memories - it would be great to get back together one day.

Summer 2019 Petra guided us alongside a virgin forrest over a bear trail. This was really exciting. Her stories about forests and animals (brown bears, wolves) opened our eyes in many ways. Her personal experience in Alaska, when she was stuck all by herself hanging over a canyon holding on to bushes with just her hands for 17 hours moved us deeply. Her inner strength, energy and wisdom radiates. Thank you, Petra!

I am very proud to be a member of NATURE FIRST PHOTOGRAPHY ALLIANCE and actively promote NATURE. It is very important to recognize our responsibility.

Protecting wild places and animals begins with prioritizing the well-being of nature above my photography. 

We should reflect on the possible impact of our actions, not only when taking photos but also what we do with them!

Interpreting our heritage is crucial for all of us. To understand the world around us, to appreciate it and to safe it. 

I feel very grateful to be part of this community.

Even more, my work on large carnivore interpretation has been recognised by Interpret europe as one of the best leading examples in Europe!

We are proud BEAR FRIENDLY AMBASSADORS and actively promote bear conservation in the local area as well as good co-existing practice with large carnivore. In our tours we strive for being responsible and also educate about this our guests. We were awarded with BEAR FRIENDLY certificate in the framework of LIFE DINALP BEAR project. Our work (products and tours) were recognized as an example of good conservation and tourism practice. It is not only confirmation of our efforts but a huge responsibility for the future.
