HIKING TO STABANSKA LAKES
Hike as much as you like:) We will reach Little Stabansko Lake on 4.5km while the Big Stabansko Lake lies on 1,325 m above the sea level. The bravest ones can continue to mountain Bioč on 2,396m or Volujak 2,337m.
After a rich, delicious breakfast, start your 25 minutes drive from the Waterfall Rafting Center through the Piva Canyon to Plužine and meet your hiking guide in the Tourist Organization. Additional 15 minutes drive continues along the Piva Lake, over the Vrbnica river to Stabna, the village after which the lakes were named.
It is 4.5km from the starting point of our tour to the Small Lake. Halfway along the route, we will come across broad meadows and the World War II monument to victims of fascism. The initial 100 meters of the way are rough and bushy, and then it continues into a gravel road towards the katuns of the Lakes. On passing the katuns, the path briefly takes us through a beech forest, and then – the beautiful Little Stabansko Lake appears in the valley. Depending on the time of year, the water level goes up to 15m. The lake’s altitude is 1,194m, with an area of about 10,500m2, average depth of about 4m and length of 160m.
After a short break, we continue hiking toward the Volujak Mountain along some 500 meters of a beautiful path through a tall beech forest. Before descending to the valley where the Big Lake is located, there is a couple of dozens of meters high ridge on our path. The Big Stabansko Lake’s altitude is 1,325m, with an area of about 42,000 m2, depth of up to 9m and length of 300m. At high water levels, the water from the Big Lake flows into the Little Lake. The Big Lake is an authentic pearl of nature, with its emerald green color and intact nature. The summer temperature of the water in the lakes is 16-20°C, making them very pleasant for swimming and break for a picnic lunch (sandwich, yogurt, water, fruit and muesli bar). It is also good to know that the lakes abound in trout.
From the Big Lake, it is possible to continue mountaineer tours to Bioč (2,396m) and to Volujak (2,337m). Participants willing to continue hiking to Bioč and Volujak must be physically and mentally fit since these tours are quite demanding.
On the way back, we’ll make break for coffee in Pluzine and for swim in the Piva Lake.
Price does not include:
We haven’t included transfer from the Waterfall Rafting Centre to Pluzine, as it is more easy to continue travel after the trip in any directions without need to go back to the Waterfall Center. Anyway, the transfer could be organized upon request.
