Obir Dripstone Caves
Mine tour by kayak
This underground adventure starts in front of the mining museum in Glančnik in Mežica. Visitors board a genuine mining train which takes from the museum through the 3.5 km long Gačnik tunnel and up to Unionski vpadnik slope mine. From here you descend for 95 m and go down the stairs that lead to water. At this point, all visitors receive the necessary protective equipment (neoprene boots, life jackets and mining helmets with a flashlight). Then you enter a flooded shaft where special kayaks for three persons are already waiting for you. Your guide leads you along a small underground river until you reach the magical underground lakes almost 700 m below the surface. Visitors can now enjoy the peaceful and pristine water and explore the underground labyrinth, submerged tunnels and excavation sites. To end your journey, you will follow a narrow passage, paddle through some minor rapids and arrive back at the starting point. The entire tour lasts 4 hours. One group can consist of max. 8 people. The age limit is 10 years. Visitors must wear appropriate clothing and walking shoes. Average temperature in the mine is 10 °C. Mine tour by kayak is only possible by prior arrangement.
