Hiking & Mountaineering


Silent landscape, gorgeous mountains, unique panorama, healthy and energizing mountain air, country kitchen from the backyard garden ... Spend unforgettable moments and relax away from mass tourism in our small Alpine village in the heart of the Slovenian Kamnisko-Savinjske Alps.

Let yourself be seduced by the silence and the fascination of the Slovenian Karavanke mountains and Kamnisko-Savinjske Alps which project up to 2,558 m above the see level and enjoy the freedom, peace and tranquility of pure nature starting from the organic farm Makek. Just one step from our door your adventure begins. Hiking guides, maps, as well as a few hot tips are collected for you in the foyer.

Whether scented and cheerful spring with blooming Alpine flora and lively birds singing, warm and pleasant summer, relaxing, colourful autumn with ripe fruits and vegetables from our garden, or winter snow-wild and celestial fascination with night walks under the clear sky with thousands of stars and delicious dinner in Makek's warm parlour - hiking in our nature makes fun in every season.

Our unique location offers a simple access to the natural features of our valley. Just a stone's throw away there is the highest Slovenian glacial waterfall Cedca. You will experience the magnificence and beauty of the white limestone Kamnisko-Savinjske Alps on your daily hiking trips. On the other side of the village, to the west, the Karavanke mountains are stretching. Here you can find the oldest sedimentary rocks of Slovenia, with an age of 395 million years. By contrast, you can observe the tuff stone with impressions of leaves and plants in it, as the youngest rock, in its formation even today.

Amidst all this beauty, as if voluntarily caught, lies our village Jezersko with its old farms, pastures, a small lake and the mineral water source that is rich in magnesium and, as they say, has helped so many villagers to their firm health.

The Slovenes are a hospitable people. So our villagers are happy to be useful by helping you find the right path or giving you information you have been searching for, if they only have enough time and speak your native language. But do not worry, at our farm you will get our personal advice, the guides and maps to facilitate your stay and to reach your chosen summit. You bet, your hiking holiday in Jezersko will certainly make fun!

Around the farmhouse there are many hiking possibilities, short or long ones, mountaineering hikes or climbing tours. For reaching chosen destination by your own, our mountain trails are well marked. For more adventure, however , you can rent a local professional tour guide.
