The Škocjan Educational Trail is about a 2 km long circular path which will take about an hour’s walk and will require appropriate footwear. Here hikers will enjoy many attractions of the natural and cultural heritage of the Karst. Follow route markers in the shape of water droplets, which will take you around the beautiful park surrounding the Velika Dolina and Mala Dolina and through the villages of Matavun, Betanja and Škocjan. To learn more about the park, you might wish to stop and look at the information signs with text, photos and illustrations. On the way you will be able to enjoy the view of the neighbouring hills, collapse dolines, the intermittent Reka River, precipitous walls, mills on the river, the Okroglica abyss, the village pond and traditional Karst architecture. The educational trail concludes in front of the information centre in Matavun where you can buy tickets to visit the Škocjan Caves (LINK) and descend into the underworld of the Karst.
