LOCAL SCHNAPPS TASTING
Slovenia has a long culture of home distilling Schnapps. Every village had at least one distillation that used anything from fruits, wine, potatoes, berries, nuts, grass & herbs… some locals even used poisonous salamander to spike their product. The best schnapps is no doubt Pleterje Charterhouse Pear Brandy created by monks. Tasting includes 4 shots of quality local produce but can continue on “pay per shot” basis as long as you wish. If you decide to buy some bottles they will be delivered to your hotel free of charge.
WHITE WATER RAFTING
Just a 40 min drive from Ljubljana you find yourself in a completely different landscape. Alpine slopes and its rivers create rapids and canyons just perfect for supreme white water rafting, canyoning and other water-sport activities. We offer you two locations: easy-going Alpine lake-side Bled area or a little more demanding emerald Soča river.
The Žagar family have been focusing on the same thing for the last forty years: the well-being of their guests. This care involves the basic things, those which are served on plates and in glasses, as well as the less obvious things, such as the pleasant enjoyable atmosphere, friendly service and lively music. The harmonies to help even the largest mouthful go down smoothly were once provided by the thunderous tenor of the elder Žagar, a former boxer known in his fighting days as Pulinoga or Pullfoot. When it comes to basic things the dishes are always seasonal and based on the Slovenian inn-keeping tradition. The chef prepares them from carefully selected ingredients brought in to the Skaručna kitchen from farmers’ granaries and silos, from the cool store of the nearby hunting society and from the surrounding fields and forests. If you believe that there is no decent barbeque and grilling to be found north of the Istrian peninsula; if you are saddened by the lack of cured, expertly treated meat; if you are used to game with the texture and consistency of a shoe sole; and if you believe that ox meat should only be served at fêtes – it is high time for you to update your experience database so get the full experience, take your time and treat yourself to a whole afternoon or evening of excellent food. The fact is that it is best to visit Skaručna on an empty stomach and spend the following day fasting and praying.
If you have any time left before your flight you can spend it in town, then get picked up by our transfer company who will take you to the airport.
