Go for a short walk or hike at Lake Petelinje, a seasonal body of water. Because it remains one of the lowest lying of such lakes in the area, this one is usually among the last to lose its waters. It may be difficult to get to and around it at the height of the season and during high water levels, so come prepared with good walking shoes and appropriate clothing. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Lake Petelinje by using our Pivka trip itinerary app.
Lake Petelinje reviews
Like it was said before: it's nice, but no a must-see. And beware, in the summer half of the year, you probably won't be able to see it (the lake). :D more »
I came by car close to the village closest to the lake and there was only nice walk left. Great nature, special if the water is in the lake.... There are not many tourists around. The paths are also..... more »
Perfect relaxed place for chilling. If going with bike, be sure to bring HB mountain bike for gravel. Otherwise long peaceful walking trails suitable also for families and pets. Don't forget to buy homemade cheese at the local shop - nearby starting point - Ecocenter.
Seasonal lake beautiful in all forms :)
