    Although it is a town of only 5,000 people Idrija has plenty to offer; both in the town center, and surrounding region. Volunteers can learn about Idrija’s history by taking a guided tour in the old mercury mine, visiting the castle and its museum exhibitions, learning about the rich history of bobbin lace, enjoying traditional dishes such as Idrijski žlikrofi, and exploring the incredible surrounding nature, with plenty of possibilities for hiking, cycling, flyfishing, rock climbing and swimming. You can visit the protected Dive Jezero, or Wild Lake, with its rich plant life, a 3.5 km light forest walk from the hostel. If you’re looking for a more challenging hike, you can visit the mountain huts and hills, offering beautiful views of the valley. In winter, for some fresh air and adrenaline you can enjoy the Cerkno Ski Centre, 27 km from Idrija.

    Idrija is well connected to the Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, with regular bus lines daily. The coastal region is a 1.5 hour drive away by car, and for alpine enthusiasts Triglav National Park is also a 1.5 hour drive away.

    Come experience the Slovenian way of life, in our picturesque UNESCO town of Idrija! We look forward to hosting you!
