Dolenjska is practically made for various forms of outdoor recreation, since it is less congested and has just the right dynamic for cycling. Because it is so soothingly forested, is ideal for hiking. Krka, Kolpa and other rivers and lakes provide swimming in natural pools, trips with kayaks, canoes, and rafting , as well as create idyllic natural beaches. Not only the experienced, but also amateur fishermen agree that the rivers and waters of Dolenjska are a picturesque and inexhaustible place for relaxation. Dolenjska has only one golf course, but it is a superior one, both in terms of its tidiness as well as placement into the quiet woods and waters. Silence and vastness offer refuge to the game.
To encounter a bear in Dolenjska is an everyday experience for the locals, but a different experience for guests. Since the whole Dolenjska is a green oasis, different forms of education should not be a surprise. Spiritual fitness in the woods, next to waters.
