The circular trail is free of charge for individual visits – you can purchase a booklet with map and spaces for stamps or follow interesting tasks in the Nexto APP. The fairy trail runs over meadows, along streams and through a forest showing the natural and cultural features of Bohinj, and offers unforgettable and wonderful encounters with nature, fairytales and outdoor games. The guided version is available for groups.
The circular trail is free of charge for individual visits. You can experience the Zlatorog Fairy Trail on your own, and it can take an hour or a whole day. A booklet with fairytales, a map and empty spaces for stamps, which you can collect along the way, will be your guide along this captivating trail. For older children, the Nexto APP might be a more interesting choice.
We also provide professional guiding services for organised groups (kindergartens and primary schools) along the Zlatorog Fairy Trail. Guided tours, however, must be agreed in advance: call +386 (0)45 747 590 or send an e-mail to [email protected].
Along the fairy trail in Ukanc, you will find characters from local fairy tales. Each character is presented at a special site – there are seven on the official Zlatorog Fairy Trail in Ukanc, one on the car part at the Ukanc/Vogel/Savica Waterfall crossroad and one at the entry point to the Savica Waterfall. All the fairy tales presented in the brochure originated from the Bohinj area and have been adapted according to the original texts.
There are numerous activities that can be played along the fairy trail. They can also be played during family trips elsewhere in nature.
In your booklet, space is dedicated to collecting stamps next to each fairy tale character. Stamps can be found at presentation boards of each fairy tale character. Children collect stamps if they pass the tasks written on the boards next to the fairy tale characters.

Activities along the fairy trail are designed to encourage the use of the seven senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, feel, balance and kinaesthetics. Each fairy trail site focuses on one sense, however, this does not mean that you only have to use that particular sense.
Children experience different feelings while listening to fairy tales. Some are good and other
less pleasant, but they all are very beneficial and important.
The journey along the fairy trail also stimulates various forms of movement. It mostly emphasises the natural forms of movement like walking, running, jumping, climbing, spinning, swinging and crawling.
As legend has it, the healing yellow flowers, mentioned on the boards, have grown from the dust of Zlatorog’s horns. Together with other beauties of nature, they represent the treasure of Zlatorog.
