A Tale of Cheese: Tradition on the Mountain

What is the exact route that milk, so bountifully provided by our cows, takes before ending on our plate? There are quite a few interesting and complex steps before fresh milk becomes aromatic cheese. Come to beautiful Mt Zajavornik, where our experienced cheesemaker Ciril will reveal the secrets of the process while you will take in beautiful views and enjoy a stroll through unspoiled nature.


Time passes more slowly on a mountain surrounded by picturesque peaks, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Life in the hills is closer to nature and to tradition, which is also reflected in the way cheese is made. The tradition of cheese-making will be introduced to you by a master cheesemonger who will explain the process of making this popular dairy product. You will complete the informative part of the visit with a hearty breakfast of home-made delicacies and soothe all your senses while walking across the picturesque plateau.
