We enjoy in what we’re doing!
Now that things are slowly winding down, it will be time to draw the line under another main season. Again: it was challenging, but very nice. Once again, we met a bunch of extremely pleasant and interesting people from all over the world. It’s important that we still enjoy what we do. Most guests feel that and many share it with us…
The beauties of the Karst
The time is just right for tasting the beauties of the Karst. Yesterday with a bike over Teran Trail in Dutovlje, to which we connected the Pliska Trail in Pliskovice. A bit cold, a bit shaken … so in the end we had to take care of our bellies at Ukmar in Dutovlje. How beautiful it must be in summer and autumn!
Backcountry skiing around Tržič
When snow conditions are favorable and the weather is kitchy, Tržič region is perfect to visit. For sledding, for backcountry skiing, for climbing with or without crampons or spikes, for whatever your heart desires. On such a day Ljubelj, for example, is full to the last parking space…
The beauties of Slovene Karst
We try to get to know Tržiško as much as possible all the time, but we are also attracted by other parts of our lovely country … Slovenia is really unsurpassed, its beauty is never fleeting.
From Base Camp to Stegovnik waterfall
Want to enjoy water, fresh air and peace at a nearby hidden gem? Then follow Stegovnik streambed and check this nice mountain waterfall, where you can even take a cool refreshing swim after a gorgeous hike over Košuta ridge.
Cross the longest Slovene mountain. Descend by bike over almost vertical trail. Paraglide off the edge of the mountain. Or only enjoy the luxury of trails through unspoiled nature and greet your almost forgotten friend silence. Tržič is the crossroads of three valleys and two waters, and when you discover the beauties of the region, it’ll become crossroads of your unforgettable trails, adventures and memories. When did a place you didn’t expect a lot from impress you so much, that you’re still happy to talk about it?

Run & Hike/Bike Tour & Pottery Workshop & ARP therapy
This summer enjoy your isolated holiday!
Base Camp lies in the middle of picturesque Upper Carniola village of Križe, alone at the foothills of astonishingly beautiful ridge of Mt. Kriška. With no crowds, so typical for Bled and other frequently visited nearby towns, but with all necessary infrastructure just a short drive away. In less than five minutes you’re in front of any supermarket from all major Slovene chains, at gas station, at pharmacy, … And less than fifteen minute drive away you’re at the starting point of so many beautiful mountain trails. At Base Camp you’ve got the whole Upper Carniola at your hand! We accept bookings of larger groups (up to 16 guests) until late May. We guarantee you isolation and peace … and also don’t worry – for our cleanliness and hospitality we’ve been getting the highest ratings on major reservation portals for years. Send us an email or give us a phone call, dis-connect to re-connnect!
Welcome overnight at Trans Karavanke!
Dear mountain bikers, when doing the charming Trans Karavanke MTB tour through Tržič area, between Jezersko and Mt. Stol, very welcome to stay over night and have a morning tea or coffee at our place!
Healthy, adventurous 2019!
We’re #superhost again!
We’ve started 2018 just like we ended 2017 – with recognition?
It feels good but we certainly don’t intend to rest on our laurels…
…and heroes of hospitality!
?Not only “superhosts”, we’re “heroes of hospitality”, too. And now enough of praise, since the criteria are set, let’s go to work, high season is coming…
Happy, healthy 2018!
This praise goes to each of us, especially to our dear guests. Thank you from the heart to all of you who participate to the story of Base Camp. Always welcome and may 2018 be your another favourite year!

Even below the roof fresh during summer!
Although summer temperatures in our Upper Carniola region are usually bearable, we anyway – for the good of our more sensitive guests – decided for a big investment: in the breakfast/dining room and in 3b bedroom on the 3rd floor we’ve placed air conditioning. From next summer on your stay in Base Camp even during the hottest of days will be controlled fresh!
YIPPYYYYYY YIPPYYYYYY YAAAAAAY!!!
Today, in the middle of August, Base Camp already reached number of night spents as in whole of the last year. We are veeery happy! And we’ve got overall pretty good reviews on all major booking portals. Thanks to all of our dear guests, to those, who can’t praise enough our views and breakfasts, and to those who are not completely satisfied (and you should tell this first to us:)! To first ones for stimulation, beautiful moments of joy and endless debates, and to others for motive and cognition, that things could be improved. Let’s go on … and, of course, very welcome!
Chillout corner is in order
These are probably the biggest two seating/reading bags in whole Gorenjska! At Base Camp we set up a nice, cozy chillout corner…
We were at Cows’ Ball in Bohinj
Each September, a remarkable event takes place in Slovenia’s Bohinj Valley. That’s when hundreds of cows – adorned with flowers, wreaths, and ribbons – make their way into the lowlands from surrounding high-altitude pastures. The season is over. Walking alongside cows are their herdsmen, as well as hundreds of locals and visitors, many in traditional Alpine dresses and other colorful clothing. In the valley the party turns even livelier. As the procession approaches the village of Ukanc, accordion groups and brass bands join the festivities to celebrate the cows’ return.
Creative ceramic hours
Join Barbara in her ceramic studio and feel soft clay between your fingers. You will learn how to transform a ball of clay into a tea cup.
Cobblers’ Sunday in Tržič
Tržič has an old tradition of preparing a Cobblers’ fair on the so-called Angel Sunday. The first Sunday in September this year marks the 47th ethno fair.
The tradition of the Cobblers’ Sunday is connected to an old custom when the shoemaker’s apprentices were promoted into assistants. A fair and a public festivity bring lots of traditional items, including shoes and other leather products, as well as local food and wine-tasting events for visitors to enjoy.
